I still haven't figured out what order the Beatles albums were released in, so I'm frequently wrong about whether one of their songs is "newer" or "older".

Just know that despite Let it Be being the last album released, Abbey Road was the last album recorded.

In 1977 Fleetwood Mac's Rumours came out, selling more than 40 million copies. On it were pop songs like "Dreams", which we've all heard 1000 times:
They've written better stuff, though, including the blues-oriented "The Chain": another example of a rock band's earlier stuff being better than the newer.
Too bad they had to sell out and go soft, huh.

However, "The Chain" and "Dreams" are on the same album.


John McVie's bass riff in The Chain was the first thing I learned to play on bass guitar.
