Hello again everyone! It’s time for another #askNat. I never really know what kind of question I’m going to get for these and that is one of the things that keeps it interesting. Often it will delve into a really cool segment of Beatles history, but sometimes it’s a little ‘lighter’ than that and more about simply the lore of the music itself. Those are often jut as fun and can add to the enjoyment of listening to The Beatles. This week’s question is one of those. It comes from Stacey- though I didn’t catch where she was from, this time. Anyway, this is her question:
I am wondering what names have been used in Beatles songs (ie. “Martha,” “Billy Shears,” “Dr. Robert,” etc.). I ask this question selfishly because I’ve decided to name any pet I acquire from now on a name used in a Beatles song.
Nice question! This makes me wonder how many reading have pets with Beatle-names? Okay, hands up everyone! I’m betting it’s a lot. I have to admit that I have one. Anyway, I’ve put together a list of fictional and non-fictional characters in Beatles songs, but no guarantees that I got them all. If you see any I missed I’m hoping you’ll add them in the comments section below.
