    The Beatles songs have many links with Chess.
    "When I'm Sixty Four", "We can Work it Out", "You Can't Do that",
    "Think for Yourself." etc etc.


    Paul McCartney (white) is playing John Lennon (black).
    This position arose.



    The Questions are:

    A). What song is Lennon singing?
    B). When was the game played?
    C). What are the chess pieces made of?

    The first to post the correct three answers will not
    get a Beatles Greatest Hits CD.

    And the rest does get Beatles CDs?

    Here's the attempt (Wikipedia didn't help a bit in the pickings):

    a) Nobody told me
    b) Some Time in New York City
    c) Ebony and Ivory

    All three wrong - (think 60's songs)

    Good try though.

    The pieces were made of Norwegian Wood.

    1.) I should have known better?

    or

    1.) I'm a loser?

    2.) Any time at all?

    Correct
    Lennon was singing "I'm A Loser."

    Now - When was the game played?...McCartney was White (clue).

    I was the fifth Beatle. I have proof.

    Anyone get the reference?

    Answer:

    A). What song is Lennon singing? 'I'm A Loser'
    B). When was the game played? 'Yesterday'
    C). What are the chess pieces made of? 'Norwegian Wood'

    See how nice this thread turned out.
    No sqabbling or bitching. 'All You Need is Love.'

    I'll leave it to some other bright person to come up with
    The Rolling Stones questions.

    Yes, when I was a kid my brother had the vcr of Best Of Eddie Murphy Saturday Night Live. He has a picture of him in the group. I thought it was pretty funny.
