I couldn't think of any other place to put this, but I was playing Norwegian Wood on guitar a few days ago and my friend liked it so he got the song and it's his new favorite!

I'm gonna give him copies of the Red and Blue albums on CD with a CD that has my favorite songs on it that aren't on the best of's (including of course the whole Abbey Road medley!) I think he's really gonna like the Beatles, hopefully I can convince him to join the forum eventually.

If I spoke prose you'd all find out, I don't know what I talk about.

Hopefully, you will be successful and can tell us about it on the nice new thread you created.

While listening to A Day In The Life yesterday, I thought to myself "The Beatles have been derailing their own threads (songs) since before many of us were born". Then I thought about the Abbey Road medley.

What was their first song that was a combination of two completely different songs (or song fragments)?

We Can Work It Out springs to mind first, but there was probably something before that.

The earliest that I can think of off the top of my head is Girl, but I doubt that that's the earliest.  (EDIT: ...and while I was typing this post out, Faceo mentioned one that is earlier.  I'll just leave the rest of the post as is.)

From the Beatles Bible article on Girl:

"Part of the music was actually written by McCartney while on a Greek holiday in September 1963.

'In the song Girl that John wrote, there's a Zorba-like thing at the end that I wrote which came from that holiday. I was very impressed with another culture's approach because it was slightly different from what we did. We just did it on acoustic guitars instead of bouzoukis.'
Paul McCartney
Many Years From Now, Barry Miles"
 
 
Also, if you define "combine two song fragments" more loosely and include when lyrics were completely rewritten or when new lyrics were written to an older piece of music, then Michelle, Drive My Car, and In My Life count.

I've been looking at this lately and dreaming.  It's pretty cool.  It's a guitar from 1898 in excellent shape.

Ultra Rare 1898 Martin 1-34

I don't have $30,000 to spare, though.
