Song Pop Quiz
« on: March 25, 2004, 07:33:08 AM »

Ok...heres how it goes.  I ask a question about any Beatles song and the person who answers it asks the next one.

What is the shortest song the Beatles ever recorded?


JWL

P.S.  All questions have to be about songs....can't jus be general Beatles trivia.  I hope this isn't too confusing!?

I just checked in a book - apparently Hey Jude is 7:15, Revolution #9 is 8:15, I Want You (She's So Heavy) is 7:44.

These times might be wrong though - I didn't check the actual CDs.

What Goes On is a Lennon/McCartney/Starkey composition.
I think Ringo must have contributed a line or two since it had actually been written for the most part before he was in the group!

Next question.What three Beatles songs are in the form of letters?

The only one I can think of is "Why" (Y) - is that what you mean?

Ok...I think maybe you made a mistake on this one, but here goes:

P.S. I Love You
Paperback Writer

Are both definitely in the "form" of a letter....however, I cannot think up another song that fits this mold.  I know plenty of other songs which talk about writing a letter, but are not actually in the form of a letter....The closest thing I can think of is:

Dear Prudence

Which opens with a greeting similar to a letter, but there is no evidence of a letter being written.

I would really like to hear the 3rd song, because I am stumped.

Zipp it, zipp. You're ridiculous. Poorly framed question about "letters". You got more respect for your question than you deserved.

JWL: it's clear you DO know what you're talking about. I agree that this zipp has been stupid.
