I believe policemen in the UK are referred to as Bobbies, so I'll try I Am The Walrus (Mister city policeman sitting pretty).

And I'll try For You Blue because of the "bob cat, bob" in the middle part.

I've heard he's sipping a Bloody Mary so I'll try Let It Be .

I Want To Hold Your Hand

Quote from a Far Out magazine article (as well as Joe's book and various other sources)

The band had, according to reports, been formally introduced to cannabis by the iconic figure of the songwriting genius Bob Dylan during a special meeting back in 1964. The two artists met after a show and it saw Dylan arrive with a sizeable bag of weed, but the Fab Four were all amateurs in the game, a surprising moment for Dylan who had expected to find four stoners when they met.

The confusion arose as Dylan thought they were singing “I get high” in the chorus of their 1964 hit ‘I Want To Hold Your Hand ’. John Lennon was quick to explain that the often misheard lyric was actually, “I can’t hide”.

I think it's great you're going through a phase,

and I'm awfully glad it'll all be over in a couple

of days

Apologies for the delay, I ran out of data.

Some good suggestions, one of which is right.

I wanted a picture of Bob that could be taken more than one way, and you found most of the ways I thought of.

The winner is @sir walter raleigh and Doctor Robert , though I didn't have a specific line in mind - my thinking was Bob's proper name is Robert; that he has two honorary doctorates (from Princeton in the US and St. Andrews in Scotland), so can call himself Doctor should he want to; and that they are most likely to have heard about the real Doctor Robert , Manhattan pill doctor Dr. Robert Freymann, closely associated with Warhol's Factory scene, from Dylan, who was semi-involved with socialite Edie Sedgwick during 1965 through 1966, who availed herself of Dr. Robert's services on a regular basis.

Over to you...

I went for an obvious one thinking it was probably a deeper Dylan connection, not realizing that it was right under my nose the whole time.

Hey Walt! I "helped" my daughter write a book report on The Great Gatsby a while ago. I thought it was clever to write a paragraph on The Sheik of Araby and mention The Beatles. The teacher liked it too and gave her an A+ a-hard-days-night-john-1

Looks like a box set of Fitzgerald novels, so maybe Paperback Writer ?

In My Life

I've just read an interesting article called F. Scott Fitzgerald and John Lennon, which is a comparison piece. The author writes: "Somehow the thought occurred to me: F. Scott Fitzgerald and John Lennon have a lot in common."

Ok, lots going on in this image. Maybe the book name on the box might be the clue. If you are on this side of paradise then you must know the ways of Heaven. (The Inner Light ) ahdn_george_05

Buy "Riding so high: The Beatles and drugs" right here: https://www.amazon.ca/Riding-S.....038;sr=8-1

I've read it, and it's great!  

And don't forget to vote blue jay way (and rocky raccoon) higher up on the 2021 Beatles song poll. If you don't wanna vote it, that's fine.

Hint: The Clue isn’t referring to any particular Fitzgerald book, and it requires two lyrical pieces to solve, one from The Beatles and one from another artist.
