Default Cuting the The Beatles (White Album) down to a single LP

Was talking about this with punkypop on the favourite Beatles album thread, and decided it deserved a discussion of its own. The poll is a multiple choice, so pick your 15-song tracklist.

Mine:

Side 1
Back in the U.S.S.R.
Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da
Martha My Dear
While My Guitar Gently Weeps
I Will
Birthday
Happiness is a Warm Gun

Side 2
Revolution 1
Rocky Raccoon
Blackbird
Julia
Dear Prudence
Helter Skelter
Good Night

EDIT: My tracklist clocks in at 47:32. Abbey Road, their longest album is 47:23. I've since decided that 14 tracks would be a more realistic choice. Of course, it all depends on the songs you choose. Feel free to shake up the order.

Darn. Exceeded the five minute limit on the poll. And now there appear to be two identical threads...?

This is really difficult. I actually rather enjoyed a large portion of the White Album (though some of it's best left to deeply drugged moods). Well.

Furthermore, a single LP cut during that era probably wouldn't have been able to harbor 15 tracks (I think that's absolutely ludicrous for anything other than those shitty K-Tel compilations of the 70s & 80s) so I'm gonna go ahead and keep it era-appropriate, with an 11 track maximum.

I think I'll mix the tracks up a little, too.

Side A

Everybody's Got Something to Hide Except Me & My Monkey
Dear Prudence
Martha My Dear
I'm So Tired
Glass Onion

Side B

Savoy Truffle
Mother Nature's Son
Honey Pie
Happiness is a Warm Gun
I Will
While My Guitar Gently Weeps

Abbey Road is about 47 minutes long. So 15 songs with an average length of three minutes would fit. But the White Album songs vary so much in length (Wild Honey Pie-Revolution 9) I suppose it depends on which songs you pick.
