Ok you got it... although this one got me a little confused.. i listened to my mp3 of Penny Lane 8 times and I don't hear "IN" at the beginning...  so i started checking lyrics sites, and some show it with the word "IN" and some show it without.. ???

OK, so it must be: You know our love was meant to be.

I think whitewolf deserves at least a point for getting so darn close two times. But then - it's your quiz! ;)

Well, technically you got it... but if you want to give her your point, since her answers helped you with #3 and this one, that's up to you... and very nice of you to think of it...

so, its your call. :)

Don't worry about it, whitewolf, you quoted the line correctly.  I'll try #19:  "The wise man said just walk this way."
