I then went on a huge Youtube marathon and listened to every Beatles song I came across.

Totally awesome story. The Beatles just keep roping them in. Glad you found the Fab Four … and us!

Love your screen name!!!!

I agree.  Great name and great avatar.

I think the Texas cowboy liked the roping analogy.

Trippyflower, I think of this every time I see your name "Everyone smiles as you drift past the flowers / That grow so incredibly high."

Here are the first 5 songs on Paul's set list for that concert I attended that changed my life: Eight Days A Week, Junior's Farm, All My Loving, Listen to What the Man Said, Roll It. By the time song 6 started playing, I had awoken to Paul McCartney, and through him, to the Beatles. So, the song that *really, really, really* grabbed me, shook me, and hooked me was .... Paperback Writer. I didn't know until later that Paul had the different phases of his career and that Paperback Writer was a Beatles song. Anyhoo, I'm counting it as my first Beatles song.

You got to see Paul McCartney?! Okay, super-jealousy mode activated!

Welcome, Mara.

You bring up a good point. Many people have heard Beatle songs without realizing their source.

In my experience at work, the song most likely to be associated with the Beatles when I ask a 20-something person to name a Beatle song is … "Yellow Submarine."

This is why when people say that it's a very weak song, I answer, "Look at the impact that it has had!"

"Into the Sky with Diamonds" (the Beatles and the Race to the Moon – a history)

The first Beatles song I remember hearing was a cover of "Hello, Goodbye" in a TV commercial from around 2006 or so, and I heard "Yellow Submarine" sometime when I was younger, as did many other people.  Also, interestingly enough, I can remember hearing "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds" from when I was around eight or nine, though I can't remember where.
