This is a version of a game started by @50yearslate, Match The Word With The Beatles Song. Since there were objections to allowing solo songs, we have decided to start a separate thread. 

Here are 50yearslate's original rules from the other thread, adapted for this one:

Basically, Person 1 will choose a (preferably uncommon) word that is in more than one solo song, and other people will try to guess the song. If they guess a song that contains the word but isn't the song Person 1 was thinking of, then Person 1 will give a hint (such as "it's a John song" "it's post-1970 " etc.) When somebody guesses the song correctly, it is then their turn to choose a song.

Some guidelines for choosing a word: Non-canon songs are okay, but please try to make sure your word is in more than one solo song to keep the game going. Also, please avoid unmemorable and overly common words such as "it" "she" "and" "love" etc. 

The word has to be the exact word specified; no variations. So if the word is "change" then "changed" and "changing" wouldn't count.

Sorry if the rules are unclear, but yes, you're supposed to add a clue every time, like the 10 Hint Beatles Song Challenge.

Also, please copy a list of the previously used words (like in the Beatles version) so we don't repeat.

We may end up having to specify who's song it is at the beginning if it's too hard otherwise, but for now we'll keep the same format as the Beatles version.

First word: Rain

Isn't he a bit like you and me?

Question: why is this thread in Yesterday in Today and not the Forum Games section?

I thought I put it in Forum Games. I guess I wasn't paying attention. Sorry.

Moved.

I Don't Know (That was right when it started to rain)

For some reason I had it in my head that we were going to do a thread like this for each Beatles solo works.

No guesses for 5 days, so here's another clue.

Word: low

Not:
Heart Of The Country

Clues
1. Paul song.
2. Tug Of War album.

And in the end

The love you take is equal to the love you make

I'm throwing in the towel then-- the only song off that album I'm familiar with is Here Today , which I don't think has the word 'low.'

Love one another.
