I would agree with you on that one.
I've been saying this for years.
I don't dislike "Money" or anything, but it really doesn't seem to fit on the LP. Back in my vinyl days, I routinely just skipped it, since it kicked off side two.

You're both wrong. If there's a clunker on Help!
(and that's a big if, IMO), it's Harrison's "You Like Me Too Much". The real crime of that album is burying "I've Just Seen A Face" near the end of side two. Capitol yanking it and then kicking off Rubber Soul
with it was the one-and-only such decision they made which I applaud.
The stand-out clunker-of-all-time for me is "Moby Dick" from Led Zeppelin II
. If that track didn't exist, Zeppelin would've had a perfect record of nothing but great tracks on their first 5 LPs (that's right, suckers, "The Crunge" is awesome.) Great riff, but a drum solo is still a drum solo...
