Trick question. All of "Across The Universe "'s vocals were in the foreground. 

 

Where was the vast majority of The Beatles' music recorded?

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!"
-- Paul McCartney

Somewhere In England

Which three canon Beatles tracks were recorded outside of England, and where were they recorded? 

In actual point of fact, Can't Buy Me Love , Komm, gib mir deine Hand, and Sie liebt dich were recorded in Paris.

They were looking for Santa Claus. It was only after they had been there for hours that they realized that Santa lives at the North Pole.

 

Magic Alex died recently. Who was Magic Alex and what was his significance to the Beatles?

Alexander Magicrakov was a Russian session drummer who filled in for Andy White on 'Love Me Do '. That is, if you believe the AWID conspiracy theorists. 

Which Beatle infamously told a reporter "we are less popular than sliced peaches" and why did he say it?

St. Nicolas KClaus Voormann(better known as Santa Voormann) is a jolly old man, normally depicted dressed in red giving presents to children on Beatmas Eve. He was born and raised in Germany, and traveled to the north pole to live in the frigid climate as a young adult. He was a large part in helping the Beatles write some of the worlds greatest Beatmas songs such as "Beatle Bells" , "Ringo the Big Nosed Drummer", and "Paul McCartney 's Coming to Town" as well as many more.

It is rumored that Carnival Of Light is not going to be released any time soon because it contains a huge Paul is Dead clue. What does this clue entail, and why is it being withheld from the public after almost 50 years.

Several of them, including John Cleese, Raquel Welch and Spike Milligan. Also Pete Best, although he wasn't seen onscreen as he was at least 400km out of camera range.

Can money be exchanged for Beatles records?

Jane Asher arrived in the UK for a three month holiday. No one new who she was, as she'd been living her entire life in Tajikistan.

John Lennon was a quarry man. Richard Starr was his supervisor.

According to the song I'm Looking Through You , when does love have a nasty habit of disappearing?

'Enough to fill Alberta's closet.' Alberta was a fashion-forward young woman with whom John was involved in 1965. 

 

Which Beatle later went on to form Punk Floyd with his wife (he sang, she didn't) and why? Name one of their songs.

Paul and Linda. He still made her sing though. A classic Punk Floyd hit was Cheese and it's all about goats for some reason, it went:

Goats woo oo oo woo oo oo woo oo oo

Paul. As Necko explained a while back, He was arrested for smuggling hugs in Japan, but he also had some vegetables and a ten bob note up his nose, which was discovered during interrogation. He later escaped the Japanese prison by throwing a leek at the guard, which had been given to him a fellow inmate. This story became the basis for his award winning autobiographical epic Give My Regards To Broad Street .

 

Which Wings song was used in a James Bond film of the same name, which was based on a book of the same name?
