Okay, bad title aside…

As I'm sure most of you have noticed, in Beatles movies, their songs are used as background music, but in a different style, e.g. orchestral.

There wouldn't be any in Let it Be (for obvious reasons), but I've noticed some in the others.

She Loves You and All My Loving were in MMT, as circus music and orchestral music respectively.

A Hard Day's Night was in the restaurant scene in Help!, as well.

Can anyone think of any others?

Not in a Beatles movie, but I think a cover version of I'm Looking Through You was used in Ghost Town.


There was a cover of that song on The Muppet Show, where ghosts sang it. a-hard-days-night-paul-11

There actually was one in A Hard Day's Night called "This Boy (Ringo's Theme)", which has become my favorite instrumental of a Beatles song because of it. It played while Ringo was "parading". a-hard-days-night-george-9

This doesn't really count as "background music", but in Yellow Submarine, when they arrive in Pepperland and need to wake up the old man, they sing a tiny part of "Think For Yourself" to recover him. (Was it featured in full? I was just looking at the songtrack and it has it there. I don't think it was full in the movie though…?) a-hard-days-night-ringo-4

I'm in love, but I'm lazy.

Oh yeah, I forgot about This Boy. Now I feel stupid... Ahahaha

I don't remember Think For Yourself being in it, but I haven't seen the movie in a while. I'll have to watch it again

Okay, I got rid of the bit about AHDN... -_-

Ahaha, well there aren't any in Let it Be at least.
