Okay, but prefer Joe Cocker's take on it.

Joe Bore sings better than Paul? Ha!

"The End" is very cool, cool guitars, vocals AND Ringo's drum solo (despite him hating to do it).

Of course Paul's voice is better than Joe Cocker's. I wouldn't want Cocker within a country mile of Yesterday, Eleanor Rigby, or Blackbird for example.
But a song about someone coming through a bathroom window, working at 15 clubs a day etc can be sung in an edgier style. Cocker as a croaker works well with this particular song (just my opinion!)

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".

9 votes spread across 4 songs.

This the The End (doo doo doo), my only friend, The End.

Vote off the song you like THE LEAST.

Tally on December 10

Come Together
Something
Oh! Darling
Octopus's Garden
I Want You (She's So Heavy)
Here Comes the Sun
Because
You Never Give Me Your Money
She Came In Through the Bathroom Window
Golden Slumbers

Round#1 Her Majesty November 17
Round#2 Maxwell's Silver Hammer November 19
Round#3 Sun King November 21
Round#4 Polythene Pam November 26
Round#5 Mean Mr. Mustard November 29
Round#6 Carry That Weight December 3
Round#7 The End December 7

I really like She Came In Through the Bathroom Window, but without the context of the "suite"... but I think my vote will go for "Golden Slumbers". It's inspired by a nursery rhyme, so  it's nice.. Just that... It's nice.

Actually saw McCartney on Tuesday night. It was his first Australian tour in around 25 years - and it was bloody amazing. Although for me personally Live And Let Die was the best performance, him performing the Abbey Road Suite at the end of the final encore was an experience Iíll never forget

"Come Together" - dislike it as the other snoozer "She's So Heavy". Btw, glad "Carry That Weight" & "She Came In Thru" played the game long than nadir "Polythene Pam" & "Mr. Mustard". Smiley
