LHC: Match these lyrics to the soundtrack songs!

On her Web site, author Elizabeth Eulberg created a soundtrack for The Lonely Hearts Club, including the following Beatles songs. Since we’ve been featuring different Beatles songs all month on Novel Novice, here’s your chance to show off your old-school rock prowess! Try to match the lyrics to the songs on the playlist. Since many of the songs are Beatles standards, we’ve made it a bit tricky. (The answer key PDF is below.)

Think it’s too easy? Take it a step further and write a poem including one of the lines we’ve quoted … then send it to us and we’ll feature it in a future post! (And we’ll forward it on to Elizabeth Eulberg, too!)

Song Titles:

  1. Yesterday
  2. Get Back
  3. Two of Us
  4. We Can Work It Out
