Take out all Avant garde and crazy parodies and the White Album becomes my version

Why does everyone hate on Obla-Di-Obla-Da? Was it because of Johns' "granny music" remark? Anyways my favourites are Birthday,Happiness Is A Warm Gun, While My Guitar Gently Weeps,Blackbird, Back In The USSR.a-hard-days-night-paul-8

It's hard to say my favorites because I'm right now in a White Album phase.. I'm listening to it a lot. Even Piggies which is not one of my favorites.

I love this album because you can put it in at any time and listen to a few tracks that you really love without really listening to the entire album. Right now, I'm really digging I Will, I guess I've finally gotten over the "cuteness" of it and can really enjoy it. Julia is another one that I like a lot right now but I've been into a lot of John's "sad songs" recently and Savoy Truffle would be another. I like how silly George sounds when he sings "but you'll have to have them all pulled out after the Savoy Truffle."

I think that Dear Prudence is probably the best song on the album though. Great drums.a-hard-days-night-paul-1a-hard-days-night-ringo-6

I could have sworn I put that in... But you're right, ahaha. That would be between Martha My Dear and Yer Blues

I don't think I can put all the songs in order for me. But I would have to say my favorite is either While My Guitar Gently Weeps or Good Night.

In few words, all White Album songs are my favourite.

I'd like to say "thank you" on behalf of the group and ourselves and I hope we passed the audition. John Lennon

Of course, everyone puts Revolution 9 last on their lists...

I like everything on the White Album except The Continuing Story Of Bungalow Bill. That song is super annoying! I don't understand why people like it.

...unless they don't!  "Rev #9" would totally make my single-disc White Album.

Revolution 9 is not that great to listen to, but I feel that the White Album would be incomplete or anti-climactic without it. and I think I've listened to it more times than say Mother Nature's Son or I Will. My favourite tracks vary, but usually all of the george songs, plus Martha My Dear, Dear Prudence and Glass Onion, Cry Baby Cry, Helter Skelter, Revolution 1 sometimes.

It's a fantastic album that I truly enjoy. For the longest time it was my favorite Fab LP. Listing the tracks in order of my preference...

1) While My Guitar Gently Weeps

2) Yer Blues

3) Mother Nature's Son

4) everything in between

5) Revolution 9 and Good Night

I'm not a big fan of the last 2, but never skip over them.

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

OK, then I choose, in no particular order:

Yer Blues

I'm so Tired

Happiness Is A Warm Gun

Revolution 9

Dear Prudence

 

I don't think I'm surprising anyone with a list of pure Johnnie's, right?
