No idea, but he seemed pretty mad at me for it.

Why did McDonalds reject the theme song that John and Yoko wrote for them in '69?

Because the title of the song was Don't Eat At McDonalds and it was about how unhealthy their food is.

How did Jesus respond when he found out that The Beatles were bigger than him?

To answer your double tracked question, it doesn't matter how beautiful you are, all that matters is that you have many beautiful guitars, that's why these men are considered to be the most beautiful men in the world:

Trick question. The song title was developed before the song and was originally called Lovely Rivita. It was originally about Paul eating a Rivita while on LSD and seeing it come to life before him. A simple typo on a list of what songs were to be recorded on one day meant the other three thought it was about a 'meter maid' called Rita. Paul had to change the lyrics at the last minute.

He explained that it'd be an opportunity for the Beatles to have an album with their name on it available in the shops, and they were thrilled by the prospect.

He is fresh out of high school, plays the clarinet, and lives in Las Vegas. His importance? He is one of their biggest fans.

Pig pocket you.

Why don't John, George, or Ringo appear in the Give My Regards To Broad Street video game for the Commodore 64.

It is a little known fact MPL Communications helped develop the Commodore 64. The other three Beatles thought it was best to keep out of the game project because the console it was on was named after Paul's song When I'm Sixty-Four . Had it been named after a song all four contributed to the writing of (e.g. Flying , Dig It ), they would've joined in. Other games on the Commodore 64 include Tetris (with the slogan 'Put It There') Super McCartney Bros (Paul and Mike) and Paul McCartney 's Moonwalker, where Paul tries to get his song rights back from MJ.

He's right there between the moon and the stars, where he's been since 1967.

For "Back In The USSR ", how did the Beatles manage to record a BOAC jet live in the studio?

The real drummer of The Beatles is this guy:

He almost always wore white face makeup around his face, here's a rare picture of him without the makeup:

He arrived late and was surprised to find The Beatles recording a song about a murderer. Some months earlier, Elmo arrived late to a session just before The Beatles started part of their new song. When he arrived, someone in the crowd whispered to him he was late, and he exclaimed "OH! F*CKING HELL!" before having to sing "Naaaaaaah naaah naaah nanananaaah...." for 4 minutes as a punishment.

On what Beatles songs did Elmo arrive to the studio on time?

Why Don't We Do It In The Road, it was funny because Paul was there early and told Elmo to piss off because this was a Paul only song, Paul on vocals, Paul on guitar, Paul on bass, Paul on drums, and Paul on piano.

When did the episode of Sesame Street that involves selfish and greedy musicians that was based off of this session air?
