Searching for Beatles in a Haystack, Pt. 1

Fab Four fans will appreciate an email we recently received from a DJ friend named T.R. Post and the email exchange that ensued. It's a Beatle-esque title-fest.

Since you like to include hit song titles in the text of your newsletters, I thought you might enjoy reading something I emailed my mother a couple years ago the day after she turned 64 years old. (Note: she lives in the Fargo ND area, where it often floods every spring):
Good Day Sunshine
I Feel Fine. Since there was No Reply, I want to make sure you enjoyed your Birthday greeting Yesterday. Hopefully it inspired you to Twist And Shout. If only this sort of thing happened to This Boy Eight Days a Week. Then maybe I'd have a career as a Paperback Writer. I could keep doing this When I'm Sixty-Four With A Little Help From My Friends.
I'd prefer to Drive My Car on the The Long and Winding Road to Fargo-Moorhead during the summer. But if the flooding gets really bad there, just call for Help! I might have to get a Ticket To Ride on a Yellow Submarine to navigate through an Octopus's Garden… especially if somebody builds the dikes with Something like Norweigan Wood. But for now, I will Let It Be and assume things are Getting Better.
Do You Want to Know a Secret? I sometimes feel like a Nowhere Man traveling A Hard Day's Night as a missionary. People may look at me as The Fool on the Hill on some Magical Mystery Tour. But I'd rather be walking along Penny Lane preaching The Word than working as a Taxman.
We Can Work It Out and Come Together when I Get Back.
P.S. I Love You
