* In a way, how the band itself broke up. Four lads who were close friends who just happened to form the greatest rock band the world ever seen, whose musical style was based on ''harmony'', where every performance and singing voice complemented each other... and then they stopped being like that. The breakup of the Beatles was viewed as Earth-shattering news when it happened. There was a reason why people kept hoping the band would get back together during the Seventies -- Lorne Michaels' offer on SaturdayNightLive for the band to reunite for $5000.00 mocked then-ongoing proposals by the networks (and if Paul and John were serious about going down to the studio that very night, it might have ''worked'') -- all because the fans wanted to see them together one more time.

** This might be [[EpilepticTrees looking too deep into it]], but the lyric "no one was saved" adds an extra layer of tragedy to the story, suggesting that Eleanor Rigby's death could have been preventable if only there was someone who cared about her.

* We know it's coming, and we will never be ready for it. The day will come that Paul or Ringo will pass on, and we will all fall to tears knowing only one survives. Then, even worse, the day will come when the last Beatle passes on, and the world will wail knowing they are gone.

** Also doubles as a slightly heartwarming moment, as Paul wrote it for Julian Lennon after John and his first wife divorced and John was being a bit of an absent dad.

* "Hey, Jude" from ''Music/MagicalMysteryTour'' -- sad melody, and there are times when the lyrics don't quite make it better.

** There's something also oddly tearjerking about Lennon's mistake, where he sings "feeling two foot small" instead of "tall". Mostly because "small" has more impact than what the line was supposed to be.

* "No Reply" from Beatles For Sale can be particularly moving piece. The melodramatic chords and the audible heartbreak in John's voice can do it for some people.
