The White Album as John Solo Album

There's been a lot of talk of the White Album as a single album - but recently looking at John's output on this record - look at what an amazing solo album this would make. Admittedly you've got Revolution #9, but at the same time we have to allow an artist their creative expression. I also included Good Night as a John song assuming he sang it (I think I read that Ringo or Paul said John's version singing it was beautiful - I will take that at its word).

I am not disparaging any of the other tunes on the White Album - just putting these in on their own.

I have taken the songs in exact order - even though I would venture to say that some resequencing would give an even stronger album.

I also didn't time the length of it to see where it falls time wise. Feel to comment and even re-order. I didn't try this with Paul's songs - leaving that to someone else to try. I'm actually going to burn this as a playlist and see how it feels. Or if someone comes up with a better order.

Either way to me - this is a pretty outstanding record:

Dear Prudence

Glass Onion

The Continuing Story Of Bungalow Bill

Happiness Is A Warm Gun

I'm So Tired

Julia

Yer Blues

Everybody's Got Something To Hide Except Me And My Monkey

Sexy Sadie

Revolution 1

Cry Baby Cry

Revolution 9

Good Night

Shove on What's The New Mary Jane as the b-side of Revolution 9 and you have a single to go to with the album.

Unfortunately the Paul solo album doesn't end that well!

Back In The USSR
Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da
Wild Honey Pie
Martha My Dear
Blackbird
Rocky Raccoon
Why Don't We Do It In The Road??
I Will
Birthday
Mother Nature's Son
Helter Skelter
Honey Pie

Yeah that might need some major sequencing I think. :P

I'd put Helter Skelter last. It would be the "gorging on music" experience I get with Band on the Run ending with Nineteen Hundred and Eighty Five. I feel the need to go lie down and recuperate after listening to that ending.

Yes, Helter Skelter is probably best at the end. The surprise for me is what a comparatively weak album this is for Paul. Admittedly he'd written two monster singles that year, but there's at least 4 of those songs I'm happy never to hear.

That's a good point…….though there's only wild Honey Pie that should have stayed in a draw somewhere. All the others have a certain charm.
