1. Impossible as it may sound there are still Beatles
songs unreleased – the most notable ones being Carnival of Light (an
experimental piece recorded on 5 January 1967 for The Million Volt Light and
Sound Rave) and a 27-minute jam of Helter Skelter. A John Lennon
composition the three surviving Beatles worked on in the early ’90s prior to
the Anthology release called Grow Old with Me also remains
unreleased.

2. The Beatles (or at least half of it) sang for the Rolling Stones:
Lennon and Paul McCartney provided backing vocals to the 1967 single We
Love You
.

4. The Beatles’ third studio album A Hard Day’s Night
is the only one to exclusively contain Lennon-McCartney compositions.

5. Paul is not McCartney’s first name, James is. Lennon changed his
middle name from Winston to Ono after marrying Yoko Ono in 1969.

12. The working title for the film Help! was Eight Arms to
Hold You.
