@meanmistermustard Thanks!

My favorite radio station used to play an instrumental version of "Birthday" during the "Celebrity Birthdays" segment. They don't do it anymore, now that it got sold and they soiled it!!

@midnight, the game show with comedian contestants I mentioned last week, has a game called #hashtagwars.  In honor of Paul's birthday, today's was #badbeatlesongs. Some of the songs they came up with were Norwegian Morning Wood (This Bird Has Grown), Got to Get You Into My Trunk, While My Cleaning Lady Gently Weeps, Good Day Sunshine... I Said Good Day!, Yesterday No Wait... Oh, Yes, It Was Yesterday and Shout and Twist.

So now they're asking the public to tweet @midnight bad Beatle songs with the#badbeatlesongs hastag, and they'll post the best one during tonight's show. The show tapes around 4pm (I went to a taping for my birthday this year), so you probably have a few hours to come up with a good one.

@Zig, it's your time to shine!

Norwegian Morning Wood? I actually remember a Beatles fan who used to say Norwegian Wood as a substitute for "morning wood". But "This Bird Has Grown"? Seriously? Somebody's got an inferiority complex writing a song like that!

@Zig Aw, too bad. I'm sure you could come up with something much more entertaining than some of these.

Yesterday, I was eating dinner in a bar and grill with my mom.  Suddenly, Hi Hi Hi started playing.  I said to her "I'll bet that they're playing this because it's Paul's birthday."

Pretty cool - that's a song you don't normally hear in a public setting. It's usually something more popular.

I found this precursor of beatlemania on a list of flamboyant piano players...

Franz Liszt
October 22, 1811–July 31, 1886
Handsome, dramatic, and Hungarian, with the requisite wild hair, Liszt totally tore up Victorian music salons. Considered the first virtuoso piano soloist, he inspired Beatlemania levels of hysteria. In fact, there was a phenomenon known as “Lisztomania.” Said concert pianist Stephen Hough, “We hear about women throwing their clothes onto the stage and taking his cigar butts and placing them in their cleavage.”

And we thought deafening screams were bad...

These were the finalists for @midnight's hashtag wars. The Sgt. Leper one is the one that aired on the show. I like the keytar one myself.

Yep, the hair plays a part in the whole drama, along with the musical talent, of course.

This mildly disturbing image made me laugh out loud. Now I can't unsee it. Thanks for posting this, Matt.

When I saw Matt's sentence the first time around, I admit I thought the sentence was going to end differently (ah, um, a different place on a woman's body...think Fifty Shades thread material).

I'm watching Bridget Jones, and at one point Darcy says he doesn't want his kid to be educated at a public school where they sing Yellow Submarine.

I'd quite like a school like that tbh.

I was in Walmart this evening and heard a cheesy instrumental version of Here Comes The Sun playing.

Can you guess where the music was coming from before revealing the spoiler?

Yeah, that cd display thingy where they put the themed cds and you can play a clip or two from them.

I was about 3 aisles away when I heard it.

In case anyone is wondering if I've finally lost my mind, I thought I'd explain why I thought what I thought when I read that sentence. The sentence reminded me of the Clinton-Lewinsky scandal which involved a cigar and...well I'll leave it up to you to look it up if you don't recall the story.
