If someone starts a new thread and you think we may have thread on the topic already, make a post in this thread and the mods will look into it.

If we think of more uses for this thread over time, we can add more notes in this post.

Thanks for thread for title, @ewe2.

Of course, if someone would like to inquire before beginning a new thread, they can ask in the Thread Search Thread.

I'm happy that it exists but cant the premise of this thread not be rolled into the 'Thread Search Thread' and make it a catch all?

I think they could be combined. Don't let ewe2's lovely title go to waste, though... perhaps you could compromise?

Ohhh, I just realised the delicious irony of it all. A thread devoted to thread merging/existing threads to keep things tidy in the other threads gets derailed by those very discussions. a-hard-days-night-john-2

I'm a little confused (nothing new), but I always thought the lyrics were: Mother Superior drop the Gun ? a-hard-days-night-paul-7

Actually the word is "jump", but the past tense worked here.

Joe's page on the song.

The double-speed 'Mother Superior jump the gun' section, meanwhile, was inspired by his infatuation with Yoko Ono. Mother Superior was a name he used for her, and 'jump the gun' could be interpreted as a sexual metaphor.

"On, well, by then I'm into double meanings. The initial inspiration was from the magazine cover. But that was the beginning of my relationship with Yoko and I was very sexually oriented then. When we weren't in the studio, we were in bed."

Or I'll send in Mother Superior, so I will (I keep her in a box out of the rain).

I'm like Necko only I'm a bassist ukulele guitar synthesizer kazoo penguin and also everyone. Or is everyone me? Now I'm a confused bassist ukulele guitar synthesizer kazoo penguin everyone who is definitely not @Joe.  This has been true for 2016 & 2017 Sig-Badge.png but I may have to get more specific in the future.

Is there a Reggae thread here? I was looking at the Rap thread the other day, and I was thinking that perhaps a Reggae thread could be opened, too, if it ain't already there, for the reggae fans, of which I am one, and I know that John & Paul liked Reggae music too.

Or is there a thread where this could be discussed? Instead of just opening a separate thread...??

How do we make sure that people got the right lyric in the Song Lyric Game? Since if you look at a lyric sheet, that is cheating at the game.

But wouldn't that also be cheating the same as looking at a sheet.

I shouldn't really be saying it, but I thought one of the good outcomes of that game was supposed to be to listen to songs that you haven't before, or for a long time so that you can participate.

But sometimes you can get the lyrics wrong while listening to a song, like I always thought it was "when I think of love as something you" instead of "as something new " in In my life.
