Hot take: Other than Not Guilty (which was already played by the Beatles in 1968), I'm not sure any of the songs I'd want in a hypothetical album would work as Beatles songs. My list would be something like this (relatively off the top of my head):

Looking at that list, there's little chance that any of those John and Paul could work if the Beatles were there backing bands and probably having input into the song's development.

The following people thank mr. Sun king coming together for this post:

I just made one of these myself. I think that the only way The Beatles would've been able to record another album is if they had fired Paul, since the other 3 got along fairly well but none of them got along with Paul by the end of 1969, so i made sure not to include any Paul songs.

I based this off John Lennon 's 1970 solo album:

Side A:

Mother

My Sweet Lord

I Found Out

Working Class Hero

Cold Turkey

Side B:

It Don't Come Easy

I Me Mine

Love

Instant Karma

God

My Mummy's Dead

Would definitely be interesting to hear 'I don't believe in Beatles' on a Beatles album.

Hey Jude Album (Mono)

No it doesn’t really exist, but I made my own track list and I really like it as I play the disc I burned a lot. 

What do you guys think of the track list? This is meant to mostly complete a US discography if you add the albums after Revolver .

Everything is obviously in Mono..

Side 1.

1.From Me To You

2.There’s A Place

3.Misery

4.I’M Down 

5.Paperback Writer

6.Rain

7.Hey Bulldog

8.Only A Northern Song

Side 2

1. Hey Jude

2.The Inner Light

3.Don’t Let Me Down

4. All Together Now

5. Revolution

6. Lady Madonna

7. It’s All Too Much

Looks like an enjoyable listen, and it's interesting to imagine the Yellow Sub tracks in a different context. But I miss the two missing singles; and the second side would have to be mastered at a low volume since it's about half an hour long.

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!"

When i first saw this, i thought it was about the mono version of Hey Jude , which uses the original single mixes of most of the songs instead of being a fold down like most mono albums released at this time.

As for the tracklisting, i wish A Hard Day's Night was there. Also, i think Capitol should've done with Yellow Submarine what they did with MMT which would mean that Lady Madonna , The Inner Light , Hey Jude , Revolution , and the 4 Yellow Submarine tracks wouldn't be there.
