    Running order is so important! Let's have some fun and rejig classic albums by changing the order. Put most depressing songs first, bury the hit single at the end - whatever you want!

    Here's OK Computer:

    1. Exit Music for a Film
    2. The Tourist
    3. Let Down
    4. Climbing Up the Walls
    5. Airbag
    6. Fitter Happier
    ------------------------------------
    7. Lucky
    8. Electioneering
    9. Karma Police
    10. Subterranean Homesick Alien

    11. No Surprises
    12. Paranoid Android

    I wanted to start the album off with the most sombre, difficult tracks, throw in Airbag, then kill the momentum of that with Fitter Happier. The best songs are shoved at the back, and the centrepiece Paranoid Android is last, where it absolutely doesn't belong.

    It would still be a great album, but man, side 1 would be tough!

    Looking forward to more terrible classics ;)

    Starting it with Good Night would also be hilarious!

    Then, just scramble up the songs on The Medley...thus ruining a great sequence of tunes that we all know so well.

    Amidst all it's great tracks, there's at least one solid side of contract-fulfilling garbage on the White Album. Sorry not sorry.

    Wow, that would have been like their Nashville Skyline/Sweetheart of the Rodeo style country rock LP.

    Nice, I was thinking Tommy with all the short tracks together on side one with "Underture" stuck in the middle. I don't know the album well enough to make the rest optimally, awful, though.

    Oh, I agree! That's a terrible line-up. I was looking for the puke symbol. Here it comes! :hurlleft:
