I dont mind it now really but when you were 18 it wasnt considered 'cool' to dig songs like that, and it gave the Stones fans added ammunition to use against The Beatles  ha2ha

Kev, when Abbey Road was released everyone was going around singing "Oh yeah!  Alright!" and tapping each other's head with their fists saying "Bang, Bang."  You should have seen it!

We were also ruining LPs and needles playing Beatles albums backward.  We were cool alright!   ;D

Somebody has taken the RockBand tracks and separated the individual tracks.

It is so cool hearing Abbey Road this way, just guitar tracks, drum tracks, etc.

I am sure if you look around on the net you will find this....

I have used Audacity for all my audio editing for years, great tool.

Seems like Audacity is meant for these files.  I saw a link at  http://www.casadejoe.com/files/G.%20Morrow/The%20Beatles%20-%20MOGG%20Files/

Then open them in Audacity

I'm updating my Beatles CDs and just got Abbey Road yesterday. What an improvement over my old CD! It made me remember why this shares the number 1 spot with Rubber Soul for me. That medley does it.  :)

My favorite songs from this album are: You Never Give Me Your Money,Golden Slumbers,Polythene Pam (I also wish there were more to this song),Maxwell's Silver Hammer and Here Comes The Sun.Oh! Darling is one of the worst Beatles songs ever,I honestly can't stand it.Other then that this album is pretty good,Octopus's Garden is my favorite Ringo song ever from all his others.

Oh! Darling is one of the worst Beatles songs ever,I honestly can't stand it.

Even though I completely do not share your view, I understand how you might feel this way.

Give the song a different perspective. I think I know what Paul was trying to accomplish in this song. If you listen to the vocals, Paul was trying to make a belt-em out screaming song. The piano is fairly simplistic. If you listen to at as a "melodic" song, there is not much there. If you imagine yourself in a small club with a singer and just his piano, the performance takes on a different slant.

This is something about many Beatles songs, that I think some people miss. I probably go on about this ad infinitum, but sometimes you have to take a step back. There are works of art that look horrible from one perspective, then when you look from a different angle and know what was going on in the artist's life and what he/she was attempting to communicate, the art takes on new meaning and can become beautiful. This process sometimes requires work.

I probably bored a few people with the above, and you probably didn't even read it.

Very well put. I honestly never thought about the song that way, but I still think it's one of their all-time best. It took me a few listens for it to sink in, but it was worth it.
