THIS iS THE HAD TO THE KNOWN TOPIC WHERE YOU SAY ABOUT BEATLES SONGS OR LYRICS THAT ARE HAD TO THE KNOWN IN OTHER BEATLES SONGS!
Now for the firstly one, I'll say an easier one, which is called that in I Am The Walrus it says something about Lucy In The Sky[With Diamonds]

mith - that is a cool chart from a cool site.
The chart that shows their working schedule during the earlier years is fascinating.

The Beatles made many references to their own lives and other songs in later songs. Which is your favorite?
I'll start with the first one I noticed: In Glass Onion are the lines "and here's another clue for you all, the walrus was Paul".
Happy new year!

@Matt Busby, i've moved your post here as its the same conversation, albeit buried in the archives. Hope that suits you
That's fine mmm - although the topic I had in mind is slightly broader, I think it's OK to leave it here... See my example and do what you think is right. I'm looking for "self" references in lyrics, but not necessarily references to other lyrics.
Anyway, a lot of "obvious" (and some not so obvious) lyrics about other lyrics have been listed, but I'm also looking for overt references to real life things. One would be, in getting better, the verse about treating his woman badly. Another easy one is The Ballad Of John And Yoko.
This is a tricky one as most songs start from a real life something... They may end up having nothing to do with real life when they're finished.
I would include songs that specifically mention real life names, like Dear Prudence
And I'd open it up to their solo work, so songs like the Man on the Flaming Pie and Apple Scruffs would qualify. I think Queenie Eye is somewhat autobiographical too, being in the first person means it's about a specific person (the author).
I can't get this to format right, this sentence should be after "Dear Prudence" above: I wouldn't o include songs that don't refer to specifically named things, like something (even though it was written about someone and we all know who, it could have been written by any man in love with any woman). only nobody else could express it so beautifully
I'm running short on time - I just had this almost reworked and hit the wrong key and backed out. I'll make my idea clearer later.

Isn't there a thread somewhere about their references to each other in post-Beatles songs? Early 1970, Too Many People, How Do You Sleep?, When We Was Fab, etc.....
