Actor Brad Berwick – of Leave It to Beaver (1957) and Window on Main Street (1961) fame, apparently – suggests I’m Better Than The Beatles in 1965. Quite a claim. Not sure it was borne out by events.

this song seems to have a few Beatles references.

I’m A Loser 1:50 and 3:36

As within as without 2:03 and 3:48

Here Comes The Sun 2:13 and 3:58

 

There could even be more. The lyrics aren’t the easiest to hear.

^And we all know that the video is the best part. a-hard-days-night-john-6

Had this one in my head earlier —
‘And my brother’s back at home
With his Beatles and his Stones
We never got it off on this Revolution stuff’

Seriously. It doesn’t make the slightest bit of difference what’s playing in the background– I’d gladly watch the video with one of those “have YOU been INJURED in an ACCIDENT?” commercial soundtracks playing in the background.

And to keep on topic, a song that I am sure has been posted countless times:

“Lennon’s on sale again”

A song which very heavily influenced John going by events a year later.

This song was mentioned in post 27 of this thread, but I heard it for the first time today. “Like Ringo” by Dick Lord.

This song is absolutely amazing 

  

Thanks for that…I’ve known that sing since high school but wasn’t aware of the Beatles line until now!

Paul: Yeah well… first of all, we’re bringing out a ‘Stamp Out Detroit’ campaign.

That was such a long, long time ago
It was way back in ’76
Our friendship formed of pure innocence
We first met in Mathew Street
 
Where we heard something that would set us free
A sign stands over a door, it says
“Four lads who shook the world”
In the depths of those heady nights

I’d love to wake up smiling-full of the joys of spring
And hear on CNN that Elvis lives again
And that John’s back with the Beatles and they’re going out on tour
I’ll be the first in line for tickets-gotta see that show for sure
