The Beatles Next Album

Updated on September 14, 2020

While I was alive during The Beatle years I did not fully become aware if them until 1973. Since then have appreciated how great they are.

Would The Beatles Have Stayed Together?

In my opinion, The Beatles were (and still are) the greatest group of all-time. It is still fascinating to me to look at how they grew musically from early songs such as Love Me Do to some of their later songs like Strawberry Fields Forever.

While many blame Yoko Ono for their breakup, she was not the only factor. I think the biggest single factor was the death of their Manager, Brian Epstein. Had he not died, The Beatles would not have had to deal with the business side of music. I think that would have been huge as far as them staying together in some degree. I think they would have done solo work, but I still think that they would have back together and done some more albums on a regular basis.

The Beatles next album

The last album that The Beatles ever recorded together was Abby Road in the late summer of 1969.

If The Beatles would have stayed together, it would be tough to figure what songs would have been on their nextalbum. The reason is because they would have each been in a different situation so who knows if they would have written the same songs they actually wrote. As a group, Paul would bring his songs to John and John would make any necessary suggestions and vice versa.

I wonder if George presented My Sweet Lord to the group if someone would have mentioned that it sounded an awful lot like He's So Fine.

Well I am going to work with what we have and see what happens. We know that in the later years Ringo was getting one song per album, George was usually getting two songs and the rest were John and Paul. We also know that most albums contained 12-14 songs.

Most people would say it is easy to figure out Ringo's song but I disagree. Ringo's biggest hit in 1970 was Beaucoups of Blues. There is no doubt that would have been his contribution except Ringo didn't write it. I have a feeling that John or Paul would have written a song for Ringo instead of him selecting a song written by someone else. Since we don't have the luxury of knowing what John or Paul would have written, we will go with Beaucoups of Blues for Ringo.

Beatles Songs From 1970

George would have had two songs. This is kind of tough because George released a great double album in 1970 with All Things Must Pass. I am going with the theory that someone would have stepped up and kept My Sweet Lord off the album due to the similarity to He's So Fine. In my humble opinion, the next two best songs from George's album were What is Life? and Isn't It A Pity? so I will go with those two songs for George.

That leaves 9-11 songs for John and Paul. This becomes difficult because Paul didn't write many quality songs in 1970. In fact I am going to suggest that John and Paul only contribute a total of eight songs to the album. Paul has two that I will include. Junk and in my opinion, what should have been released as the first single Maybe I'm Amazed.

John would have six songs in my opinion. Mother, Cold Turkey, Love, God, Working Class Hero and, in my opinion, the second single, Instant Karma.

So far in my scenario, The Beatles have an eleven song album. I am going to add one last song and I am going to break the tradition of two George Harrison songs simply because Paul didn't write many good songs in 1970. The final song is Wah-Wah.

As I stated at the beginning of the article, this is tough to do because each Beatle would have been in a different situation. I am sure Paul would have contributed more than two songs and Ringo's Beaucoups of Blues would not have been on the album, but we work with what we have. Following is the list of songs I have compiled in no particular order.
