When I introduced the Beatles smileys I wanted to keep them just for A Hard Day's Night-era photos, but a few others have started creeping through (Two Virgins, Apple logo, Blue Meanie). So I wondered whether people think I should increase the selection to other eras.

I don't want to have dozens, but I'll add more when some really good designs come up. Here are some thoughts:

  • John with his arms in the air from the Help! cover, for celebration.
  • Abbey Road figures.
  • Maybe even thumbnails of each of the album covers, for when people are discussing them.

What I really want is for smileys that actually say something, rather than just dozens of Beatle pics for the sake of it. That's why I didn't want all the Help! figures, just the one of John.

Can anyone suggest any pics that might work well, and what emotion/activity they might signify?

The following people thank Joe for this post:

I would still like Stu with shades, to indicate both Stu and cool. If I can find a good picture, I'll post it.

I like your ideas, but I'm not sure about the Abbey Road figures. What would they indicate?  Would you include the white VW?

Don't know really. I thought Abbey Road could be a generic 'walking away' one, but there's probably no need for a smiley to signify that.

I like the idea of the thumbnails of the albums for when they're being discussed.

If you decide to do that, though, I think you should put them in a separate smiley tab, you know? Like where it says smileys, you could put a tab next to it that says "Covers" and that's where you would be able to access the cover smileys.

I'd like to see a smiley of Paul, that can be found on the cover of Revolver, where he appears to be bawling... but Ringo's head is covering part of his face, so I don't know if that would be possible.

Maybe you could do some Yellow Submarine ones of the cartoon Beatles. Or the cartoon Beatles from the actual Beatles cartoon!

Also the glove from YS might be useful.

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

He definitely was a big man. From all accounts I've read or heard he had a big heart as well.

The man is most deserving of a smiley, at the very least.

Right! And if 2 separate smileys don't work, one combined smiley would.
