I saw the first article and the first thing I thought was, Mitt Romney has a Ticket To Ride a Beatle?


... I think there's something wrong with me.  *shudders*

I didn't remember Bill Clinton as being that young when he was elected President. Nor do I remember him as being revolutionary.

Nevertheless...

It's common to see Beatle song titles and lyrics in the media.

But I've never seen three songs in one article:

The title reads "Revolution" and then the captions says "Help!" .... it's a " Long and winding road" facing the UK economy

(from this weekend's Financial Times. [The fellow next to me on the train was reading this article. Had to go out and buy it])

A Day In The Life is over-used here. "Here, There And Everywhere" is also used to refer about things that surround us.

I don´t know if he means to ''quote'' The Beatles but the cook Jamie Oliver always says put this... that...Here, There And Everywhere. Maybe I´m just trying to see them in everything paul-mccartneya-hard-days-night-ringo-13

Moving along in our God given ways, safety is sat by the fire/Sanctuary from these feverish smiles, left with a mark on the door.

Though off-topic in that it wasn't Beatles, the greatest use of a song title in a headline was by Angus Roxburgh in The Guardian (UK) on the night the Berlin Wall came down. He'd noticed some graffiti on the (Western side of the) wall, and people going at the wall from above with pick-axes etc. There spray-canned on the wall beneath their feet, as they took to tearing it apart, and used as the front page headline, along with a picture, was "A Rush and a Push and the Land is Ours". They were taking it from the full phrase on the Wall, "A rush and a push and the land is ours. It has been before and it shall be again," not even realising it was a song quote from The Smiths, with that first line, and their headline, being its title. Never has there been a more apt and accidental use of a song title in a headline ever. Now back to The Beatles...

Hi -not sure if this response will get through to mja6758 , but the above smiths quote was written on the wall by myself and 2 mates in the summer of 1988 during a trip to berlin...I was just randomly searching Berlin Wall graffiti photos on line tonight and whilst searching I came across this thread. I still have the photo of us writing on the wall and signing it , and luckily my mate got a copy of the paper that run the headline. It still makes us smile today when we see the article !

WAY COOL!!!! Is the picture of you and your mates on the web somewhere? If not, is there any hope of you scanning the picture and sharing it with us?

There's an episode of the Powerpuff girls where almost every other sentence was a Beatles reference. It's called "Meet The Beat-Alls"
