high-heel shoes and low-neck sweater – Get Back

Mean Mr Mustard is saving up to buy some clothes. What? Does he go to see the queen naked?

This may be an unusual one, but it’s an item of clothing in a Beatles song:

polythene bag – Polythene Pam .

Are all these clothes being given to charity?

Dresses in black – too vague? – ‘Baby’s In Black

Not sure what clothes Honey wears, but Ringo likes the way she wears them – ‘Honey Don’t

Knitting swears? I must try that. Does one use intarsia, or embroider the words on after? a-hard-days-night-george-10

Dressing gown – She’s Leaving Home

If Mean Mr Mustard had to rely on only these clothes (ones mentioned in Beatles songs) that he got from a charity group, he would be one oddly-dressed character.

Just an observation from listening to one of The Beatles BBC albums this morning:

Nothin’ Shakin’
The Hippy Hippy Shake

are back to back.

What other Beatles songs mention the word shake?

Is ‘The Hippy Hippy Shake’ from Live At The BBC  too spot on?

If you branch out into bootlegs and non-canon songs, there are two during the Get Back sessions. 

A brief cover of Jerry Lee Lewis’ “Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On”

 

A short Lennon improvisation called “Shakin’ In The Sixties.”
