Talk:The Beatles

From This Might Be A Wiki

"Shitty Beatles"[edit]

I think JL took the name "The Shitty Beatles" from Wayne's World... —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:30, February 7, 2007

Yeah, I read that on here. It's still a Beatles reference, though (especially in the context the quote was originally in). -CapitalQtalk ♪ 21:16, 7 February 2007 (UTC)

Wearing a Raincoat[edit]

Am I crazy, or does Wearing a Raincoat sound a bit Beatle-ish? Background vocals and all... --Luke 23:25, 7 February 2007 (UTC)

Off the top of my head, I can see a couple similarities with Fixing A Hole, but that might just be because of the slightly psychadelic lyrics. Also, very neat page-- it seems very TMBG-relevant, so maybe it could have its own title-page. And maybe add a short bio or something. ~ magbatz 23:47, 7 February 2007 (UTC)

Ringo walk[edit]

Don't forget the Johns' tendancy to refer to their solo work as their "Ringo walk projects". Also, Don't Worry Kyoko... does that count? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:56, February 10, 2007

Real page?[edit]

How 'bout making this a real page? ~ magbatz 01:15, 31 May 2007 (UTC)

Think it's actually deserving? I really just made it to keep track of stuff and maybe intrigue a few people with a compendium of odd observations. Are you thinking article or song theme (hypothetically speaking)? -CapitalQtalk ♪ 01:17, 31 May 2007 (UTC)
Probably song theme. And then we can put a little blurb about the Beatles themselves at the top. But yeah, I don't see why it can't be a real page-- the Giants are definitely influenced by them, and a good number of songs (as you proved on this page) reference them. ~ magbatz 01:50, 31 May 2007 (UTC)


Maybe this is just me, but I'm not too sure Goodnight My Friends is a reference to the song "Goodnight". Anyone agree? -- Buzzmusic100 ("Keep your voice down...")

Float Upstream[edit]

"Tell me that you like my float upstream" - I'm thinking this might be a lyrical reference to the "I'm Only Sleeping" line, "stay in bed, float upstream". It doesn't seem like a very common phrase, and most Google results for "float upstream" or "float up stream" are related to the Beatles lyric. What do you guys think? -CapitalQtalk ♪ 13:07, 2 September 2014 (EDT)

I'd say there's a good chance it was done in homage. Maybe you could ask Flans on Twitter to ask JL if that was the intention? --MisterMe (talk) 14:59, 6 September 2014 (EDT)
He never asks him anything, though. When people ask something related to one of his songs he just says "That would be a question for JL" but doesn't actually pass it along to him. As for the original question, personally I don't think there's enough evidence for it. --Self Called Nowhere (talk) 16:43, 6 September 2014 (EDT)

George Martin[edit]

Flans gave a very interesting response when asked if TMBG would have ever wanted to work with the legendary producer of the Beatles. Check it out here.[1] --MisterMe (talk) 08:41, 9 July 2018 (EDT)
