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".

12 votes spread across 4 songs.

This song,  I love. It reminds me of my youngest son who would sing it all the time when he was in preschool.

Octopus's Garden


When my uncle used to babysit my sister and me, he'd put this on (among other kid friendly songs) and we'd sing and dance to it. So for sentimental reasons I'm not ready to let it go just yet... so my vote goes to You Never Give Me Your Money.

This would be a very easy choice for me if not for George's incredible guitar work and some nice background vocals...

There’s so much going for it, so much that I love...but I was never impressed with the lyrics. The title itself is kinda lame.
