Abbey Road Medley

I've just been wondering... do you think this will all be one epic song when it comes? I sure hope it is, as it would be convenient and awesome, and probably save us some money. So yeah, vote on what you think.

    It's already been openly stated that it can be played all the way through so I think the point is pretty much moot.

    It has? Where was it stated? And, will they be labeled as one? I really hope they are...

    It was stated in some interview, I don't have it handy. And whether or not they're labeled as one wasn't mentioned.

    An interview in Wired confirmed it will be played as one track. Here's the link.

    Imagine that you failed the song "In the end". OH BOY.

    It's surprising to me though that they would make ALL of it one continuous track, because it's really not. You Never Give Me Your Money is pretty much a song on its own, but I guess I can understand how the end of that flows in to Sun King. But Sun King/Mean Mr. Mustard/Polythene Pam/She Came in Through the Bathroom Window is definitely a separate medley from Golden Slumbers/Carry That Weight/The End. I don't think that entire thing should be strung together.

    You know what I think? They're gonna give us an option on how we want to play it, one way or another. I agree with the poster above me, though. It's ALL amazing but when you break it down, what's considered "the medley" is really in three distinct parts... four if you consider "Her Majesty."

    It's over 16 minutes, gotta have a song or section option.

    I'd love if the Abbey Road Medley was actually Track 9 - Track 16

    I would agree that it has to be divided in some way. They're not going to force people to play the entire thing or none of it.

    I really am hoping that they decide to make Golden Slumbers to The End one medley, make Her Majesty separate (at best, if not included at all...not too fond of it), possibly You Never Give Me Your Money a medley with Here Comes the Sun King, probably go from "Mr. Mustard" to "Bathroom Window"...and I'm not sure about Because.

    But mostly, I want Golden Slumbers and connect with The End, that is all. Frankly, I don't see the B-side as one medley, but several. I don't think The "Mr. Mustard" medley is any more connected with the "Golden Slumbers" medley than Come Together is a medley with Something.

    That is, of course, just what I've found...and what I'm hoping for. I really don't want to play some 16-minutes of songs just to get to the final three, my favorites.

    I'd love it if it was one track if it meant saving some money, but I know there will be times when I don't want to play some of the songs in the medley...and by some I mean "Sun King".
