Hey you forgot to rename the album to Abbe Rd.
Love the songs on each and every album.
If it ain't broke don't fix it.
Those emocons are awesome
Like the emoticons which is why I replied
I rarely play side one
My side 2
Here comes the sun
You Never Give Me My Money (4.02)
Sun King (2.26)
Mean Mr. Mustard (1.06)
Polythene Pam (1.13)
She Came In Through The Bathroom Window (1.58)
Golden Slumbers (1.32)
Carry That Weight (1.37)
Or maybe Abbey Culdesac?
What if you removed "Oh! Darling" and added "Bip Bop"?
At the very least "Oh bip bop.... she came in through the bathroom window."
Change nothing And You have a great Album
Surely a good running order, but I've loved Abbey Road the way it was intended to, so no need changing it for me
You can't change "You", it's on Extra Texture.
Ah! I bet you're saving them for your Let It Be!
If that's the way you wanna' hear it, go right ahead but I want it the way the Beatles intented.
No stupid songs on a Beatles album?
All seriousness, being that they basically started the Abbey Road sessions out of nowhere while finishing Get Back, what if the pre-official sessions were mixed in with the Get Back songs to create an improved Get Back (we can call this Savile Row):
Side One (studio):
1. "Let It Be"
3. "Two Of Us"
4. "Oh! Darling"
5. "Octopus's Garden"
6. "I Want You" (missing the "She's So Heavy" section)
Side Two (live)
1. "I've Got a Feeling"
2. "Don't Let Me Down"
3. "One After 909"
4. "Dig a Pony"
5. "For You Blue" (studio recording, added to the "live" side to give George another song)
6. "Get Back"
If anything, I would keep the track running the same but put in Ballad of John and Yoko in place of Maxwell, and then Old Brown Shoe in place of Octopus Garden. Maxwell and Octopus Garden could have been a 45 geared toward the younger kids getting in to the Beatles. and Ringo could have had an A side....
As far as Im concerned anyone can make any playlist they wish.
But to call it leaner,meaner and much better than the real album
With that said it s up to anyone to like and dislike whatever they like
but it has nothing to do with the original album that imo is perfect as it is. As a whole were the summary is better than some of the parts
Change anything of that makes a nice playlist but Abbey Road it ain t.
Mike Baxter (OP)? Dave Dexter? Its all beginning to make sense now.
Just terrible. What was the OP thinking!
I am wasting my time reading this thread, when I could be listening to music. My bad.
And BTW, Abbey Road is a masterpiece as it is.
Paul has some shoes on and no cigarette in his hand. John thought it's way too hot to have a beard and decided to shave it off. George's denim jacket is replaced by a white shirt.
It w as a hot and sunny day in London on August 8th 1969.
Is it common knowledge that ‘I want you’ and ‘because’ are the same riff?
Took me years to realize this.
Btw, adding ‘maxwells hammer’ and ‘octopus’ to let it be could only help let it be.
This is one of the more bearable attempts. I have my own issues with the record though. Come Together and Here Comes The Sun just got overplayed for me to the point I never want to hear either one ever again.
So much anger.
Peace and love! C'mon, socks and sandal brigade, give peace a chance!
I'm gonna start a thread about how the US Revolver is better than Uk because its cuts out all those mediocre Lennon songs and break the internet!
