Hypothetical Beatles album

I just made a CD of Beatles solo songs from the 1970's , that I think would have made a great official Beatles album—if they had never split up.

I would love to hear feedback, and what would your hypothetical album be?

Here is the song list:

  1. Instant Karma
  2. Another Day
  3. What is Life
  4. Photograph
  5. Jet
  6. You're Sixteen (You're Beautiful and you're Mine)
  7. Imagine
  8. My Sweet Lord
  9. Maybe I'm Amazed
  10. Working Class Hero
  11. Jealous Guy
  12. Let Me Roll It
  13. It Don't Come Easy
  14. Uncle Albert / Admiral Halsey
  15. Dark Horse
  16. Helen Wheels
  17. Every Night
  18. Isn't It A Pity
  19. God
  20. Junk

It's a little too many songs for a standard LP, but someone wrote some kind of story about this, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/T…..lfth_Album. Pretty interesting. 

Oh, and God would have to some lyrical alterations, considering if the Beatles still existed he would probably still believe in them.

Even though this type of thread has popped up a zillion times here, I'm happy to see an enthusiastic new member.

Welcome Russell!

Great CD Russell, I do have to agree with IveJustSeenAFaceo's comments on it being a little too long though.  The alterations that I would make is dropping 'Working Class Hero', 'Dark Horse', 'Jet' & 'Helen Wheels', not because they're not good songs but because they do seem a little out of place amongst the others to me.  One glaring omission for me is the excellent 'I'm The Greatest' from the 'Ringo' album which is the closest thing, other than 'Free As A Bird' & 'Real Love' of course, to a Beatles reunion that we ever got.  Klaus Voorman, who's very well entrenched in BeatleLore, took Paul's place but everyone else is present and I think that it would be a great opener to the disc.  I'd also switch John's 'God' to the closing slot for a good hard dose of reality after listening to the album, it seems fitting to me in a weird sorta way and I think that John himself would also approve.  It also seems perhaps a little unfair that Paul's 'Let Me Roll It' made the cut without including the original song that inspired his satirical response to John mocking him, which of course is Lennon's 'How Do You Sleep?' (George also plays Side Guitar on it),  perhaps these two great tracks could preceed 'Isn't It A Pity' before 'God' closes the curtains, what do you think?…:-)

I think we all have playlists we've compiled on our iPods ……………Mine's a John V Paul ……….Alternating tracks in a similar vein, a screaming rocker from John v one from Paul……..'Poppy' John v 'Poppy' Paul…….etc.


I like yours…….I'll nick it.

That looks like a pretty great hypothetical double LP indeed! Although I personally would switch "You're Sixteen" for "Early 1970", and probably ditch "Every Night" in favour of "Cold Turkey" just to even out the John-Paul imbalance.

I like the notion of having both "God" and "My Sweet Lord" on the same album!

I like black music, disco music. I like the disco music that's out now - John Lennon, 1975
