That one about a songwriter... or something to do with writing or making a song. I forget the name of it though...

Who decided it was a great idea for George Martin to play piano for the Beatles

The one who picked his name out of the hat.

What is the real reason why the Let It Be movie is not being rereleased onto modern formats?

They are not aware of any modern format yet. It'll be a blast when they discover Laser Disc, eh?
What song did Ringo veto from the Anthology 345th volume?

The No No Song.  Actually, he wanted it in there.  But every time he mentioned it, the producers thought he meant No No he didn't want it in there.

None.  At their rate of ideas, lit light bulbs have never been a problem.

If you listen carefully, what can Ringo be heard saying at the end of Hey Jude ?

Harry's son George was not permitted to play guitar on "Hey Jude " because his Rosetti had only three strings and was falling apart.  The input jack was broken and such a cheap guitar was deemed not suitable for recording.

John thought Paul's song "Hey Jude " was secretly about him.  What John-penned Beatles song was secretly about Paul?

When waiting for the next set of "Canon Poll" results, it sometimes feels like there are 3 months in a week - but that is part of the fun! a-hard-days-night-george-9

To whom was John referring when he sang 'How Do You Sleep'?

That number is only revealed when you reach the seventh level. Those of us who know are not allowed to reveal it to anyone who hasn't reached enlightenment. a-hard-days-night-george-4

The Beatles won the Grammy Award for Best Original Score Written for a Motion Picture or Television Special (for Let It Be ) in 1971. Who was at the awards ceremony to accept the award?

Ooops, I didn't know Zig had responded by the time I clicked on Submit.

The next person can show off their knowledge to two questions.

^Your response was better - very clever. apple01

So, to recap - the next player gets to answer 2 questions.

To whom was John referring when he sang 'How Do You Sleep'?

and

The Beatles won the Grammy Award for Best Original Score Written for a Motion Picture or Television Special (for Let It Be) in 1971. Who was at the awards ceremony to accept the award?

Could it be the same person?? a-hard-days-night-ringo-7

Mal Evans was slated to accept the award, but found the Oscar ceremony to be boring and fell asleep in his chair.  When Let It Be won, Paul and Linda could not wake Mal and had to rush up on stage to accept the award.  They just had to give a quick thank you because the speech was still in Mal's pocket.

John later wrote How Do You Sleep for this event cleverly disguising it with snide remarks at Paul.

I'm going to repeat an old question and see if I get a different answer.

Why didn't the Beatles fire their prop man?  His attendance record was poor during Singalong Time and Ringo kept having to cover for him.

Huh? He did pose a question.

The prop man knew how to get "the good stuff".

What was Lovely Rita 's salary as a meter maid?

Trick question. I think you meant celery, not salary. She borrowed Paul's celery from this answer:

I said a page back

Celery. Paul had taught Mal how to play one after Mal had heard him playing that killer celery solo on The Beach Boys' "Vega-Tables".

After Mal had given it up, he gave it back to Paul, who gave it to Rita when he took her out to dinner.

 

Why did Rita eventually give up the celery too, and where is it now?
