A headline on the newspaper yesterday was '
Here Comes The Sun' the temperatures are soaring to a sweltering 20C in Ireland for the next couple of days ahdn_paul_02

Also a couple of nights back I heard 'You're Going To Lose That Girl' and 'You've Got To Hide Your Love Away' on the radio. I generally hear only 'Let It Be' so some of the obscure songs such as YGTLTG was a welcome change

Seriously though, I've never heard Beatles songs on the radio, let alone common ones. But still, I rarely listen to the radio.

This might not exactly be a Beatley moment, but it was a Beatley light going off in my head.  Either Paul or John said "Rubber Soul" came from one of Ringo's malaprops.  I was happily driving along, listening to Revolver, when suddenly the double entendre of "Rubber Soul" hit me!  The more I know, the more lights go off in my head like this :)

ps - I wanted to cross post this to the "Rubber Soul" forum, but not knowing how, I just posted it twice (I doubt it will get any responses either place).  If someone wants to teach me how to cross post (and, how to quote more than one person in a post like @Mr. Kite did above), would you please pm me?  Thanks :)

Half of what I say is meaningless... I feel good in a special way, I'm in love and it's a sunny day BeatlesBible.com earns royalties if you use these links when shopping: Amazon | iTunes

If I spoke prose you'd all find out, I don't know what I talk about.

Can buy Joe love!

Old article on Los Angeles that starts with a quote from John.

I don't usually see him described as a "supposedly nice guy."

Check out my fan video for Paul's song "Appreciate" at Vimeo or YouTube.

Posting on @Ahhh Girl's behalf:

The cashier at the Hard Rock Cafe shop in Rome said her favorite Beatles song is Hey Jude. She also loves Across The Universe. I showed her the BB on my phone. She thanked me for the information.

Flowers In The Dirt is the second from the bottom on the right side. (Two pictures - the wall of albums with FID and the close up of FID).

Ohhhhhhhhh, it got better. Without me saying a thing, the hostess sat us at the table right under this picture. (Picture of Beatles on donkeys and the picture of the hostess with the Beatles picture.)

They have one of John Lennon's coats. (Picture of coat and the description sign that goes with it.)

Ringo got a spot! (Picture of Ringo case.)

Here are two other Beatles-related items in HRC Rome. (Abbey Road picture and Lennon pictures.)

The donkey pic is from Weston-super-Mare in July 1963 where the Beatles were on residency for a week.

A bit of googling finds that the boot is from the Help! film. John took it home and was pictured at Kenwood with it.
