in the song "December is for Cynics" by The Matches, there is a lyric in the second verse that goes:

But Snopes.com says if you play
"strawberry fields" the wrong way
You can hear Lennon's ghost say
'luap deirub I'
'I buried Paul'


...funny thing is, no where does it say on Snopes.com (that i can find using the search bar) does it say that about "strawberry fields forever". I think the band it trying to start their own urban legend.

That's sweet!

As for the Strawberry Fields Forever thing, the first bullet brings you to an off-site where it says about the "I buried Paul" thing.

So the lyrics should really be "But recmusicbeatles.com says if you play," but I digress. [Razz]
