Because they wanted him to do the Charleston, but he only knew how to waltz. You know that old saying: Can’t teach an old horse a new dance.

She was a prostitute, that’s the prostitute song from Paul’s ‘songs about prostitutes and lesbians’. 

What happened to Paul after he recorded and released “Give My Regards To Broad Street “?

He hates you, nah, nah

He hates you, nah, nah

He was hailed as one of the most promising up-and-coming young directors from many in the movie business and had many offers of multi-movie contracts for millions of $s. These was turned down by Paul as he felt he had made the perfect movie and is why no follow-up film has been made by Paul.

What was the reason for the omission of ‘Please Please Me ‘ from the Beatles compilation  ‘1’ considering it is widely believed to be their first UK #1 single?

This was because a BBC Radio interviewer, while with the Four, said “Please Please Me , that number, is wonderful.”  Due to the radio static, most British teens thought he said it reached “number one”   This is why it is always good to follow this quote of American author Edgar Allen Poe:

“Believe only half of what you see and nothing that you hear, especially on the Internet.”

What did George mean by the phrase “One for you, nineteen for me” in the song Taxman ?

The track was going to be on their first album, Wild Life , where each track had to mention an animal.  But at the last minute, it was cut, as it was the only track that mentioned an amphibian.

We all know from the Let It Be album that Doris got her oats in Phase 1. But when did she get them, and from whom?

Good question as can be heard thru John’s exasperated cry “Doris!! Who the fuck’s Doris?!!!” on the rejected ‘Get Back ‘ album.

 

Jelly beans. If you bought a copy of the album at the time of the LP and played it at the speed of a 45″ single a secret compartment appeared on the LP and you got a limited edition numbered jelly bean available in four different flavours. These are incredibly rare nowadays but remain highly collectable. 

What were the four flavours of the jelly beans?

The flavors were cranberry sauce, “I buried Paul,” fish and finger pie, and Egg Man.

What is George Harrison ‘s surname?

Perkins.

In the song ‘I Am The Walrus ‘ what is the line “Everybody’s got one” referring to?*

 

*Inspired by the real question

a-hard-days-night-ringo-6 Did Louise Harrison ever tell Harold Harrison that he wasn’t really George’s dad?

Everybody’s got a case of Beatlemania.

How serious was Paul McCartney ‘s case of Beatlemania?
