Actually I quite like the song. I may be imagining it but I think I hear some Paul influences in the chord progression and melody. And yes I think there is quite an ok melody but Kanye and Rhianna do their best to obscure it.  It doesn't make me like them as artists any better.

If the Record Industry of the time wanted four or five 45s off an album, I don't see how The Beatles would have changed it or, judging by the marketing of McCartney's albums over the years, even if they would have wanted to change it.

I can think of no major (i.e. shifted product worldwide) post-60s artist who put out distinct 45s and LPs.

I don't think The Beatles had any more taste in the 60s than any of their rivals. They were all from the same stock.

A brace of tracks forming just one single (not several) at a time when The Beatles were already losing interest and bailing out of their own group identity. The Sixties HAD to end; The Beatles didn't have to end with them.

They bent and flowed with the times I grant you, but to believe that, had they stayed together, they wouldn't have remained a major cog shaping (not inventing) the wheel of the music industry IS to succumb to the trap of assuming those hideous 70s/80s would have been no different to how we now remember them. I firmly believe a music scene containing an extant Beatles would have evolved somewhat differently to the way it did. But we'll never truly know. They would have absorbed some emerging styles but initiated and steered others.... don't imagine them with eye-liner, shoulder pads and back-combed mullets - they always had more taste. 

Not having a pop at anyone by the way... I respect all views.

Haven't fallen into any trap, Mr. Mustard.

'Abbey Road' was released on 26th September, 1969 - Something/Come Together was released as a 45 on 31st October, 1969.....The Beatles, within their own era, had ALREADY succumbed to this 'lazy, unimaginative practice'.

If, however, I do fall into a trap I'll be the first to tell you!
