Using the "old" way...

1. The Beatles had a bass player called Paul McCartney
2. Paul McCartney duetted with Paul Simon at the Adopt A Minefield benefit concert.
3. Paul Simon sang about Joe DiMaggio in his song Mrs Robinson
4. Joe DiMaggio was at one time married to Marilyn Monroe!

Here's a shorter Brando connection:

1. Bob Dylan met the Beatles in 1964
2. In 1963 Dylan attended the March on Washington along with Marlon Brando
3. Marlon Brando had a long term affair with Marilyn Monroe

Or how about Marilyn was on the cover of Sgt Pepper. Doesn't that count!?

It wouldn't have anything to do with Moonwalks by any chance?

OK. Beatles to Billy Ocean:

1. The Beatles had a bass player called Paul McCartney
2. Who made a few records with Michael Jackson
3. Who is credited with inventing the Moonwalk
4. When actually, Billy Ocean did.

All these seem to be based around The Beatles having a bass player called Paul don't they?!!

Anyway... Beatles to Billy Ocean the NEW way!

1. The Beatles had a bass player called Paul (well what did you expect?!!)
2. Paul recorded with Michael Jackson.
3. Michael Jackson had a sister called Latoya
4. Latoya Jackson had some songs written for her by Billy Ocean (not sure if they actually met though).

Excellent. Mine was:
1. Beatles wrote Ob lida .....
2. Covered by Marmalade
3. Managed by Peter Walsh
4. Who managed Billy Ocean.

In '93 when times were hard I worked in a record distribution warehouse out by Heathrow. "When The Going Gets Tough" by Billy was number one, and it was the first time in years a label handled by them had topped the charts, so they played it over and over and..

That wasn't what I was thinking. How's Phil Spector linked to the Ramones?? I'm not huge on Ramones history unfortunately. Here's my way:

1. Paul, George, and Ringo all did a show called the Simpsons.
2. The Ramones also appeared on said show.

Pretty lame, but it works.

Aha, easy!

Phil Spector produced both Let It Be for The Beatles AND The Ramones' End Of The Century album.

I should have known that! Oh well, Phil did a lot of good work while he was out there terrorizing women. What a guy.

How about the Beatles linked to Russell Crowe!

Marilyn didn't have an affair with Brando. At least, not that I know of. Where did you hear that, Sandra?

Here's an interesting one:

Beatles to Hilary Duff:

1. The Beatles were asked to reunite for an episode of SNL
2. a show which was guest hosted many times by Steve Martin
3. Who appeared in the 2004 remake of Cheaper By The Dozen with Hilary Duff
