And I Love Her should have had harmonies. That would definitely make it one of my favourite songs.

They had hired a scriptwriter for Magical Mystery Tour and John never fell for "Yoko".

I wish they had ended Rubber Soul with In My Life, and put wait, If I Needed Someone, and Run For Your Life earlier in the album. They should have given George some back up vocals on Don't Bother Me, that would have helped it a lot. And my last complaint is that they bass isn't noticeable enough on a few early albums.

Paul should've written a song to his 1967 self when he was 64.

I almost wish they would've used harmonicas/mouth organs in The End, just for the sheer sake of bookending the band's career. And I wish Let It Be was released before Abbey Road, so The End really could have been The End. But I think the Beatles' ending was perfect as it was, with the rooftop concert.

Though if I had to nitpick, they should've done some earlier songs too.

Come Together line where John sings:

"Come together/ Right now/ Over me"

 

It just BEGS for some kind of cool, catchy chorus to start except for repeating itself all the way through. It's kinda disappointing to wait for it... and nothing comes. Eh.

^ Pretty sure it is, I think the point is that it's very short and rather anti-climactic. I like it, though.

^ Considering how long those songs are together, they could have added even more songs: The Inner Light and Junk, and possibly yet another.

So long as What's The New Mary Jane isn't on there. Not a fan of that one at all.

NO! I love Good Night! I know I'm one of the few, but I love it.

As for Come Together, I like how it builds up and give you the hope of something bigger...and then it's gone. I like that. Leaves you waiting for more while you know nothing's gonna come.

I know, that's what annoys me. It puts you on, and you're ready for more... and then nothing. Which just proves how genuis it is. Few can achieve that emotion.

I always wanted the four of them to shout 'Hey!' at the very end of Ob-Bla-Di-Ob-Bla-Da. The Marmalade shouted it when they did a cover of the song. I just always thought it gave the song a nice touch in The Marmalade's version.

...And on the Marmalade version they sing 'if you want some jam' instead of 'fun'.  I Like Marmalade (the spread and the band!) especially 'Reflections of my life'. :-)

Nah, not necessary for me.  I would, however, have preferred that the line 'As long as I have you near me' had been 'As long as I have her near me.'  It just seems rather odd to suddenly, briefly go into the second person.  a-hard-days-night-john-7

I wish Let It Be/Get Back had been finished and released before Abbey Road. Mostly because AR is such a perfect last album. Not bashing on LIB, I love it, I just wish AR was the last to be released.
