Opener "Come Together" - the tune, stolen from Chuck Berry - is a spaced-out groove, driven along by Paul's insidious, funky bass and electric piano. Lennon closes the side with "I Want You," a heavy, experimental pop track. George Harrison also came into his own as a songwriter. John said "Something" was the best track on the album. Sinatra described it as "the greatest love song of the past 50 years." Mostly Abbey Road is a testimony to the strength and failings of Paul McCartney. His punchy, yet melodic bass playing is a revelation. But it's the medley which takes up most of side two where he delivers the goods. Most of the songs were fragments of discarded tunes which McCartney sewed into a rich quilt. So, even in their death throes, the Beatles were the greatest, pound-for-pound heavy-weights of pop.
