Beatles Mastermind 3 Answers & Standings
« on: April 06, 2008, 11:04:56 AM »

Here are the results of Beatles Mastermind 3

Beginnings (2 points)
"With The Beatles" saw George Harrison's debut as a composer (apart from the instrumental "Cry For A Shadow" which he wrote with Lennon and was released on different Tony Sheridan records here and there prior to Beatlemania). The song was composed in Bournemouth in August 1963 where they were fulfilling a six nights engagement. It was a response to a friend of their's who kept annoying George by asking him why he didn't write songs by himself not to have to sing Lennon-McCartney's anymore. The answer was "Don't Bother Me". What was the name of this Liverpool first days' friend?
Bill Harry

Beatlemania (2 points)
Which was the first released Beatles song to exceed 3 minutes?
You Really Got A Hold On Me

Who said this: "I feel now, on reflection, that we could have used our power a lot more for good. Not for politics, but just to be more helpful. We could have been some bigger force. It's an observation, not a regret. Regrets are useless."?
Ringo Starr

The Big Picture (Max 10 points)
Below is part of a picture of someone who was closely connected with The Beatles. Guess who it is and today you'll get 10 points. Each day I'll add a section to the picture, but the points available will go down. The sooner you guess it, the more points you'll get. I'll allow everyone one guess per day.

The Big Finish (10 points)
When and how did Ingrid Pederson find out that she was related to a Beatle?
John Lennon's half-sister, Ingrid, found out she was related to him in 1966, when she got her birth certificate before getting married.


Re: the question regarding Paul & John's final interview together. There seems to be some dispute on who was actually last to interview them against which interview was last to go out. Because of this, If you said either Larry Kane, or Joe Garagiola on the Tonight Show I've given the points.

The End  36
Harry Lime  36
Bobber  24
Geoff  38

Well, it depends on what source you take. Exceed is MORE THAN 3 minutes in my dictionary. On the sleeve note of the official LP it says 3.00, which is NOT LONGER than 3 minutes. In my cd-player it is even less. (2.58 to be precise)

I put it on iTunes. It's 3:03.

If people are going to split hairs, I'm going to stop the quiz. I'm already up to here with PM's about the qestions, and there aren't enough people in it to make it worthwhile.

I hope you don't stop the quiz, I've been really enjoying it, though I've struggled on a few questions.

I'd like to add my thoughts on this, if I may

You really got a hold on me is 3:03 long in my iTunes library as well and that was going to be my answer before I remembered the times were printed on the back of my CD, which I generally take as the official running time of the song and that gives it as 3 minutes exactly. It occurred to me then that I've heard/read from various places that Ticket to Ride was the first of their songs to exceed three minutes. I think the 'offical' time for TTR might be somewhere around the 3:07 mark but I'm not exactly sure, I only know that it's definitely longer than three minutes.
