I thought about posting this thought in the "You know you're a hardcore Beatles fan when…" but it doesn't really fit in that category. Here is the "Beatley Moment" that happened to me on my way to work this morning.

I'm driving along, listening to Anthology 3, and came upon a scene where an accident must have just happened. These two idiots were arguing in the middle of the road and blocking rush hour traffic. Just as I thought to myself, "do these idiots really need to be doing this in the road?", guess which song started to play?

I was driving once and listening to my iPod and I Am The Walrus came on and suddenly the volume starting fluctuating up and down, so I thought it was pretty freaky. It actually meant that my iPod was becoming defective, but at the time I just thought John Lennon was messing with me or something. I'm sure I've had more moments, but that's the only one I can remember right now.

Oh goodness! That made me gigglesnort just a wee bit.
Something similar happened to me. I was walking along with my best friend on the footpath to the bus stop and we were saying how we need to do the macarena (that's one of our silly traditions) and then she suggested "Why don't we do it in the road?". She then realised what she had just sparked and then right at that moment on my iPhone, that song came on.

You all will have read that Dave Dee is no longer with us. But Mickey and Titch and I would like to carry on the good work that's always gone down in number two.

One of my Beatley Moments I have experienced recently was when I was talking to a good friend of mine about the weather (as you do).

It was raining, and I was complaining (rhyme). However, she disagreed. When explaining why she liked the rain, she pretty much recited the lyrics to 'Rain' by the Beatles. I told her this, and she had never heard of the song before. Weird!


I had something like this happen to me once. It was in the middle of a group convo on MSN, and the topic somehow turned onto Paul. I forgot what it was that I said, but one of my friends said "Yeah, he's not half the man he used to be" as a joke. He'd never heard Yesterday... Dun dun duuun.

Ah, why do they always cancel the good shows?

 

I also have two other Beatley moments. I went to a restaurant the other day, and Besame Mucho was playing. Not The Beatles' version, though, but still.

The other one happened a few weeks ago. My class walked into music, ready to start rehearsing, our teacher pulled out the sheet music for 'Got To Get You Into My Life' and announced that we were going to learn it. This was after about two terms of asking him if we could play it, but still, it was awesome.

Yesterday in one of my choir classes we had to say our name and an interesting fact about ourself. I was the first person to go so I said my name and followed it with "and I LOOOOOOOOOVE The Beatles!" while pointing to the Beatles shirt I was wearing.  After that almost everyone included that they like/love The Beatles or that they're the greatest band ever or something like that.  Except for one kid who said he thinks The Beatles are "OKAAAAAAY" and everyone started whispering among themselves while one of my friends screams "(MY NAME), KICK HIS A**!!!!!!!" Not sure if that counts as a Beatles moment or not but it was awesome to start a Beatles love chain. <3

Written by my student's in the feedback under "Something interesting about the teacher" (I'm NOT making this up)

 

  • She (heart heart heart) the BeatleS!!! (happy face happy face)
  • She's cool because she likes the Beatles.
  • She LOVES THE BEATLES!!
  • She has a cool Beatle wallpaper in her computer.
  • We practice English with Beatles songs.
  • She likes the same music as my father.
  • She plays rockband!!!!
  • She went to a Paul McCartney concert. 
  • She knows the Imagine song!!

 

The usual feedback I get is "Her last name is American" (my Mother's last name is Freeze) or other stuff. But someone will always ALWAYS mention the Beatles  a-hard-days-night-george-8

The following people thank mithveaen for this post:

One day I was just listening to my ipod on shuffle mode and first Good Night played. And then right after that came Good Morning Good Morning.  I could not stop laughing for most of the song. Oh the fun Beatle coincidences.
