Yellow Submarine is a Beatles song written by Paul McCartney, with lead vocals by Ringo Starr. Written as a singalong for children, it first appeared on Revolver in 1966, and was later included on the Yellow Submarine movie soundtrack album in 1969.

The song's chorus is very repetitive. The title phrase "yellow submarine" appears 44 times in the song, more than any other Beatles song except for "Hey Jude".

Yellow Submarine Film

A G Rated, 1968 animated psychedelic film directed by George Dunning. While The Beatles declined to play themselves in the film, their singing voices are heard, and they make a live-action appearance at the end of the film. The movie was largely a success, and The Beatles were happy with Dunning's work. The plot of the film involves The Beatles being recruited to rescue Pepperland, an idyllic musical wonderland, from an invasion of Blue Meanies, a bizarre collection of music-hating creatures. The Beatles travel to Pepperland in a yellow submarine, starting from London, and making their way through the Sea of Time, the Sea of Science, the Sea of Monsters, the Sea of Nothing, and the Sea of Holes. Along the way, they meet a peculiar "Nowhere Man" named Jeremy.

Yellow Submarine in American culture

The Beatles' invasion, and commercial exploitation for profit, of the American entertainment market came not without resistance from some government, political, and entertainment personalities. Richard Nixon, J. Edgar Hoover, and Elvis Presley felt the Beatles had been responsible for promoting illegal drug use among American children.[1][2] This gave rise to the common phrase, "why don't you ride out on the same yellow submarine you rode in on", directed at leftists attempting to revolutionize American society.
