The greatest album by the greatest band.

A little bit tough to rank because I group some of the songs together. Definitely the only album with this many songs in my top 2,000.

07 | Here Comes the Sun (All-time #40)
02 | Something (All-time #93)
01 | Come Together (All-time #113)
04 | Oh! Darling (All-time #217)
14 | Golden Slumbers (All-time #266)
15 | Carry That Weight (All-time #266)
16 | The End (All-time #720)
05 | Octopus's Garden (All-time #1,010)
13 | She Came in Through the Bathroom Window (All-time #1,432)
11 | Mean Mr. Mustard (All-time #1,432)
12 | Polythene Pam (All-time #1,432)
08 | Because (All-time #1,653)
06 | I Want You (She's So Heavy) (All-time #1,933)
09 | You Never Give Me Your Money (All-time #1,934)
03 | Maxwell's Silver Hammer (All-time #3,456)
10 | Sun King (All-time #5,664)
17 | Her Majesty (Not going to rank a song that's 23 seconds long)

Admittedly, this has become my favorite Beatles album, over Revolver. I've always thought people who put Abbey Road at #1 weren't real Beatles fans, but now I'm one of them...

Great:
05 | Octopus's Garden (Emilien, you're my enemy :angry-nono: )
01 | Come Together
07 | Here Comes the Sun
02 | Something
14 | Golden Slumbers
06 | I Want You (She's So Heavy)
03 | Maxwell's Silver Hammer
15 | Carry That Weight
08 | Because
16 | The End

The rest:
09 | You Never Give Me Your Money
13 | She Came in Through the Bathroom Window
04 | Oh! Darling
11 | Mean Mr. Mustard
12 | Polythene Pam
10 | Sun King
17 | Her Majesty

Sort of hard to separate the parts of a suite.
I've sometimes thought about taking Abbey Road out of my top 100, but it hasn't happened yet.

You really shouldn't. It's the bomb.

Kinda strange to put something as short as Golden Slumbers that high in such a great album, but that is a beautiful, earnest and touching track.
