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.

Moving along in our God given ways, safety is sat by the fire/Sanctuary from these feverish smiles, left with a mark on the door.

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]


While My Guitar ....

If I Fell

Drive My Car

Back In The USSR



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.

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
