With this album, each of the four band members began to showcase the range and depth of his individual songwriting talents and styles that would be carried over to their eventual solo careers. John Lennon displays stark emotional candour ("Julia"), pleads for mercy and death ("Yer Blues"), crafts a devastatingly sardonic parody of popular music ("Happiness is a Warm Gun"), has flashes of manic insanity ("Everybody's Got Something to Hide Except Me and My Monkey"), excoriates famous gurus ("Sexy Sadie"), articulates his political views ("Revolution 1"), and collaborates with Yoko Ono ("Revolution 9").

While Lennon's songs differed lyrically, Paul McCartney's differed musically. McCartney's songs for the album include pop ballads ("I Will"), proto-heavy metal ("Helter Skelter"), piano pop ("Martha My Dear"), surfer rock pastiche ("Back In The U.S.S.R.") and music hall style songs ("Honey Pie").

George Harrison demonstrated his usual Indian mantra ("Long, Long, Long"), a religious cry for help ("While My Guitar Gently Weeps"), a funky goof off ("Savoy Truffle"), and social commentary ("Piggies"). Even Ringo Starr was given leave to include a song composed entirely by himself, "Don't Pass Me By" (which he had been working on since 1964).'

The Beatles - Blackbird
live 1975
Such a simple song. Such simple lyrics. But it holds a knockout punchas heavy as any of his other tunes. Folks, this is a frickin' masterpiece.
