I was listening to Paul McCartney's song "Simple as That" and looked up its history. It was written for an anti-heroin campaign. There are mentions of it here and here on the forum. The information I see is that it was in 1986 instead of 1983.

Just a snippet of "Simple as That" even though it doesn't mention the Beatles.

I know it isn't easy to refuse

A lot of butterflies in your head

Tell me this before you have to choose

Would you rather be alive or dead

It's as simple as that

Would you rather be alive or dead

It's as simple as that

And if you love your life

Everybody will love you too

I looked at more songs from that project. Ringo is on there too with this gem. It is more spoken than sung, but, hey, that's o.k.

Hello, Ringo here.

It's a long time since we had the Beatles,

It's a long time since we had yellow submarines,

Though I suppose we still have got plenty of blue meanies,

In fact, I think we've probably got more of those now than ever before.

Yes, time passes so quickly but too quickly for some.

You know what I'm talking about, it's the heroin problem,

And it's a rapidly growing problem too, especially amongst today's kids.

In the sixties and the seventies we had psychedelic drugs,

Flower power and caftans and people wanting to be beautiful,

But that was then. today some kids just want to escape all together from life.

Don't you believe in God?

What's the use of living if you can't take dying?

But what's the use of dying if you've never lived?

Let's show today's kids that there is something better

And let us all make it better all the time.

So come on, don't be stupid. if you put a hole in your arm

You must have a hole in your head!

Summer Rain (1968) by Johnny Rivers:

"All summer long, we spent dancin' in the sand
And the jukebox kept on playin'
Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band"

I know when it's a dream.

I Dig Rock And Roll Music (1967) by Peter, Paul and Mary:

"And when the Beatles tell you

They've got a word 'love' to sell you

They mean exactly what they say"

I know when it's a dream.

Frank Mills (1967) by Rado, Ragni and MacDermot:

 

I met a boy called Frank Mills
On September twelfth right here
In front of the Waverly
But unfortunately
I lost his address

He was last seen with his friend,
A drummer, he resembles
George Harrison of the Beatles
But he wears his hair
Tied in a small bow at the back

I know when it's a dream.
