* 1968 - ''Music/YellowSubmarine'' [[note]]Although only four of the songs ("OnlyaA Northern Song", "Hey Bulldog", "All Together Now", "It's All Too Much") are not pre-existing material from previous albums, the existence of this new material, as well as the flip-side original instrumental orchestral soundtrack by producer and "fifth Beatle" George Martin, makes the soundtrack officially a Beatles album instead of a compilation[[/note]]

** None of the Beatles received any formal training in music composition, and even their performance skills were mostly self-taught (with the exception of George's training on the sitar). Some of the innovation they displayed in their sound and style was because they hadn't been taught the "right way" to write music, and instead just did what sounded interesting to them. This also goes for Ringo, who played with a standard drum kit, despite being left-handed.[[note]]There is such a thing as a left-handed drum kit, just like Paul's guitars have the strings in the reverse order.[[/note]] This allowed him to do riffs, fills, and other little tricks that were very difficult for other drummers using "proper technique" to replicate.

** In [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yzJ7XlddN_0 an episode]] of ''Between The Lines'' about prosody, [[WebOriginal/BrowsHeldHigh Kyle Kalgren]] points out how every single form of poetic meter in written verse can be applied to at least one Beatles song.

* {{Corpsing}}: Paul cracks up during the second verse of "Maxwell's Silver Hammer" because John mooned him in the recording studio as he sang the line "so he waits behind".
