ABBEY ROAD


Another classic Beatles album where there are a lot of clues. The cover, the back cover, and the lyrics.


FRONT COVER CLUES

In the procession across the street, John represents the Preacher (Some say God), Ringo represents a Pall Bearer (Some say undertaker), Paul is the Deceased, and George is the Grave Digger (in workmans clothes).
Paul's eyes are closed and he is in his barefeet, both representative of a corpse. Paul is out of step with the other Beatles - His right foot is forward, not his left like the others.
Paul is smoking with his right hand... and he is a lefty.
The VW bug that is parked on the left side of the street has a liscense plate that says '28IF'.
Paul would have been 28 when this album was released, if he would have lived.
The license plate also says 'LMW' which stands for 'Linda McCartney Weeps.'
An ambulance or a morgue wagon is parked on the right side of the street.
The car in the background appears to be headed directly at Paul.

BACK COVER CLUES

If you connect the dots they form a 3 - the three remaining Beatles.
There is a crack in the letters that spell Beatles.
If you turn the album sideways you can see a white skull in the upper left corner.
The woman that you see on the right edge is Rita, the meter maid.

Lyrics

Come Together

He say "One and one and one is three"
Got to be good-looking 'cause he's so hard to see
Come together right now over me

editor's note: "One and one and one is three" remaining original Beatles after Paul died.
Paul was also referred to as the good looking one, but now that he is dead, he is so hard
to see. The Beatles are coming together over Paul's grave.

She Came in Through the Bathroom Window

And so I quit the police department
And got myself a steady job


editor's note: William Campbell used to be a policeman, but he got a steady job in the Beatles after Paul's death
