    This song is... disturbing. I love Paul singing and laughing at 1:20

    Creepy song in a good way, reminds me of Pink Floyd's Careful With That Axe Eugene.

    Cannibal Corpse, 1993, listening to this song: "Damn, this is so brutal, we should totally write a song with this kind of lyrics" But yeah: A death-metal band should cover this. [7]

    Basically Maxwell kills everybody. [7] A very cheery song for someone who beats people to death with a hammer [3]

    Good song... but the lyrics are really dark. I'm sure they did that on purpose!

    Fantastic. No idea why people rag on MSH.

    Worst track off Abbey Road. Possibly the worst Beatles song too. At least in Wild Honey Pie and Revolution 9 there was the excuse of "experimentation." This song is just weak overall. Still better than half the shit being played these days, though.

    @jimgravy845: That's because John Lennon was mooning him at that point.
