I have a 'Best of the Beatles' (Alan Partridge reference) Spotify playlist with 109 songs.

I've got one (on my computer though) with 121 songs (5 are non-canon (Anthology, solo)) 

I find it useful for car journeys mainly since I have it downloaded for offline use. I have all of the Beatles studio albums on CD in my car though as well. 

The playlisted started out with about 73 songs but i've been adding to it gradually. Will probably reach closer to 121 some daya-hard-days-night-george-9

This time last year (ok, maybe 14 months ago) my playlist had just over 40 songs on it. To think that in the last year or so, I've discovered and loved almost 80 of their songs...beatlemaniacs_02_gif

I tried making a "Beatles Best Of" but I quickly realized I would just add every song to the compilation.

A single playlist is impossible.

I do make "theme" playlists - e.g. psychedelic Beatles, early Beatles, George tunes, etc...

I have one playlist with all Beatles/solo/Wings/Fireman music I have. I also have one of all Paul's post-Beatles music (I don't do that with the other's solo work because their music is under one name). I don't do greatest hits, though, at least not with them.

I love creating theme playlists just like Pablo Ramon because one gets a completely new point of view if one listens to music while paying attention to a certain aspect and is creative afterwards. However, I rarely do this because it would take me hours to thoroughly think through every possibility of ordering them.

I'd never make a 'Best Of Beatles' list though because except for exactly five songs every single canon song would make it on the list and several non-canon songs too.paul-mccartney-facepalm_gif

Not once does the diversity seem forced -- the genius of the record is how the vaudevillian "When I'm 64" seems like a logical extension of "Within You Without You" and how it provides a gateway to the chiming guitars of "Lovely Rita. - Stephen T. Erlewine on Sgt Pepper's

The trick to making a best of album is to focus more so on what's popular and not on what you think is their best.

Here's an idea for The Beatles Greatest Hits:

The thing is, Yesterday is popular, but it's both utter *%$#, and musically very simple, so it's not really their best song.

I'd just do my favourite x songs, x being number of songs I need for the playlist. And I can easily decide that thanks to my spreadsheet.

Yesterday may suck but it's a very popular song so it has to be on there, i feel the same way with Van Halen and Jump or Queen and You're My Best Friend, the song may be absolute bollocks but it's too popular to not have on there. Also, the main reason i don't like Yesterday is because it's overplayed and i feel the strings are unnecessary, I think it should've been just vocals and acoustic guitar, like Julia .

Well, if I was to make a compilation, I would exclude Yesterday , because there's nothing stopping me... Just sayin'.

I don't go out of my way to listen to Yesterday but I don't think it is a bad song. I think it is a very well written song and it is a very important song for Paul McCartney /The Beatles.

If I was making a playlist of important Beatles songs I would include it because of how notorious it is.  

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

I added it to my 'Best of the Beatles' playlist mainly for this reason. I still really enjoy the song though of course, it just gets a bit tiring. 

I personally thing the strings work really well on Yesterday , they wouldn't work at all on Julia

But why would you do that if you're only making the album for your own enjoyment?

I'd want to make a compilation of songs with a similar theme or style.

Musically simple?!? Yesterday is one of the best tunes ever in popular music. Its always in motion, never dull for a moment.

Let's put it this way: Let's say I'd just lived my entire life under a rock, then I came out and listened to the Beatles's canon without knowing which tracks are popular, I would have crinkled up my nose and said 'next!' to Yesterday (and Something )

Though I understand I'll always be an outlier here...

^^^ Heck, we're all outliers here in some way or another.

I've never made a compilation before, but I have been thinking about it. Maybe I'll try it for something fun to do during summer vacation.

To be honest the Love version of Yersterday is my favourite. I like that it starts with Blackbird and then leads into Yesterday but I wouldn't include that on a best of the Beatles compilation.

I actually like the strings as well and it is fitting with the music and the lyrics of the song.
