You look like a lepper dressed as Sgt. Pepper

Dan Fogelberg did a cover of the 1962 song by the Cascades "Rhythm of the Rain" and at the very end he sings a lyric from "Rain"

"when the rain comes, they run and hide their heads, they might as well be dead, when the rain comes"

On the video below start at 3:43 this is a point where you can hear the end of the jazzy version of the song so you can get a flavor of how well he blends the "Rain" lyric into the ending. His voice even changes to the psychedelic sounding John Lennon version.




On albums and interviews he cited the Beatles as one of his sources of inspiration.

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

Actually, that entire song is in reference to the music scene, including Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, The Stones, Bob Dylan, etc etc. There's a lot of speculation to some of the metaphors, but the Beatles ones include the one you mentioned, and they also include "Now at half time there was sweet perfume as the Sargeants played a marching tune"  which talks about the awesomeness of Sgt. Pepper's of course, and "the marching band refused to yield" which sort of meant that they wouldn't give up the fight; the Beatles were just too big for anyone to push over.

That's in addition to the ones that 909 posted.


Another one is Gimme Sympathy by Metric "Who'd you rather be, the Beatles or the Rolling Stones? Oh, seriously? You're gonna make mistakes you know. Come on, baby, play me something like Here Comes The Sun"

That was most of the chorus.

"And my brother's back at home
With his Beatles and his Stones
We never got it off on that
Revolution stuff"

All The Young Dudes performed Mott The Hopple written by David Bowie.

Well we all shine on like the moon, the stars, and the sun.

A huge portion of (What's the Story) Morning Glory? by Oasis is Beatles infused, especially in the title track. If you listen very closely, behind the water sounds and helicopter blades whirring, you'll hear a tape loop of the backup guitar effects from "Yer Blues." I didn't believe my ears, at first, but it's totally there. Also, one of the lines of the chorus is: "Another sunny afternoon, Walkin' to the sound of my favorite tune, Tomorrow Never Knows what it doesn't know too soon." Happy listening! apple01
