Ringo’s fills through the entirety of Abbey Road are masterful. I’m always blown away about how the drums flutter in Something . The way he changes rhythm and drives the Medley forward is also amazing. 

  

That's why I did the drum fill medley last year...

Personally, I love the middle-eight of Yes, It is. The part that goes "I could be happy..." Chills down my spine.

By the way, I'm new here

My name is Vicente and I absolutely adore the Beatles!!!

Hi @bottleofdenial , welcome! I agree, that's a great part of the song. It really showcases the full beauty of John's voice.

Love one another.

The End , which some of you mentioned before, is also one of my favourite ones. In fact, it's one of my fav music pieces in rock history!!!

Thanks @Getbackintheussr !!!

Beautiful track...One of the best of the White Album . It always seem to me that normal people (meaning not obsessive fans like us) don't know that song. And it's great!!!

It doesn't get a whole lotta airplay...  whether one interprets the "gun" literally as if you'd just shot someone, or if John's talking about his own penis...  and probably the most likely interpretation that he's going on about a syringe ("I need a fix cause I'm going down")...  it's understandable why no one wanted to touch it, no matter how sensational the track was...  ironically, it was Sir George Martin who'd first inspired the lyrics for he had a gun magazine lying around the studio where John first read the title "Happiness Is A Warm Gun " somewhere in it...  he thought "what a fantastic insane thing to say!" and proceeded to run with his patented wordplay...:-)

John's vocals when he sings the title of 'Yes It Is ' always give me shivers. Man, he was so good.
