I love this, and will never get tired of it. Taken from the interview that mmm mentioned above:

Q: "I'd like to direct this question to messrs. Lennon and McCartney. In a recent article, 'Time' magazine put down Pop music. And they referred to 'Day Tripper' as being about a prostitute..."

PAUL: (nodding jokingly) "Oh yeah."

Q: "...and 'Norwegian Wood' as being about a lesbian."

PAUL: (nodding) "Oh yeah."

Q: "I just wanted to know what your intent was when you wrote it, and what your feeling is about the 'Time' magazine criticizm of the music that is being written today."

PAUL: "We were just trying to write songs about prostitutes and lesbians, that's all."

- - -

Q: "May I ask about the song 'Eleanor Rigby?' What was the motivation or inspiration for that?"

JOHN: "Two queers."

Moving along in our God given ways, safety is sat by the fire/Sanctuary from these feverish smiles, left with a mark on the door.

Here are some stupid questions:

Q: "Ringo, would you show us your grey hair?"

RINGO: "No."

~~~

Q: "Have you ever measured your hair to see whose is the longest?"

BEATLES: "No!"

GEORGE: "I think mine is anyway, 'cuz it grows faster than the others."

JOHN: "I'm usually a close second."

~~~

Q: "Paul, I saw a picture of your father and I notice that he has thinning hair."

PAUL: "Mmm-hmm."

RINGO: "But he's 65, what do you expect!"

(laughter)

Q: "When your hair starts thinning, what will you do?"

PAUL: (laughs) "Let it thin, you know."

GEORGE: "Grow a beard."

~~~

Q: "I'd like to ask you all a personal question about your hair. How can you sleep at night with it that long?"

JOHN: "Well, when you're asleep you don't notice."

(laughter)

PAUL: "True, true. Ha! That told him."

GEORGE: "How Do You Sleep? with your arms and your legs still attached? It's the same."

RINGO: "You get used to it."

GEORGE: "Maybe that's why we've been up every night."

PAUL: "Yeah, maybe THAT'S why we have parties. That's it. We can't sleep with this long hair."

(chuckles from reporters)

PAUL: "Great!"

 JOHN: "People have only had short hair since the world war. So they've been sleeping for all those thousands of years with long hair."

PAUL: "It's not a problem, I tell ya. It's just as much a problem as having short hair, which to you seems like normal."

JOHN: "It's more of a problem having short hair, having to keep it short."

~~~

What is it with reporters and The Beatles' hair?!

Geometry, wisdom, tangerines... "The time is gone, the song is over, thought I'd something more to say..."

Also known as Egg-Rock, Egg-Roll, E-George, Eggy, Ravioli, Eggroll Eggrolli...

Purple stuff... ellipses...
