Return of O.W.N. - Week 5 = "Hold Me Tight"

This week we're discovering the little talked about classic rock band from the U.K. called "The Beatles". Don't know why they decided to name themselves after a bunch of bugs but maybe Papa Roach knows... This is a classic Beatles number but has only been parodied twice so far on Amiright.com (Maybe we'll find out why) (Comments & Parodies)

His Dad is a hugely successful country hit writer, Rhett Akins. Think that helped? What took him do long with that pedigree? What’s age have to do with it? Kids have had top hits. He should have had at hit song ten years ago.

Nonsensical Song Lyrics -> Latest Entries

The Osborne Brothers', "Rocky Top"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Corn won't grow at all on Rocky Top.
Dirt's too rocky by far.
. That's why all the folks on Rocky Top
Get their corn from a jar.
Why They're Nonsensical:
This is totally begging the question. If corn won't grow on Rocky Top, then all corn that ever gets there has to be transported from elsewhere. That is true whether corn that gets there is eaten off the cob there or processed into moonshine (the "corn from a jar") at any point. Either way it has to be transported to Rocky Top in some form, wherever it is processed into any corn product. "Corn in a jar" is either transported to Rocky Top already in that form, or else corn (as picked off the stalks) is transported there and then made into corn mash, which is subsequently distilled into the "corn" that comes "from a jar". If corn won't grow there, that is only incidental to the fact that corn is processed somewhere into the corn "from a jar" and in turn consumed on Rocky Top.

Only happy endings
That's our recipe
Why They're Insincere:
Greta Garbo's character in "Camille" died, not to mention that the line contradicts with "And Greta Garbo is probably crying/While Robert Taylor is locked in her dying embrace". Grace Farrell wouldn't be sobbing in that theatre scene for nothing.
