OK, so now is a good time to admit to ranking Abbey Road as one of my two favourite Beatles albums (Sgt Pepper is the other). The first side of the album is full of great songs while second side is a medley of short, sharp – in many cases, unfinished, songs that end with, appropriately, The End (as longs you don’t count the hidden track that comes at the very end of side 2).

Of the songs on side 1, there are a couple of absolute standouts – and this is one of them. Very different to so many of the other songs around it and more than capable of standing up in its own right as a single, if they chosen to do so.
