WHEN IT CAME TO #1 SONGS IN 1964, THE BEATLES WERE – – –
SOR MAT DT NS OIR UFF = FIRST AND “FOUR-MOST”
“Good Morning, Good Morning”, Everyone! 🎸🥁YES, “I FEEL FINE”! 🥁🎸
🎶 Baby’s good to me, you know, She’s happy as can be, you know, She said so…
I’m in love with her and I FEEL FINE…I’m so glad that she’s my little girl! She’s so glad, she’s telling all the world…That her Baby buys her things, you know…He buys her diamond rings, you know, She said so…She’s in love with me and I FEEL FINE…“I Feel Fine” – The Beatles 1964
🎸🥁The year was 1964, the music charts ablaze,
And radios all over were tuned in to a new craze…
Disc Jockeys started to INVEST with listeners near and far,
To a group called the Beatles, part of a future MEMOIR…
Their numbers were way off the charts, they became hard to beat
These Liverpool Boys were the rage and others met DEFEAT.
Where parents cried in protest and were so quick to judge,
No MALLET or a hammer could crush numbers…’twas no budge.
Protests said they weren’t SAVORY, and morally inept,
But nothing stood in their way, as the charts they quickly crept…
They’d later sing of Blackbirds, (but never of a PUFFIN),
The Beatles popularity was that of Four Stud Muffins…
And 1964 became the year in which they’d boast…
They conquered charts of the US, they were FIRST AND “FOUR-MOST”🥁🎸
“Imagine“ this? Another new word today? Let’s face it, Folks, I’m sure “It Don’t Come Easy”, but it looks like David’s done it again. “Because” “I Want to Tell You”, I searched and searched and I couldn’t find MALLET. Our other words, old favorites, and FOUR of them even go back as far 2010-11-12 and ‘15. MEMOIR, which was the only word that gave the Early Birds “Something” to pause over, is our oldest, seen back on 01/27/11, and PUFFIN was last RECORDED here on 04/14/19. But it does look like we have all new anagrams. Ok..And now our puzzle…”From Me to You”…
As many of our dedicated players know, THE BEATLES are no strangers to the Wonderful World of Jumble. We’ve seen them featured here many, many times over the years…And yet, there’s no “Maybe….I’m Amazed” still, every time I see them. And even though it’s well known that when it comes to The Beatles, Jeff, our illustrious artist can definitely “Dig It”, it still manages to “Please, Please Me” when I awaken from “Golden Slumbers” and find them here in a puzzle…
November, 1964, and we find ourselves at either Studio 54 or 55 of the ABC Television Studios in Los Angeles, where the show AMERICAN BANDSTAND is produced and filmed. Previously located in Philly, since February, it’s now moved out to LA. And DICK CLARK, the host we see here with the teens, can’t hide his enthusiasm speaking about The Beatles. With one #1 hit after another, they became FIRST in the hearts of music lovers, and had changed the face of American music by 1964…and now Dick’s about to introduce their newest hit, “I Feel Fine”. And “Do You Want to Know A Secret”? There were a slew of hits that preceded it that year alone, with “All My Loving”, released in February, still one of my favorites…So, in answer to our question…The Beatles were…FIRST AND “FOUR-MOST” in 1964. Excellent pun, David! Maybe ONE of your best yet! And “I Should Have Known Better” than to expect anything less!
