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.
