"Please don't bring your banjo back, I know where it's been..  I wasn't hardly gone a day, when it became the scene..  Banjos!  Banjos!  All the time, I can't forget that tune..  and if I ever see another banjo, I'm going out and buy a big balloon!"

It annoys me even more when people say ''Ringo never sang'' or when they mix up John, Paul and George in songs. As in ''Wow George sang Blackbird so well'' or something like that.

I think I might be repeating myself (but I'm too lazy to go back and check), but it bothers me when people think Paul is only a mellow pop softy (that's what the "Silly Love Songs" thing was all about back in the 70s).  Even worse, a friend of mine had the gall to add insult to injury by refusing to believe that it was Paul singing "Why Don't We Do It In The Road?" -- he insisted it had to be John, because you know, John is more "raw" blah blah blah.

This is related to a similar pet peeve of mine -- when people make the same assumption about James Taylor, not knowing that he's not just a mellow folkie "singer/songwriter" but that he can be raunchy as well:

One of the many annoying mix-ups:

"I really like the way John sang Helter Skelter!" or something to that effect.

But sometimes that happens like Get Back for example where all four sang a version. There's also a version of Oh Darling! where John is singing, Strawberry Fields Forever with Paul singing and Octopus' Garden with George singing.
