One wonders then how to maintain such a level of quality but it is without counting on the famous ” Medley » which includes the last 9 titles of the album. Consisting of very short songs, even unfinished and chained to each other, I’m not far from thinking that it is its peak even if I believe I have already said that several times in this article for other songs. It opens with ” You Never Give Your Money carried by McCartney’s piano, a ballad that races to an almost hillbilly rhythm in the middle before changing the melody once again. From the great McCartney at the height of his talent as a pop melodist. It is the longest piece of the medley with its 4 minutes which end in a bucolic atmosphere, sound tissue of transition with the magnificent ” Sun King where the vocal harmonies once again work wonders. The rhythm picks up with the very short and typically Lennonian ” Mean Mr. Mustard » electrified by the bass fuzz of Macca which follows « Polythene Pam always from Lennon and always very short. The title ends with a solo inspired by Harrison. On this medley, the Beatles manage to chain titles, all successful, with yet very varied atmospheres. Indeed the transition with She Came in Through the Bathroom Window written by McCartney seems to go without saying, we change the title almost without realizing it and for good reason, the two songs were recorded in one take. There are, however, 3 seconds of silence before McCartney’s piano introduces the magnificent ” Golden Slumbers soon followed by vocals and a string section before Ringo Starr’s drums came on stage to announce the chorus. McCartney is still at the top here, going from intimacy to a form of bombast never indigestible. Great art. We pass without transition to the complex ” Carry That Weight » which begins like a song taken in chorus in a stadium before the theme of « You Never Give Your Money » reappears at the bend of a verse thus closing the loop. But there is still time to finish this aptly named medley. The End since the last title of the last album recorded by the Beatles. It is also the last time the four will meet together in the studio but also the only song where you can hear a Ringo Starr drum solo. Another originality, each of the Beatles (except Ringo) play their guitar solo, inspired and full of energy. The title ends with an orchestrated end where the last sentence that we will hear on a Beatles album will be ” And in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make “. “The End” really? Well no, because ultimate originality, “Abbey Road” includes the first hidden song in the history of pop with ” Her Majesty who arrives by surprise after 15 seconds of silence. Oh not for long, just 23 seconds, while Paul McCartney sings a lovely ode to the Queen. And there you have it, curtain on the most exceptional side ever produced.
