Now I love the Beatles' "White Album" just the way it is, but if you were forced to condense it to one12 song LP, what would be your choice of songs? Mine would be as follows:

1. Birthday
2. Dear Prudence
3. Sexy Sadie
4. Happiness is a Warm Gun
5. Julia
6. Blackbird
7. Cry Baby Cry
8. Rocky Racoon
9. Piggies
10. Long, Long, Long
11. Yer Blues
12. Helter Skelter

Tough to choose, but I think this would be the most satisfying group of songs. Your thoughts?

As long as "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" is on it, I don't care.

O.O Change the White Album? No no no...

But I'm going to have to say (in no order, 'cause I'm too lazy to put them in an order):

Dear Prudence
Glass Onion
While My Guitar Gently Weeps
Happiness is a Warm Gun
Blackbird
Piggies
Rocky Raccoon
Why Don't We Do It In The Road?
Julia
Birthday
Helter Skelter
Good Night

Not in any specific order, but having Good Night as the last track. It's such a fitting end to an amazing set of songs.

+1, While My Guitar Gently Weeps is one of the best songs on the White Album.

Of course, by having to narrow it down to just twelve songs, you'd be forced to take out the diversity and overall fucked-upness that makes The White Album so great.
