Best Beatles Songs That Didn't Make It Into The Beatles Rock Band or DLC

In 2009, many Rock Band fans had been waiting for the Beatles to get some songs in the Rock Band DLC. Luckily, they got something much better. The Beatles Rock Band was a great success and included only the band's best songs. However, that's the thing about the Beatles-they have so many great songs that they can't all be included in one game! Soon after, three full albums-Sgt. Pepper, Abbey Road and Rubber Soul- were made available as DLC. Still, many of their best songs have yet to be released. I want you to tell me which Beatles songs that were not in the game or included as DLC would you like to see released.

    Yeah, very nice...

    Would've added: 'The Ballad of John & Yoko'; 'Baby's In Black'; 'I'm Only Sleeping'; 'Across The Universe'; 'Yesterday' & several others but that's a good start...:-)

    For me, it would be "Help!," "Strawberry Fields Forever," "Hey Jude," and "Yesterday." Those are my top four from The Fab Four that really, really should have been included on disc, IMO.

    The Hammer-Ons/Pull-Offs for 'Blackbird' would be crazy, or John's excellent rhythm guitar triplets for 'All My Loving' would be most challenging. Still hard to believe how some of these were passed over the first time around, I can appreciate that only so many could be chosen but some of these are "no-brainers", in my opinion...:-)

    To elaborate a little on sonicnerd23's remarks about the lack of a stereo master for some songs, in particular 'She Loves You', I thought that I'd link this up for the hardcore Beatlemaniacs
    http://www.beatlesagain.com/the-mystery-of-the-lost-beatles-track.html
    It documents very nicely some of the problems that the developers face when considering such an undertaking as making a song like this "RockBand Playable", but also presents a challenge just the same, and I believe that the developers behind this game would jump at an opportunity like this if resources were to permit it, it's not impossible, Jeff Lynne having to sync up John's 'Free As A Bird' mono demo to Paul, George & Ringo's live playing, now that was "impossible" (can we add that one to the list too)...:-)

    That first post was perfect, except I think the DLC should include Long, Long, Long and Blue Jay Way. I'm probably missing some others, but I think that these two songs would be amazing as DLC

    *EDIT* Also Rocky Raccoon. oh, and Revolution 9, just to see how it would be charted :p

    I'd probably have to resort to turning "No-Fail Mode" on for that "tune". I have wondered about how they'd implement that one myself, if the 'White Album' were ever to become an album DLC', and the only thing I could realistically see is that it have sparse vocal bits ("Number Nine", etc.) and have the focus put on the animations to make it worthwhile, maybe even have it as some sort of tribute to John & Yoko for it's their work and not The Beatles. If it were up to me I'd substitute 'What's The New Mary Jane' in its place for it was said to have been dropped from the album to make way for "Number Nine"...:-)

    My favorite song they didn't include is For No One, but it is pretty atypical. I guess the song they should've included that they didn't include is Baby You're a Rich Man.

    Yeah, charting that sped up backwards (I think it's a trumpet) track that rambles throughout 'Baby You're A Rich Man' behind Paul's excellent bass playing would've been a challenge for sure. Very underrated song, John's lyrics are a rare self-interview...:-)
