One of the few good ideas Capitol had during The Beatles' years was releasing Yesterday as a single, but that was probably only because they had mangled the British 'Help!' album when putting together the U.S. version.

What other LP tracks do you think would have made great A-side singles?

The first one that comes into my head is 'A Day In The Life'. A classic, I think it deserves to be a single.

''We're just knocked out. We heard about the sell out. You gotta get an album out, you owe it to the people. We're so happy we can hardly count.''

There may be a thread on this already, but if not, it's a good one:

(Note: some songs were released as singles in one part of the world but not another)
All My Loving

And I Love Her

[Nowhere Man]

Taxman

While My Guitar ….

If I Fell

Drive My Car

Back In The USSR

Birthday

Michelle

In My Life

With A Little Help

Across The Universe (actually, no; great song, but would not have been a great single)

Here There And Everywhere

 

I don't think A Day In The Life would have been successful as a single.

"Into the Sky with Diamonds" (the Beatles and the Race to the Moon – a history)

Agree with ITSWD that ADITL wouldnt have been and there is a thread which is very similar: 'What album songs or B-sides would have been hits if released as a single?'

He would know – after all, he started that thread last year!

I am locking this thread in favor of the one we already have. It is still a great topic, Wildcat.apple01

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.
