It's been awfully quiet, so I will take it upon myself to name the next category: 

Name all the songs that mention the sun or sunshine! 

(Yes, I know it was the example used at the beginning of this thread! But it's a good category!)

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

I'll follow the sun, Mr. Sun (The Quarrymen covered it), Good Day Sunshine, Here Comes The Sun I think is all of them.

Does Sun King count?

Yes. So do songs that mention the sun or sunshine in the lyrics.

Bit more trivia: the working title of Sun King was Here Comes The Sun King. Presumably they changed it as it was similar to Here Comes The Sun, but I kind of like that.

The full list is too long to post, but there are a few songs with "Girl" in their titles:

"Thank You Girl"

"You're Gonna Lose That Girl"

"Girl"

Funny story: We were playing Beatles Trivial pursuit when my mom got a card like that and it took 15 minutes for her to think of "Thank You Girl".

Totally off-topic but is Beatles: Trivial Pursuit any good? Challenging for us beatle-freaks?

It's at Borders. I've been wanting to get it, but I have a feeling no one would play it with me. a-hard-days-night-paul-11

It's really US-oriented. You should know your US album track listing and covers.
