A Picture of You
Strawberry Fields Forever 
I've Just Seen A Face 
She Loves You

And Your Bird Can Sing
I'm Happy Just To Dance With You
Tell Me What You See
Baby, You're a Rich Man

You're focusing too much on the memorabilia.

Anyway, 9 wrong, so it's clue time.

The song is a cover version. The picture is more of a clue to the actual song than it is to their version of it. And, oh yeah...

I was a little bit naughty when I realised my initial image made it a bit trickier than I intended because of something the Beatles do in their version, so you might want to give that gif another look. It's purpose may have been twofold. a-hard-days-night-george-10

OK, a cover version certainly narrows it down.  Maybe:

Sweet Little Sixteen

American Bandstand was hosted from 1956 until 1989 by Dick Clark, who is shown in the picture. When Sweet Little Sixteen was recorded by Chuck Berry in 1957, he name-checks this show with his lyric: "Cause they'll be rocking on Bandstand in Philadelphia, PA."

The Beatles' version doesn't specifically include the "Bandstand" lyric; instead John Lennon sings: "Cause they'll be rocking in Boston, Philadelphia, PA."

The picture also fits in well with some of the other lyrics in both Chuck and the Beatles' versions of the song:
"Sweet little sixteen
She's just got to have
About half a million
Framed autographs
Her wallet filled with pictures
She gets them one by one
Becomes so excited
Watch her, look at her run"

Right on all counts, @Richard.

I was looking for something to do with autographs to begin with, and found this Bandstand still, which mentioned autographs a couple of times in the labels, and I thought gave two clues in one, forgetting they dropped the Bandstand and just reused the Boston line.

So, I dropped in the gif as the Bandstand bit didn't quite work; four of the main characters from the sitcom Cheers, set in Boston...

...dad rocking!

Sweet Little Sixteen it is! (I was starting to wonder if that was going all the way!)

Thanks, @Ron Nasty.  It was a great choice of picture!  Yes, the gif helped too.

Here's my picture choice:

No Reply ? 'I Saw The Light' (from the flame). Question: Is the number of candles in the pic significant?

Good idea, but that's not the song I have in mind.  With respect to the question, in the spirit of this game I probably shouldn't say at this stage (before the 9th answer); I guess we should have a few more suggestions first anyway?

I thought this might be fairly easy, but it's all gone quiet now.

The number of candles is not significant, but it is significant that they are white candles, @Father McKenzie.

It could easily be, but it's not the song I'm thinking of.

No guesses for a week, so...

the relevant aspects are: white candles in a candelabra, which is standing on a table.

I hope that helps.

I can only think of one other Beatles song with 'table' or 'candle' mentioned in it, and that's Sexy Sadie ?

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

Sexy Sadie

but I can see that these Sexy Sadie lyrics would fit:

"We gave her everything we owned just to sit at her table
Just a smile would lighten everything"

I can think of two appropriate songs.  I'll try:

Get Back (the Let It Be album version)

"Sweet Loretta Fart thought she was a cleaner
But she was a frying pan, yeah"
