I never thought the Jan & Dean classic, "Linda" was about Linda McCartney. (see post #1)

Default Linda

Yes, that's true. The song was written by at a request of her father, Mr Eastman, when she was just a little girl (at that time sure nobody could forsee her future liason with Paul :) . Jan And Dean made their version in 63 if I'm not mistaken. And, as we all know, Paul himself sang it at Linda's funeral party.
Though another quite interesting info about this song exists - "This song had been popular in the fifties and contrary to the rumor it was not written about Linda McCartney although there was a connection. The Linda that the song was written about had no interest in posing for a picture to be used for the cover of the sheet music, so a lawyer that was involved with the song suggested that his young daughters name was Linda, Linda Eastman and he thought it would be neat to have her picture on the sheet music, so her photo was featured on the final product. Linda Eastman went on to become Linda McCartney, Paul's wife".
But I personally read the memoirs of the author of the song himself /Jack Lawrence/, where he states that the song was written for little Linda Eastman.
Prior to Jan and Dean the song was covered by Buddy Clark and Perry Como.

That is insterestring, Mon. And you are right - 1963 was the year, the same year the Beatles rocked the world with "She Loves You" and played for the Queen.

I like the "My Boyfriend Got a Beatle Haircut." No doubt whoever he was, he had great hair!

I wish there was (and maybe there is, I don't know) a collection where these songs were all in one place, like a CD collection of "Beatle themed songs."

I don't think anybody mentioned "Empty garden (hey, hey Johnny)" by Elthon John yet. Needless to say it's been written for lennon, eh?

A quart of sweet tea

Goes to the bathroom
And then she comes back again

She thinks she looks just like Madonna
When she runs her greasy fingers through her bleached blonde hair
Most times she'll place another order
And lordy have mercy on that little bitty chair

She's got a butt bigger than the Beatles
Eating me outta house and home
Her booty size well it outta be illegal
She has a had time sitting on the throne

Hamburgers, hotdogs
Cheese fries and coleslaw
A dozen bear claws
Yum yum yum

Loves sausage links
Hates diet drinks
Takes up both seats in a two-seater car

Her doctor said lay off the bread
But he didn't say nothing bout a Snickers bar

She drinks sweet milk by the gallon
And she'd never eat a salad or a Lean Cuisine
And she'll lay
Spread out on the hammock
After she's done her damage at the Dairy Queen

She's got a butt bigger than the Beatles
Folks make fun cause she's overgrown
Her rumps shaped like a Volkswagen Beetle
She gives new meaning to the words big boned

Bagels and cream cheese
Vaniller ice cream
A tub of whip cream
Yum yum yum

No you won't find her name on the weight loss of fame
Down at Jenny Craig's
When she cleans em out at the Waffle House
They'll bring in more ham and eggs
Ewwwwwwww

She's got a butt bigger than the Beatles
Her favorite food is chocolate Ding Dongs
It's wide enough to play line backer for the Eagles
Dion Sanders better leave her alone

Tried chicken that steak
Or a fat free milk shake
Enough for god's sake
Stop the insanity

Weight Watchers yeah

Weight Watchers yeah

Yeah I watched her weight
I watched it go from 117 and a quarter when I married her
To 317 and a half two and a half years latter
Moooooooo
But I still love ya honey



The song is evidently a parody of the Joe Diffie tune Bigger Than The Beatles.

Color me impressed. You guys certainly know your Beatles-tribute(?) songs. It's kind of amazing, but it also seems that Ringo has more individual songs in his honor than do any of the others.

I'm interested in the Foo Fighters, Oh, George, song. . .anyone know what album that is on and/or how long ago it came out?

Btw, it is Vladimir Lenin, who wanted control of the USSR to be in the hands of the workers (a worker state, if you will) and the irony is that he is reading a book of Marx which is what the repressive capitalist regime that dominated the Soviet Union before its demise was based upon somewhat. That's who McLean is citing in the song, not our lovable sharp-tongued MopTop.

Joe Diffie (sp) did a song entitled "I've Got a Love That's Bigger Than the Beatles" (I think that is correct). I saw the video in or about 1996 and at the end, you see some Beatlesque statues (no close ups of the faces) and you hear a "yeah, yeah, yeah" chorus.

You just can't escape that Beatle influence....

There's a song called Ringo Buys A Rifle by the Dead Milkmen. Its clearly about Ringo. One of the lines is:

People told him what to say
Ordered (???) dream away
Paul was dubbing Ringo's drumming
John was dubbing Ringo's humming
People were starting to talk

And one of the lines also says "hey Paul, you a*@hole, dub this."

Its not very nice.
