(I’ve got a 13 in reserve, just in case nobody comes up with one. It might be difficult anyway even to get to a dozen. I won’t even give a hint of my backup 13 except to note that it will enjoy the latitude of a generous interpretation of “higher than sea level”a-hard-days-night-george-4)

Now today I find, you have changed your mind

13 higher elevation references (higher than sea level) in Beatles songs.*

1. Back In The USSR (show me ’round your snow-peaked mountains)

2. Blue Jay Way (in the Hollywood Hills)

3. A Day In The Life (Found my way upstairs and had a smoke) 

*SB, are Beatle’s solo references welcome?

(just some notes along the way:  5 and 7 are exceptionally clever; 4’s parenthetical remark seems redundant since the title is about a literal hill!)

It’s the list-starter’s choice to specify whether or not solo references are welcome.

I’m sure there are 13 Beatles group references available (only three more to go) for this category anyway, so I suggest keeping to Beatles ‘group only’ for this interesting category, @Sea Belt.

Beatle songs only unless otherwise specified sounds good to me. At first I thought it would be hard to come up with 13 replies until I expanded my consciousness. a-hard-days-night-ringo-13

@Sea Belt What do you think about doing this prompt again, but expanding the criteria to include solo song lyrics?
