Let me take you down 'cause I'm going to...Strawberry Fields.
COULD YOU MAKE ONE???!!!???
It has been already made, I'll upload it and put it over here so you and everyone can hear it; I'm actually making my version of The White Album; I'm currently mixing I'm So Tired with Paul more audible vocals from the mono version and some (partially) unused overdubs for the same song.
Finally, After struggling with the album, and had to remix around 40% of the album again because of sound and mixing errors, here's the Sour Milk Sea Outfake, stereo remixed & remastered by myself.

One and one don't make two
One and one make one.
1. Dear Prudence (clean intro)
2. Ob-la-di Ob-la-da
3. Sexy Sadie
4. I'm So Tired
5. Long Long Long
1. Don't Pass Me By
2. Cry Baby Cry/Can You Take Me Back
3. I Will
4. Why Don't we Do It In The Road
5. Yer Blues
(Total Running time: 44 mins)
No idea what to do with the remaining tracks. I suppose add them in with the 4 new yellow submarine tracks and put another album together. But not Revolution 9, it wouldnt fit.

That's tough. I like more than just 14 of the White Album's songs. But, I'll give it a try.
1: Back In The U.S.S.R
3: Glass Onion
4: Obla Di Obla Da
9: Don't Pass Me By
10: I Will
12: Helter Skelter
13: Honey Pie
I've been wondering about how that album as a single album for a while now. I've been playing around in iTunes trying to find a good tracklist. I will keep with the rules of the original post (14 songs...2 from George and 1 from Ringo) and this is what I came up with!
Obla Di Obla Da
Everybody's Got Something Hide Except Me and My Monkey
Don't Pass Me By
The 2nd side was harder than the first! I had to cut some of my favorites but I think this provides for a solid album! It flows very well. I just realized I have the 2 animal names and Sadie and Julia together! I like Ringo's song being last cause it's kind of saying 'Hey guys I wrote a song, don't pass me by!'
Try to realize it's all within yourself, no one else can make you change....
Sorry there are more than 14 tracks here, but this would be my ideal "White Album":
3- Glass Onion
9- Don't Pass Me By
10- I Will
12- Mother Nature's Son
13- Helter Skelter
14- Long, Long, Long
15- Revolution 1
16- Honey Pie
17- Savoy Truffle
18- Good Night.
Interesting lists, people!
This took some thought, but I believe this would've made a respectable album. It almost makes you wonder how many other songs may have been cut from previous albums. This mix of songs balances the John and Paul songs 6 and 6 with the two George songs, and with one of John's songs going to Ringo. (I thing Ringo would've given the Bungalow Bill song a Yellow Submarinesque spin which might have worked well)

That's my White Album but i don't know a running order
Back In The USSR
Cry Baby Cry
Happiness Is A Warm Gun
Martha My Dear
Mother Nature's Son
Everybody's Got Something To Hide Except For Me And My Monkey
I didn't take Revolution because a better version was released as a single. I think my 14 songs White Album doesn't miss many songs but of course I want to have every beatles songs so it wasn't a bad idea to release it as a double-album
Once there was a way to get back homewards. Once there was a way to get back home; sleep pretty darling do not cry. And I will sing a lullaby
Had to think about this one but I think I know, here goes (in no particular order):
1.Hapiness Is A Warm Gun
2. Back In The U.S.S.R
5. I'm So Tired
8. Cry Baby Cry
10. Glass Onion
11. Revolution 1
14. Don't Pass Me By
Moving along in our God given ways, safety is sat by the fire/Sanctuary from these feverish smiles, left with a mark on the door.

1 Ob-La-Di Ob-La-Da
3 Why Dont We Do It In The Road?
5 Revolution (single version)
6 Im So Tired
And then you wait like 5 or 10 minutes and all of a sudden!!!!!
If the Beatles had trimmed down the White Album to 14 songs, which songs would you leave in and which songs would you cut out?
Mine would probably go something like this:
Back In The USSR
While My Guitar Gently Weeps
I'm So Tired
Mother Nature's Son
Everybody's Got Something To Hide Except Me And My Monkey
Long, Long, Long
Happiness Is A Warm Gun
I mentioned in the "Overrated/Underrated" thread that this album could have been stellar instead of great had it been just a single album. The only problem I ever find with my stance on that is, I have a hard time excluding songs. The only ones I could absolutely do without are "Revolutiion 9" (not a song anyway, but rather an experimental piece) and "Good Night".
The list that sinco put together above (Welcome, BTW!) is terrific IMHO but there are so may other great songs on the album.
Besides, knowing me, I would have gone out and tried to obtain those tracks anyway by some other means (bootlegs, etc...) just because they were recorded by The Beatles!
That's how I feel today, anyway. Check back in about a week.
Welcome, Mr. Mustard! You might want to think up a new name for yourself - there's already a meanmistermustard here (not to mention a Mrs.) and he's got seniority.
One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!"