Ok, eye candy. I’m trying to look at “Every Little Thing”, but “Isn’t it a Pity” that nothing seems to be hidden today? The panel’s awash in light purple, with the American Bandstand logo appearing on the drapery, and we can see the old-time camera used back then for filming. But wait…there is something that I find endearing. The young teen farthest left? If you look real closely, you can see that he’s wearing a tie. Now that’s something we don’t see much anymore, but back then, it was a normal part of “A Day In The Life” when going somewhere special…So, There you have it Folks, Done. Have a great day, Everyone…”Here Comes the Sun”, and as usual, I have a million things to get to. I swear, there could be “Eight Days a Week”, and I’d probably still be falling all over myself trying to keep to a schedule! Oh well, that’s me…a regular “Day Tripper”!🎸🥁🙋🏻♀️
I want to “Let It Be” known that I practically went around in “Circles” trying to get these words into a coherent sentence! But I’m “Not Guilty” of giving up…Now to try for a rhyme! 🎸🥁🙋🏻♀️
🏏 While playing a friendly game of croquet, someone suggested serving PUFFIN at the annual dinner, and the committee chairman, finding it nothing less than SAVORY, threw down his MALLET, saying FIRST AND FOREMOST that he’d never INVEST in such a meal, possibly one day having it noted in his MEMOIR that he’d eaten Puffin…and that he’d admit DEFEAT and quit before he’d agree…🏏
Ok, Here it is…”I’ll Be On My Way” now to Mass, but “I’ll Be Back”…🎸🙋🏻♀️
🐧While no one likes admitting it, DEFEAT can be a blow,
To feel a MALLET coming down, not SAVORY you know…
He thought he’d INVEST just this once in the Atlantic PUFFIN,
And just his luck he lost a ton…but took it on the chin…
Someday he’d write his MEMOIR of life along the coast…
But be assured this episode won’t be FIRST AND FOREMOST!🐧
Back home in Illinois,not in Indiana.Memoir threw me for a loop,but I did enjoy the Beatles references.
Good Morning, Professor. Yes, MEMOIR got my friends this morning too. Masterfully anagrammed! Glad to hear you’re getting some down time…Enjoy it! And thanks for the references Shout Out! Have a great day, Prof! 🎸🙋🏻♀️
Memoir gave me pause but other than that everything else fell into place. All in all a good Jumble Sunday. Happy Day to all of you.
Good Morning, Betty. The guys were throwing around, Roomie, Mommie, and I forget what else…they really BEAT the heck out of the poor word. David did very well…and yes, I agree…a good Sunday Jumble. Hoping you have a wonderful day, Betty! Be well! 🥁🙋🏻♀️
Hi all – No real problem with the words today, which surprised me. I did pause at MALLET, and I had to check MEMOIR to see whether there was an ‘E’ at the end. Got the answer as soon as I saw the answer letters.
I’ll say Have a great Sunday, everyone, so you won’t have to get bored reading the rest of this. 😉😂
🎵”It was the year of the Beatles
It was the year of the Stones
It was 1964
I was living in London
With the girl from the summer before
It was the year of the Beatles
It was the year of the Stones
A year after J.F.K.
We were staying up all night
And giving the days away
And the music was flowing
And blowing my way”🎵 (Paul Simon, “The Late Great Johnny Ace” from Hearts and Bones)
Not only were they “First and Four-Most” they were “Five-Most”, simultaneously holding down the first five spots on both the U.S. singles and album charts in April of 1964, a feat that astounds me to this day.
Fun writeup, Angela. I recently had a conversation with a guy in the comments section of a comic I follow that consisted completely of Beatles’ lyrics.
Angela, I think this is the greatest and best coincidence we’re ever had here – it was only a few days ago that you posted a link to “Suspicion” by Terry Stafford that showed him performing the song on American Bandstand and then being interviewed by Dick Clark, with “Meet the Beatles” hanging on the wall behind them. It’s not “Maybe I’m Amazed”, I’m definitely amazed!
