Baby It's You

Baby You're A Rich Man

Baby's In Black

Everybody's Trying To Be My Baby

 

I think that's all. Good job not specifying how many there are, that makes it a bit trickier.

Oh, by the way, this post was made by The Hole Got Fixed!

I'll take the 300 points recording question next, please.

Not once does the diversity seem forced -- the genius of the record is how the vaudevillian "When I'm 64" seems like a logical extension of "Within You Without You" and how it provides a gateway to the chiming guitars of "Lovely Rita. - Stephen T. Erlewine on Sgt Pepper's

@The Hole Got Fixed there is an assortment of covers they did in the early and later years with the word baby, but I wasn't asking for those names. The big one that you missed is Cry Baby Cry

Just to clarify, the category is songs/releases. It covers the content of songs and also asks about releases.

For 900 @Dark Overlord 

How did Paul sign the lyric sheet to Paperback Writer and what does it mean?

@Ron Nasty 

History for 900

Who asked Brian Epstein for My Bonnie in October 1961, changing Beatles history forever?

@Martha 

recording for 300

What was the working title for Tomorrow Never Knows ?

I believe it was 'The Void'.

Raymond Jones, who our wonderful Joe secured just about the only interview with, and is given credit for in the sources for Mark Lewisohn's Tune In.

The title I was looking for was Mark I, however 'The Void' is also considered to be a workint title, although I have read from Mark Lewisohn that this may be untrue. I'm willing to accept this answer however because Ian MacDonald says this in Revolution In The Head. I also said "working title" and not "original title" so technically you gave the answer most specific to the question. 

Perhaps others may be more certain than me as to whether it was ever actually titled 'The Void', but for now you will be awarded 300 points. 

Rob Nasty and Dark Overlord are both correct.

Wow! Seems this Rob Nasty has sneaked and got my points! a-hard-days-night-george-10

I'd accept The Void as the working title for TNK. It may be apocryphal, but is so fully embedded in the history that it's hard to ignore.

I'm not going very well. Recording for 500?

I'll take the 400 points solo question, please.

"We're playing those mind games together. Pushing the barriers planting seeds"

What were the original lyrics?

The basis for Mind Games  was found in two late-1970 demos recorded at Tittenhurst Park on the same day, Make Love, Not War and I Promise, both of which were included on the John's Anthology box set. Make Love, Not War formed the basis for the opening of Mind Games , and its opening lyrics (virtually only lyrics) were:

Make love, not war
I know, you've heard it before

I believe there is a remaining 900 pointer, I'll take that.

If not, I'll have an 800 pointer of your choice.
