There has been a lot about this album, this week. Because on 26th September it was 50 years since it was released. It was released in US 50 years ago on 1st October. I have found this out from googling and also it is significant because it last studio album that was recorded by all 4 Beatles together.
In this morning’s metro there was a critic of album by a 16year old.
As I have never listened to whole album before, tonight I decided to.
The track list is as follows:
1. Come Together *
3. Maxwell’s Silver Hammer
4. Oh! Darling
5. Octopus’s Garden
6. I Want You (She’s So Heavy)
7. Here Comes the Sun *
9. You Never Give Me Your Money
10. Sun King
11. Mean Mr. Mustard
12. Polythene Pam
13. She Came in Through the Bathroom Window
14. Golden Slumbers
15. Carry That Weight
16. The End
17. Her Majesty
It turns I had only previously heard two of the songs before, which I have asterixed. The rest of songs are rather slow.
I did tonight also listen to Sara Cox Beatles request hour. I also enjoyed Yesterday film. So I have grown to like Beatles. I did not as a teenager. I can remember as a teenager getting bored touring Beatles spots in Liverpool. I was unimpressed by empty Cavern club. That year there was a documentary series about Beatles on a Sunday night which I refused to watch. But I have subsequently been to Abbey Road which features on Abbey Road cover (with zebra crossing), Penny Lane, Lennon’s wall in Prague, seen Lennon’s statue in Cuba, a childhood home of Paul McCartney and John Lennon.
