This one looks like the song that got me hooked on Paul and the Beatles.

I'm kind of reluctant to add (m)any more smileys. I'd really only rather do it if we needed to convey any new emotions or actions, which is why I added the McCartney shrug (which involved a little bit of Photoshopping, incidentally, because in the original pic he only had one hand raised). It feels like we already have enough.

mccartney-shrug_01_gif

The aim isn't to represent all people from the Beatles' history, though I'll grant you that's the only reason people like Mal, Neil and George M are there.

If there are any emotions, gestures, actions etc you really think should be represented, post them here (preferably with a suggested pic). I can't guarantee they'll get added, but I will take a look.

I'm all for the second one, that one could have many uses.

Recently, I was thinking it would be cool to have a Derek Taylor smiley. Thanks for the paul-mccartney-thumb_gif @Father McKenzie !

Here is where I need The Forum's help. For a smiley to be considered, it needs to meet certain criteria. Obviously it must come from a clean picture than can easily be cropped. More importantly, it must express a feeling, an emotion or a trait.  

If you are one the more creative among us, hear is @Joe 's article on Taylor. Think about what he could represent smiley-wise and see if you can find a picture online that expresses it. At the very least, you'll learn more about the man and anyone else listed in the 'People' section of The Beatles Bible.

Have fun smiley hunting... a-hard-days-night-john-3

What about this photo :

Image result for Derek Taylor

With a photoshopped thought bubble coming out of his head to stand for being deep in thought?

All of the good ideas I've had for smileys, there aren't photos of him that fit my ideas. So this my best feasible idea.

@Zig: you're welcome mate. There's a real lack of decent Taylor pics on Google images it seems,which is frustrating (my predictive text function keeps adding letters to the words I type at the moment, completely changing the word paul-mccartneypaul-mccartneypaul-mccartney). I'm sure we can find some good ones though paul-mccartney-thumb_gif

@The Hole Got Fixed -I love the idea and it fits. @Beatlebug has a point though and a third such smiley may not be warranted. Your picture above could also portray exasperation or the feeling of "What now?".  

@Father McKenzie , I was running into the same problem - trying to find a clean pic. The one Holey found is my favorite so far that I've seen.

Thanks all for the help so far - we will keep digging before we bag the whole idea. I just think he was such a smooth character and could be smiley-worthy.

My point @Beatlebug is that there are so few Derek Taylor on the internet, and fewer that would work as a smiley, is that it will be even harder to find one that portrays a new meaning.

Billy Preston, on the other hand... We need one of those ecstatic photos! The top one, maybe?
