Maybe Ringo didn't have any Let It Be songs to focus on drumming and not singing and playing drums at the same time? Smokin Chains , May 22, Location: United States Of America.

Therefore, we must conclude that Octopus Garden should remain on Abbey Road.
Variety reported that the "Fab Four" returning to the Number One spot on Britain's Official Charts Company with their 50th anniversary editions of the album, marked "the longest period of time for an album to return to Number One in the UK after a record-breaking 49 years and days. Amazingly, the Beatles smashed their own record that was previously reached back in when their Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band collection returned to the top spot after 49 years and days.
But then again it's a bloody cool album. In January it was announced that for the third year in a row, Abbey Road remained the best selling vinyl album. That one is my favorite because I just love all those bits and pieces that weren't full songs that John Lennon and Paul McCartney had been working on and pulled all together -- 'Mean Mr. By the time of the Abbey Road sessions, which began in earnest in mid, the group had been in the slow process of breaking up since their return from India the previous year, and struggled through 's "White Album" -- as well as the month-long movie shoot that resulted in 's Let It Be album and film.
By the spring of John Lennon was drifting further away, after marrying Yoko Ono and embarking on the first of several anti-war "bed in" events. Paul McCartney was eager that the group not end on the sour note that had become the Let It Be project, and rallied the group to produce an album on par with classics like Rubber Soul , Revolver, and Sgt.
Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. The seeds for the Abbey Road album lay in the January Let It Be album and film project -- which was still unreleased when the Abbey Road sessions commenced. George Harrison recalled during The Beatles Anthology that it was actually the group's decision to better their work on Let It Be for their official followup to 's "White Album": ["Well, I think the deal was through Let It Be , it was like, I left, and we got back on the basis of we've gotta just finish it up and make it tidy, so I got back on that basis.
Then everybody decided we ought to do one better album. Let It Be was such an unhappy record, really -- even though there are some great songs on it -- I really thought that was the end of the Beatles and I thought I would never work with them again.
I thought, 'What a shame to go out like this. I guess it was happy because everybody knew it was going to be the last. Powered by OnRad. Think you know music? Test your MusicIQ here! In Lyrics.

My personal album top by mietersemichiel. Here we meet another character inspired by real events. In this case, "she" refers to multiple Beatles fanatics who broke into McCartney's house via a ladder to the window and stole some of his pictures and pants. This song also drops the narrative arc pretense. Instead, McCartney seems to be self-consciously addressing the end of the Beatles; "Once there was a way to get back home" is the lyric of someone who knows they're bidding goodbye to something special that they can never return to.
As with "Golden Slumbers," McCartney seems to be speaking to the end of the Beatles and acknowledging the burdens of fame and business that will plague them for "a long time. An appropriate title for the final proper song on the Beatles' farewell album, "The End" is also a minor musical journey from the Beatles' first album to their last.
After 14 seconds of silence, a brief guitar clank reminiscent of the "A Day in the Life" finale introduces a goofy sketch of a song about a boy needing to get drunk enough in order to tell the Queen he loves her. Although the song ends with a chord that almost sounds like a flubbed note, the strange beginning and ending to "Her Majesty" both make sense when you listen to it sandwiched between "Mustard" and "Pam. An engineer tagged the excised song onto the end of a tape, and McCartney liked the effect so much after hearing it played back that he decided to end the album on it.
It was not listed on the original album track list, making it the first high-profile hidden track in rock. While the inclusion of "Her Majesty" irked some fans and critics who felt the album would have been better off wrapping with the self-conscious, pristine climax of "The End," that's part of its genius.
This half-song subverts the seriousness and formality of a proper finale -- and ends the Beatles' career with a reminder that despite everything, the Beatles always walked around with a knowing smirk.
