There is a french song about the split up of the The Beatles, there are a LOT of references in the lyrics."Sgt Pepper lost his medals, Yellow Submarine is swallowed up, Lady Madonna picking flowers..."

Does this translation look correct, @Pennys Poppies?

@Ahhh Girl It's pretty well translated !mal-evans

There're just this errors : "It snowed on Yesterday The night they left each other (only for the first, for the others, it's right), and Jude is living alone in a cottage in Chelsea, Eleanor Rigby , your four musicians come one at a time to see you"

Rare 1964 single by The Foto-Fi Four (Harry Nilsson), Stand Up and Holler (a.k.a. All for The Beatles), which he co-wrote with John Marascalco. It marries a Rolling Stones Not Fade Away/Bo Diddley beat to lyrics about the Beatles arrival in the U.S.. The four-part harmonies are an early example of Nilsson's love of overdubbing, as all voices are him. The original single, which didn't chart, came with a short 8mm film of the Beatles landing in New York.

Hey, hey, how you girlies gonna flip those bonnets
Hey, here comes the plane with the Beatles on it
Look, there's John, Paul, George and Ringo
One of 'em's taken but three are single

Two bit, four bit, six bits, a dollar
All folks need 'em to stand up and holler
Yeah yeah
Yeah yeah

Ooh, buy your records and see your movies
Hey, how can four cats be so groovy?
Long black hair just hangin' in your face now
Ain't nobody gonna take your place now

Two bit, four bit, six bits, a dollar
All for the Beatles just stand up and holler
Yeah yeah
Yeah yeah

When you sing that 'Twist And Shout ' now
Knock those little girls right on out now
When you shake your head like you do-oo
Thrill them little girls through and through now

Two bit, four bit, six bits, a dollar
All for The Beatles to stand up and holler
Yeah yeah
Yeah yeah

Oh Beatles, Beatles, don't ever leave now
'Cause if you do we'll surely grieve now
Oh stay right here where you belong
'Cause we love you and your song

Two bit, four bit, six bits, a dollar
All for The Beatles to stand up and holler
Yeah yeah
Yeah yeah

Wow, that's great! Harry never could've guessed that in three years he'd be cited as the boys' favourite artist, nor that he'd honor and collaborate with 'em in later years.

Not strictly a Beatles reference here, just a mention of a "deluxe Merseybeat wig". But since it's the Bonzos, and it's a great song from an excellent debut and it deserves to be heard, here it is...

GEORGE: In fact, The Detroit Sound. JOHN: In fact, yes. GEORGE: In fact, yeah. Tamla-Motown artists are our favorites. The Miracles. JOHN: We like Marvin Gaye. GEORGE: The Impressions PAUL & GEORGE: Mary Wells. GEORGE: The Exciters. RINGO: Chuck Jackson. JOHN: To name but eighty.

Sure wish there was a YouTube link for this song, "So you busted Paul McCartney ",closing track from Canadian meat-and-potatoes generic hardrocker Gus' 1980 debut (??only??) album "Convicted", not only so I could share it, but so I could hear it myself again, which I haven't a decade, since I streamed and downloaded it illegally and the computer died ?. As best I recall It lasts about a minute, has a single verse, and repeats the "I want you/heavy" riff throughout, as backing, then fades. Anyways, the album isn't too distinguished, even by the standards of 1980 Canadian generic hard rock, but "She's not gonna come to you" is a pretty good song as far as that goes. Be nice if there was a YouTube link.

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!"
