...."Abbey Road" - a true miracle of a record given the state of the band around that time.
Absolutely. After the messy and uncomfortable "Get Back" sessions that ground to a halt in early '69 the band was to all intents and purposes a lost cause - yet they got together one last time in the studio and created Abbey Road. A true achievement.

...."I Want To Hold Your Hand" - its simplicity, innocence, optimism and sheer energy always wins me over.
Not a song I've ever really liked that much (mainly because of the twee lyrics), but after hearing Al Green's soulful, funky cover version I realized just how great the chord sequences are.
