Welcome 4or5Magicians.

I've noticed your screen name for a few days listed down at the bottom of the forum pages in the "newest members" list and hoped that you would jump into the conversation.

I see that your location is "Sitting on a cornflake…". I don't know if you have noticed that we have a member with that screen name. That's just kind of a funny image … your John avatar sitting on his John avatar, like this:

Hope you have fun, share your knowledge and thoughts with us, and learn a thing or two about the Beatles along the way.

Its great to meet everybody.

I'm Jack from Dublin, Ireland and, despite being 22, I'm rather ashamed to confess that I discovered the greatest band in history just a few months ago. I bought a "Sgt Pepper" CD last November after hearing "For the benefit of Mr Kite" for the first time and comprehending the utter force of musical ability inherent in every chord. Since then, I've  raided Itunes and have amassed around 100 songs by the band.

Favorite Album : Abbey Road

Song:  1. Here There And Everywhere    2. A Day In The Life    3. In My Life   4. I'll Follow The Sun    5. Mr Kite! 

Solo Song: Lennon's God ( very closely followed by Working Class Hero)

I stumbled across this site  during the Christmas holidays and have used the forum to investigate the repertoire. I finally got around to contributing because I can't sleep!

I look forward to exploring further

All the best,

Jack

Hi Jack,

AppleScruffJunior is from Ireland, too. She will be glad you've landed here.

I'm so proud of the Beatles. Their music is soooooo awesome it keeps bringing folks into the fold.

Don't feel bad, Jack. I didn't find the Beatles until I was 45 (last May).

Welcome, welcome!

Welcome, Jack! You just won me over with the Working Class Hero love!

 

@Ahhh Girl

That's great! I hadn't noticed that at the time. No relation, lol. I'll probably end up changing my location semi-frequently at any rate!

4or5Magicians – well, they were on a Magical Mystery Toura-hard-days-night-george-10

How ironic, AG, my baby sister was 45 last May, being almost exactly a year older, I passed 46 the day after (we have one day a year when we're both the same age!).

Oops, I didn't write that out very well. a-hard-days-night-ringo-12ahdn_paul_01 I turned 45 in April. I "met" the Beatles, 5 weeks and 2 days later on 26 May.

But, that is a neat thing to learn about you and your sister. heart That means you and I spend at least a few days each year as the same age. But, you are light-years older than me in Beatles-knowledge age. You continue to impress me to no end.

Just spotted this thread, so after making a few posts now thought it apt to say "hello". I stumbled across this place when doing a bit of research, glad I did. 

I'm Alex and I'm a Beatleholic. No matter how much I embrace other musicians, I always come back to The Fabs. 

As you have probably sussed out, I play drums, although not in public for a while. I'm a sound professional working mainly in TV and am dabbling in a bit of writing when between jobs.

So there you go – great place with some really knowledgeable people – Hi!

Thank you! I was born in Liverpool, raised in Liverpool, work in Liverpool, live in Liverpool, and of course, my football club is Everton…. which reminds me – our game is just starting on TV…..

Hi,
I'm Catro, from Jersey in the Channel Islands. I'm 44, and been a Beatles fan since the start of 1980 since I first heard "Coming Up" by Paul McCartney.
Of course, we all know the inevitable at the end of 1980, and that cemented my Beatle-fandom ever since.

I just got a geography lesson looking up where you are from. I wasn't too far away from you last year when I was in Sainte-Mere-Eglise while on vacation.

Glad you have joined us.

Hi all, I'm Holly, 21. I just joined this forum and I haven't been on a beatles forum in quite some years (since I was mere teen). So I'm a bit rusty at all this since I've moved to tumblr. But I'm currently a film major in college at Columbia College which is in chicago. I study directing and screenwriting and I hope to move out to L.A. within the next couple of years (fingers crossed!) and George Harrison is my favorite Beatle with John Lennon coming in a close second, but I love them all equally. I've been a fan since I was 13 and had a massive crush on George Harrison whilst growing up so I have a bit of (bit? more like a huge) a soft spot for him. Also I love writing and reading and films and especially old classic films, and I've recently gotten super in television & loved shows such as Breaking Bad, Mad Men, etc. I used to play the Oboe for about 10 years but stopped after I graduated high school and pursued other interests. So yes I can read music even though it's been a long time haha. So I've always been strongly interested in music and The Beatles were a major influence on me and are a major part of my life and who I am. So yeah, if you ever want to chat or follow me on tumblr just let me know! <3

You know, I actually applied and got accepted to Columbia back when I was doing college searching (I'm from the Chicago area).  I ended up not going for financial reasons, transportation reasons, and because I wanted to go to school out-of-state.  Welcome.

I'm Necko.  I'm like Ringo except I wear necklaces.

Thanks for the welcome! Saint-Mere-Eglise is pretty near to Jersey. Just a boat ride from Port Bail!

Hello everybody!  I'm Steven from New York, and I'm a relatively new Beatles fan at the age of 14.  The first songs by the four that I heard when I was younger (so much younger than today) were "Hello, Goodbye", "Yellow Submarine", and "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds" (Don't ask me where I heard that last one, but it was definitely familiar to me when I listened to it more recently).  I first started listening to The Beatles in early 2013.  Before that, I never really listened to music and if you played "Hey Jude" for me, I wouldn't have known who the heck it was by, but now, I've become obsess…-I mean familiar-with their music and plenty of trivia and such.  I started off listening to them by downloading a few songs on iTunes and listening with some Apple ear buds.  Now I own the 2009 stereo remasters on CD and I recently acquired the mono box set, along with a decent set of speakers.  Since learning about The Beatles and music in general, I've come to appreciate the music of the past, and I've grown quite fond of many other artists including Dylan, Berry, Presley, Hendrix, The Stones, The Who, and more.  Anyway, I've listed some of my Beatle-favorites below.

Favorite Album: Abbey Road or Sgt. Pepper, although I love Revolver and The White Album too

Favorite Song: A Day In The Life

Favorite Beatle: It's hard to say.  For me, it's the combination of John, Paul, George, and Ringo, and their individual talents, that made The Beatles great.  Despite this, if I had to pick one, it would be the quiet one since I very much enjoy George's guitar playing and his sometimes overlooked/underrated songwriting.
