Abbey Road: 8 Reasons Why It’s My Favourite Album!
This was inspired by an article I recently read on NME, for awhile this has been my favourite album of all time and here’s why:
1. The bass riff in the opening track, ‘Come Together’
The opening bass riff by Paul McCartney in ‘Come Together’ with John Lennon singing “Shoot me…” is the perfect introduction to any album I have ever heard…
2. Paul’s vocals in ‘Oh! Darling’
I love this song overall and is arguably one of the songs I would’ve loved to see them perform live the most, there’s something about his voice that sounds satisfyingly exhausting.
3. ‘Here Comes the Sun’ always brightens up my day!
The title speaks for itself, I love listening to this song. It to me just sounds so complete and that if you were to add anything else, I feel like the whole thing would just fall apart.
4. The Medley!
The idea for the Medley is one perfect example of why Paul McCartney doesn’t get enough credit for his contribution to The Beatles. This is my favourite part of the album, I sometimes just play the Medley section rather than the entire album. I just love how every track in the Medley smoothly transitions between one and another…
5. Sun King
All the vocals and the lyrics of this song create such a strong visual image in my head every time I listen to it…
6. Golden Slumbers/Carry That Weight!
This recently became my favourite track on the album, I absolutely love this song and the slow build up. Paul’s vocals are on bloody point, there’s something so heart-warming about his voice… and when it transitions into ‘Carry That Weight’ with George’s guitar solo… omg…
7. The Guitar Solos and Drums of ‘The End’
Each guitar solo played by Paul, John and George was absolutely epic… and Ringo Starr’s drumming was on point for the type of song it was… Such a great ending to the album!
8. The Hidden Track!
‘Her Majesty’ made me giggle when I first heard it, it sounds so sweet and innocent but… lol
Cubs right-hander Ed Reulbach pitches two shutouts in the same day, blanking the Brooklyn Superbas in the opener 5-0 on a five-hitter and 3-0 on three hits in the nightcap. The entire doubleheader is played in less than three hours.
