    Recently, while I was perusing the resurrected "Are you Satisfied with the Beatles Red and Blue Compilations" thread, it again occurred to me that a second volume of each of these could be made with additional album tracks so I took on the challenge.
    I planned to title them The Aquamarine and Mauve Albums, but decided that because these would be Volume 2 secondary colors would be more appropriate.
    Admittedly whenever I see lengthy lists I tend to slide through them like the Penny Lane fireman on his fire house pole, but still I persisted.
    I increased 62-66 to 8 tracks a side while 67-70 stands pat at 7 per side.
    To make this thread more interactive I invite all to rip my choices asunder (as if I have a choice).

    I believe this thread demonstrates just how very deep the Beatles canon quality runs. I even have a Best Buy bonus disc of culled choices for those who purchase these together.

    I realize there is no track from Magical Mystery Tour, but really Baby You're a Rich Man was the only viable candidate remaining.
    I've just never really cared for that track at all.
    Blackbird, Mother Nature's Son and For No One were also solid candidates that didn't even make my Culls bonus disc.
    I've never been big on George Harrison so he may be a little under represented. Woud have been nice if I could have worked in Long, Long, Long.
    I like the lyrics to Yer Blues but it hasn't aged well for me at all.

    Id never complain about any beatles track list. That would be an enjoyable lineup. Rain shouldnt be confined to the bonus tho.

    I would make room for Got to Get You Into My Life and She's A Woman. Both top 10 hits in the USA. also Thank You Girl and I'm down . Plenty of good ones left in the tank .

    Abbey Road is my favorite Beatles album. Typically when I listen to it, I listen to the entire CD from beginning to end, well almost....

    I can barely stand this song. Maybe had I been alive and listening to the record when it was released, I could have liked it. However, it has never grown on me and I skip it.

    Worst. Beatles. "Song." Want to know what is faster than the speed of light? Me hitting the "Next Track" button when this song is queued up on 'Abbey Road.'
