The Abbey Road medley is the musical equivalent of goulash. It’s made with a little bit of everything, including leftover tracks from the White Album and Let It Be sessions, most of which were written by Paul McCartney. It’s also notable because “The End” contains Ringo Starr’s only drum solo as a Beatle. Meaning, because Abbey Road was recorded after Let It Be, Ringo had to wait until the penultimate Beatles song to show off his skills…on a song called “The End.”
And now that someone has removed all those pesky instruments from the medley, leaving only Paul and John’s vocals, it’s as if Ringo’s greatest accomplishment never happened. He is the Charlie Brown of people.
