^I made that observation on the forum once upon a time in thread somewhere. Isn't it a cool connection to discover!?!?

Yellow Submarine

So we sailed up to the sun
'Til we found the sea of green

Dress Me Up As A Robber

As long as your love is available to me
What do I do with a sea of blue?

My hot take is that after the Beatles split they went down the paths of spiritualism, solipsism, alcoholism, and Paul McCartney

Yes it is:

For red is the color that will make me blue

 

Baby's In Black :

Baby's In Black and I'm feeling blue

 

Old Brown Shoe :

Now I'm stepping out this Old Brown Shoe

 

The Beatles were very picky when it came to clothing color.

Think For Yourself

You're telling all those lies
About the good things that we can have
If we close our eyes

 

Living is easy with eyes closed
Misunderstanding all you see

Interesting to contrast John's attitude in "Isolation " ("...we're afraid of everyone / Afraid of the sun") with the dozen--or-so Beatles songs that are decidedly pro-sunshine lyrically.

The following people thank vonbontee for this post:

Timothy, Rube

GEORGE: In fact, The Detroit Sound. JOHN: In fact, yes. GEORGE: In fact, yeah. Tamla-Motown artists are our favorites. The Miracles. JOHN: We like Marvin Gaye. GEORGE: The Impressions PAUL & GEORGE: Mary Wells. GEORGE: The Exciters. RINGO: Chuck Jackson. JOHN: To name but eighty.

Well, Rain fits with the Isolation lyric:

When the sun shines
They slip into the shade (when the sun shines down)
And sip their lemonade (when the sun shines down)
When the sun shines
When the sun shines

'She Loves You ' and 'Cage' have a similar theme with the singer intervening and trying to make it right between a couple.

 
You think you've lost your love
Well, I saw her yesterday
It's you she's thinkin' of
And she told me what to say...
 
She said you hurt her so
She almost lost her mind
But now she says she knows
You're not the hurtin' kind...
 
You know it's up to you
I think it's only fair
Pride can hurt you, too
Apologize to her...
 
Cage
 
I've been sent to tell you
That the man you were with last night
Is feeling sorry, sorry
But he told me to tell you
That he hardly ever lies
But he lied to you last night...
 
I've been sent to tell you
That the man you were with last night
Is feeling lonely only for you
He told me to tell you
That he hardly ever cries
But he cried for you last night, ooh

Life Begins at 40, it’s just a state of mind

Rain : It's just a state of mind (when it rains and shines)

 

I Don’t Wanna Face It: You want to save humanity but it’s people that you just can’t stand

Only People: Only people know just how to change the world

Grinning / smiling people on a hill:

The man with the foolish grin is keeping perfectly still

Not going thru all the posts. 
Paul’s Beatle track ‘Got To Get You Into My Life’ and his 90’s number ‘Get Out Of My Way’ which has the line “Get out of my way, get out of my life”.
