In the summer, I was thinking about what Sgt. Pepper would have been like with Penny Lane and Strawberry Fields Forever . I couldn't decide which tracks to get rid of. Then I made it easier for myself- I got rid of most of the songs, and added All You Need Is Love , I Am The Walrus and Rain , because I thought they sounded right.

 

Here's the track listing of the new album:

Sgt. Pepper

WALHFMF

Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds

Rain

Getting Better

Fixing A Hole

*flip*

Penny Lane

All You Need Is Love

Strawberry Fields Forever

I Am The Walrus

Sgt. Pepper (reprise)

A Day In The Life

 

I think you'll agree that that is an amazing album. However, I have decided to get rid of Rain , and replace it with a song released in 1967, because I'm putting Rain on Revolver (no prizes for guessing which song is going...)

 

Here are the candidates:

Hello Goodbye - the obvious choice, the only remaining single

Within You, Without You- it would give George a track (I'm not going for Blue Jay Way )

Good Morning Good Morning - a fairly good track, it morphs into Reprise. I'm probably leaning towards it. I'd move a track to side 1 to accomodate it.

BFTBOMK- my favourite track that I removed from Sgt. Pepper . I'm not sure it fits, though.

Your Mother Should Know /Baby You're a Rich Man- I quite like these MMT tracks. However, I would have to buy them.

 

So, I have two questions:

a) What would go on your "1967" album?

b) What track should go on mine in place of "Rain "?

Thanks.

And I neeeeeeeeed her all the time

My vote is "Within You Without You ." 

Erm. I don't know, as I like Pepper as it is.

Well, if I was to edit it for my keeping, I think that "Rain " would stay, and "Within You Without You would go in the place of either "Penny Lane " or "Reprise." And I'd squeeze "Lovely Rita " in there. Maybe I'd replace "Penny Lane " with "Lovely Rita ," and replace "Reprise" with "Within You Without You ." But "Baby, You're a Rich Man" is pretty good, too.... Gaah! Maybe instead of "Fixing A Hole ?"

I don't know why I like that song, but I do.

I wouldn't touch "reprise", because the album barely holds up as a concept album anyway, so it needs all the mentions of SP's LHCB it can get. I also think it is a great intro for A Day In The Life .

Are you using "lame" as a catchall for posts that you don't like/include jokes you don't get? 

 

*The 9 validates my point*

No. I apologize Walrus but this is 910'd. 

And No
