Mostly in no particular order.

1. Back in the U.S.S.R. Great start for any album. I have to keep it just for the jet noise and opening chords.
2. Dear Prudence My favorite song on the album.
3. Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da Awfully cute, but it stays.
4. While My Guitar Gently Weeps The 2nd best song on the album.
5. Happiness Is a Warm Gun I read that John didn't like it. I do.
6. Blackbird Sweet chord progression.
7. Rocky Raccoon I loved this as a kid.
8. Don't Pass Me By Borderline
9. Julia
10. Birthday Borderline
11. Everybody's Got Something To Hide
12. Sexy Sadie
13. Helter Skelter A great 60's metal song.
14. Revolution 1 I like the slow version. Campuses haven't changed much.
15. Revolution 9 It's completely cerebral, but it still interests me. And it hasn't been played to death on the radio.

Definitely gone are:

Glass Onion I always thought it was whiny.
Wild Honey Pie This is your Beatles on drugs. Gone.
Savoy Truffle It always bugs me.

But since I'm here...

2. Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da
3. Happiness Is a Warm Gun

I don't understand why you would want to trim a classic album like that in the first place. Since most players nowadays will play them, just make one mp3 disc and leave everything intact. Hell, you'd even have enough room to get a few more Beatles albums on there along with it!

It's not about that. It's about...I don't know what it's about, but I know it's a fun way to spend the workday.

So 9 years ago, I still mostly used my 100 disc cd player to listen to music. This thread arose one night when I had the player on random and of course it picked Revolution #9. That always pissed me off. I haven't thought about this in a long time because I don't even have physical cds anymore. Still a fun exercise to go through.

Hell, looking at my original list, I had to leave off Cry Baby Cry. That is blasphemy.

1. Birthday
2. Back in the U.S.S.R.
3. Dear Prudence
4. Continuing Story of Bungalow Bill
5. While My Guitar Gently Weeps
6. Blackbird
7. Revolution 1
8. Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da
9. I'm So Tired
10. Mother Nature's Son
11. Sexy Sadie

Re: Try to cut The White Album down to a single disc [merged]

I would definitely leave out "Revolution 9" but not sure what else I would cut besides "Wild Honey Pie"

However, "Helter Skelter" would absolutely have to be the stereo version. I was completely surprised when I heard the mono version and it didn't have the line "I've got blisters on my fingers!" in it.
