You look like a lepper dressed as Sgt. Pepper

Epic Band Pink Floyd did really made a reference to Their Awesomeness The Beatles in "Let There Be More Light" from their second album (the first that count in my book) "A Saucerful of Secrets":

 

The outer lock rolled slowly back

The servicemen were heard to sigh

For there revealed in flowing robes

Was Lucy in the sky

 

And yes, I hate "The Piper at the Gates of Dawn".

aww don't hate TPATGOD paul-mccartney I haven't heard much from it but I just adore Syd and early Floyd and excuse me while I roll about because of the Beatles being referenced in an early Floyd sooong. heart

Someone's already mentioned American Pie, but there's still more.

Besides "Helter skelter in a summer swelter" 

There's also "While Lennon read a book on Marx". Although Lennon is  often replaced by Lenin. 

I don't know, but the quartet is supposedly The Beatles... "While the quartet practised in the park".

Step on the gas and wipe that tear away.

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.

Kasabian's La Fee Verte: Lyrics including "I see Lucy in the sky, telling me I'm high" and "Nothing is real" as well as the song just being a massive plagiarism of The Beatles musically. Basically, don't listen to it. Or any song off of their new album, for that matter.

I did think that when I heard it, possibly a Dylan quote in there too?

Edit: The line is "how does it feel to live a life where nothing is real?", and there's also a line about "sound and vision", which seems to be a Bowie reference.

I quite liked the song, thought the album was decent but not as good as the band hyped it to be (they were calling it their Revolver).

And I neeeeeeeeed her all the time

From Elton John's "All The Girls Love Alice".

But what do you expect from a chick who's just sixteen
And hey, hey, hey, you know what I mean

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.

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.

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

See a lot of Oasis mentions... Liam's new band Beady Eye has a tune as well

Beatles And Stones lyrics

Well it beats me mama, I just want to rock and roll
Well it beats me mama, I just want to rock and roll
I?m gonna stand the test of time
Like Beatles and Stones

Well it freaks them mama
I?m not doin? what I?m told
Well it freaks them mama
You know I can?t be bought and sold
I?m gonna stand the test of time
Like Beatles and Stones

I?m on my way home, just get back to what?s mine
And when I get home, well I?ll be alright

Well it beats me mama, I just want to rock and roll
I?m gonna stand the test of time
Like Beatles and Stones

I?m on my way home, just get back to what?s mine
And when I get home, well I?ll be alright

What?s that you say?
Get out the Way!

Simon and Garfunkel have a song called "A Simple Desultory Philippic (Or How I Was Robert Macnamared into Submission)   Great Title....  anyways it has the lyric 'I've been Rolling Stoned and Beatled till I'm Blind"

 

The song Glycerine by Bush mentions Strawberry Fields in the song.
