At the end of the last Beatles live concert John said what is now a very famous comment, what was it?

“Thank christ that’s over with, I’ve had to pee for the last hour. Don’t block that stairwell…”  [scrambles off]

Why didn’t Mal play his anvil on the master take of “Maxwell”?

Mal was playing the anvil,, just not his, because they all thought John’s sounded better. Poor Mal mal-evans

About a girl who came to stay.

We all know the man from the flaming pie told them “From this day on you are Botles without a T” but… what did he say after that?

He finished the sentence with “…because so many people don’t pronounce the T in the middle of words so it won’t be missed.”

What did the girl from Chichester in the song “On My Way to Work” become after she studied history?

She became educated.

How did America react when John claimed, “We’re taller than Jesus right now, if we stand on one another’s shoulders”?

@meaigs, I hope you’ll play this game with us. The “aim” of the game is to give any answer except the correct one – and some won’t have a “correct” answer. After you give an answer, then you create a question for someone else to answer.

Just read through a few pages to get the gist of the game.

Trick question: The lyrics specifies “take…” not “buy”; and indeed the doctor offered F*R*E*E samples to any rock stars+beautiful wives who might wish to visit his home for tea, and biscuits, and lively conversation over card-games; and possibly a small consciousness-expanding orgy or two, maybe…but only if they promise not to leave early and go driving to clubs (at 15km/hr).

They are both Schrödinger’s woman, therefore the answer is yes or no, depending on how the wave form collapses

The dude playing sitar during the Indian restaurant scene in Help ! Turns out he was a massive Beatles fan, and George had always been his favorite Beatle, so when George showed an interest in his beloved instrument, he was so thrilled and honored by this that he straight up just said “Take it, it’s yours.” George, to his credit, tried to refuse, but the man insisted that he would make enough money off of being in a Beatles film that he could easily buy another one, and at any rate, money was nothing next to being able to give such an important gift to his favorite Beatle. He then mentioned something about it all being just material trappings anyway, and that the path to true consciousness lay (or lie, I’m not too sure) in transcending the material world… which was something that stuck in George’s mind for all the rest of the day, although he had no idea how it would eventually change his life…

How did it eventually change his life?

An angry protester in the crowd at Candlestick Park hurled a baseball at the stage, which George skillfully batted away with the upraised Indian instrument in hands, knocking all 19 strings out of tune while sending the ball far to the upper stands. The remarkable athletic feat was witnessed by an impressed San Francisco Giants baseball talent scout, who immediately offered George a lucrative slugger’s contract after this final Beatles concert – which the endlessly searching, curious George immediately accepted, happy for a new livelihood, now that he wasn’t a Beatle anymore.

What does “We all know ‘obla-di, bla-da…” have to do with a song about a box of chocolates?

They were both snippets of songs that none of the Beatles could figure out how to finish so they put them together as a medley for the closing song of the Please Please Me album. Bob Dylan’s cover of the medley went to number 1 in Spain for 3 weeks.

Trick question. Mimi took her nephew’s words to heart and donated her material possessions to the local church after hearing Imagine . When she died, she had nothing except a lock of John’s hair, which she’d bought at a car boot sale three years previously.

 

Who did Decca choose to sign instead of The Beatles in 1962?

They signed Rory and The Hurricanes, mainly on the strength of their drummer.

Paul likes “Glass Onion “; John is partial to “I’m Down “; and George and Ringo both choose “Honey Don’t ” – just because all four Beatles got excited by hearing their names sung/spoken aloud.

Why was “Revolution 9 ” never added to the live setlist?

Because it was on the die setlist.

Who was responsible for compiling the live and die setlists, and why? (Hint: this same person later wrote Live And Let Die about his time performing this duty)

James Paul McCaltrey himveryself. He wrote not only the best Beatless songs but all of them. He also created the other Beatless on his own image (only a little less perfect)

Why was their song “Bach in the USSR” so controversial?

They had a rolling (over) contract with Beethoven. The legal ramifications went on for decades, though it turned out it never applied in Russia.

Who was the first person to be called the fifth Beatle?
