Joined last night. Found the website through google. I am reading the new book Tune In and was looking for a forum where it was being discussed. 

I was born in 1962 in New Jersey. I think I discovered the Beatles when I was around 10 or so. 

Compared to most Beatles fans I have run into in my life I think I'd give myself about an 8 in terms of Beatles trivia. 

I come here, and after reading through many of the posts and threads …I feel like a 2! LOL

Glad to be here. 

:)

Well, if you feel like a 2, when I joined I was sitting at negative 275.23. Welcome to Beatles University. Glad you've enrolled on our lovely campus. I hope you earn all your class participation points by chiming in on many threads. Enjoy.

Welcome aboard, some great folks here.  I know what you mean about the 8 / 2 thing – 'always a bigger fish in the ocean'  :)

Hi my name's Faisa but people call me Fizzle I'm 18 living in London. I've always liked The Beatles was not obsessed then until a few months ago I listened to the whole of Magical Mystery Tour album my interest sparked then I literally became obsessed I feel so late getting into Beatlemania but I'm stuck into it and my friends are sick and tired of hearing it! I just love learning something new everyday and need to share my excitement with people on the same page as me. I never really had a role model in my life but George is now a huge inspiration of mine I just want to feel welcome with my Beatle obsessed self somewhere haha so I signed up anyone want to take me under their wing?

But if you want money for people with minds that hate... All I can tell you is brother you have to wait. Alright.

Bring it! I just adore that man like when I first got into them I loved Lennon but then when I begun learning more about George specifically he felt easier to relate to just watching his journey and personal development and what people had to say about him just fascinated me. he fascinates me in general. Personally think he doesn't get enough credit and is massively underrated but hey it's my opinion sorry haha I do feel strongly about Harrison went on abit… But thanks Katie I will take a look at the page making me feel welcome already!

Welcome aboard Fizz – I think I've heard of London ….

Actually, I just happen to be wearing a Notting Hill t-shirt this morning – though I live in Oz.

My name is Simon. I was born December 11, 2000. I live in Pittsburgh, PA, USA. I play hockey (ice and deck), and I play bass (upright and guitar). My favorite TV shows are Doctor Who and Saturday Night Live, and my favorite movies are Moneyball and Men In Black.

I've liked the Beatles since I was 5, I listened to the Red Album on my mom's old record player. I knew all the really popular ones and liked them, and I played Yellow Submarine and Sgt. Pepper's/With A Little Help From My Friends in a concert, but didn't become a huge fan until I got Beatles Rock Band. It introduced me to slightly obscure songs such as Do You Want To Know A Secret and Dig A Pony. After that, I rapidly ended up with all the UK LPs except for Magical Mystery Tour. I now listen to them nonstop. My favorite songs are probably And Your Bird Can Sing, A Day In The Life, and It's All Too Much (although it could do with being 3 minutes shorter, I think its should fade the horn solo out). I really hate Piggies. I REALLY hate Piggies. I don't like Julia or Blue Jay Way. I believe George really was either fantastic (It's All Too Much, Something, While My Guitar Gently Weeps) or really horrible (Piggies, Blue Jay Way) although there's more of the better. My favorite albums are Abbey Road and A Hard Day's Night. My least favorites are The White Album and Beatles for Sale. I believe the Abbey Road Medley to be the best 15 minutes of music ever made. Looking forward to posting!

Welcome to the forum, Simon. Looking forward to your posts.

Magical Mystery Tour is one of my little bugbears. Assuming you have Yellow Submarine (sometimes people forget that one because of the George Martin stuff on it), you have all the UK LPs. MMT is an American album that was not released in the UK until 1976. In the UK the MMT were released as a double-EP. In America, Capitol took the UK double-EP, made that one side of an LP, and threw the remaining 1967 single tracks on the b-side. The Beatles played no part in putting the album together.

Welcome aboard Simon – great intro!!

Magical Mystery Tour is one of my favourites, as we had the LP here in Australia way back when – and having the book LP size rather than EP was well worth ignoring the fact that it was not 'Beatles certified'.  At the time it also made those songs on side 2 much easier to get hold of.  Now they are on CD it is more of a moot point and (as I think mja has already suggested) it could have all been on Past Masters and we wouldn't have to have All You Need Is Love on 2 CDs – it would have made the Masters booklet rather chunky though.

Ah, right. I meant I don't have the songs on Magical Mystery Tour. I don't have the double EP or the LP. And now I've made myself look like an idiot. Ah, well. 

On the It's All Too Much cut, it's much better, yes. I haven't seen that sequence for a while because my DVD of Yellow Submarine can't get past the Hey Bulldog scene.

Hey hey – no no no worries on the Tour, we just run off on tangents occasionally.
