A good trivia question?
I may have stumbled upon one late last week as I was writing the haiku for "Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite!." You'll notice a rather uncommon detail in the song's title: an exclamation point. This got me thinking about other Beatles songs that have one in their title. The makings of a decent trivia question, no? After some research, I found that, in addition to "Kite!," the other Beatles originals that meet this qualification are "Help!" and "Oh! Darling," the latter of which comes with the added curiosity of having the exclamation point split the two words in its name. The non-originals are "Kansas City/Hey-Hey-Hey-Hey!" and "Ooh! My Soul."
