I Will ‘ isn’t a solo Beatles song, not that it matters.

The term “solo Beatles song” seems paradoxical:  if it’s a “Beatles song” it’s by definition a song during the time the Beatles were Beatles — whether or not the other Three pitched in with the writing and/or the recording of it (at all or even only marginally).  Perhaps less paradoxical would be “solo Beatle song”.

A ginger sling with a pineapple heart,

a coffee dessert, yes you know it's good news...

I think that’s the proper term, actually. But it’s like capitalising the T in The Beatles… many of us hardly ever bother… ahdn_paul_01

Silly Girl — this subtopic is kind of related to an old topic I created long ago called

“Typing out [Beatles] song names as a show of respect”

https://www.beatlesbible.com/forum/getting-better-song/typing-out-song-names-as-a-show-of-respect/

The following people thank Pineapple Records for this post:
