What? A Beatles and Elvis iPod? I have one of those.

Yes, It's one of those new Nano's. Have the Stereo & Mono box sets on plus some off the 1980 rarities. Then all the Elvis songs, I have plenty of his CD's & just a few live CD"s. I can have great fun doing compilations of all that lot, all their No 1's etc...

We would have fun spending the afternoon together. I have a room in my house that is slowly being taken over by Elvis and The Beatles.

Me too! Those Stereo & Mono vinyl box sets take up a fair bit of room. Then there's the capitol Vol's 1& 2, E.P & Japan box, Stereo & Mono CD boxes. That's before all the Elvis stuff. It all gives me pleasure thinking up different play lists now that I'm retired.

Do I make compilations?

Yesahdn_george_08

The Beatles' Material is so good that it's hard not to make compilations.  Just the other night I made a playlist called 'Beatlemania' which compiles the some of the early A-side singles.  Just tonight I found an old cd-r with nothing on it, so I decided to put a playlist of all 22 songs that George contributed + Not Guilty .  I was gonna put some other demos from Anthology on it, but I ran out of room.  I even made my own album cover for it.

The new Apple Music streaming thingy has quite a lot of Beatles playlists which are cool (eg Best Psychedelic Songs, Best R&B songs, Beatles for a Rainy Day etc.)

I don't actually have Apple Music so I just find the playlists I like and replicate them with my own collection.

As soon as The Beatles were available streaming on Spotify, I was ON a playlist. I love them. I haven't made any really specialized ones just yet. The one I did make, I just went through and pulled the songs I gravitated toward the most on each album.apple01

Interesting playlist @Bongo.

Only a couple of things I dislike about it. Rather than make it one disc to supplement the Red and one to supplement the Blue, there's a '67 track on the first disc. And the fact that the chronology is all over the place, which means it doesn't offer the same view of their development as the Red and Blue do.

Good job though.

I would have said that, but I did make a sleepy-time playlist for listening in bed... but it's not just Beatles, it's Beatles/George/Pink Floyd, and I've yet to add some songs *coughMarwaBluescough* to it.

Very very very rarely. I did one for Christmas (various artists) weeding out all the rubbish Christmas tracks but that's been it for a good while.

I suppose playlists would be todays compilations considering how technology has advanced replacing cassettes completely and reducing the requirement of cd's, many cars nowadays can even play music files on usb flashdrives. Why burn a cd when its quicker to compile numerous playlists on an iPod or smartphone?

Unless in the context of this thread compilation is the same as a playlist.

Playlists are so much easier than doing cassette mixtapes back in the day and then CDs. It's become necessary to make informed comparisons with bootlegs, anthologies and masters for me, sometimes something will jump out at me if I'm hearing a version or two of the same song together, but it's not for casual listening. Those are different playlists, and I have a bunch of those. Then there are the playlists I practice bass to, they're different again. a-hard-days-night-george-9

I make playlists but I never include Beatles songs. I either listen to them on shuffle or I listen to their albums. I wouldn't be able to do a Beatles compilation and if I tried I would end up with too many songs on it. I have made John, Paul, and George compilations though, and I don't need to for Ringo bc Photograph is already so perfect.

I made a Spotify playlist with all the tracks in the order used in Revolution In The Head to listen to while reading the book - had to add in Anthology tracks and 'Child Of Nature ' as local files.  (Tried using a bootleg fake for 'Carnival Of Light ' but it was just so bad I took it out.  It just uses samples from Revolution 9 - "The Twist, Elderado" etc - not even trying!)

I have 30 or so playlists built from just The Beatles music for different subjects.  I use iTunes and I sync up what I want to be on my iPod that day of week.  I like the idea about the Rubber Soul - (deluxe edition) idea, I will have to build some of those!

I have only made a couple. I made a compilation of songs by George as a Beatle which was just his original compositions in chronological order and I only included songs from albums/singles, none of the Anthology tracks. I did it because I had just read I Me Mine book and thought a playlist of his songs would make an interesting listen and it was relatively short as well.

I also made a Ringo one but I cheated and included Anthology tracks, covers, and songs written by Lennon/McCartney as he doesn't have many Beatle compositions. I did that to get excited for seeing him live so I listened to that compilation plus his solo greatest hits.

I made a super three volume compilation of Beatles songs. Which included four tracks of each album plus single tracks and it was in chronological order. I did it for someone who I was trying to introduce to the Beatles but the playlist became an arduous task and I soon realised that the person had no real interest in listening to the Beatles so I never bothered giving it to them and kept it for myself. Unfortunately I lost this playlist on Itunes but I might try and do it again as it was a really good playlist and I would like to share it with you guys. 

And in the end the lunch you take is equal to the lunch you bake.

I've made quite a few playlists, Beatles and non-Beatles.

If you're reading this, you are looking for something to do.

I like making Beatles albums out of early solo music. I have one for 70, 71, and 73.
