You never give me your money
You only give me your funny paper
and in the middle of negotiations
you break down

I never give you my number
I only give you my situation
and in the middle of investigation
I break down

Out of college, money spent
See no future, pay no rent
All the money's gone, nowhere to go
Any jobber got the sack
Monday morning, turning back
Yellow lorry slow, nowhere to go
But oh, that magic feeling, nowhere to go
Oh, that magic feeling
Nowhere to go
Nowhere to go

One sweet dream
Pick up the bags and get in the limousine
Soon we'll be away from here
Step on the gas and wipe that tear away
One sweet dream came true... today
Came true... today
Came true... today...yes it did
One two three four five six seven,
All good children go to Heaven

--

Here comes the Sun King.
Ev'rybody's laughing
ev'rybody's happy.
Here comes the Sun King.

Quando paramucho mi amore de felice carathon.
Mundo paparazzi mi amore cicce verdi parasol.
Questo abrigado tantamucho que canite carousel.

--

Mean Mister Mustard sleeps in the park
Shaves in the dark trying to save paper
Sleeps in a hole in the road
Saving up to buy some clothes
Keeps a ten bob note up his nose
Such a mean old man
Such a mean old man

His sister Pam works in a shop
She never stops, she's a go-getter
Takes him out to look at the queen
Only place that he's ever been
Always shouts out something obscene
Such a dirty old man
Such a dirty old man

--

Well you should see Polythene Pam
She's so good-looking but she looks like a man
Well you should see her in drag dressed in her polythene bag
Yes you should see Polythene Pam
Yeah yeah yeah

Get a dose of her in jackboots and kilt
She's killer-diller when she's dressed to the hilt
She's the kind of a girl that makes the news of the world
Yes you could say she was attractively built
Yeah yeah yeah

--

She came in through the bathroom window
Protected by a silver spoon
But now she sucks her thumb and wanders
By the banks of her own lagoon

Didn't anybody tell her?
Didn't anybody see?
Sunday's on the phone to Monday,
Tuesday's on the phone to me

She said she'd always been a dancer
She worked at 15 clubs a day
And though she thought I knew the answer
Well I knew but I could not say.

And so I quit the police department
And got myself a steady job
And though she tried her best to help me
She could steal but she could not rob.

Didn't anybody tell her?
Didn't anybody see?
Sunday's on the phone to Monday,
Tuesday's on the phone to me
Oh yeah.

--

Once there was a way to get back homeward
Once there was a way to get back home
Sleep pretty darling do not cry
And I will sing a lullaby

Golden slumbers fill your eyes
Smiles awake you when you rise
Sleep pretty darling do not cry
And I will sing a lullaby

Once there was a way to get back homeward
Once there was a way to get back home
Sleep pretty darling do not cry
And I will sing a lullaby

--

Boy, you're gonna carry that weight
Carry that weight a long time
Boy, you're gonna carry that weight
Carry that weight a long time

I never give you my pillow
I only send you my invitations
And in the middle of the celebrations
I break down

Boy, you're gonna carry that weight
Carry that weight a long time
Boy, you're gonna carry that weight
Carry that weight a long time

--

Oh yeah, all right
Are you going to be in my dreams
Tonight?

Love You, Love You, (x15)

And in the end
The love you take
Is equal to the love you make.

Genius, the intellectuals of modern music
look out! 
I worked at a community radio station in the 80s
one day I played this whole side
I got yelled at because it was too top 40!
George, Paul and John trading guitar solos (in that order) three times just after Ringo's only recorded drum solo while with The Beatles.  George's solo is delicate and mostly single notes.  Paul's...super melodic and catchy. John's...dark, aggressive, and heavy.  Brilliant last moments on the last song on the last album.

