What is the plot of the Magical Mystery Tour film?  

 

The Beatles decide to give up on music and open a shoe store. Various notable acquaintances, including George Martin, Bob Dylan, Princess Margaret, Frank Sinatra and Muhammad Ali all take turns donning disguises and pretending to be ever-crazier customers, hoping to discourage them from their new career and drive them back into the music game. Hilarity ensues.

 

What happened on the Apple rooftop on January 30, 1969?

Why did the Beatles change the band’s name on the music released by Tony Sheridan?   

"Beatle" sounded too much like the German word for penis, you wienie....

Sorry SaxonMothersSon but this is the Beatles Trivia Even Easier thread, which means you give the wrong answer like this:

Because Cliff Richards, their potato salad player at the time, recommended it due to Tony being a triangle player and Cliff hated triangles.

George Harrison , Jim Morrison, and Davy Jones decided to drop plates onto random passerby heads.

Which Beatle had a cameo in A Clockwork Orange?

He found Alvin, Simon, Theodore, and some asshat to autotune their voices, raise the pitch by messing around with the speed of the tape, and make the records sound nice. george-martin

Read the beginnings of the thread. It evolved naturally into what it is now after being given a kick by me but there is no compulsory manner in answering and if someone wants to answer correctly (for whatever reason) let them. 

sir walter raleigh said

'Your Mother Should Know '. Someone asked Da Vinci what the hell one of his pictures was meant to be and in a pissed off sarky tone he snapped "Your mother should know". This is thought to be the origin of "Yo mama" but some historians think it may be older by at least 8 days (hence '8 Days A Week'). 

 

What announcement did Ringo make live on tv on the 3rd Sunday of May in 1964? What was the reaction from the press?

It doesn't necessarily have to be funny. "Even easier" is supposed to ironically say that all answers are correct. Humor is preferable.

They realized Ringo was Pete Best in disguise and that he "baby" was actually a drum he had eaten and then they found Ringo, bound and shackled in another room and refired Pete.

Why did Paul frame Phil Spector for murder?

Because he had been forced to listen to Be My Baby on a loop.

Because he learned that Inland Revenue would be taxing his songwriting royalties by the syllable, so the much-shortened refrain was an extra way of sticking it to the tax collector. 

 

Why was "Revolution 9 " not released as a single?

Because Apple knew that people were going to listen to it and throw it out the window. 

Who has the world record for the most copies of the White Album thrown out their window because Revolution 9 was on it?
