Savoy Truffle mentions Ob La Di Ob La Da, Glass Onion mentions Lady Modonna, Strawberry Fields, and others, Lady Madonnas has See how they run from I Am The Walrus. There are others, but that's all I have the patience I have to type out.

Glass Onion mentions everything. Come Together also throws a Walrus in there, not sure if it's a reference though.

Fittingly, (1+1)+1=3

You all will have read that Dave Dee is no longer with us. But Mickey and Titch and I would like to carry on the good work that's always gone down in number two.

mith - that is a cool chart from a cool site.

The chart that shows their working schedule during the earlier years is fascinating.

The Beatles made many references to their own lives and other songs in later songs. Which is your favorite?

I'll start with the first one I noticed: In Glass Onion are the lines "and here's another clue for you all, the walrus was Paul".

Happy new year!

In All You Need Is Love they briefly sang Yesterday

I Think that Rolling Stone should do a cover story of The Rolling Stones covering "Like a Rolling Stone" or if a Type of Beetle was named after The Beatles.

Glass Onion is full of them!

If I spoke prose you'd all find out, I don't know what I talk about.

Can buy Joe love!

That's fine mmm - although the topic I had in mind is slightly broader, I think it's OK to leave it here... See my example and do what you think is right.  I'm looking for "self" references in lyrics, but not necessarily references to other lyrics.

Anyway, a lot of "obvious" (and some not so obvious) lyrics about other lyrics have been listed, but I'm also looking for overt references to real life things. One would be, in getting better, the verse about treating his woman badly. Another easy one is The Ballad Of John And Yoko.

This is a tricky one as most songs start from a real life something... They may end up having nothing to do with real life when they're finished.

I would include songs that specifically mention real life names,  like Dear Prudence

 And I'd open it up to their solo work, so songs like the Man on the Flaming Pie and Apple Scruffs would qualify. I think Queenie Eye is somewhat autobiographical too, being in the first person means it's about a specific person (the author).

I can't get this to format right, this sentence should be after "Dear Prudence" above: I wouldn't o include songs that don't refer to specifically named things, like something (even though it was written about someone and we all know who, it could have been written by any man in love with any woman). only nobody else could express it so beautifully :)

 I'm running short on time - I just had this almost reworked and hit the wrong key and backed out.  I'll make my idea clearer later.

 

 

songs.

Isn't there a thread somewhere about their references to each other in post-Beatles songs? Early 1970, Too Many People, How Do You Sleep?, When We Was Fab, etc.....
