 1.) Which famous French folk song is used for backing vocals in which song?

2.) Which member of the Rolling Stones is actually playing an instrument on an official Beatles record?

3.) Name all Beatles songs where Paul is the main dummer (I think there are 7).

4.) Name all Beatles songs without drums (drum kit). Only "official" songs, no Anthology tracks (I count 14).

 

5.) Which song has a sung bass-line?

6.) Which song has guitars, drums, but no bass at all?

7.) Who is the artist with the most covers by the Beatles?


 


 

So, all questions are solved, apart from Nr. 4! Let's go!

Okay, let me try. Um...

 

She's Leaving Home

Because

Yesterday

I'll Follow The Sun

You've Got To Hide Your Love Away (there's a tambourine, but I don't think any drums)

Within You Without You

The Inner Light

Eleanor Rigby

Love You To

Blackbird

Piggies

I Will (?)

Julia

Revolution 9

Good Night

 

Oh, and technically the Yellow Submarine orchestral pieces, I suppose.

I ended up with 15... Maybe I stuffed up on one of them.

I think I might take a break from answering questions, ahaha, I keep answering them.

The hand on Ringo's shoulder was, I believe, later lent to the Rolling Stones.

She's Leaving Home - correct

Because - correct

Yesterday - correct

I'll Follow The Sun - correct (I didn't have that, so it's 15)

You've Got To Hide Your Love Away (there's a tambourine, but I don't think any drums) - Yeah, there seem to be SOME drums, according to this beautiful website, maybe played with brushes

Within You Without You - correct

The Inner Light - correct

Eleanor Rigby - correct

Love You To - correct

Blackbird - correct

Piggies - correct, one more I overlooked, so we're looking for 16 songs

I Will (?) - correct

Julia - correct

Revolution 9 - correct (ok, I didn't count that one as a SONG, but fine, it's 17 now)

Good Night - correct

 

Oh, and technically the Yellow Submarine orchestral pieces, I suppose. - I didn't count those

 

 


 

Well done!

Since you found some I didn't have there are still 3 songs (or more??) without a drum kit missing!

No, of course not.  It's Thing's less famous cousin ... Fiendish Thing.

Ba dum bum.

Too bad it isn't blue, it could have been Glove.

Edit: Never mind, that would be creepy. Could you imagine Glove on his shoulder before YS came out?

Okay...are they 

 

"Her Majesty",

"Across The Universe",

and

"The Fool On The Hill"?

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!"

"Her Majesty" is correct!

The other two have not much, but SOME drums.

 

One more hint: They're both pre-Peppers again.

Damn, I was gonna put Her Majesty, but I wasn't sure if that note at the start was considered Her Majesty or The End.

 

And I Love Her

A Taste Of Honey has a hi-hat I think, but I dunno

P.S. I Love You is the only one I can think of.

A Taste Of Honey has drums.

Although Her Majesty wasn't recorded with drums, on Abbey Road, which is the only released version, it starts with the last chord from Mean Mr. Mustard, which contains drums. Don't know if I'd count that one.

Ha, I thought about that one chord but didn't figure it counted! (Considered it part of MMrM.)  As for the remaining ones, I can think of 4 or 5 possibles (two on "Rubber Soul") but I'm not sure if they're completely drumless or just mostly; so I'll give up.

 

At the other end of the scale: Which recordings have 2 or more separate drum tracks? (There's at least 4 I know of.)

I haver no problem with Her Majesty, since that chord at the beginning clearly doesn't belong to this song.

 

And I Love Her is correct!

 

Just one more missing (as far as I know)!   One more hint: It's NOT a Lennon-McCartney song.

Wow, PS I Love You is even one more drumless-song I overlooked! Well done!

 

Still one remaining.

Oooh.  I disagree.  I can clearly hear drums on 'P.S. I Love You.'  Or are we using a very narrow interpretation of "drums"?

According to the beautiful Beatles bible that's all some kind of percussion, not a drum kit. I'm sure there's no bass-drum.

But I also used to think it was drums, so I didn't count it in the first place.

I'm sure last time I checked it said drums. Oh, well, you're right.

Well, I guess if we're using "drums" to mean "drum kit," then I'm guessing the last tune is "Within You, Without You."  That has percussion, to be sure, but no drum kit.

WYWY is totally correct - but has already been mentioned! Sorry!

 

Ok, one more hint: It's a cover song, pre-Beatles For Sale.
