Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Which one of these songs is from 1958?

Answer: In Spite Of All The Danger

This song is definitely one of their few songs that were this old. Another example of one of their songs from this year is "That'll Be The Day".
2. According to "Tomorrow Never Knows", what are we supposed to listen to?

Answer: The color of our dreams

One of the lyrics of the song are: "Listen to the color of your dreams". The original name of this song, the last track on "Revolver", was "Mark I"
3. In "I'm So Tired", one of the lyrics is: "Although I'm so tired, I'll have another ____." Your task is to tell me that word.

Answer: Cigarette

Yes, the Beatles did actually like to smoke and do drugs. They were showed drugs by Bob Dylan, who thought one of the lyrics to "I Wanna Hold Your Hand" was, "I get high!", when actually it was, "I can't hide!". But this is actually said by the next question.
4. In one scene from their first movie, "A Hard Day's Night", the Beatles are running around and dancing on a field. This happens during which song?

Answer: Can't Buy Me Love

The Beatles are having fun, running around on a field while "Can't Buy Me Love" is playing in the background. This movie has eleven songs, in order they are played in the movie, they are:

1. "A Hard Day's Night"
2. "I Should Have Known Better"
3. "I Wanna Be Your Man"
4. "Don't Bother Me"
5. "All My Loving"
6. "If I Fell"
7. "Can't Buy Me Love"
8. "And I Love Her"
9. "I'm Happy Just to Dance with You"
10. "Tell Me Why"
11. "She Loves You"
5. How many Beatles were at one point left-handed?

Answer: two

The two Beatles that are left handed are Paul and Ringo. The reason that I put "at one point" in the question was because Ringo is actually ambidextrous, which means that he is equally adept with using both hands. When he was a child, he was left-handed, but he became ambidextrous when he got older.
6. George is the lead singer in "Winston's Walk".

Answer: False

This is actually a trick question. "Winston's Walk is one of their few instrumentals. The other instrumentals were: " A Beginning", "12 Bar Original", "Cat's Walk", "Cayenne", "Cry For A Shadow", and "Flying".
7. "12 Bar Original" appeared on what compilation album?

Answer: Anthology 2

This song is an instrumental recorded in 1965, but released in 1996. The released version was take 2. The album it was released on was the compilation album, "Anthology 2". The "Anthology" albums took the Beatle's most rare and unknown songs and outtakes, and even a few short interview quotes, and put them on three separate albums.
8. Frank Sinatra once said that he thought that "Something" was the greatest love song of the past 50 years.

Answer: True

Yes, he did actually say this, though he mistakenly attributed "Something" to Lennon/McCartney instead of Harrison.
9. Who plays the guitar solo in "Hey Bulldog"?

Answer: George Harrison

Geoff Emerick, the Beatles' engineer, in his book Here, There, Everywhere, he said: "Paul's bass line was probably the most inventive of any he'd done since Pepper, and it was really well played. Harrison's solo was sparkling, too--one of the few times that he nailed it right away.

His amp was turned up really loud, and he used one of his new fuzz boxes, which made his guitar absolutely scream." The other option in the question, George Martin, was completely absurd because he didn't play guitar.

He played the oboe, piano, and keyboards.
10. The drum solo in "The End" was intended by Ringo.

Answer: False

This is actually false. Ringo did not prefer to play solos, but the band wanted each member to have a solo in this song. During post production of the song, the other members instruments were turned down, leaving only the solo work by Ringo remaining on the track. The original recording, with the other members instruments restored can be found on the "Anthology 3" compilation.
11. In "I Am The Walrus", who is pornographic?

Answer: A Priestess

In this song, one of the lyrics is: "Pornographic priestess...".
12. John got the idea for "Being For The Benefit Of Mr. Kite" from what?

Answer: A Poster

John found a poster titled "Being For The Benefit Of Mr. Kite". The poster said many things, including things about The Hendersons, Henry the Horse, and Bishops Gate.
13. What are the colors, in order, from "All Together Now"?

Answer: Black, White, Green, Red, Pink, Brown, Yellow, Orange, Blue

The lyric in this song from "Yellow Submarine" is: "Black, White, Green, Red, Can I Take My Friend To Bed? Pink, Brown, Yellow, Orange, and Blue, I Love You." If you listen a bit closely, Paul actually says "Olange" instead of "Orange".
14. The first place that the Beatles ever performed at was "The Cavern Club".

Answer: False

Most people that are Beatles fans have heard of this place, and thought that it was the first place that they ever performed at. But all those people would be wrong. They actually performed many times in "The Casbah Coffee Club". This was actually Pete Best, the original drummer's house.

In the basement, they would throw lots of parties, and they performed for these parties. This house is actually on the street, Penny Lane, in Liverpool, England.
15. Paul wrote "Back In The USSR" as a parody of what band?

Answer: The Beach Boys

Paul said this at a 1984 interview with Playboy. You can actually tell when you listen to this song that it kind of sounds like the Beach Boys, especially at the part where he sings,"Now, Ukraine girls really knock me out...". It sounds like them because of all of the harmonizing.
16. "Julia" is about John's mother, who got run over by an off-duty police officer. How old was John when his mother got killed?

Answer: 17

Julia Lennon's death was very traumatic for John, who wrote two songs, "Julia" and "Mother" about her.
17. Here is another question about John, personally. What was his middle name?

Answer: Winston

John's full name is John Winston Lennon. The other choices, James, Alfred, and Fred were other people's names. Paul's first name is James, John's dad's name was Alfred, and Fred was just a random name that I chose to put in the question.
18. What was the original name of "Sexy Sadie"?

Answer: Maharishi

Maharishi Mahesh Yogi was a man that they met in India. He helped them reach a meditative state. This song was written for him, but when they got back to the USA from India, George begged John to change it to "Sexy Sadie" if the song be used on the album, so he finally did.
19. What is the difference between the long and short versions of "It's All Too Much"?

Answer: An Extra Verse

"It's All Too Much" is normally 6 minutes and 27 seconds, but the long version is over 8 minutes long. The extra time is filled up by an extra verse.
20. George Harrison's wife, Patty Boyd, left him for who?

Answer: Eric Clapton

Patty Boyd left her marriage with Harrison, and she went out and married Eric Clapton.
21. Who produced the "Let It Be" album?

Answer: Phil Spector

Although George Martin produced almost every one of the Beatle's previous songs, he did not produce the album, "Let It Be". This was produced by Phil Spector.
22. Who sings "Chains"?

Answer: George Harrison

George sings this song from, "Please, Please Me". This song features a lot of harmonica. The only reason I put Richard Starkey as an optional answer was to confuse some of the people that did not know that that is Ringo's real name, even though the answer is George.
23. "Chains" was written by McCartney/Harrison.

Answer: False

"Chains" was not written by Paul and George, in fact, it was not written by any Beatle. It was a cover, written by Gerry Goffin and Carole King.
24. Paul's full title is James Paul McCartney.

Answer: False

Paul's full name, with title, is actually Sir James Paul McCartney. Paul was knighted, so his name begins with Sir. Their producer, George Martin, was also knighted. His full name is Sir George Henry Martin.
25. Who sings "Carry That Weight"?

Answer: Paul, John, George, Ringo

Yes, that is right, everyone sings in "Carry That Weight". It is one of their last songs.
