Listening to Chicago's "Feeling Stronger" (GREAT song by the way) and I notice the lyric "feeling stronger every day, yeah, yeah, yeah" - a clear Beatle influence.

Any other songs with "yeah, yeah, yeah"?    

 

"The Long And Winding Road" ....

 

P.S. Using post #501 to thank Joe, the Moderators, and all Forum members old and new for a fun and stimulating place for Beatle aficionados to play.

Buddy Hollys Early in the Morning has yeah yeah yeahs but that was released in '58.

Thank you!
Yeah 3X by Cris Brown does, although having 'yeah yeah yeah' in a song is not necessarily a Beatles reference. Yeah is a very popular and overused word. Because we like The Beatles, we see a lot of 'references' that are not really there.

Good point, Unknown.

"When you have a hammer, everything looks like a nail."

When you have a theory, there is indeed a tendency to try to make everything fit.

But I suspect that on some level, anyone singing "yeah yeah yeah" after 1964 would be directly or indirectly influenced by the Beatles.

Yeah, I guess you're probably right, but what do I know anyways.
Where did you get that quote from, because whoever said that must be mad! Killing rats with a hammer, who does that?

"Yeah yeah yeah/The candy floss girl/The sticky fingered boy/Oh that sister of mine" - The Stone Roses, (Song For My) Sugar Spun Sister.

"Do I love you, my oh my?/River deep, mountain high/Yeah yeah yeah" - Ike and Tina Turner

Both fantastic songs.

Funkadelic, "You And Your Folks, Me And My Folks"
New York Dolls, "Personality Crisis"
Elton John, "I'm Still Standing"
Sly and the Family Stone, "You Can Make It If You Try"
...um, some Blue Oyster Cult song whose title escapes me now.

Also LOTS of songs titled "Yeah Yeah Yeah" - Alice Cooper, The Vibrators, and Bo Diddley being the ones that come to mind.

I remember George saying 'Blimey, he's always talking about “Yesterday”, you'd think he was Beethoven or somebody' - Paul McCartney

When I was reading "The Beatles 100 Best Songs"... or something like that... I remember when Paul's dad commented on the song "She Loves You" when they go YEAH YEAH YEAH! Well his dad was like, "Could you ever just say YES YES YES?" and Paul was like, "Dad, you don't understand, it just won't work."

Justin Bieber, Baby, anyone  a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 But to be honest, I don't think he's copying the Beatles (in that respect)

I know nothing about Justins music, just that he cant act. Was surprised he even knew of the beatles when i saw his praise on itunes.

Well you should learn a bit more about his music, because according to the Biebs, his new band is better than anything The Beatles ever did.paul-mccartney
