A post-Beatles list without John Lennon's song 'God' is unacceptable and will be immediately rendered null and void in the eyes of....well...God.

Actually, I agree. Then again, I'd be okay not including Mother.

I couldn't stand it. After listening to the first list I made, I knew I could refine and perfect the process. In doing so, I ended up creating 4 12-song albums where the song-choices on each album reflect the year and the order of release (though I tinkered with a song or two, making them come out later than they originally did). Some might say this is overkill--especially since I wound up leaving Mother out--and they just might be right. However, I think these 4 albums would've been fucking brilliant as Beatles albums (just look at the fucking amount of singles!). Also, I tried to put them together like Beatles albums in where songs by the band members are placed (so that the same member doesn't get opening songs on both sides, or closing songs on both sides, and mixing it up so one singer never gets more than two in a row, etc). Again, just trying to put forth my best effort now, as the first one was ill-conceived.

No "How Do You Sleep?" means I won't even think of listening to those albums. Suck on that, son.

B-b-but Lennon and McCartney wouldn't be at such odds on Beatles recordings, would they...? They'd save that stuff to be on parallel solo released, wouldn't they...?

McCartney's "Too Many People" digs on Lennon and Harrison's "Wah-Wah" hits at all of them.

And hell, if we're sticking to that argument, "God"'s most famous line is "I don't believe in Beatles, I just believe in me."

Well yeah, there's that. But that's not so searing. I also partly left it out because I like the songs I used from off Imagine better than it.

True, but Lennon said it's as much of a dig on himself than it is on McCartney, if that helps.

I'm just giving you a hard time, anyway... discs look good. Although, if they were real Beatles' albums, Ringo would have at least one track on all of them, not just 2, but I'm sure you know that already.

Oh, I know. But probably if they were real albums, McCartney/Lennon would've written Ringo two songs for the albums without. Most of Ringo's solo stuff is pretty piss-poor though.

Oh definitely... I'm glad you didn't follow through with that old fact, haha.

Are you a fan of McCartney? You've hardly used anything from that album.

While I do like the album, I only really think one track stands out as much as the material on Ram or Band On The Run. So I represented it as well as I represented Wild Life and Red Rose Speedway. I just listened to McCartney a couple days ago and liked it better than I remembered.

I haven't heard Wild Life all of the way through, but do enjoy Red Rose Speedway quite a bit.

Also, apart from not having "God" on it, what did you think of my list?

I thought it was good. It's lacking some of my personal favourites, though. But we agree on Ringo's two songs for sure. I've never really felt Run of the Mill was in Harrison's upper echelon. And you're missing quite possibly my favourite Harrison song (Awaiting On You All). It's a good list overall and I'll probably try it out at work pretty soon.