Saw McCartney close down Candlestick Park in San  Francisco in 2014, 48 years after The Beatles last concert in that same venue. Besides it being by far Paul's best performance of the five times I saw him live (and the best Beatles show I ever saw, having seen all of them live, including John's last ever concert), what made it heavenly was that, in his third and fourth encores, he played most of Side 2 of Abbey Road (as Bill has done here!), and then played the last four or five songs The Beatles played in their final concert, at Candlestick those 48 years earlier. I Consider myself blessed to have witnessed that show in person.
 

I was at that show also! I got there early because I was an usher, and I'm so glad I did - the traffic for patrons was so bad that the show started an hour late. And still, some people only caught half of the show by the time they got there. 
Thank you RP for playing Sergeant Pepper right through. Wonderful Wonderful! As fresh as the day it was released. Best played right through from start to finish. Phenomenal!
Thanks for playing these unsplittable 16 minutes ! If I had only one 11, that would be this one.
Probably the greatest album ever..?

One of the best individual tracks ever
any one making music like this anymore? 

Just seems so much more from then, might be we only hear the things that have stood the test of time. Today music just seems so....so thin. 
 The only thing you done was "Yesterday"..............and THIS
I can't play this album and not listen to it in its entirety. Reminds me of being a little kid with my brothers & sister. I love the  memories.
My Abbey Road album has a scratch that makes this tune skip several times at 'oh that magic feeling'.   I've played it often enough that it now seems normal and catches me by surprise to hear it played without the repeats.  
I cannot passively listen to this. Lyrics, bass, drums, harmonies, riffs, piano.... all just magnificently flows in a springtime serene stream setting.

As ten as ten gets, beginning to end. This is what tens are all about.   

"The Suite" - one side of an incredible album. I don't give many 10s. This defines what a 10 should be.

Stupid comment.  I hate to break it to people but there are some individuals who do not like the Beatles.   I'm not one of them, but I get sick of this elitist attitude and childish berating against people who have different tastes than yours.  To each his or her own.   
The term "epic" is overused by the current generation. Used for the most mundane things.  To make it clear, very few things are truly epic in the truest sense of the word. THIS is fucking EPIC!
Its just that every album they did, was special. And on almost every song, they never held back, never phoned it in.  Every song was it's own effort.  No filler songs. 

They did all this in 10 years. And their last album, was just as creative as the first. 

  
Every time I listen to this I get totally lost in it. Amazing piece of music. 
To me only 7 - Quite Likeable  I Skip

I pointedly disagreed with freemusic's post.  This is still a 10, IMO.  ;-)

Amen.  I enjoy the Beatles very much, but it makes me laugh when I read the smug, asinine comments directed towards those people who just may not like the Beatles.  I know it's hard to imagine, but in this world of approximately 6 billion people, there just may be a few people who dislike them.  Deal with it.

Perhaps those that rated less than 10, just didn't want to rate it over 9.  It seems whenever I see my 10 rating, "Really? 10 seems high?"  Then, the rest of the album kicks off, and then I just remember.... "Yeah!!!  It's the whole album that's brilliant! -- And THAT's why it is a 10!"

For those that just don't get it, I think you just missed "music appreciation classes" in school, where we were taught how to recognize truly great music performances when you FIRST hear it.  This album was certainly that for me. 

After this album had been out for a while, various tracks had been or still were popular.  I borrowed someone's car around 1969?, and they just happened to have this 8-track plugged into a decent sound system.  I drove to my destination in 5-10 minutes.. but by then, I was hooked...  I had to listen to ALL of it...   He didn't get his car back for about 3 hours.  I think I played it over about three times, from start to finish.  What a difference the whole album makes, vs just a song or two.

Sure, we were around when it first came out and likely associated it with the times... But at least for me, the only memorable event I can remember connected to hearing it, was the aqua Gran Torino? that I borrowed...  Not the car, the trip, but the sound system and the 8-track that just happened to be sitting there--all insignificant details.  But the music?  I think that if I heard it for the first time today, and never heard that album or a single song from it before, or heard about the Beatles, I would be just as blown away when I first heard this album. 
This was great when it was first bottled, {#Drunk} with no aging required.

