    It’s one of the few albums that I have to listen to all the way through without stopping.

    I'm waiting for the remix WITHOUT Maxwell's Silver Hammer.

    I like Maxwell's Silver Hammer ....
    Not the best song on the album, but hey, they can't all be the best ...

    I still have my original vinyl, in perfect playing condition. I had it on the turntable just a couple of weeks ago.

    I think MSH is way underrated. GRANNY MUSIC or not, it’s a classic Macca number...

    Not the greatest of songs, still some pretty nice guitar work there.

    It's actually the song my daughter and I danced to at her wedding - I know - odd choice - but for years when I drove her to her soccer matches she would always want to hear MSH as the last one before she got out of the car to get revved up.

    I've always said that Abbey Road hasn't aged at all... You could play that album for somebody who never heard it, and they'd think it came out yesterday.

    I too like Maxwell's Silver Hammer. My new truck has Sirius XM in it, and I play the Beatles channel on the weekends or when there's nothing else I fancy.

    MSH is catchy. I never really realized how much I liked the song.

    Back when I made cassettes for my vehicles I always left off MSH, then I slow-faded out IWY/SSH as soon as the singing stopped. Just call me sacrilegious.

    But I've always loved Honey Pie...

    I like maxwell’s it’s not as granny as other pmac songs and has those cool moog synth parts. It’s a guilty pleasure. Not nearly has granny as when I’m 64 or corny temporary secretary... why didn’t someone advise him against that corny song “I know hard it is for young girls to stay on the right path” haha so dumb

    There is a lot of filler on Abbey Rd.

    It’s a very MORBID tune. One of several fab songs that scared the crap out of me as a boy...

    Exactly my point about TWA through LET IT BE. All the punk rock attitude of the Sex Pistols and songs a mother could love. And comedy. Great comedy...
