* From the first trailer, it's not entirely clear whether this is a world where the Beatles never existed or if they were forgotten by everyone, but if it's the former, wouldn't John most likely be alive?
** [[spoiler:Confirmed. Music/JohnLennon is still alive in this universe.]]
* How would Jack deal with the UnintentionalPeriodPiece aspects of some of the songs? "Taxman" would be especially problematic.
** He could be a retro-singer or simply skip the ones that date badly. Most bands only have a few hits and can reach epic stardom while he can mine literally dozens without ever running into a dud.
* The trailer established that the world had a power outage. While it's possible that all the digitally-stored information on The Beatles got lost (as Jack searched for Music/TheBeatles and John Paul George, and got results for beetles and Pope John Paul II, respectively), it doesn't explain why they were forgotten by all but one man. What happened to the physical copies of their records and [=CDs=], the posters of them, or any music-related magazines that mentioned them by name? And why is it that only one man remembers them? Did their fans suddenly lose interest in them or something?
** They've been retroactively erased from existence. In the same scene where Jack searches for information, he also checks his own record collection and finds his Beatles records having disappeared. The rest is never elaborated upon, however. [[spoiler:Though Jack doesn't turn out to be the only person remembering them, there's at least two other people who also remember them.]]
* Ellie first fell for Jack when he played a cover of "Wonderwall" when they were in school. If Music/{{Oasis}} doesn't exist in this new reality either, how did they meet?
** Presumably he played some other song they both loved.

** The implications from the trailer seem to be that John (barefoot) and Paul are coming on the talk show. It's very probable the band the Beatles broke up early and they went on to less successful careers. John might be an indie songwriter with a weird streak and Paul the frontman for Wings in this universe.
