1967 as a single disk?

In the summer, I was thinking about what Sgt. Pepper would have been like with Penny Lane and Strawberry Fields Forever. I couldn't decide which tracks to get rid of. Then I made it easier for myself- I got rid of most of the songs, and added All You Need Is Love, I Am The Walrus and Rain, because I thought they sounded right.

 

Here's the track listing of the new album:

Sgt. Pepper

WALHFMF

Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds

Rain

Getting Better

Fixing A Hole

*flip*

Penny Lane

All You Need Is Love

Strawberry Fields Forever

I Am The Walrus

Sgt. Pepper (reprise)

A Day In The Life

 

I think you'll agree that that is an amazing album. However, I have decided to get rid of Rain, and replace it with a song released in 1967, because I'm putting Rain on Revolver (no prizes for guessing which song is going...)

 

Here are the candidates:

Hello Goodbye- the obvious choice, the only remaining single

Within You, Without You- it would give George a track (I'm not going for Blue Jay Way)

Good Morning Good Morning- a fairly good track, it morphs into Reprise. I'm probably leaning towards it. I'd move a track to side 1 to accomodate it.

BFTBOMK- my favourite track that I removed from Sgt. Pepper. I'm not sure it fits, though.

Your Mother Should Know/Baby You're a Rich Man- I quite like these MMT tracks. However, I would have to buy them.

 

So, I have two questions:

a) What would go on your "1967" album?

b) What track should go on mine in place of "Rain"?

Thanks.

First Cool Thread. I need time to do the first part, but add Your Mother Should Know. You took out Quite a bit a Paul.

My vote is "Within You Without You." 

Erm. I don't know, as I like Pepper as it is. 

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.

Well, if I was to edit it for my keeping, I think that "Rain" would stay, and "Within You Without You would go in the place of either "Penny Lane" or "Reprise." And I'd squeeze "Lovely Rita" in there. Maybe I'd replace "Penny Lane" with "Lovely Rita," and replace "Reprise" with "Within You Without You." But "Baby, You're a Rich Man" is pretty good, too.... Gaah! Maybe instead of "Fixing A Hole?"

I don't know why I like that song, but I do.

I wouldn't touch "reprise", because the album barely holds up as a concept album anyway, so it needs all the mentions of SP's LHCB it can get. I also think it is a great intro for A Day In The Life.

Good point....

Are you using "lame" as a catchall for posts that you don't like/include jokes you don't get? 

 

*The 9 validates my point*

No. I apologize Walrus but this is 910'd. 

And No

 

*My 17 trumps your 9*
