The final Beatles album (though Let It Be, recorded months earlier, would be  released in 1970).

Quote
Abbey Road is the eleventh studio album by English rock band the Beatles, released on 26 September 1969 by Apple Records. The recording sessions for the album were the last in which all four Beatles participated. Although Let It Be was the final album that the Beatles completed before the band's dissolution in April 1970, most of the album had been recorded before the Abbey Road sessions began.[1] A double A-side single from the album, "Something"/"Come Together", released in October, topped the Billboard chart in the US.
Abbey Road is a rock album[2] that incorporates genres such as blues, pop, and progressive rock,[3] and it makes prominent use of the Moog synthesizer and the Leslie speaker. Side two contains a medley of song fragments edited together to form a single piece. The album was recorded amid a more enjoyable atmosphere than the Get Back/Let It Be sessions earlier in the year, but there were still frequent disagreements within the band, particularly over Paul McCartney's song "Maxwell's Silver Hammer". John Lennon had privately left the group by the time the album was released and McCartney publicly quit the following year. A 16-minute medley of several short songs comprise the majority of side two, closing with the lyric "and in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make".

Just 8 votes spread across 4 songs.

Clang! Clang! 5 votes for Maxwell's Silver Hammer came down upon his own  head.

Vote off the song you like THE LEAST.

Tally on November 21

Come Together

Oh! Darling

I Want You (She's So Heavy)
Here Comes the Sun

Golden Slumbers

The End

Round#1 Her Majesty November 17
Round#2 Maxwell's Silver Hammer November 19

My third vote is going to go for all the cuendo para mucho mi amores out there. Sun King

Maxwell was recorded August 6. It was the last Beatles session John attended for a song that wasn't his. It was the most expensive recording the Beatles ever made which angered Lennon further. Ringo said that sessions for the song were the most horrible sessions he ever worked on. George couldn't stand the song either. The recording of this song was a microcosm of every COMPLEX reason the Beatles split. It was the figurative cornerstone that collapsed over their heads as a group. No citations needed. Do some research. Smiley
Thanks for the info. But, I'd like to hear the real reason you vote "Maxwell" against. Never mind the break-up, why to you it's the lesser track?

Coz it's my "least favorite".   Air Quotes

Source? I recall there being many reasons. Beatles split is complex issue.

Yep. Sometimes RR's posts come across as needlessly harsh and tactless. I am inclined to believe  it is a language barrier issue.

It's just a game folks. Have fun with it.
I knew you'd agree with it. So it's bad thing to ask people why they dislike, in this case, "Maxwell"? Read the previous detailed posts, I explained everything.

I did not say not vote against "Maxwell" or sth. I merely try to understand, you know, why the dislike towards it. So it's still fun PLUS questions.

Discussion is good. Lets just be more mindful of how we express ourselves to one another. I know of 3 people who stopped playing the game because they felt like people were taking things to personally and it was sucking the fun from the thread.

I'm not saying it's a bad thing to disagree with others' tastes.
I didn't really say it's not bad thing to disagree - naturally it isn't. I said it's not bad thing to ask why poster A dislikes song B, that they don't just say they don't like it but bring details & give full explanation. As I said, I'm curious. & again, people everywhere in the Internet - Smiley, PS, Youtube etc. - show shock, amazement, surprise at smb. saying they don't like their favorite song. "Wow, I never thought I'd see someone not liking [song title]" - posts like this everywhere. Then people ask why they don't like that song. So, it isn't just me who asks for explanation.

but you, at times, seem to take others' opinions / tastes a little harder.
You're wrong. If you don't read attentively it's your fault, not mine.
Read the above but it's really repetition.

That's what I'm talking about.  Like I said, it could be a language barrier issue.  But, I make a point, and your response is that I "don't read attentively."

Even despite the points given it's still one of the weaker songs? You mentioned it with "Her Majesty" but it's strange since HM is really inconsequential when "Maxwell" is fully realized Beatles song with everybody present in the mix. There's songs the same caliber or in similar vein as HM that are weaker than "Maxwell". F.ex. is "Polythene Pam" stronger track than "Maxwell"? & any of the short segment songs? This logic is beyond me.

Changed Maxwell to I Want You (which is a freaking awesome song).

I will be voting Maxwell off next. Why?

Because if you want to blame someone or something for breaking up Beatles look no further than Maxwells Super Duper Swinging Hammer.

Her Majesty actually would've been a great fit for the McCartney LP. 

I never thought that but I can totally hear that song between The Lovely Linda and That Would Be Something.

I agree.

Stay tuned for the penultimate (though technically final) Beatles Studio Album.

Gonna vote for Birthday.  Undecided


The writing was clearly on the wall. This was the beginning of the end...

We are going to split the album in two, so round #11 is Disc 1 and round #12 will be Disc 2.

