Welcome to the seventh in the series of Challenges.

 

Between October 1962 and May 1970, The Beatles released 24 singles, 13 EPs, 13 Albums, with a total of 293 tracks.

                                                    HOME IN LYRICS CHALLENGE

Below is a list of home-related words which appear in officially released Beatles songs.

The Challenge is to find the song, or songs, in which each word appears.

 

The Challenge is open to everyone - new members and long-time members.

Most people will know some of the Beatles` songs, so whether you have an extensive collection or not, why not come and join in. I`m sure that the other regular players will make you feel welcome.

 

Hints/clues:

Some words appear in more than one song. In such cases, the number of songs in which the word is in is shown in [x].

Some songs contain more than one of the words on the list. In these cases, you need to find each word and post each answer in a separate post.

Note: you are not looking for other home-related words which may be in the lyrics of Beatles` songs but to find the songs in which the words in the list appear.

 

Should you find any of the words in the list are in songs which are not on my list, as in the previous Challenges, I will re-check my sources and give my verdict with an explanation as to my decision.

 

Answers which are "live" recordings; in BBC sessions; Polydor records [My Bonny or Ain`t She Sweet];

bootlegs; unreleased tracks; or only in the Anthology series; or in Revolution 9, are not accepted.

 

Rules:

Please, no googling, wiki, social media, iplayer, youtube, personal record collection [e.g. album sleeves] in search of the answers. Of course, listening to songs is permitted.

You may submit one answer for one word in one song per post - not two or more songs where the same word appears - and can only post one answer per day.

Each entry should be submitted as  [home-related word] in [name of song it appears in].

 

This Challenge will open at 10pm tomorrow [Thursday 30 May] when you can submit your first answer up to 10pm Friday, when the first results will be announced.

On each subsequent day/night, answers can be submitted after 11pm up to 10pm the next day.

 

The list of home-related words is given in the next post.

Good luck.

Thank you @Glory1 

Yes - 80 answers to be found - the biggest Challenge so far.

With some words having so many answers to find, it should be fun, competitive [in a friendly way], and challenging.

I hope everyone who takes part will enjoy it.
