The Rock Archetype Album
The Beatles showed their versatility in this album more than in any other. I love this album because there is literally a song for whatever mood you’re in - if you’re sad, listen to Yer Blues, I’m So Tired, Julia, or Long, Long, Long. If you’re feeling energetic, listen to Helter Skelter, Everybody’s Got Something to Hide Except for Me and My Monkey, Birthday, Savoy Truffle, or Back in the U.S.S.R. There is literally something for everybody in the album, and it is also worth noting the breakout of George Harrison as a songwriter in “While My Guitar Gently Weeps”, which also happens to be the best song on the album. The closing track is also a contender for the most beautiful song they’ve made, with Ringo’s great vocals. After going through this crazy roller coaster of an album, Good Night seems like a fitting thing to hear after it’s all over.
