The Martin numbers on ‘YS’ would be hard to remember but the rest are easily gettable. Go by album and you should get at least 90% if not higher.

You’re sitting at your friends place with their kid playing and in the background very quietly the radio plays the first Cords of Once Upon A Long Ago and you’re freaking out over it heartpaul-mccartney-thumb_gif

Thays good!  I was reading that, and I expected it to go the route of it not being the song, just a song with a similar beginning.  That happens to me all the time when I hear music in public.

Yep. I pretty much sang along the whole song. None of the other 3 adults had heard it before.

It’s even in 1968 and right before the song came out.

When you see the clue ‘Our World / vultures on 3’ on an episode of ‘Only Connect’ and become convinced the answer is a Beatles-related connection. It’s not.

When you don’t have your glasses on and all you can see are the capital letters of the holidays on your calendar and you see A…D… on tomorrow and immediately start singing “It’s just another day.” Then I put my glasses on and saw that it said Arbor Day. I kind of like it as Another Day better. LOL

…you Google image-search vague stuff like “John” or “Paul” and are surprised when you don’t necessarily see Lennon or McCartney results first

Reading that without seeing the picture immediately brought to mind Eloise.

Same!

My hot take is that after the Beatles split they went down the paths of spiritualism, solipsism, alcoholism, and Paul McCartney
