Paul McCartney's compilation, Wingspan, was a two disc set featuring the Hits on the first disc, the most famous songs, and hit singles (Band On The Run, Silly Love Songs, Junior's Farm). The second disc, History featured lesser known B-sides and album tracks (Maybe I'm Amazed, Let Me Roll It, Venus And Mars/Rock Show)

This is an effort to compile a Beatles edition, with the most popular songs on disc one, and the lesser known, but just as good tracks on disc two. 

Ground rules: there must be from 40-50 total songs, with no more than 4 more tracks on one disc than another.

Here's Mine (in rough chronological order):
DISC ONE: HITS

1. Love Me Do

2. From Me To You

3. Please Please Me

4. She Loves You

5. I Want To Hold Your Hand

6. A Hard Day's Night

7. Can't Buy Me Love

8. I Feel Fine

9. Eight Days A Week

10. Help!

11. Ticket To Ride

12. Day Tripper

13. We Can Work It Out

14. Yellow Submarine

15. Paperback Writer

16. Lady Madonna

17. Hello Goodbye

18. Penny Lane

19. All You Need Is Love

20. Hey Jude

21. Revolution (the only B-Side on disc one)

22. Get Back

23. Let It Be

 

DISC TWO: HISTORY

1. I Saw Her Standing There

2. I Should Have Known Better

3. What You're Doing

4. The Night Before

5. You've Got To Hide Your Love Away

6. Yesterday

7.Norwegian Wood 

8. Nowhere Man

9. In My Life

10. Rain

11. Taxman

12. Eleanor Rigby

13. And Your Bird Can Sing

14. Tomorrow Never Knows (Wow, choosing only a few from Rubber Soul and Revolver was really tough)

15. Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds

16. She's Leaving Home

17. A Day In The Life

18. Strawberry Fields Forever

19. Dear Prudence

20. While My Guitar Gently Weeps

21. Helter Skelter

22. Hey Bulldog

23. Across The Universe

24. I've Got A Feeling

25. Come Together

26. Something

27. Here Comes The Sun

28. Because

Wow, I had to cut a lot of songs for that to be 50. Would have liked 40 to equal Wingspan, but I couldn't. So, what are yours?

Edit: I went one over 50, because I realized I forgot Strawberry Fields Forever, and I couldn't cut anything else.

Well - if we are being strict and trim - Dear Prudence my first choice, Because second choice - only as one needs to be trimmed.

There is nothing on your compilation from With The Beatles IveJustSeenAFaceo and considering the premise shouldn't every album have at least one representation? And Yesterday was a hit so it should be on disc one replacing Revolution which wasn't - which comes down to side one being a reduced 1.  Pirate that album which moves Something and Come Together over, giving more space for a copy of others - maybe all the bonus tracks would fit on. Personally the only track missing i'd really quibble over would be No Reply.

Its a cool album tho.

Well, I had All My Loving, but I got rid of it at the very end. And I had I'm A Loser, which is much in the same place as No Reply, but again, everything else added up.
