Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. What soft drink was mentioned in the lyrics to "Come Together"?

Answer: Coca-Cola

This song was written by John Lennon at the request of Timothy Leary, the LSD advocate who had decided to run for office with the campaign slogan of "Come Together". Lennon wrote the song in May of 1969 during his famous Montreal "bed-in" with Yoko Ono. Leary was arrested and jailed before he could use the song, so it was recorded by The Beatles.
"He shoot Coca Cola, he say I know you, you know me, One thing I can tell you is you got to be free. Come together, right now, over me."
2. How did the singer in "Something" answer the question, "will my love grow"?

Answer: I don't know

Written by George Harrison after hearing James Taylor's "Something in the Way She Moves", this was the only Beatles song that Frank Sinatra would sing. He called it the "greatest love song ever written", but changed the lyrics "You stick around and it may show" to "You stick around, Jack, she might show."
"You're asking me will my love grow", with "I don't know, I don't know."
3. Who was Maxwell Edison's first victim in "Maxwell's Silver Hammer"?

Answer: Joan

Only Paul McCartney could get away with writing and recording a novelty song about a serial killer. After killing his girlfriend, Maxwell went on to murder his teacher and a judge.
"Maxwell Edison, majoring in medicine, calls her on the phone, "Can I take you out to the pictures Joan? But as she's getting ready to go, a knock comes on the door. Bang! Bang! Maxwell's silver hammer came down upon her head. Clang! Clang! Maxwell's silver hammer made sure that she was dead."
4. What promise did the singer in "Oh! Darling" make in an attempt to keep his girlfriend from leaving him?

Answer: Never do her harm

This was a 1950s style song written by Paul McCartney begging a girlfriend to not leave in exchange for a promise.
"Oh! darling, please believe me, I'll never do you no harm, Believe me when I tell you, I'll never do you no harm. Oh! Darling, if you leave me, I'll never make it alone, Believe me when I beg you, ooo, don't ever leave me alone."
5. Where would the singer in "Octopus's Garden" like to be?

Answer: Under the sea

This song was written by Ringo Starr, and was inspired by octopus stories told him by a boat captain during a 1968 family boating trip.
"I'd like to be, under the sea, in an octopus's garden in the shade. He'd let us in, knows where we've been, in his octopus's garden in the shade."
6. What was was the name of the sister to "Mean Mr. Mustard"?

Answer: Pam

A Hyde Park bag lady and a newspaper article about a money-hiding old miser were John Lennon's inspirations for this song.
"His sister Pam works in a shop she never stops, she's a go getter. Takes him out to look at the Queen, only place that he's ever been."
7. What day of the week was not mentioned in "She Came In Through the Bathroom Window"?

Answer: Wednesday

An actual event was Paul McCartney's inspiration for this song. A group of teenaged girl stalkers gained entrance into Paul's home when one of them climbed a ladder and entered through the bathroom window. The song was covered by Joe Cocker in 1970 and reached number 30 in Billboard's Top 40.
"Didn't anybody tell her, didn't anybody see, Sunday's on the phone to Monday, Tuesday's on the phone to me She said she'd always been a dancer, she worked at fifteen clubs a day."
8. How did "Polythene Pam" look?

Answer: Like a man

Two women were John Lennon's inspirations for "Polythene Pam". One was a fan from The Beatles' old club days who ate polythene and was know as Polythene Pat. The other was a girl named Stephanie who dressed in a polythene bag.
"Well you should see Polythene Pam, she's so good looking but she looks like a man. Well, you should see her in drag dressed in a polythene bag, Yes you should see Polythene Pam, Yeah, yeah, yeah."
9. What season of the year was mentioned in "Here Comes the Sun"?

Answer: Winter

As The Beatles were disintegrating as a group, they were required to spend long days in meetings at Apple Headquarters. After the meetings concluded, George Harrison was basking in the sunlight in his garden and the song came to him.
"Little darling, it's been a long cold lonely winter. Little darling, it feels like years since it's been here. Here comes the sun, do do do do, Here comes the sun, and I say, It's all right."
10. What beverage was mentioned in the lyrics to "Her Majesty"?

Answer: Wine

Actually, The Beatles were quite fond of Queen Elizabeth and received their Member British Empire (MBE) from her in 1965. Paul once said that "she was just like a mum to us."
"Her majesty's a pretty nice girl, but she doesn't have a lot to say, Her majesty's a pretty nice girl, but she changes from day to day. I wanna tell her that I love her a lot, but I gotta get a belly full of wine Her majesty's a pretty nice girl, someday I'm gonna make her mine, Oh, yeah, some day I'm gonna make her mine."
