I dunno if this counts, but some parts of "history" by The Verve sounds like Mind Games. a-hard-days-night-paul-1

Sorry if these were already said, but In Living In The Material World by George Harrison it's got their names in it!

Met them all here in the material world

John and Paul here in the material world

and though we started out quite poor

we got Ritchie on a tour

and i'm pretty sure that Ritchie means Ritchie, like Ringo, only it's a double meaning too, I think!

The Seeker by The Who also mentions The Beatles

As does We Didn't Start The Fire by Billy Joel, becuase it's says Beatlemania and then so

Admittedly, I don't listen to this song often. So imagine my surprise when I hear, while listening to Ringo's Devil Woman, the line "Sexy Sadie, you look like the devil to me". I often skip the song, but I was too lazy to change it this time. And as for the song, I have a new found appreciation of the song. Now, this may have already been mentioned (possibly by myself), but you also have John's vitriolic attack of Paul, How Do You Sleep?, featuring the famous line about Yesterday. And, I've mentioned it before, but London Calling, the Clash song, has the famous (or infamous) line, "Phoney Beatlemania has bitten the dust".

As if it matters how a man falls down.'

The Manic Street Preacher's Motown Junk- "I laughed when Lennon got shot, 21 years of living and nothing means anything to me".

I take the line "I don't want much, it will be deafening when I do" in the Kaiser Chiefs' Little Shocks to be a reference to I Want You (She's So Heavy).

There's the obvious "I read the news today, oh boy" in David Bowie's Young Americans, and Queen's All God's People has a fantastic moment where Mercury sings "then I, then I, then I, then I went into a dreeeaaaam", which I can't help feeling is a reference to A Day In The Life (certainly sounds like one). That line always gives me goosebumps.

And, of course, Oasis.

And I neeeeeeeeed her all the time

Definitely had to just play All The Young Dudes thanks to Cranberry Sauce, what a song!
Yeah Oasis have a million. "So I'll start a Revolution from my bed" in Don't Look Back In Anger is one that springs to mind.
Tim Minchin's comedy song Rock n Roll Nerd says "He's more into Beatles than the Stones."
Dans Le Sac Vs Scroobius Pip have a song called Thou Shalt Always Kill, the lyrics of which are essentially a list of new commandments. One is "Thou shalt not put recording artists on ridiculous pedestals no matter how great they are or were. The Beatles were just a band…"
I can't think of any more than haven't already been mentioned.
"Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans."
