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 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?

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

His doctor (who was stinking of gin) told Paul he had “met his match.”

But Paul thought it was only a scratch, and that he would be better as soon as he was able. (Paul was always master of the obvious a-hard-days-night-paul-5)

And since he was wanting some fun, he took Ob-la-di Ob-la-da for it. Cure was nearly instantaneous.

 

Who treated Ringo’s finger blisters at the end of Helter Skelter , and what method was used?

Martha was in studio to overdub her designated “Pepper” bits: Some barks in response to the “Good Morning…” cat-meow effects; and a harmonized howl with Ringo and boys during that final “…from my FRIEENNNNDS!” Paul’s delight in her studio professionalism led him to conceive of the high-frequency dogwhistle tone that closes the album.

Why did the boys decide against the matching collarless suits for their Apple Rooftop gig?

Well, they indeed decided to wear their classic collarless suits but when they opened the cover of the suits they found out not only the suits were collarless but also jacket and trousersless…they had been stolen. Suitless. So they improvised the furry coats and raincoat and stuff.

What Beatles song has the longest title?

No idea; it hasn’t stopped yet.

Why did Paul rework his song, “Five of Us”, reducing the number to “Two…” before recording it?

‘Five of Us’ was inspired by ’10 In The Bed’ but, well, it’s better left there but that’s why the bed was brought in to the studio a few months later. Paul did a hasty rewrite when he saw where things were going.

 

Why did John go into the antiques shop in which he found the poster which inspired ‘Being For The Benefit Of Mr Kite ‘?
