When one song makes you think of another song
« on: February 20, 2014, 10:18:35 PM »

Whenever I hear "Rocky Raccoon", I always think of "The Continuing Story Of Bungalow Bill" and vice versa. Maybe because they are both on the White Album and they have men's names in the titles.

Also "Penny Lane" and "Strawberry Fields" are linked to me.  Besides being flip sides of a single, they were Paul and John talking about places in their childhood.

Any others have songs that are linked?

I think of...


The Chiffons He's So Fine




And vice versa.

But if you're specifying just Beatles songs, then when I hear any of Paul's early love songs where Jane Asher served as his muse, I think about the others.

I, too, always link in my mind Rocky Raccoon/Bungalow Bill and Strawberry Fields/Penny Lane, revenert. Another pair that I always mentally combine are Hey Jude and Lady Madonna, not sure exactly why.

The Jam's 'Start' makes me think a lot of George's 'Taxman'.
And then George gets sued for 'My Sweet Lord' sounding a bit like 'He's So Fine'!
No wonder his view of the industry was less than 100% positive.
