It's been a long time since the Fab Four split up, but some of their songs soon will be storming up the charts - in Singapore. The Ministry of Information has lifted a ban on several rock tunes, including such Beatles classics as "Yellow Submarine" and "Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds."

The songs had been banned since their release in the '60s because Singaporean censors felt they glorified drug use and hippie culture. It was illegal for radio stations to play them or for record stores to sell the albums that contained them.Other songs that can begin getting airplay under the new relaxed policy include Bob Dylan's 1965 hit "Mr. Tambourine Man," "Proud Mary" by Creedence Clearwater Revival and Chicago's "25 or 6 to 4."
