Amusing video clip, SB. paul-mccartney-thumb_gif

For the picture puzzle, I need to give this one some more thought. Hopefully other people will join in too. Maybe Ahhh Girl, particularly as it’s a Paul song?

 

Here’s a clue to another Paul song lyric. a-hard-days-night-paul-5

No:
Helen Wheels

Hint:
The song is a 70s release.

C Moon

The “L7” in the lyrics denotes a square, and the discs are arranged in a square layout. “C Moon” denotes a circle, and this is repeated in the lyrics, so… four discs = four circles.

And in the end

The love you take is equal to the love you make

The McCartney song title has nothing to do with the image clue.

There are no song titles on the discs, so it could be a lyric like: “I know the singers but not the songs”? Still thinking about this one, SB.

Maybe somebody else will come in with the appropriate answer?

I think the title of the song on each disc is: I’m A Man

There’s the I’m A Man song written by Steve Winwood and Jimmy Miller, which was recorded separately by the Spencer Davis Group and Chicago. Then there’s a song of the same name written by Bo Diddley (a.k.a. Ellas McDaniel), which was recorded separately by Bo Diddley and the Yardbirds.

So which Paul McCartney song fits the clues:
* I’m A Man
* A 70s release
* The song title has nothing to do with the image clue

I’ll choose my favourite Paul solo song, Maybe I’m Amazed

“Baby, I’m a man / And maybe you’re the only woman who could ever help me”

And in the end

The love you take is equal to the love you make

Awesome @Richard, that is my tune. I had an unusual experience with Maybe I’m Amazed . I’ll post in the Concerts Gone Wrong series a-hard-days-night-ringo-14.

I’ll put my thinking cap on for your next image. a-hard-days-night-ringo-13

Thanks, SB. I think that was a wonderful puzzle – great idea! paul-mccartney-thumb_gif  I decided to find out more about Bo Diddley; then everything gradually fell into place.

I look forward to reading your unusual experience about Maybe I’m Amazed .

Here’s the next picture:

Fab detective work Rich! I dug that first Chicago Transit Authority album. For a young man learning about love, the lyric “Only the beginning of what I want to feel forever” was perfection.

My first thought on your lifestyle clue is John’s willingness to interact with fans. In this case, one Curt Claudio who was convinced “Carry That Weight ” was written as a direct message to him. He travelled to Tittenhurst from California to “look John in the eyes” and complete the secret communication. After camping in their garden for a while John and Yoko invited him in for a chat, which was recorded for the Imagine movie.

I’ll find the Chicago Transit Authority album – I think I listened to it some time ago, and I’m keen to hear it again. john-lennon-salute_gif

Well-remembered about the Carry That Weight link with Curt.  The intended answer is simpler, and it’s about a fairly brief aspect of John and Yoko’s lifestyle.

No:
Curt Claudio

Curt was a straight “A” student in high school, and he died in 1981 (the year after John’s death) due to a plane accident.

I reread the clue and realized this is a satirical piece (funny too)ahdn_ringo_09. Perhaps akin to the Bagism movement that John and Yoko took part in for a bit.

Yes, that’s right, @sigh butterfly.john-lennon-salute_gif

Bagism – I think it was quite a short phase in John and Yoko’s lives. I wonder if anyone else got involved in doing it?

Thanks Rich. I seem to remember Yoko suing someone over the use of the term Bagism (but not sure).

Here’s another George tune…a-hard-days-night-george-4

Brainwashed

Oddly enough, I was searching for an image to match with Brainwashed when I came upon this one. If you didn’t read I Me Mine this might be a bit obscure.
