That's the answer for roughly half of his songs. a-hard-days-night-john-6(I'm kidding, but only because I haven't done an official count. There seems to be a lot.)

Ad hoc, ad loc, and quid pro quo! So little time! So much to know!

Ummm...considering in another post you were talking about being excited for your school's holiday break, I kind of figured that out already. a-hard-days-night-george-10 But thank you for the clarification anyways!

There's also the OPD armband he has on his jacket on Sgt. Pepper -- Officially Pronounced Dead, or if you're boring, Ottawa Police Department.


That's actually O.P.P. : Ontario Provincial Police. (I used to have one of those patches!)

AH! So it is. I was looking at it, and wondering how in the world could they have gotten Officially Pronounced Dead off of something so *clearly* reading OPP, BUT:

Some people misread the patch on the Sgt. Pepper cover, which is easy to do if this is what they saw. I'm also seeing on another site that a radio station was the first to start the rumor as a hoax, and it just spiraled out of control.

I didn't see an answer post - so I believe that the Plastic Ono Band song offered to the Beatles was Look At Me - but I'm going off memory.

 

Other clues to Paul's death - the finger pointing to Wednesday morning at 5 o'clock on the back of Sgt Pepper. The Walrus was Paul line - and then the walrus has a hand over it's head on Magical and Paul has a hand over his hand on Sgt Pepper. The cover of Sgt Pepper is supposed to be a funeral scene. Number 9 on Revolution 9 backwards says Turn Me On Dead Man.

TRIVIA QUESTION - Who claims to have inspired John to the change the word "man" to "van in I Am The Walrus - ie

Sitting on a cornflake, waiting for the van to come. (originally the line was "sitting on a cornflake, waiting for the man to come".) - who inspired the change? And how did it happen?
