Jürgen-a Lose That Girl. The Beatles wrote the song because they didn't like his girlfriend at the time. 

 

What did she do that made the Beatles dislike her?

She was screaming at the very sight of Pete Best, made the others jealous. She was screaming at him to keep the beat, admittedly, but it gave Pete false delusions of talent.

 

What shop did Polythene Pam work in?

George again. He wanted to prove to Ringo that he was ambidextrous too, so he went up on stage and played left handed.

What was the photograph of in the song Photograph that Ringo was singing about?

She was sulking because she heard a rumour that John was going to write a song about the Maharishi and she wanted him to do one about her as well, which is how "Polythene Pru" came about. (Also she was obsessed with playing Minecraft.)

If the Beatles "ain't got nothing but love, babe" eight days out of a 10-day week, what do they have on the other two days? (Also, what are the names of these obscure extra days, i.e. the ones aside from Monday thru Sitarday?)

They have breakfast, lunch, dinner, and loads of fun on Onesday and Twosday.

In the song I'm Looking Through You, what is Paul looking through? What is George looking through? Are they looking through the same thing? If not, what is each looking through? Show your work.

He's looking through people who think that John played acoustic guitar on that song because he's only able to see people who know that he played acoustic guitar on I'm Looking Through You.

What Beatle invented the 13th day of the week and what's it called.

Mal Evans. He needed 13 days a week to meet the needs of his colleagues. The day was called "I need 13 days a week or i rather die, gee..."

How many times was Mal fired and readmitted as The Bitless assitant?

Around 9 times, although most of those times he was only fired jokingly because they got annoyed at him calling them The Bitless a-hard-days-night-john-7

Why did John call Sir Walter Raleigh a 'stupid get'?

He thought that John looked like Bob The Builder.

Why?

They both wore trousers, as well as shoes. Also their uvulas were identical.

How was the backwards vocal effect in "Rain" achieved?

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!"

John recorded the vocals while travelling back in time.

Why didn't he take the more convenient route of just putting the tape in backwards?
