Carnival of Night. George vetoed the song because everyone had gone home and was asleep when it was recorded, and also because it sounded too much like John Cage's 4'33. 

What happened Some Time In New York City for John Lennon to have called the album that?

During a break from recording the album with Yoko and Mammoth's Recollection, John popped off to Patek Philippe to pick up his $185,000 custom-made watch which he promptly tossed without further thought into his fur coat closet at the Dakota.

In Paul's tender ballad "And I Love Her ," he describes to his lover what dripping from a dead dog's eye?a-hard-days-night-paul-8a-hard-days-night-paul-8a-hard-days-night-paul-8a-hard-days-night-paul-8a-hard-days-night-paul-8a-hard-days-night-paul-8a-hard-days-night-paul-8a-hard-days-night-paul-8a-hard-days-night-paul-8a-hard-days-night-paul-8a-hard-days-night-paul-8

He was all happy because Cold Turkey was #1 so he started singing and cleaning all the house. When passed nearby the award's tiny box a laugh came from there so he went and opened the box and said: what are you laughing at?? You naughty!!!
So he put it in a brown bag and send it over to Pete Best with a note: "Pete Best whishes, John." And the rest is history.

What was Pete's reaction?

"Bloody Hell! More of Lennon's hand-me-downs!"

George wrote 'Only A Northern Song ' because that sentence was an answer to a question he was asked. What was the question?

Pete Best. "No, Pete. Let me repeat what I said. I am not going to ask John to let you back into the group!"

Where was the person flying back from when he was going back to the U.S.S.R.? What did Russian customs confiscate from him?

They both took their names from a man on a flaming pie.

What was the man doing on a flaming pie and why was it on fire?

He was yelling "ouch - this pie is on fire!" It was on fire because it was a pot pie. a-hard-days-night-george-4

What did The Beatles do that angered Imelda Marcos' postman?

They didn't say "please"

How did the Filipino public react?

They tried to Please Please Him.

 

What did Beatles Book Monthly write to address the "Paul is no longer among the living" rumors?

Why was the popular recurring feature "Ringo's Corner" censored in the November '66 issue of Beatles Book Monthly?

A fan had sent in an unsettling letter thinking the feature was titled "Ringo's Cornhole". It wasn't pretty - from any angle. a-hard-days-night-ringo-6

To deaden the sound of Ringo's bass drum, what did the studio engineers stuff it with?

Ringo had commented on how his nose was bigger than Jesus' nose probably was.

Trick question - Mal was out buying cheap wine and socks for the band.

When The Beatles met Elvis, Mal reached for his coat pocket for a plectrum (a guitar pick). Why could he not retrieve it?

Ringo had lent him that HOLE in his POCKET, and the pick (plectrum) had gone through it and popped out in Pepperland , where it was picked up by George's Lonely Hearts Club Band alter ego.

To whom else did Ringo give his Hole?