NICE!  Some albums should not be split up... when I hear just one song from Dark Side of the Moon, I am always disappointed that I didn't hear the whole album ( hint - hint BillG )  - I realize it may not fit in to the playlist easily but I for one would love it.  

ps  TRC et al. - what other albums do you feel should be played in their entirety?  A couple others come to mind, Tommy and Jesus Christ Superstar.

So to repeat my oft used saying, It Helps To Have Been There.
1969 you pedantic young naysayers...bloomin 1969
If you listen to this song, there's a lot going on it...good playing as well as nifty arrangements.  It's kind of complex...like a tapestry. 

 
this was on a few month ago, just as I started a long walk with my pup.  I'm not a Beatles fanatic, but I never had such bliss as an open field walk and this medley in my ears.  A 2018 highlight.
This album is my first biggest artistic emotion {#Music}

Well, e.g. the guitar solo maybe produced more perfect due to technology nowadays. But the music/composition itself? "Ageless" in my opinion.
The whole sequence of songs starting with "you never give me your money" until the last  one including "her majesty" (well you could also say the complete side 2 of the LP), not only until "The End" creates "goosebumps" and shivers are going own my back. Most people in germany probably only know "Come together" or "Here comes the sun", but this is it what makes it really special in my opinion.

If you had to choose, is this their greatest single song?

Or, as some would claim,is it:  "A Day in the Life"?

For me  9 - OUTSTANDING
These songs are brilliant like most Beatles songs,especially John Lennon and Paul McCartney songs and some George Harrison songs.
Goose bumps every time. 
Can you use your wildest imagination and think of a band in the last 20 years, that could even attempt to do something like this one song, this one album, etc?   
This automatically makes me stop whatever I'm doing, looking for a production deal or writing a mail, to listen and sing along. Sure fire way to stop me cold. It's almost impossible to do otherwise. A 9? Umm, that's too low. Silly songs, mostly, but genius nonetheless. Magnum opus. 
Fairly epic, approaches The Who in its scope
Once there was a way to get back home...

#tearsbeforebreakfast
Somehow the Beatles sound better on Radio Paradise! Just lovely, thanks so much :)
Still gives me goose bumps!
Incredible in the fact that these were unfinished songs they blended together to make one of Rocks highest moments.
Everyone always rates Sgt Peppers as the best album by the beatles, but this is the Best Album by any artist anytime

You must also remember his NYC-radio competitor from back then, Murray the K, from 1010 WINS - the self-proclaimed "fifth Beatle."

AND they changed so much more than just music.....
First and last love - musicwise! Even if it was before my time... Makes me weep each time! Cold shivers up and down my spine!
And they've carried that weight for 50 years! And counting.

Many people born in the 1920s and '30s thought popular music "all turned to garbage" after rock and roll came into prominence, so I guess it's all relative.

Dude on the right is Kevin, played Tuba as the 5th Beatle for a few weeks, before being told thanks, but they were going to forge ahead as a 4-piece. Never stopped drinking Guinness.
How many songs have a votes' histogram like this? 63% are 10s!

It's not a song. It's a suite. And it's an orchestral symphony to rock and roll. Of the first magnitude.  And a magnum opus. Check it out. 
So great. Although, they cut off the bit of 'Her Majesty' which is in the original recording.

Cordialement,
I so much more appreciated the Beatles rock/Hippie music over the pop period even though all their music is iconic.
So much whistling jubilation. 
So fine 
so fine  
Just like it was yesterday .... still the best of the best!
This is how to stop while you are on top. Extraordinary music from a band who had to implode before their time if the world was to avoid coming to an end.
The magic that was The Beatles was too strong to die with the band. Oddly enough, right around 1970 was when Monty Python and Pink Floyd started to get really good. And when Python started to lose it in 1973, Queen appeared. Just sayin'.
For some reason I had not realised how "Wings" this track was till just now.
