Hey, @Bongo! I carn't believe we don't have a COWBELL thread yet. Here we go! The use of a cowbell in Beatles and post-Beatles solo songs.

I'll clang it in with Too Many People (cowbell played by Denny Seiwell).

I saw somewhere that there are 11 Beatles songs with cowbell in them. 

1. You Can't Do That

2. Everybody's Got Something To Hide Except Me And My Monkey  

3. I Call Your Name

4. Drive My Car

5. Taxman

6. A Hard Day's Night

7. Dizzy Miss Lizzie

8. With A Little Help From My Friends

9. I Need You

Apparently I've missed two. Can anyone remember the last two?

Of all those cowbell songs, the one that really benefits from it I'd say is "A Hard Day's Night ".

Now if only they had used timbales once in a while...

Did Ringo play cowbell on all The Beatles songs featuring a cowbell?

No. Off the top of my head, I know John was the one who played it on With A Little Help From My Friends .

I never realized that Too Many People has a cowbell in it -- a good reason (not that I need any) to listen to it for the 2,001st time...

Nobody Told Me (there'd be days like these) by John Lennon has some interesting cowbell work.

I am getting more tuned into cowbell sounds.

I just heard it in Paul's Oo You.
