Music Picture Quiz - Guess the Beatles song titles

This is a bit of a brainteaser for any Beatles fans out there. Below are five picture clues to five Beatles song titles. Some of them may require a bit of lateral thinking, but really they are not that tough. Good luck!

 

Background

Formed in Liverpool, England in 1960, the Beatles are one of the most critically acclaimed and commercially successful acts in the history of popular music. The band consisted of John Lennon (rhythm guitar), Paul McCartney (bass guitar), George Harrison (lead guitar) and Ringo Starr (drums). The Beatles have had more number one albums on the UK charts, and held down the top spot longer than any other musical act and have sold more albums in the US than any other artist (source RIAA).

Former Rolling Stone associate editor Robert Greenfield

Hello James

If you can't get the last one, let me know and i'll send you the answers. As Tom O'Connor used to say "say what you see!"

Thanks for having a go.

OK, I think I got the first one, the name tag gave that one away.

Number 2 nearly fooled me, but I think I have it.

Number 3 I am home and away with.

Ahh number 4's just the ticket for a Beatles song.

Number 5 took a bit of working out

Took way too long on these but it was amusing and I think I got them all in the end.
