13 Beatle songs (group or solo) that have an Asian connection (lyrics, instruments, etc.):

1. Norwegian Wood (This Bird Has Flown) (sitar played by George)

2. Aisumasen (I’m Sorry) (Aisumasen is a slightly corrupted version of the formal term ai sumimasen, which means “I’m sorry” in Japanese)

3. Shanghai Surprise (George with Vicki Brown)

4. Frozen Japanese (I’m going to go with the name it was released under in Japan for this one)

5. I Want To Hold Your Hand (The first Japanese Beatles a-side single b/w ‘This Boy – as shamelessly stolen from Joe’s Japan page)

6. Old Siam, Sir

7. Searchin’ (references fictional Asian detective Charlie Chan)

8. Hong Kong Blues (He kicked old Buddha’s gong)

Thank you for the suggestion of Ballroom Dancing, @meanmistermustard, but I don’t think it would be fair to count that one as the Nile is entirely in Africa.

Do you have another one, please?

And in the end

The love you take is equal to the love you make

6. Hey Diddle (My heart isn’t strong)

My hot take is that after the Beatles split they went down the paths of spiritualism, solipsism, alcoholism, and Paul McCartney
