the anatomy of a post-help! hit (abbey road)

Here's the last song categorization! The next post will provide the progression of categorizations (i.e. the progression of number of ballads across albums, number of psychedelic rock tracks, etc.).

But right now, let's see what Abbey Road has for us. I'll be treating each portion of the B-side medley as a separate song, even though they're tracked so as to have no break between them.

Ballads (5)
Here Comes the Sun
Golden Slumbers
Sun King

Novelty/Parody Songs (6)
Maxwell's Silver Hammer
Octopus's Garden
Mean Mr. Mustard
Polythene Pam
She Came in through the Bathroom Window
Her Majesty

Psychedelic Rock (1)
Come Together

Straight Rock (5)
Oh! Darling
I Want You (She's So Heavy)
You Never Give Me Your Money
Carry That Weight
The End

Rockabilly-style rock (0)

So there you have it! Let me know what you think.
