Beatles references in Monkees songs

Which two songs recorded by the Monkees have Beatles references and what are those references?

In “Randy Scouse Git” (known as “Alternate Title” in the U.K.), lead singer and songwriter Micky Dolenz sings “The four kings of EMI are sitting stately on the floor.” The Beatles recorded for EMI’s Parlophone label and were viewed as kings. In the rocker “No Time,” lead singer Mickey calls out “Rock on George for Ringo one time” before the song’s instrumental guitar break. Ringo encouraged George to “rock on” in a few of the songs he sang lead on, including Honey Don’t, in which he says, “Ah, rock on George one time for me.” Both of the Monkees songs referred to above appear on the group’s “Headquarters” LP.
