Wow, you sure got a lot of titles in this. It held together, though, fitting loosely around the titles...or should I say the titles fit loosely into the context. Either way, good job. :)

Oh, wow, this is brilliant, Jimi! Seriously amazing - to use 246 titles! And the story reads well, too! Glad you reposted. With perhaps a little tweaking, (some of the names only mean something to FS members) you might consider sending this to the Beatles museum in Liverpool. Just a thought!

Bravo.

Gosh, that must have taken you ages to write, it's very clever. You've managed to get all the Beatles titles in and loads of other names too and it makes sense! That is an incredible thing to do. I take it this was written for the contest back on 2012, not now? Well done, it is amazing! :) Sandra xx

    sandra, yes I created the contest in 2012. As you can see I used a lot of Fanstorians names. It was fun and it was a challenge in which a Fanstorian named Newsome asked to write a poem with 3 Beatle songs in it, I told him would do better than that.. I , absolutely had no idea where I was going with it, It just developed on its own.. lol... again thank you so very much fro stopping by. I appreciate you... Jiim

Six stars for your success at writing a fun story and including so many Beatles titles. This is very clever- the length is good because it enables you to develop the story. Thanks for the laugh. Well done!

    Lisa.. lol.. I am laughing because we just talked about length and verbosity!!! Hysterical, because I was just thinking,, Lordy, she would tare this work up!!! No really, I say this all in good fun. Domino2, always told me.. Goodness Jimi, you can natter!!!

    Lisa thank you for stopping by once again and for the exceptional. This is an old work and it was a challenge by a former Fanstorian who challenged me to write a poem with 3 Beatle songs and I thought, No, it would be way toooooooooo long, so I upped it to a story and created the contest by giving participants a list of every Beatle song and album. Needless to say I did not win the contest but the winner had a wonderful story with about 20 songs.

    Actually, this took me only about two hour to write and I had no idea where I was going with it. Funny, I just went down the list and created the work from there. Again a huge thank you... Jimi

WOW!!! You get an A+ for creativity for the inclusion of so many song titles, bands, lyrics...within one piece. I'm curious to know long it took you to create this masterpiece...
It was a fun exercise to read the so many songs from so many years ago...Great work!

    Mary Wakeford, how are you? This was such a fun thing to do. A friend had challenged me to write a poem using three Beatle songs. I told him I would do better than that. I just kept writing and had no idea where it would take me. It did not take me very long. Perhaps two hours and honestly I did no editing until I posted, but it was minimal through suggestions. This is an old piece. Thank you so very much for stopping by.. Jimi

OH my Good gracious me! If you don't win the contest then there is no fair play left in the universe. That was brilliant Jimi. Tell me truthfully, how long did it take. How many reruns and how much editing. I could never in a lifetime write anything as clever as that! lady you have talent to burn, and you tell me I'm a good writer? I bow at your alter. I'm sorry that there are only six stars that effort deserves a ten+I hope you win. Sincere love and cheers, your very humble friend Anne

    It's a remarkable work and I amazed you were able to create it so quickly.

    I'm upright and looking forward to some healing protocols for the ruptured disc, on Monday when I meet with the spine specialist, and on Thursday when I start physical therapy. Have a pleasant weekend- Joan

    I am thrilled you are doing well. I know you are in pain. Obviously you need some anti inflammatory and nutrients to build your strength. Have you looked into Product B by Isogenicxs?

    You are sweet, but I never spend much time on any work. I should, but I just do not.

    Thanks for the tip--I take lots of supplements and will check out Isogenicxs' Product B. Sweet dreams- Joan

Jimi, this is really impressive to fit all of these Beatles song title into a story. Each song brought back fond memories and tunes. This story resonated with me after I had used a Beatles song as an inspiration for a poem. Your story of 246 titles is masterful, although I found the titles overwhelmed the story which I found hard to follow since I am having so much fun reading the titles.

Studying the lyrics to "A Day in the Life," I am awed at the Beatles craft as poets, songwriters, and storytellers. Nearly fifty years have passed, and their songs are still inspiring people. When I wrote my poem "Another Attack," I thought, "I want to write poetry that people will read and enjoy fifty years from now." You can learn a lot from the Beatles. You crafted a psychedelic Magical Mystery Tour with their song titles. Thank you for revising this post.

I have no idea how you were able to use that many Beatle's song titles in one story.
246 Titles is totally amazing.

I wish you the best of luck in the contest.
