The Beatles are often considered the most influential band of all time, but this influence goes beyond music.

Their music has also inspired films, and it has given their titles to several movies.

Here you can find a list of titles named after Beatles songs.

Which of the Beatles songs that titled them is your favorite?

I'm sure there are more.


Do you think I should also add songs that inspired movie titles, even if they were not used exactly?

For example

All You Need is Love which became All You Need is Cash.

Yes, it is clearer now. I kinda thought you were asking about songs, but wasn't sure. Since, its a movie website it is probable worth being abundantly clear. Maybe, also put the song in the notes This will account for exact matches, inexact matches, and alternate song names. Plus it helps poll takers make the connection between the two and provides some consistency.

FYC: For Example,
Strawberry Fields (2012)  Beatles Song: "Strawberry Fields Forever"
The Man from Nowhere (2010) Beatles Song: "Nowhere Man"
The Daytrippers (1996) - IMDb Beatles Song: "Day Tripper"
Yesterday  (2019) Beatles Song: "Yesterday"
You Know My Name (1999 TV Movie) Beatles Song: "You Know My Name" aka Look Up the Number

FYI, you probably should list only once as the combined POV version, Them
The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Him (2013)
The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Her (2013)
The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Them (2014) Beatles Song: "Eleanor Rigby"

The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby - Wikipedia
All three films follow the same time period, but are told from the differing perspectives of Conor Ludlow (James McAvoy) and Eleanor Rigby (Jessica Chastain), a young married couple living in New York. Him looks at their relationship from Conor's angle, while Her follows Eleanor's. Them has the two separate films edited into a linear story; this is the version used for DVD and Blu-ray releases and broadcasting.

I added some of your suggestions, but not all. While there are many films with a title that is exactly as one from a Beatles song, I pretend to make the poll only with movies whose title was directly inspired by the group music.


Besides the name similarity, I could find no evidence that A Day in the Life, The Daytrippers, You Know My Name, or P.S. I love You got their name from the Beatles songs.


In the case of Strawberry Fields, I added the song due to a Spanish film that takes part of its lyrics as a title 'living is easy with eyes closed'.
I also added Nowhere Man, but through a different title, Nowhere Boy, which is about John Lennon.

The rest of the films you suggested have been added.

And it was precisely the release of Yesterday that inspired the poll, I hope is as interesting as the trailer promises, altought early reviews seem dissapointing.

Thanks.

Pencho15,

"That" should be capitalized in the title of your list.

Please change the title of your list from:

To:

When in doubt about capitalization, use this online tool:

Their songs are so important that many of them have given or inspired movie titles.

I included A Day in the Life thanks to a developing project about Brian Epstein, and added several documentaries to fill all the spots and have as many songs as possible.
