Hello there, sad children of the sixties!
I’d like to cheer you up with the first of a series of four Beatles quizzes. The questions all refer to albums, including “Sergeant Pepper” and those coming after that. If you want to look up the answers and do it that way, then good for you, but you might enjoy the questions more if you tried to do them yourself without any help from the Internet. I have tried to make the questions doable, but clearly, one or two are meant to be difficult. Incidentally, the questions do not necessarily relate 100% to the illustrations, although the illustrations are meant to be a very large clue to the correct answers. On the other hand, the answer to Question 1 is not “A bald man with a tattooed head”
1 Who stands in front of me in my hour of darkness?
2 Who will never walk down Lime Street any more?
3 She came in through the bathroom window, but what was her protection?
4 She thought she was a cleaner, but what was she really? And what was her polite name?
5 Who did the the all American bullet-headed Saxon mother’s son take with him when he went out tiger hunting with his elephant and gun?
6 With whom does he spend his days in conversation?
7 What is happiness ?
8 Now, a question about the girl of his fancy. What was her surname, what did she call herself and what did everyone know her as?
9 How many holes in Blackburn Lancashire?
10 Who made a fool of everyone ? And why did we give her everything we owned?
