Well my two person band (it's just a little songwriting thing so far, I wouldn't exactly call it a band) is called The Fools. After The Fool On The Hill of course, and also Fool in the Rain by Led Zeppelin. We're both huge Beatles fans and he's a big Zep fan so it fits. plus it's awesome!

It's also kind of named after the Dutch band and artist group The Fool that designed artwork for the Sgt. Pepper album and the Apple Boutique and such. Though I've never heard their music.

but yes! that is my band–er–music thingy.

Norwegian Wood by Haruki Murakami is named after the Beatles song, and it seems the song is mentioned several times in the story. I want to read the book

I read it (Because I heard it was a good book, and yes, because of the title) and I wasn't that impressed with it. There's an event at the end that, to me, came way out of left field, and seemed really REALLY unneccessary to the storyline as a whole.

Yeah, go buy it now! I deeply recommend it and any other novel by Murakami, specially "Kafka on the shore", "Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World" and "The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle" (the last one is my favourite).
I'd like to say "thank you" on behalf of the group and ourselves and I hope we passed the audition. John Lennon

Wow... Kafka and a John Woo reference. I'm getting it in my next shopping spree. Thanks Marcelo!

Mhh ok thanks SW. I'll keep my expectations low with this one.

There's a Pepper Lane near where I live. I'm fairly sure it isn't named that because of the Beatles, but I have spent ages humming "Penny Lane" whenever I walk down it. I only made the Sgt. Pepper connection last weeka-hard-days-night-paul-4

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.
