I found my way here so I guess I could tell a bit about myself...

 

First time I really came to know the Beatles was probably when I was 14 or so. My music teacher made us listen some early songs of Beatles, like Love Me Do, I can't remember exatcly. After hearing their music and seeing their photos, I thought, what's the big deal? Their songs aren't that spectacular and they look pretty ugly, except for Paul(forgive mea-hard-days-night-ringo-6).

 

So...I forgot about Beatles for quite a long time.  I couldn't help hearing some of their most famous songs, like Yesterday or Help, but that was pretty much about it. Untill... My dad had a CD called "Lennon Legend", I listened to it, and was blown away. I couldn't believe how awesome his music was compared to Beatles (that was before I had heard Beatles's later records, of course). I read Larry Kane's book about him, and I was enthralled. 

 

I was devastated when that CD finally broke (due to overuse?), but I got his "plastic album". Only recently did I came across with another biography of Lennon, from Norman. That's also the time I got interested in this -stuart-sutcliffe-person.  And somehow I started listening to Beatles songs, too, and I felt cheated. How come the radio(at least in here) only play the "crappy" Beatles songs?  After being a Lennon fan for so long I discovered Paul's talents, and George's,too. Of course, at this point I already thought they were all unbearably adorablea-hard-days-night-john-7. rarely goes a day by nowadays without me listening to them...

 

Ohh, and I'm born in -92, I live in Finland and my name is Taru. Sorry about my long babble! Recently I've been spending time to be able to tell their names apart. It's surprisingly hard... I felt so ashamed after watching a vid of a live concert of John and George, and thought that his "Here Comes The Sun" was boring. That's not the reason I was embarrassed though...I later listened the studio version, and thought it was John,'cause it sounded so much better! a-hard-days-night-george-5I wanna hide somewhere... Anyway, now I can easily tell their voices apart, but it was hard work.

Welcome Taru! Is it true that there is a word in Finnish meaning "Strawberry Fields Forever"?

 

I initially thought John was singing in both Yellow Submarine and Something, and Lady Madonna for that matter. And Penny Lane. I'm not sure whether I'm more embarrassed by Penny Lane or Yellow Submarine.

I really want to use heart, but I haven't had a chance yet, so there we go.

And I neeeeeeeeed her all the time

Dude, I’ve loved the boys for about 16 years (holy crap) and only THIS year did I realize that George sings “Long, Long, Long.” This whole time I thought it was John!

Welcome, Taru! <3

Wow, Strawberry Fields sounds a lot cooler in Finnish! Or at least it looks cooler. I don’t know how to pronounce it all.

Oh, btw, today I Wikipedia-d “Long, Long, Long” and apparently John didn’t even participate in the recording of the track! That totally shatters my entire universe. (Not really, just quoting “Hot Rod.”) I always thought that song had a very John-ish vibe to it. Oh well, I’m still going to picture the four of them playing together out in a sunny field when I listen to it. In fact, I will listen to it right now … :)
