When I'm Sixty Four

Give me your answer, fill in a form
Mine for evermore

Let It Be

There will be an answer

You Gave Me the Answer

You gave me the answer
to love eternally……

Here Today

What would your answer be?

Mind Games

Love is the answer and you know that for sure

You Gave Me the Answer

I didn't realize there were that many lyrics talking about answers.  Reminds me of the story about when John was the only Beatle the Maharishi invited on a helicopter flight.  Paul said he was jealous, because he thought the Maharishi might "slip him the Answer".  That word seems to hold extra meaning to the Beatles.

I also remember listening to that song when Venus And Mars came out.  I was at a certain age where I was really enjoying the new solo Beatle material that was being released, and Paul's was enjoyable because it usually had some commercial success.  You Gave Me the Answer was the type of music hall song that Freddie Mercury would do albums like Night at the Opera, but I have to admit it sounded cooler when Queen did it.

@Ahhh Girl @forn @kelicopter  Never realized there were so many answers. This could be matched up with the Moody Blues's "The Question"!
