No Joke - not too keen on PM's vocal on Hold Me Tight.

Run for your life - If I want to listen to blatant misogyny I'll listen to the Rolling Stones thankyaverymuch.

Maxwell's Silver Hammer - A song about a Mass Murderer diguised as a children's song.

As the old saying goes, One man's trash is another man's treasure.
i just want to say i disagree, especially with Hold Me Tight and Run For Your Life. that people see this song as nothing more than a set of redundant, sexist and misogynist lyrics doesn't make alot of sense.
i can see how you could get the wrong idea about Maxwells Silver Hammer, but it is a nice bouncy track.

hey 7 of 13, I asked for opinions, he/she gave it, (although I only asked for one lol) lets not argue about it or we'll be at it forever, everybody has theyre own opinion about the worst song. Lets respect others opinion without arguing, after all there is no best or worst its all subjective..
again, tell me this is some sort of a joke nimrod. Hold Me Tight is a fast rocker and a love song.
 ;yes

I don't have a 'wrong idea' - I have, like you, an opinion. Neither of which is 'correct'.

The Beatles themselves thought that "Hold Me Tight" was a poor song:

JOHN 1980: "That was Paul's. Maybe I stuck some bits in there... I really don't remember. It was a pretty poor song and I was never really interested in it either way."

PAUL 1988: "I can't remember much about that one. Certain songs were just 'work' songs... you haven't got much of a memory of them. That's one of them. You just knew you had a song that would work, a good melody. 'Hold Me Tight' never really had that much of an effect on me. It was a bit Shirelles."

PAUL circa-1994: "'Hold Me Tight' was a failed attempt at a single which then became acceptable album filler."

Of course, I didn't mean to change your opinion. I just wanted to show that we all have different opinions and even a songwriter can dislike his/her own song. For example "Every Little Thing" is one of my favourite songs and Paul said that it was just an album filler.

actually no, I like the Yes version but its one of my favourite ever vocals from John, absolutely brilliant vocal, he was very much on form on Beatles For sale imo

I prefer it having an acoustic guitar as well...

Ok. I've always found it curious that John sings on that one, as it was mostly written by Paul.

Yeah, I saw the whole match! Good for Tevez and MC that he came back, but hope this is not too late for the Citizens. They also suffered the absence of Kun Ag├╝ero during some past games; in my opinion Kun is now one of the Top 5 football players in the world.

Oh, and 'Maxwell's Silver Hammer' has got to be up there. This song is stuck in my head, after listening to Anthology 3 last night. UGH, it's idiotic and it keeps Abbey Road from being near perfect.

Add a vote for Run For Your Life. After such an incredible album, to end it that way is so disappointing. The Beatles usually were so good at ending an album...Twist and Shout, I'll Be Back, Tomorrow Never Knows, A Day in the Life, The End, etc. But Run For Your Life is bad. If it had been in the middle of the album somewhere, I could've looked past it. But as the last song on such a groundbreaking, influential album, it bothers me.

All You Need Is Love - The only part I like from that song is at the end when John sings a little part from She Loves You  ha2ha
