So is it a good song? It sounds a bit depressing to say the least.

Ad hoc, ad loc, and quid pro quo! So little time! So much to know!

A pretty good song, but a little bit depressing. It repeats "John Lennon died, John Lennon died" a lot for the chorus and ends with gun shots.

I'd like to be, under the sea, in an octopus's garden, with you.

I had the misfortune to hear Bad Company doing Shooting Star recently. The lyrics are awful and it goes on for years.

Weird, I can't think of any reference of the Beatles in rock in Spanish. The only that comes to my mind is He visto a Lucy (I've seen Lucy) by Gustavo Cerati. He says he's talking about Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds. It's a good song.

 

 

I think I've already mentioned this, sorry if I'm repeating myself.

This is not exactly on point but what I always found interesting was how the Beatles could mention themselves in their own songs and it always seemed so natural - like Glass Onion - to just say the Walrus and me - the Walrus was Paul or The Fool On The Hill - just so matter of fact. I think for a lot of bands mentioning themselves that way would seem forced or awkward.

 

Just a thought  -  that they even mentioned themselves in their own songs.

I like how "Lucy In The Sky" shows up in "Walrus", which itself shows up in "Glass Onion"

While listening to an oldies station, the song" Don't Call Us"  by Sugar Loaf came on and I was singing along, of course, and got to the line  It sounds like ah  John, Paul and George.... (almost all of the Beatles)


 And did you ever notice the "I Feel Fine" riff in that song's chorus?

And speaking of riffs, the "Day Tripper" riff appears in both Roxy Music's "Remake/Remodel" and April Wine's "I Like To Rock"

The Rutles?! You mean the Pre-Fab Four? Dirk, Nasty, Stig and Barry? I was actually playing "Piggy In The Middle" not two weeks ago!

I'm as big a Monty Python fanatic as Beatles obsessive, so my Rutles-appreciation is assured. I remember seeing their album in the $3.99 rack in a Woolworths back in the early '80s, with all the parody album covers on the front, and thinking "What the hell is this?"

My brother was just playing loud music (as he always does) and I heard these lyrics:

 

After all this is gone who would you rather be,

The Beatles or The Rolling Stones?

 

then, a few lines after that:

 

Come on baby, play me something,

like Here Comes The Sun

 

The lyrics are from 'Gimme Sympathy' by Metric. It was actually an alright song, not as bad as some of the other stuff he plays

There was another thread, "Any Beatles songs sound exactly alike?", where we were talking about similar melodies. Then the convo got steered towards Oasis, so I thought it appropriate to start a new thread dedicated towards lyrical references and/or similarities to the Beatles.

 

Some that I can name off the top of my head are:

"Sheer Heart Attack" by Queen: "Well you're just seventeen, and you want to disappear/you know what I mean, there's a lot of space between your ears"

 

"Young Americans" by David Bowie: "I read the news today, oh boy"

 

"(What's the Story) Morning Glory?" by Oasis: "Listening to my favorite song, Tomorrow Never Knows"

Because the wind is high, it blows my mind.

American Pie by Don McLean mentions "Helter Skelter" (in the summer swelter)

The Monkees have a song that was called over here "Randy Scouse Git" which mentioned them as The 4 Kings of EMI.

Bad Company did a song called Shooting Star about a boy who gets into music and forms a band because he heard the Beatles (Love Me Do).

 

Hmmm...interesting topic to think about! apple01

DON'T YOU KNOW THAT YOU ARE A SHOOTING STAR
 

*cough*

There's a song called Be My Yoko Ono by Barenaked Ladies.

OH, and just recently, I found out that in Crazy in Love by Beyonce, there's a Beatles reference: "Star like Ringo"

Oh yeah! What is it? "It's no jokey, I want you for my Yokey..." something like that!
