Beatle songs about Beatles
« on: July 05, 2010, 12:20:55 AM »

I'm trying to think of songs that the Beatles wrote about each other.
All those Years Ago- by George about John
Here Today- by Paul about John
See Yourself- by George about Paul
Never Without You- by Ringo about George
Early 1970- by Ringo about the other 3
How Do You Sleep- by John about Paul
When We Was Fab- by George about The Beatles
What else?
Anything favorable about Paul?
Anything at all about Ringo?

Three Legs is supposed to be about John and Yoko.

I've read that George's "Wah-Wah" was written when he quit the Beatles temporarily in 1969 after an argument with Paul.
Not sure if it is specifically about Paul though.

Paul's "Let Me Roll It" is said to be a reply to John's "How Do You Sleep".

"God" by Lennon mentions the Beatles.

Too Many People by Paul is supposedly about the Beatles.

Didn't John say that he gave Ringo, I'm the Greatest, because he himself couldn't sing it because it'd be seen as being egomaniacal?

"Living In the Material World" by George mentions the Beatles.

Also, I believe George's "Mystical One" is about himself.
