    Doing some research, I found that 4 of the Beatles’ songs used in “Yellow Submarine” made their debut in the film: “All Together Now,” “Hey Bulldog,” “Only a Northern Song,” and “It’s All Too Much.” Apparently as part of their deal with United Artists, the Beatles had to provide 4 new songs to include. So why didn’t any of them receive an Oscar nomination for Best Original Song?

    Could it be that none of them were submitted or did they not meet the eligibility requirements? Technically, “All Together Now,” “Only a Northern Song,” and “It’s All Too Much” were originally recorded in 1967, but remained unreleased until “Yellow Submarine.” “Hey Bulldog,” meanwhile, was actually cut out of the original American print of the film. I’m just wondering if there’s a record anywhere that indicates whether or not any of these songs were submitted for Oscar consideration.

    In any case, I guess it doesn’t really matter, since the Beatles later won an Oscar for “Let It Be.”

    the songs need to have been originally intended for the film

    That’s what I figure. Although perhaps the real question is why George Martin wasn’t nominated for Best Scoring of a Musical Picture — Original or Adaptation.
