My Life According to The Beatles #MondayMusings

The Doglady has a musical challenge and I thought I would play along as it sounded like a lot of fun. And it was.

I chose The Beatles as I thought I would definitely find a song for each question but it wasn't easy.

The Challenge:

"Using only song names from ONE ARTIST OR BAND, answer the following questions. Try not to use the band I used, or repeat a song title. (It’s a lot harder than you think!)  Publish as “My Life According to (BAND NAME)” and link back to this post".

Q and A

Are you a male or female?
Lady Madonna

Describe yourself:
Child of Nature

How do you feel?:
I Feel Fine

Describe where you currently live:
Here There And Everywhere

If you could go anywhere, where would you go?
Across The Universe

Your favourite form of transportation:
Drive My Car

Your best friend is:
Another Girl

Your favourite colour is:
Yellow Submarine

What’s the weather like?
Here Comes The Sun

Favourite time of day:
A Hard Day's Night
(hmm day or night?)

If your life was a TV show, what would it be called?
Paperback Writer

What is life to you?
Magical Mystery Tour

Your relationships:
A Shot Of Rhythm and Blues

Your fear:
I Just Don't Understand

What is the best advice you have to give?
All Things Must Pass
(as in this too shall pass) 

If you could change your name, you would change it to:
Dizzy Miss Lizzy
(Miss Elizabeth Bennett considered one of the most beloved characters in British literature. Jane Austen herself described Lizzy as "as delightful a creature as ever appeared in print."  - source Wikipedia)

Thought for the day:
All You Need Is Love

How you would like to die:
While My Guitar Gently Weeps
(interesting inspiration behind this song)

Your soul’s present condition:
It's Only Love

Your motto:
Let It Be

The Beatles were a great band and each of them were extremely talented but I think George Harrison wrote some of the best songs - My Sweet Lord, Something, While My Guitar Gently Weeps were some of those.

I tried to find a good Beatles version of While My Guitar Gently Weeps but couldn't find one so here is the version from Concert for George - a tribute to George Harrison on his first death anniversary. The first time I saw this I this video I almost thought he was on stage. His son looks just like him. Before the finale, McCartney relayed to the audience, "Olivia said that with Dhani up on stage, it looks like George stayed young and we all got old". 

Eric Clapton (lead guitar and singer), Paul McCartney (piano/keyboard), 
Ringo Starr (drums), Dhani Harrison (backing guitar)

  1. This list is absolutely so good. I thought of myself joining the challenge.. but I know more of Hindi songs only.

    1. Thanks Ls. You could do hindi songs and translate for English speaking viewers.

  2. This would have been natural for one of my music Mondays, except I might have used the Beatles myself. I "came of age" right when they were popular so I know the vast majority of their songs and they have such an extensive library. My favorite song of theirs is "Blackbird". Alana

    1. Thanks Alana. The Beatles were an awesome band. One of my favourites is It's Only Love.

  3. Gah, I don't think I know any band/music artist well enough to complete this list. Nice work on the Beatles list.

    1. Thanks MantisLover. Glad you liked my list.

  4. Wow! This is such a fantastic meme/post! Am tempted to take this challenge!

    1. It sure is Shilpa. Do join it's a lot of fun.

  5. Great choice of bands and songs, Suzy! Thanks for playing along. ☺

    1. Thanks Debbie. This was so much fun. Thanks for hosting.

  6. This is SO cool! Your answers fit perfectly!! But I imagine it was really really challenging to do! How long did it take you to answer all the questions??

    ((Here from Micro Blog Monday's))

    1. Thanks Charlotte It was challenging deciding which song to pick but fun. Probably took me an hour tops an only because I kept chopping and changing. Thanks so much for dropping by.

  7. Very cute :-)

    I didn't know that about While My Guitar Gently Weeps. I love this unused line from the Wikipedia page: "As I'm sitting here, doing nothing but ageing."

    1. Thanks Mel. Was interesting to read. I might try that technique for my posts.

  8. Great choices! Paperback Writer - I love that!

  9. Fabulous answers to the questions, Suzy! Or should I call you as "Dizzy Miss Lizzy"? :)

  10. That's such a cool meme and your answers are fun. I would love to do that for Hindi songs :) :P

    1. Thanks Parul Hindi songs would be so much fun too.

  11. This is such a wonderful idea. I love your answers Suzy. I'm not sure I'd have been able to pick such smart ones - how perfectly you've made it fit.. And I love the Beatles too.

    1. Thanks Tulika The Beatles were an awesome band.

  12. I so loved reading this post, Suzy! Tough one to build up, but you have done it so well!

    1. Thanks Shilpa It was not as easy as it looks for sure

  13. SUZY ~
    Wow! Great answers! Of course The Beatles recorded so much that there's a good pool to draw from, but your selections worked perfectly. You even came up with a few Beatles songs that I don't even know!

    I just got done doing this Music Challenge also. I thought it was a lot of fun. Doglady Debbie turned us onto an enjoyable little game here.

    My first thought was to use Tom Waits. Immediately afterwards I thought of Bob Dylan, as he'd have a lot of interesting song titles to work with also. And then I briefly entertained the idea of going with the Beach Boys - I love them so.

    But in the end I went with my first impression, Tom Waits, and it worked out pretty well, I think.

    There really should be a color called "Submarine Yellow".

    ~ Stephen

    1. Thanks Stephen It was great fun. Submarine Yellow now that would be wild.

  14. Thanks for the Great Information in the post


  15. Great answers to the challenge. I love the Beatles. You used their song names perfectly. I love the video supplied, 'While My Guitar Gently Weeps'.

    1. Thanks Jeffrey. The Beatles were a great band. Thanks for visiting.
