Hello guys!

Thank you for all your research! In the last months I've been going through the whole thread in order to create a list with all of the references, because this will be part of my master thesis. So thanks for all the collecting!

Funnily enough the song which got my attention to this whole topic is not yet in here, so here is my contribution:

 

Echame La Culpa - Demi Lovato, Luis Fonsi:

"Play my like the Beatles, baby, just let it be."

(

)

 

Also I found this one which is not in here yet:

 

APES****T - The Carters (Beyoncé und Jay-Z):

"Ran through Liverpool like a fuckin' Beatle"

(

)

 

And I am not sure anymore if this one is in here, so I'll just post it nevertheless:

 

Going Bad - Meek Mill feat. Drake:

"Back home, smokin' legal (legal), I got more slaps than The Beatles (Beatles)."

(

)

 

Have a great weekend!

A few musical references...

First we have MF Doom featuring MF Grimm, and Tick, Tick, which is built on a sample of George Martin's Glass Onion  strings...

while 2 Live Crew's Fraternity Record (explicit language warning) was built around the Day Tripper  riff...

and Mac Miller sampled Lucy at the beginning of Loud...

while, lyrically, Boogie Down Productions pastiche Hey Jude  at the beginning of Criminally Minded...

and for a little old school, here's the Bootles with I'll Let You Hold My Hand...

I've liked that Bootles track since hearing it a month ago, but I find the intro has an even more elusive backbeat than "Drive My Car ".

Here's the Lovin' Spoonful from 1965, celebrating the return of rocking music to American airwaves, and the band most responsible:

I´ve been listening to my radio
for two or three years
And the music they´ve been playing is so doggone bad
That it´s offendin´to my ears
But them kids come over from the Mersey river
Made us think back till then
So let´s put on our shoes
And think about the blues
And start all over again

Someone said 'What were you gonna do when it's all finished,' and I said 'I don't know but it'd be good fun being a DJ.' And since then I've become a DJ, only by word of mouth, you know. SO any minute now you'll read, 'Ringo leaves to become a DJ' but it's not true. - Ringo Starr

I'm sure this has been mentioned before, but the rap group Run-DMC has a song called "King of Rock" where the following lyrics can be found:

"There's three of us, but we're not the Beatles."

The silly writer of the song thought the Beatles had 3 members, instead of 4. Quite the oddball, honestly.

Pretty new to this forum.

Good day (sunshine).

Haha, I did mention it before! apple01 Run-DMC's explanation was that only three Beatles were alive at recording time.

Going Bad by Meek Mill

 

 

The line that references them is "I got more slaps than The Beatles", which means he's got more jams than they do
