Okay! So I hear that there is a secret phone number in "You Know My Name (Look up The Number)" They say it's after the cuckoo clock.a-hard-days-night-ringo-6

Supposedly if you call it all yo will hear is "Beware of Abbey Road" And the line goes dead!!! a-hard-days-night-paul-4 Spooky!

I havn't been able to hear it but if anyone else can please tell the number!

Oh, I've heard bits and pieces about this. I think it's one of those Beatles myths that sprung up and nobody's ever proved (because they're myths).

At one point in the song there's a cuckoo sound which happens five times in a row. Somewhere around that point a number is supposedly read out (I can't hear it, unless it's the "You know me number one, you know me number two" bit). Apparently when people tried calling it they heard the "Beware of Abbey Road" message.

There's another version of the story, whereby if you hold up a mirror to the Magical Mystery Tour cover you get a phone number (this link has various interpretations of what the number might be). The number supposedly gave info on the Paul Is Dead myth.

One other thing - if you read my You Know My Name article there's a quote by Dennis O'Dell, who had worked on the A Hard Day's Night film and ran Apple Films. He got plagued with phone calls after the song came out (his name and number were in the phone book, as in the song).

Please don't spoil my day; I'm miles away

Thank you, Joe, for not saying something like "I found a great article on my favorite website."

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