Um...Hi?

I'm Fool in a Field of Strawberries, and I remain incapable of choosing a favorite Beatle. I can't choose a favorite album or song, and I once made a friend mostly based on the fact that they like the Beatles. I'm not likely to say much, but you might find me wandering around, looking through various forums and not sharing my opinion in discussions.

It's taken me years to figure out that part of my fascination with this brilliant group may come from the fact that I could never know everything about them. It's one of the few topics where feeling out of my element won't turn me away from it completely, but often draws me towards it in the hopes of learning more.

So, let me sound more sure of it this time.

Hi!

Welcome! And I do hope you stay even after you have learnt a thing or two here.

Hello I'm Katie,

I'm 23 years old from the USA, rediscovered The Beatles when I was 14, and haven't stopped listening to them since. Basically, I hung with stoners and rockers in high school and if you didn't know who The Beatles were among other bands such as Pink Floyd or The Doors, you were shunned.  I have been lurking here for about two years, but have always been afraid to say anything. By the way, I am an dyslexic, so please bear with me. I know this is the internet, but I have run across a few people who get uptight about grammar.

I was born December 7, 1989. Had I been born 28 minutes later or been born on the east coast I would've been born on the 8th.

Paul is my favorite Beatle, for his songs are the ones I listen and enjoy the most; however, I saw Ringo in concert. That is mostly due to the price of tickets for a Paul show and the fact that he never comes arouand where I live. Oh well, I got to see a Beatle, that was my main goal, and I enjoyed it. No regrets! I also found Paul cute back in the day, even though he is old enough to be my grandfather now.

My favorite album is Abbey Road followed by The White Album, Revolver, Sgt Pepper, and Rubber Soul

I cannot pick a favorite song!

Welcome! I too suffer from the inability to pick a favourite song, as well as an album. There's not at least one bit of dyslexia in your post which is amazing. I too suffer from a form of dyslexia, I can't bear reading text written in my native language (or maybe I am just a tad too lazy?). I too dream of watching a Paul Concert if he manages to tour somewhere in Asia. It's happy to see that many "guests" are showing up like I did.

Welcome. Don't worry about the dyslexia. I'm always looking at my posts after I've submitted and having to reopen them to edit them because I've missed out words or spelt things wrong. And with people from all over the world here, you get tons of different spellings and use of grammar anyway - there's British English (mine), American English, and English as a 2nd language. In among all the variations it probably wouldn't even be noticed.

Hi There

I have been guesting on here for a few days and decided to register, so here is a brief intro of myself

I am a very young 60 years and live in the North West of England. I grew up in the 60's (my teenage years) and first heard the Beatles when they released the Please Please Me single, from then on I was hooked.

I have a decent collection of vinyl records, CD's and bootlegs of the band and their solo recordings, also a fair few books on all things Beatles.

I try not to disect every song looking for wrong notes, out of tune singing etc. I just think that they were the greatest perfomers, musicians and writers of all time and listen to their songs at some time every day.

Hello all!  I am a Canadian 'girl' (well, I'm 29) and I love the Beatles (Obviously..  I'm here, aren't I?).   As cheesy as it may sound, their music has changed my life.  It is inspiring and promotes a way of life that I like to live by.   :)  

Specifically, I am also a HUGE Paul McCartney fan.  He's a beautiful man, inside and out.  My spouse and I are basically vegetarian/animal-loving/hippies so he's always been right up my alley.   :)  We had the amazing experience of seeing Paul in concert in Vancouver BC in November.  Three hours at 70 years old!  Outstanding.  My respect for him has soared.  

My spouse always lovingly says of the Beatles, "I'm a Fan, not a Freak".  He's cheekily referring to me, but I'm proud to be a freak.  I recently even got a tattoo of "The End" lyrics on my forearm (in four chunks, going around dogwood flowers).  

Seems like a great group here, glad to meet you all!   :)

"Please don't bring your banjo back, I know where it's been..  I wasn't hardly gone a day, when it became the scene..  Banjos!  Banjos!  All the time, I can't forget that tune..  and if I ever see another banjo, I'm going out and buy a big balloon!"
