I somehow stumbled across this song on social media, and obviously the title piqued my interest. It seems a bit overly reliant on the hook, “I love it when you say George Harrison is better in comparison to all three, minus Paul” (which I’m sure this forum would debate until the cows come home! John #1 IDST) but otherwise, a cute little ditty.

The following people thank kelicopter for this post:

Ahhh Girl, ewe2

I think it's great you're going through a phase,

and I'm awfully glad it'll all be over in a couple

of days

Eddy Grant (of Equals and “Electric Avenue” fame) mentions our boys in this great Chuck Berry tribute

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!"
-- Paul McCartney

Just heard the song Lonely People by hip-hop/RnB artist B.O.B.

It samples Eleanor Rigby and it is just really nice 🙂

This may be stretching it a little as part of the song, but Bowie makes an amusing reference to John during the preamble to The Little Drummer Boy (Peace on Earth) performance with Bing Crosby on Bing’s 1977 Christmas Special (which he didn’t live to see broadcast):

1968, Sly & the Family Stone’s “Plastic Jim” riffs on “Eleanor Rigby

Ron Nasty said (back on page 17 of this thread)
Mike Love uploaded this song, Pisces Brothers, to social media on what would have been George’s 71st birthday in 2014. It was officially released on his Unleash the Love album last year.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?…..eklcPkfSYQ

There is a painting on the wall
And as I walk on down the hall

A flood of memories come to mind

Of happy birthday’s back in time

Pisces brothers with worldly success

Seekers drawn to Rishikesh

Not for fortune or for more fame

But for enlightenment we came

To Maharishi and how sublime

It was an atmosphere divine

Such precious moments, now in the past

Music and memories are all that last

Jai guru deva, Hare Krishna, Hare Rama

Jai guru deva, little darling, Here Comes The Sun

Jai guru deva, Hare Krishna, gonna miss ya’

Now on the darkest of lonely nights

The heavens shine with one more light

And while the world below you sleeps

Some say your guitar gently weeps

And though your earthly form be gone

Your songs of life go on and on

Jai guru deva, Hare Krishna, Hare Rama

Jai guru deva, oh little darling, Here Comes The Sun

Jai guru deva, Hare Krishna, gonna miss ya’

And though we’ll miss you, now that you’re gone

Your songs of life

Go on and on

hearta-hard-days-night-paul-10

 

EDIT: Don’t know why video isn’t embedding if it still isn’t when you’re reading this, but video does play if you treat it like a link…

  

Just heard Mike Love sing this song in person. 

I’m glad I smiled through it instead of crying in that crowd.
