** "Savoy Truffle", a funky, horn-driven song about...Music/EricClapton getting a toothache after eating too many chocolates. [[note]]Speculation has been made that the song might be ''really'' alluding to Clapton's heroin addiction at the time, though.[[/note]]

* SiameseTwinSongs: "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" and "With a Little Help from My Friends".
** And later, the reprise of "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" and "A Day in the Life".

Friends". Later in the album, the reprise of "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" and fades into "A Day in the Life".


Added DiffLines:

** ''[[VideoGame/RockBand The Beatles: Rock Band]]'' video game fuses together "Tomorrow Never Knows" from ''Revolver'' and "Within You Without You" from ''Sgt. Pepper'', to awesome effect.

Added DiffLines:

** Paul has explicitly said that "if there was a fifth Beatle, it was Brian." The speed with which things began to go downhill for the band after Epstein's death seems to support this theory.

Once Brian Epstein died in 1967, the writing was on the wall for the Beatles. Ringo Starr briefly quit during the making of ''Music/TheWhiteAlbum'', and George Harrison did the same during the ''Music/LetItBe'' sessions. Finally, John Lennon quit for good in September 1969. The band broke up in 1970 under [[CreativeDifferences circumstances painful to think about]]. Everyone went on to solo careers of varying success, most notably [=McCartney=] with Music/{{Wings}}. The dissolution was finalized in 1974, but Apple Corps (the Beatles' management company) was left intact. For perhaps fifteen years, few people saw any purpose for that...

* UsefulNotes/{{Ireland}}: Three of the four Beatles came from Irish immigrant families on at least one side, Ringo being the only 100% Englishman among them; Paul is the only one who was Irish on both sides. John and Paul even professed their love for Ireland during their solo years; John had "Luck of the Irish" and "Sunday, Bloody Sunday", and Paul had "Give Ireland Back to the Irish", although none of them are exactly crowning moments of anything.



* UsefulNotes/NationalHealthService:
** Referenced in "Doctor Robert" (and also some of John's improv in their early work in UsefulNotes/{{Hamburg}}).
** Those glasses that Lennon made famous in the 1960s? Standard-issue National Health glasses.



* UsefulNotes/ThePoppy: "Behind the shelter in the middle of a roundabout/A pretty nurse is selling poppies from a tray..."

* MentorOccupationalHazard: Manager Brian Epstein, who died shortly after ''Sgt. Pepper''. Doubly subverted, as Epstein's death didn't cause the band to become more mature; instead, his absence left a vacuum which led to their eventual breakup.

** "Back in the U.S.S.R." is not only in the style of Music/ChuckBerry, but also a striking parody of TheBeachBoys (who themselves took flak for an earlier InTheStyleOf of Mr. Berry).

** Julian's younger half-brother Sean did better, at least from an artistic POV. Sean's 1998 indie rock effort ''Into the Sun'' was different enough from not only Julian's more pop efforts, but also the works of [[Music/{{Oasis}} a certain other band who played the same genre as him]] who were endlessly indebted to his father, that it wound up being very well received. Sean reportedly shopped around the world for a record label that cared about his music and not his family name, and found it in BeastieBoys' label Grand Royal.