Hey Steve, Good Morning. I’m glad you enjoyed it. That makes “Two of Us”… And considering that their last appearance here was kind of a bummer, https://tinyurl.com/yhsdh6jh, I was really excited to see this one “Come Together” this morning. But as far as the coincidence goes, considering that these puzzles are submitted at least six weeks prior to publication, I’d say it’s more of a once in a “Blue Moon” shot! 😉 …And with “All I’ve Got To Do”, I’m gonna run. But, “I Just Don’t Understand” why we haven’t heard from Mike M..”I’ve Got a Feeling” that he hasn’t seen this yet. You “Ask Me Why”? …”Because” it’s just too odd having “No Reply” here from him…”That’ll Be The Day” he passes up a Beatles Jumble! 😉 Ok…”Goodbye” for now…Have a good one! ..🎸🙋🏻♀️
That’s a cute “Crickets” reference, and given the connection to The Quarrymen and the Beatles’ name, we’ll gladly accept it, ‘Buddy’. 😉😂 Hope you have a great day also. 🙋🏻♂️
Who’s we? 😉🎸🤷🏻♀️
All us Beatle fans, I guess! We’ll ask Mike if he shows up. Thanks for that link from January also – I didn’t remember it at all. 🙄 (And I made myself laugh 😂)
Hmm..Well, I rest…no, stand my case,,,and you’ll see that I’ve dropped the mic.😉..(No pun intended)! And YVW! 🎸🥁🙋🏻♀️
The cover version of Buddy Holly’s classic song, “That’ll Be The Day”, was recorded by The Quarrymen on 14th July, 1958 at Percy Phillips’ Studio, in Liverpool. On this day, The Quarrymen made what would become known as “THE BEATLES” first recording….🎤🙋🏻
Okay, I’m still around. I was really surprised to see a Beatles puzzle on Nov 10 when there were none around Paul & Ringo’s birthdays last summer. I’m a little miffed that the last few Beatles puzzles always seem to be based around the word “four”–as if the most outstanding thing about the Beatles was that there were four of them! Maybe I’m being a little touchy.
There you are! Hi Mike…I was concerned about you. FOUR what it’s worth…(Just teasing you)…it has to be a b—-h coming up with a puzzle every single day, I bow to David’s prowess. But it could be he doesn’t give it a second thought…and it probably is easier to work with the word…FOR-FORE-FOUR, as opposed to another. But now I’m curious. Have there been that many? I didn’t look this morning…Too bad I have a houseful of people watching the game, or I’d go do some research. Maybe later, if I get a chance. Anyway, I’m happy to hear from you, and I hope things are going better…🎸🙋🏻♀️
Solved the words though I was hesitant on MEMOIR & PUFFIN. One I use to sound worldly and the other in High school biology. As for the solve I thought the quotes would refer to a clever restatement of a song’s title. WRONG! As for the “mopheads”, they could not pull me from mourning, although one of Lennon’s songs “Imagine” gave me hope. Looking for an easy Monday.
Good Monday morning. It’s 12:54 am. Went to A /C with my oldest and daughterinlaw. On the way I got all the words. The hardest for me was memoir. Up in the room I wanted to finish but I left the paper in the car. Last Wednesday I went to Resorts with the church bus and dropped 500. This time we’re staying at Harrah’s but we had brunch at Caesars and because I’m a veteran we saved 26.00 on the bill. If I only knew that we would have used it all the other times. We played at the Oceana and I hit for 589.00. Take care.
Good Morning, Brooklyn. Great to hear you recouped your losses. And when you get a chance, take a look online…There’s a slew of sites that have listings for all the places that offer Military discounts, not just today, Veterans Day, but everyday. I know my friends always use their ID at Home Depot and Lowe’s, Applebee’s, Dunkin’ Donuts and IHOP, Kohl’s, Macy’s and Foot Locker, just to name a few off the top of my head. I know Outback offers a 10% discount all the time, and for Veterans Day it’s 20%. There’s tons of places…Here’s a link to the American Legion site, but there’s a lot of other sites also. And as far as I know, a good number of AC locations afford the discount too. As for today, Veterans Day, a good number of restaurants offer free meals to Vets, I know Applebee’s for one, has been doing it for the last 12 years. And now that I think of it, I’ve heard a lot of Vets ask if a Military discount is offered at various places, and almost every time it is. Enjoy your day today, Paul, and Thank You for your service…And I hope you get yourself a much deserved free meal. 🇺🇸🙋🏻♀️
I did not get started on the Jumble until almost midnight and about to give up. I have only done that once this year. I kept thinking there must be a clue in the cartoon somewhere. Being a Beatles puzzle, I was sure FOUR was one of the words. I also felt the 3 letter word was AND. It bothered me that “number one songs” was here TWICE. Hmm, #1…FIRST! Now it all fit.
