Might have fitted better on the white album than Abbey Road.
Wouldn't have made the cut on that if they had slimmed it to a single album though.

Not the greatest song ever, but works with the album. It's little songs like this that make The Beatles what they are.

It's a goofy little track that gets an ok rating just because it's goofy.

I just don’t like this track at all and always skip past it. Why oh why did they include it ? The general band consensus was it wasn’t good yet they still went with it. Amazing to think a song as crappie as this is included yet the album remains a slam dunk masterpiece.

The only unnecessary song on an otherwise perfect album

A little juvenile sounding. The prechorus is really the best part of this and I think the synths probably sounded pretty sweet back in the day. For me this is too yellow-submariney to be a song on what this site considers to be among the greatest albums of all time.

Goofy as hell, "Granny Music" as Lennon called it :P But quirky and funny in it's own way!

Another one of Paul's songs that seems to divide opinion. Like Ob-la-di-ob-la-da, it's one of those tracks that seems to be hated a lot more than loved. It's certainly not one of McCartney's best, but is it all that bad? Well, it's the weakest track on the album as far as i'm concerned, and although it's not awful, it's not great. I don't mind it as part of the Abbey road experience, but I certainly wouldn't choose to listen to it on it's own. All in all, I guess it's okay, silly but fun, well, at least up to a point anyway.
