Not really. It's not like we're going to St. George or anything like that.

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

I didn't know there were any…? Hmm… a-hard-days-night-ringo-13

I know Paul sings about Jimmy Page's guitar on "Rock Show". And John sings about Bob Dylan a bunch.

Oh! "Dig It" and "Yer Blues" are the only ones I can recall.

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

It's time to blow the dust off of this thread and air it out again.

This one is from a book my wife bought me for Christmas.

There are 16 original Beatles songs that begin a capella - if even for one syllable. Name them.george-martin

Paperback Writer, Your Mother Should Know (Sorta, depends), Hello Goodbye, Penny Lane, PS I Love You, I Saw Her Standing There, Taxman, Here There And Everywhere, Yellow Submarine, It Won't Be Long, Eleanor Rigby, Can't Buy Me Love, If I Fell, When I Get Home, Another Girl, Help!

There's 16.

The ones I bolded are right. By the way - count-ins (1,2,3,4!) do not count.

mr S left a lot on the table boys and girls.

Because is one of them.

And even if I'm wrong, Paul thinks I'm right *17*

 

Shoot…I'm wrong and so is Paul. Oh well…

Ummm….I'm Happy Just To Dance With You?

 

Nope.

You are very good, BJway.

I was just listening to the Fabs and when Yellow Submarine came on I thought, "Aha! The book was wrong! There are 17!"  You also nailed Oh! Darling and You're Going to Lose That Girl.

mr S was awesome as well because he got most of them. The only one you guys did not guess was I Will.

Who has the next question?
