Are the long ones that hard to get for folks? SPLHCB, EGSTHEMAMM, BFTBOMK, HCTS. I don't mean that in a patronising way, more that I never thought they would be difficult to understand. Going into the world of solo songs would be more difficult. Would anyone know what NTSGA referred to?

Have no idea how anyone would have a clue what B, or H was tho, writing Boys or Blackbird doesn't take that much time. Technically Anna should be A (GTH).

I don't know what they are except for SPLHCB, and I listen to the Beatles all the time.

Stevie Wonder has a 2-letter song title -- "As" (from Songs in the Key of Life); are there any songs by well-known musicians/bands with one letter titles?

 

P.S.:  It would be amusing to abbreviate "As" as AS.

The early-70's soft-rock group Bread had a ht with a song titled "If." I just checked over at their fan website, the "Bread Bible," and sure enough, it is referred to by the shorthand "I."*

*Totally not true.

There is a song called "M" which I owned years ago but I cannot for the life of me remember the artist.*

On the two letter title thread, Kendall Payne released a song called "Me". George Michael and Mary J Blige also had a song called "As".

 

*It could be buried amongst a pile of cds upstairs. I'll got and have a look.

Edit: The song "M" was released by an artist going by the name of "steve".

Anyway, I'd like to advocate for a principle, that when referring to Beatles songs, it's more respectful to type out the whole thing than to use a couple of words or to abbreviate.

This thread of Beatles' song initials has got me thinkin'… Do any of the Beatles' songs, when written out as initials, actually spell any words? I mean, "I Dig A Pony" spells out IDAP, but I'm not talking about Klingon. I mean a real word in the English language. Hmm… If anybody here is up to the challenge, then… GO! (Hey, wait a second; GO… "Glass Onion." How 'bout that? I got one almost by accident…) :)

I decided not to just sit around here on my "Ain't She Sweet," but to TAP ("There's A Place") into all the Beatle knowledge in my head, before I get too OLD OLD. ("Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da.") Or my name ain't ROB. ("Roll Over, Beethoven") 

Dang it, this ain't easy.

^^Excellent contributions.

Hope I don't get kicked in the Ain't She Sweet for some of these that are a bit of stretch:

Act Naturally "an" (short but very handy word)

Baby's In Black "bib" (& it is what a baby wears ahdn_george_08)

I'll Cry Instead
"ici" (means "here" in French. I hope foreign languages are allowed in the game.)

I'm Down "id" (I guess I need to check this song for further Freudian meanings. a-hard-days-night-john-3)

I'm Only Sleeping "iOS" (a mobile operating system)

Sea of Time "sot" (Was George Martin hitting the sauce when he named this one? george-martin)

Er, ("Eleanor Rigby") I think we've probably taken this Beatles song initials idea about as FAH ("Fixing A Hole") as it can GO. ("Glass Onion") It's time to let the air out of this trial balloon: SSSS… SS… ("She Said She Said," "Sexy Sadie")

cbatcu, I really got a kick out of your contributions, especially the French word ici. If Paul's former girlfriend "Michelle" happens to read a translation of this forum, she would also think it was tres bon. :)

It's OK when everyone knows what you're talking about.

I always write them out.  The abbreviations confuse the shit out of me.  

I'll see "TCSOBB" and be like..

 

My brain just won't make the concoction right away.  

"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!"
