Welcome, @beatlesisluv! (If beatlesisluv and luv is all we need, then could we say beatles is all we need?)

We have a thread based on a similar idea. http://www.beatlesbible.com/fo.....olo-album/ You may enjoy that conversation.

No since Paul has quite a few songs on the album including a large chunk of the Medley

Thank you, AD40. I guess I wasn't awake when I responded.

Yeah, what Annadog40 said.  The last half of the album was nearly all Paul.

I'm Necko.  I'm like Ringo except I wear necklaces.

I'm also ewe2 on weekends.

Most likely to post things that make you go hmm... 2015, 2016, 2017.

Outside of George's two superb contributions ("Something" and "Here Comes The Sun") and John's supremely funky "Come Together" and unearthly beautiful "Because" (his two unarguably great songs amidst a few mediocre contributions to the record), the album practically comes across as a McCartney solo album.  For me anyhow.

I get what you're saying and I sort of agree, but on closer examination, weren't for example "Mean Mr. Mustard" and "Polythene Pam" also John songs? As well as "Sun King" and "I Want You" as well? (At least they seem to be to me).  However, even so, I agree it does seem that Paul's hand was strong on the album and I don't doubt that he consciously said to himself "Okay, the Beatles are winding down, let's make our last album super strong" and went about ensuring that in his reportedly micro-managing way. (Although Let It Be came out last, it was not recorded last, is my understanding...)

A ginger sling with a pineapple heart,

a coffee dessert, yes you know it's good news...

Are we forgetting I Want You (She's So Heavy)?? That song is one of the high points in their discography (and it's not even the best song on the record)

Half of what I say is meaningless
