I'm looking for a little help from my British friends. In a Brian Epstein biog, he was quoted as saying "I think that America is ready for the Beatles. When they come, they will hit this country for six." What does "hit for six" mean and what is its origin?

Thanks, in advance.mal-evans

Six is the maximum score you can get in a cricket match in one attempt. Normally the batsmen score runs (running across the pitch) when the bowler bowls. The number of runs in one bowling action is the number of the score the batting team gets. You get six when you hit the ball high enough that it is hurled beyond the boundary (without touching the boundary line or landing on the ground). Hope I made it clearer.a-hard-days-night-paul-7

I need to make a Powerpoint about my interests for school and I am of course going to mention The Beatles. So, I want to add one part of a Beatles song. But I have no idea which one, any suggestions?

You probably know some songs won't go with it. You know you can't use Wild Honey Pie or Revolution 9, or The Long And Winding Road. I would pick a nice upbeat one. Here Comes The Sun perhaps? I have used that one a few times in Powerpoints and it worked perfectly well, even got complimented about it.

@Zig Hit for six - hit the cricket ball as hard as you can out so it goes over the boundary line without touching the ground beforehand to get the generally viewed maximum amount of runs (tho you can get more if the team bowling make a mess of it all in their fielding). 

Eppy basically meant they'd hit the US hard and knock them out of the park.

I don't like the way the chorus sounds and the horns right before are like BLEH and it just sounds bad to me

Thanks. I've seen this before, just have to remember how to fix it.

Please report any other problems to this thread. Impossible-to-derail normally moves too quickly for me to keep track of everything.
