Same Rules As Easy

First Question: On Paul's song "Rockestra Theme", there was a virtual who's who in the line up. There were four artists invited that did not show up for the recording. Can you name three of them?

John and Paul wrote "Eight Days A Week" together at John's house in Surrey, but who suggested the title?

Was thinking about My Bonnie but nah, so I googled it. I found the answer, and I also found an interesting story about Tony and Paul. Tony thought that Paul was gay because of his eyebrows so he [Tony] plucked them off.

Ok since no one seems to know the answer to the previous question i don't want this game dead in it's first months let's have a new question

What song did John write for May Pang and what song did John have in mind when he started writing it?

"Surprise Surprise (Sweet Bird of Paradox)" was inspired by the Diamonds' "Little Darlin'"

What punk rock group took their name from a Paul pseudonym?

I remember George saying 'Blimey, he's always talking about “Yesterday”, you'd think he was Beethoven or somebody' - Paul McCartney

Funny, I was just thinking about this one yesterday - The Ramones.

What song did George write for Cilla Black that he eventually recorded himself?

Oh, dear, did I choose a way hard one? Should I give a hint? I'd just read the answer in George's book so it was on my mind.

I asked this question, minus the parts, in the "Trivia-Easy" thread. It's Victor Spinetti, who had to be in their films because George's Mum liked him. In A Hard Day's Night he played the television director, in Helphe played Foot, and in Magical Mystery Tour he played the drill sergeant.


Who directed George's video, with all its Beatles references, for When We Was Fab?

Was it Come Together, which copied a line from Chuck Berry's You Can't Catch Me?

Might be too easy, but:

Which Beatles song was inspired by something from Snow White and the Seven Dwarves? What was it that inspired the song?
