Twist and Shout

1) In the movie Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Ferris climbs up on a parade float and enthusiastically lip synchs this song, encouraging the entire crowd to join in. Do you know the lyrics of "Twist and Shout" well enough to sing along?
(Watch the impossibly young Matthew Broderick as Ferris here.) to sing along, yes, to lead the crowd--probably not

2) What other Beatles' song do you know all the words to? the red and blue albums

3) 49 years after their American debut, The Beatles are acknowledged as having a lasting impact on both music and culture. What performers on today's music scene do you think will be remembered 50 years from now? I'm trying to think of someone who is a prolific songwriter as well as a performer and I can see faces but can't think of names.

4) Paul McCartney is an enthusiastic advocate of the vegetarian lifestyle. Could you/have you tried to "go veggie?" I was a veggie for quite a few years

5) As a young boy, Ringo Starr suffered a severe attack of appendicitis and almost died. Do you still have your appendix? What about your tonsils? yes, I have both my appendix and tonsils

6) John Lennon sketched and doodled when he was bored or nervous. Do you have any nervous habits? I'm sure I do but I'm unaware of them

7) George Harrison loved Hawaii so much he bought a 63-acre estate in Maui. Have you ever visited our 50th state? sadly, not yet

8) Yoko Ono was a polarizing character in the Beatles' saga. Has any of your friends ever dated/married someone you just could not stand? oh, yes

9) Paul has had dogs his entire adult life, including a sheepdog, Martha, and a black lab, Jet. John was especially fond of a cat named Elvis and a tomcat he found in the snow and named Tim. Tell us about one of your pets. I have a variety of dust bunnies, they do not have names.

Don't feel bad -- with a guy like Ferris around, you'll never be called upon the lead. He's not giving up that mic for anything!

I expected you to claim Maggie as your own.

I love dust bunnies! I made a train once for my mother for Christmas, and used dust bunnies as the smoke from the chimney :)

The nice thing about dust bunnies is how fast they reproduce.
