I think "Something" has a wah-wah.

I'd like to say "thank you" on behalf of the group and ourselves and I hope we passed the audition. John Lennon

"Across The Universe" (Past Masters version) is right!

I've never noticed any on "Abbey Road" personally, but there's a LOT of guitars on that album, so who knows?

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!" -- Paul McCartney

I know this I know this!!!! He dreamed of a guy with a flaming pie telling him "Now, your name is Beatles!"

 

That's why Paul called the album after Anthology "Flaming Pie". (if my memory doesn't fail me)

Erm… Can I take a turn?

Each Beatle was mentioned, by name, in at least one song. Name the songs that mention the Beatles by name. 

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.

I think it's "Go, Johnny, go," but I won't be picky.

No, no wah-wah in that one. Rhythm guitar is played though a Leslie, though.

I just want to play. I’d like to think I could work opposite Sinatra, B.B. King, the Beatles, or a polka band... - Jazz musician Rahsaan Roland Kirk, 1967

Umb.. I didn't know what you all were talking about with Wah Wah until I went to wikipedia and I saw Voodoo Child. Then I knew what wah wah is.

 

Love the song. Hate the overuse of it in movies. (Don't mind though in the Name of the Father)

5, I think. Komm Gib Me Deine Hand (Don't know if that's how it's spelt), She Liebt Dich, Sun King, Michelle, and I think Shiek of Araby had a few arabic lines.

Do you mean by name, or quoted lyrics?

Right now, I came up with:
"I Am The Walrus." "See how they fly like Lucy in the sky, see how they run."

"Lady Madonna." "See how they run."

"Glass Onion." "I told you about Strawberry Field(s), you know, the place where nothing is real" "I told you about the walrus and me-man," "Lady Madonna trying to make ends meet," "I told you about The Fool On The Hill," "Fixing A Hole in the ocean."

"Savoy Truffle." "We all know Obla dibla da." 

That's what I came up with.

You got the spelling right except for "Mir" and "Sie." Other than that, you're good. What's "Shiek of Araby?" I've never heard of it.a-hard-days-night-ringo-4

It's from Anthology One. I don't remember any Arabic in it though. Maybe you mean the not 'arf after the line "Into your tent I'll creep"?

I didn't even know what he was saying until I looked it up.
