Now you're getting good!

Perhaps it is pushing it a bit though - kind of like the fans who bought into the whole Paul is dead thing and started seeing things that probably weren't there.

On the other hand........

Let it Be

From the To Let Bee - or bee with a 'for rent' sign. Pretty clever.

"You Never Give Me Your Money"? - though I'm not sure about that one. (My friend suggested it.)

My friend also suggested that the kid in the stroller could be Bungalow Bill, from the lyric, "In case of accidents he always took his mom".

This is the best one so far - in my opinion

If you look closely, I don't think they are hearts on his jeans, but his guitar is dripping at the end - "While My Guitar Gently Weeps".

The guy sitting down and stretching and yawning at the bottom center (next to the "Not Dead" guy) - "I'm So Tired" from the White Album.

Bottom left-hand corner - the construction worker carrying that big load of tools - "Carry That Weight" from Abbey Road. Thanks to my friend again for that one.

I was thinking 'Can't Buy Me Love' but I don't think it's right because the baby doesn't fit.

Ahh, a co-worker just suggested Baby You're A Rich Man. I think that's it, but I can't take credit.

This entire thread has been a thoroughly enjoyable reduction in my productivity today.

Brilliant - that's definitely it. Please thank your co-worker for putting that one to rest!

My friend just told me that although the guy with the "Not Dead" sign is probably a reference to the "Paul is dead" theory, it's also a direct reference to the song "I'm Only Sleeping".

OK, my friend (who is also a DJ) is getting into high gear now. She said that the guy digging next to the "Fixing A Hole" guy represents the song "Dig It" (from "Let It Be").

I'm all out of ideas, but my friend is still coming up with them. The truck on the Long And Winding Road has "Piggies" on the side (from The White Album)

Thanks for "violating" the expectation of submitting one answer per post, so that others could have an opportunity to play along.
Did anyone notice that the "Hello, Goodbye" reference (one guy approaching the other while the other waves goodbye) could also be a reference to.... guess.

While I only posted one song per post, but posted so many of them, it probably drove everyone else bonkers. My apologies - I don't know what got into me yesterday, but I couldn't stop thinking about that picture.

The 2 birds in the window above the store - I said that they could represent "Blackbird", but now I'm wondering if "And Your Bird Can Sing" is more appropriate.

Still thinking about an alternate meaning for the "Hello Goodbye" guys.

Others have played along just fine, I think.
