I say Ringo is best dressed.

This made me think again - George and Ringo were the best. I find the Octopus's Garden, Something and Here Comes The Sun the loveliest songs here. But part of the genius goes to incredible track listing. After long, dark I Want You, George splashes us with warm sun... incredible.

I've got to say George. My friends that can't even name the four Beatles know Here Comes The Sun.

i bet they know some other songs too

Not from Abbey Road, though. That's easily the most famous, only Come Together even comes close to touching it.

I'd venture to I agree with several other people that Something comes pretty close too.  That's two George songs out of the 3 most famous on Abbey Road

I have to give the nod to George, for writing those songs and his playing throughout the album.  He has a lot of good jams.  A close 2nd is Ringo, followed by Paul, then John.  John last?  Someone had to be.

I think this is Ringo's best album.  He's good on MMT and Pepper's -too.

I find it very interesting and a tribute to the power of their muse(s) that they were able to get together and give it their all for Abbey Road after the Let it Be fiasco.

Half of what I say is meaningless...

And it's making me feel like my trousers are torn

Lovely songs……..

 

But they are not 'Abbey Road' to me.

I agree with you about it Inner Light. They are both very lovely. However, Abbey Road is not the best-selling Beatles album. Ever heard of Sgt. Pepper?

I would say George because his guitar playing is truly what made Abbey Road stand out to me, along with his use of the moog and of course his songs. AR also has his best vocals in The Beatles IMO. All-around I love everything he did on that album, and I wish we could've seen that side of him develop more.

@thisbirdhasflown If you're talking about in the UK then Sgt. Pepper comes out on top, however worldwide sales and US sales both have Abbey Road as the best-selling Beatles album. So, it depends on which best-selling list you go for (or were brought up with, Americans will always have a different list of the best sellers as the catalogue was so different). I tend to go for the official worldwide listing, which Abbey Road tops.

Ah the joys of Beatle questions. What was their first UK #1? Is Paul dead? Who plays bass on 'Old Brown Shoe'? Was Pete sacked for being just too damn irresistible to the fans? What's their biggest selling album? Why was John so talented and the others little more than monkeys touched by his awesomeness?

I go by the certified sales list, and excluded as it's a compilation, rather than one of the original albums.

is actually the best-selling Beatles album with certified sales of 21.6 million. Abbey Road 14.3 million. Sgt. Pepper 13.1 million.

There is some dispute over the accuracy of the figures, with being the most accurate purely because of when it was released. Those are, however, the official sales figures.

Though all figures are obviously higher now.

Curious how well the Red/Blue albums sold! apple01

Well, George wrote the most popular songs that appear on Abbey Road

But I also really like Paul with songs such as Golden Slumbers and Oh! Darling, etc.

So for me, it would be a tie between George and Paul.

 

Best dressed: either Ringo or Paul. Well if Paul would still be wearing the sandals, I would probably go for Ringo.

The answer is obviously Pete Best. I'm pretty sure he was on Abbey Road at some point
