It’s almost Labor Day weekend here in the states. What sort of holiday activities did the Beatles (group or solo) sing about?

1. Heart Of The Country (I wanna get me a good night’s sleep)

2. That Was Me (Spade and bucket by the sea, that was me)

3. Free Drinks (partying, dancing, shopping, etc. a-hard-days-night-ringo-6, Good day for nothing at all)

13. Flying

 

13 Beatles (group or solo) songs with fruit in the lyrics

1. Monkberry Moon Delight (banana, tomato)

I don’t think this category has been listed before.  I ran a quick search, and found this earlier list:

https://www.beatlesbible.com/forum/yesterday-and-today/forum-games/the-bakers-dozen/page-66/#p164586

but that was “13 fruits with a lots of seeds” – no specific connection with Beatles songs.

And in the end

The love you take is equal to the love you make

vonbontee, Richard

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