Default whats missing from red/blue albums

I've been thinking recently that since the red (1962-1966) and blue(1967-1970) albums are generally considered a greatest hits package there are a hell of a lot of songs that are missing. They should put together a compilation album called "songs that should have been put on either the red or blue albums but for whatever reason were not put there." Of course the obvious answer is to buy every single album ever released but just to humour everyone here is my list for my album "songs that should have been on either the red or blue albums but for whatever reason were not put there".

-i saw her standing there

-if i fell

-twist and shout

-i'm a loser

-i'll follow the sun

- here there and everywhere

- getting better

-fixing a hole

-blackbird (how magical mystery tour makes the cut over this is beyond me!)

- you never give me your money

- i've got a feeling(10x better than old brown shoe)

- two of us

i'm sure i'm missing about 20 other but i have to get back to work

ps it actually interested that these song which were looked over for the red+blue albums would blow away the greatest hits packages of 99% of all other bands

Baby's In Black instead of Eight Days A Week

I'm Looking Through You instead of Drive My Car


Your Mother Should Know instead of Magical Mystery Tour

Sexy Sadie instead of Ob-La Di, Ob-La-Da

Dig A Pony instead of Old Brown Shoe

Oh! Darling instead of Octopus's Garden

They'd be hits no matter what was on them

Red Album:

"I Saw Here Standing There" instead of "Love Me Do"
"I Should Have Known Better" instead of "Can't Buy Me Love"
"If I Fell" instead of "Michelle"
"I'm Looking Through You" instead of "Drive My Car" (like Clark said)
"Here There and Everywhere" instead of "Girl"
"Taxman" instead of "Yellow Submarine"

Blue Album:

"Blackbird" instead of "Magical Mystery Tour" (as matt5 said)
"Dear Prudence" instead of "Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da"
"Hey Bulldog" instead of "The Fool On The Hill"
"Two Of Us" instead of "The Ballad of John and Yoko"

There is a very fine line between "hobby" and "mental illness." - Dave Barry
