- Crowning Moment of Heartwarming: The last lyric of their last song together.
And In The End
The Love You Take
Is Equal To The Love
- With the four of them crooning an "Ahhh-Ah" as the song closes with a harmonious yet bittersweet farewell.
- Ensemble Dark Horse: Sometimes cited as their best album over Sgt. Pepper. Maybe as not as much an example as Revolver or The Beatles since it's their best selling album.
- Harsher in Hindsight: Lennon's repeated muttering of "Shoot me" in "Come Together". In context he is referring to the heroine addiction he struggled with at the time, but it is hard not feeling somewhat uncomfortable it hearing when thinking about he would eventually die.
- Tear Jerker: "You Never Give Me Your Money" and the whole medley generally. If it's impossible not to hear it as the band saying goodbye, that's because it's the band saying goodbye.
- Vindicated by History: Received a mixed critical reception on release, but became their best selling album and is now regarded as one of their finest works.
