Okay, so I've been crazy with the LJ communities ever since I found capslock_beatle and I found this one rather interesting.  It's called BeatleSecret and can be found here.

Basically, people post pictures with things that they think or feel about their Beatlemania (and that of the people around them) that they're afraid to openly say (IE: 'I Love Yoko', 'Ringo was my favourite', etc etc.)

It was an interesting read, so I thought I'd share.  Have any secrets of your own? a-hard-days-night-ringo-6

You mean that you have a secret about being a Beatle fan? Umb………………….. not really. I mean, pretty much everybody knows I love the Beatles. Even my students write in Teacher's Evaluation comments "The teacher loves the Beatles!!"

 

Maybe that when I was a kid, I wanted to be married with George Harrison. And now I wish I could play drums or guitar to play their songs.

 

Edit : Now I remember!! When I was a kid I wanted to be part of their entourage!! I hated doing errands for my family so when I was sent to the supermarket to buy something, I remember taking my walkman and I used to imagine "I'm buying this can of tuna to Ringo" LOL!!! That was quite silly I must say.

My (partial) Beatle secret is this site. Although all of my close friends know about it, loads of people I know more casually have no idea I spend all my time being a Beatlegeek. It's quite funny when someone I know makes a throwaway comment on Facebook like "Just rediscovering Abbey Road - great album!" and I have to resist the urge to start telling them loads of random facts than only an obsessive would care about.

If you did that as a kid, it is perfectly understandable. If you still do that today, it is a secret you could have kept to yourself. a-hard-days-night-george-5
As for me, I have no Beatle secrets. When I'm listening to the lads, everybody knows what song, how I feel about it and the fact that I can't sing worth crap and just plain don't care.

Beatle secrets? Well I sort of have one.

At the beginning of last year when I just got into the Beatles, I had a huge poster of the Hard Day's Night album cover. My friend dared me to "make-out" with each of the faces. Well, how could I refuse the dare? I simply did so.....a-hard-days-night-paul-8

I'd wear them now if I could find a pair.

Have a look at http://www.beatwear.co.uk/

I bought a pair from a Liverpool-based mail-order company back in the 90s – it may even have been the same people. They really didn't suit me – I'm 6' tall and with the Cuban heels and pointed toes it made me look like I was wearing high heels. I sent them back for a refund. a-hard-days-night-paul-7

I love some of the clothes that site sells. I could do with a new suit – perhaps I should buy the Chesterfield, as I've been looking for a decent 60s/mod suit for a while. The black Shea Stadium jacket is very cool too.

I bought Beatle boots in 1966 and again in 1980. When I bought them in the 60's the salesman at the store called my mom at home to make sure I had permission to buy them - true story.

Oh, another one of my Beatle secrets... I boycotted Paul's solo music/Beatles songs for the first half of the summer (before the Paul concert) because whenever one of his songs ended, I got really scared.

And when Pete Quaife (the Kinks) and the bassist from that heavy metal band (I forgot what it was called) died, I FREAKED OUT and completely avoided anything related to Paul. I usually don't fall for those kind of superstitions, but geez. Two bassists down? I couldn't risk anything. a-hard-days-night-john-3

I can imagine.

 Dang! If I had Beatle boots, I'd wear them even more than I wear my high-tops.... 

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.

Before the concert my nephew was bothering me that he was not going to make it. And I said "He's a Beatle. Nothing is Beatle-proof"

And when he said "And John and George?" I said "They're not dead! They are aliens and just went home!!"

 

yeah I know this is not an argument between a 20 year old and a 40 like me but anyway.... a-hard-days-night-john-7

I am the Same way, especially when somebody asks me a question That I know like the back of my hand, I need to stop myself from screaming "How Do You not know this?" and walking away
