Tracks on the album include:
Maxwell's silver hammer
I want you (She's so heavy)
Here comes the sun
You never give me your money
Mean Mr Mustard
She came in through the bathroom window
Carry that weight
Her Majesty (a hidden track)
The record studio, Abbey Road Studios, where many of the tracks were recorded located at 3 Abbey Road, may have contributed to the naming of this album but the photo of the four Beatles crossing Abbey Road on the zebra crossing has become an iconic image always associated with the album.
Visitors to the area have their photo taken crossing the Abbey Road crossing. Hopefully local traffic has become accustomed to this activity. Last year when the Australian Over 70s Cricket Team visited Lord's Cricket Ground many members of the team had a go at crossing Abbey Road.
