The Beatles were a decent band and all that. But if George, Paul, John, and Ringo had had an infatuation with slugs then history would have been different.
We set out to prove this right by rounding up some of the fab four’s best songs. Then we ruined them for posterity by taking a slug-happy approach. Are we smug about it? Get back, something in the way slugs move tells us let is be.
Classic piano notes. Classic build-up. Classic chorus.
Here Comes The Slug
Very slowly, obviously, as they don’t have an incredible turn of speed about them.
Let It Slug
“When I find myself in times of trouble, slugs come to me” croons Sir Paul McCartney. The British press noted in 1970 that less of a slug focus for the song might have worked better. Slugs say no.
Can’t Buy Me Slugs
When you’re a bit on the poor side, no one can buy you slugs. Which is a bugger.
The more slugs there are joined together in one place, the less slugs there are joined together in another place somewhere else.
I Am The Slug
Surreal song about sitting on a cornflake, stupid bloody Tuesday, and being a slug. John Lennon… lay off the LSD, mate.
I Want To Hold Your Slug
Cheerful pop record that went straight to No. 1 and ensured a generation of Mods wanted to hold your slug.
While My Slug Gently Weeps
Luckily, most slugs are pretty cheerful – but if they watch a sad film, then they do cry from time to time.
“I never needed anybody’s slug in any way” go the catchy lyrics. Obviously, this song was written before The Beatles realised they like slugs and want to hold them.
We Can Slug It Out
Of course you can! Where there’s a slug there’s a way.
All You Need Is Slug
Can’t say we have the same enthusiasm as The Beatles here. Sometimes we need a bit more than slug. Lettuce as well, you know?
Slug Me Do
“You know, I slug you! So please… slug me do.” Catchy stuff. Just a bit weird on the relentless slug infactuation, The Beatles. Do you want to calm it down, maybe?
She Loves Slug
Well at least someone else loves slugs and not just The Beatles! God… was this a sixties thing? Were slugs everywhere back then? You don’t really see them around these days.
A Day in the Slug
A rather interesting song from a scientific perspective as it details 4,000 holes in Blackburn, Lancashire and how they were all made by slugs.
Liverpool isn’t overly near to Blackburn, Lancashire, but we guess the Fab Four was worried that those holes might spread to their beloved city?
Does that explain the slug love!?
Why was “The Long and Winding Slug” not included?
Because I forgot to add that one. I apologise.
