This is random, but I hope Ringo appears in an ad for an anti-aging product someday.

I hope he starts using an anti-aging product someday. The older he looks, the older I feel. a-hard-days-night-ringo-14

Bake Off really loves using Beatle songs, in 2017 they had We All Stand Together, this year All Together Now :

 

 

Very cutesy.

I’m going to be very pedantic just because I can. ‘We All Stand Together’ is not a Beatles song. 

I was thinking that they should have went with ‘Cook of the House’ but that might open up a war as are you a cook if you bake?

That’s why I said Beatle not Beatles 😉

Paul will forever be a Beatle.

I feel we could enter into an argument here as it's technically an ex-Beatle song since Paul had left the band.

 

Was he a Beatle if The Beatles were no more? Discuss.

I like to think of it as how former US presidents are still addressed as Mr President, even if they were President 40 years ago.

When the revised versions of Free As A Bird and Real Love were published in 1995 and 1996 was Paul a Beatle or an ex-Beatle at that time? The recordings are labelled "The Beatles" not "Ex-Beatles"; so if it's agreed that Paul was a Beatle (according to the labels) at that time, was he an ex-Beatle between 1970 to 1995, and did he subsequently become an ex-Beatle again after 1996?

It's tricky of course - I think Beatle or ex-Beatle depends to some extent on the context. ahdn_paul_06

Those two tracks were from an official reunion covering the Anthology period so for a short time he became a Beatle again.

Because I was curious and so I'm sure others are as well of the 2017 commercial.  Here it is to save you the google search.

Could be x-posted to Christmas thread  but here's our first Christmas ad with Beatles music (every year there's at least one and the John Lewis ad isn't out yet, so hold onto your paper hats)- a Cadbury's ad! 

 

 

Was a bit surprised to hear that one and had to doo wa ooo along with it, such deep cuts Cadbury's fair play. Said to my mam, "you wouldn't guess that's a Beatles song, would you?", and she agreed.

 

Anyhoo, nice little ditty, bit of a revival for Do You Want To Know A Secret and I'm sure Apple is happy as well.

 

Update: I am mistaken, John Lewis came out today, no Beatle tunes, tragic.