Quote
The Beatles, also known as the White Album, is the ninth studio album by English rock group the Beatles, released on 22 November 1968. A double album, its plain white sleeve has no graphics or text other than the band's name embossed,[a] which was intended as a direct contrast to the vivid cover artwork of the band's earlier Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. Although no singles were issued from The Beatles in Britain and the United States, the songs "Hey Jude" and "Revolution" originated from the same recording sessions and were issued on a single in August 1968. The album's songs range in style from British blues and ska to tracks influenced by Chuck Berry and by Karlheinz Stockhausen.

On release, The Beatles received favourable reviews from the majority of music critics, but other commentators found its satirical songs unimportant and apolitical amid the turbulent political and social climate of 1968. The band and Martin have since debated whether the group should have released a single album instead. Nonetheless, The Beatles reached number one on the charts in both the United Kingdom and the United States and has since been viewed by some critics as one of the greatest albums of all time.

4 smilers are going to be the poopers to this Birthday party.

Welcome back Smilers! Here we are at the final round for disk 2. Please VOTE FOR which of the remaining tracks is YOUR FAVORITE!!!


Tally on November 9

Mother Nature's Son
Helter Skelter
Revolution 1

Round#1 Revolution 9 October 3
Round#2 Everybody's Got Something To Hide (Except For Me and My Monkey) October 7
Round#3 Long, Long, Long October 12
Round#4 Sexy Sadie October 16
Round#5 Honey Pie October 20
Round#6 Savoy Truffle October 23
Round#7 Cry Baby Cry October 26
Round#8 Good Night October 31
Round#9 Yer Blues November 3
Round#10 Birthday November 5

I am utterly stumped now. I like every single one of the tracks which are left equally.

I love Revolution. It's iconic. It sounds like no other song... except for the single version of Revolution which is superior in just about every way.

I like Helter Skelter. It's touted by some as the first Heavy Metal song... Whether it is or isn't, it's bleak and, like some  Beach Boys, it is tainted a bit by the Manson mythos.

My pick for survivor has a wonderful melody. I never get sick of singing along with it. I also like the sparse orchestration with the light brass section.

For me, "Mother Nature's Son" deserves to be the survivor of Disc 2.

This infuriatingly brief snippet is from the utterly wonderful "Savoy Truffle", which has most cruelly been voted out at the "Survivor" topic. Great lyrics, fantastic sax lines, great ambience. Folks, please reconsider!  

It hasn't been and it's not about to be.

Well, that's a relief. Thanks, B.E. I don't usually follow the "Survivor" topic so it's all a bit over my head. Grin

Fingers and other appendages crossed that it stays not voted out...

Voted off today.  Cry  LOL

The writing was clearly on the wall. This was the beginning of the end...

We are going to split the album in two, so round #11 is Disc 1 and round #12 will be Disc 2.

Quote
The Beatles, also known as the White Album, is the ninth studio album by English rock group the Beatles, released on 22 November 1968. A double album, its plain white sleeve has no graphics or text other than the band's name embossed,[a] which was intended as a direct contrast to the vivid cover artwork of the band's earlier Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. Although no singles were issued from The Beatles in Britain and the United States, the songs "Hey Jude" and "Revolution" originated from the same recording sessions and were issued on a single in August 1968. The album's songs range in style from British blues and ska to tracks influenced by Chuck Berry and by Karlheinz Stockhausen.

On release, The Beatles received favourable reviews from the majority of music critics, but other commentators found its satirical songs unimportant and apolitical amid the turbulent political and social climate of 1968. The band and Martin have since debated whether the group should have released a single album instead. Nonetheless, The Beatles reached number one on the charts in both the United Kingdom and the United States and has since been viewed by some critics as one of the greatest albums of all time.

2 pixletwin: Thanks to the detailed answer. Point-by-point:

Can't stand "Cold Turkey" since 1st listen. Don't like as a whole Plastic Ono Band. I didn't hear anything as cool by John as "Jet" - it's rocker thru & thru. I'm glad Paul still sings it.

"Just Like Starting Over" rocks? Hm, not sure about it.

It's very sporting of you to say I'm "dogmatically" anti-John but I hope you're sitting right now as I do like some of his songs. F.ex. "God", "Crippled Inside", "Dear John", "Mother" (Anthology Ascot version), to tell just few.

Yes, I did say I like positive music. What you're trying to say there? Can't rockers be positive? Aren't there positive rockers? To me, perfect rocker is sth. fun, full of energy, catchy, not overly pointlessly long till you get bored by it, with too much guitar soloing which yells "Coz we can!". "Jet" fits the "perfect rocker" bill. You clearly like deep stuff, a la "Cold Turkey". Which, btw, is YOUR opinion. It isn't fact if you read lotsa people/ critics say it. It's too just THEIR opinions, obviously. Sure we can agree to that?

You were comparing RAM. None of the songs you mention are from RAM. Wink

Well I'd be lying if I said  your opinion wasn't interesting, to say the least. Lips Sealed
Which John solo song you've got in mind against, for example, rockers in Ram?

And yes, Dear John is a great little vignette. Spooky too. Almost like he had premonitions.
