On a tv programme called Outnumbered, after a clip of the group landing in America in February 1964 is on their tv, Ben (the second oldest child) is asked which Beatle is his favourite and replies 'Ringo Starr, because he's called Ringo Starr".

 

The Beatles are so pesky in turning up in so many darn places.

Another McCartney joke. From Maclean's Scott Feschuck:

Q: I’ve lost my will to live. Also, I am stabbing at my own ears with a penknife. What’s happening to me?
A: You appear to be suffering from the common seasonal malady known as “Listening to
Paul McCartney’s Wonderful Christmastime.” December brings a pandemic of this excruciating condition, which flares up while walking around the mall or scanning the radio dial. Once lodged in the brain, the horrible lyrics and cheesy synthesizer riff can linger for days, causing severe crankiness and the thought that maybe Lennon wrote more Beatles songs than we’ve been led to believe. There is no known cure for Wonderful Christmastimosis. However, in a landmark ruling on the song, the tribunal at The Hague recently conferred on anyone encountering the former Beatle the legal right to punch him one (1) time in the nuts—along with two (2) shin kicks for Ebony and Ivory.

The following people thank mr. Sun king coming together for this post:

Wonderful Christmastime is excellent. Happy Xmas (War is Over) on the other hand, is naive, droning and bland.

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.

Well, we all have "brain farts." I think the nut-punch might be a bit much, though.

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

a-hard-days-night-john-7 Are you serious my lad?

 

Naive, sure: "war is over if you want it", but it's still trutful. If nobody wanted war, there will be no war. Of course, I don't think this song will have an effect to anyone who isn't a pacifist already... But why bland?

Its melody is nothing special, the children singing is just cringeworthy and for a Lennon song, it's just really weak.

I agree with the child choir. It's awful.  But the melody... I think he "robbed" it somewhere? *looks up* Ahh. Stewball it is. So can't blame him for that! Although I do love it. And it being weak for a Lennon song, I actually agree with that as well (although there are much weaker, too)

At school, we had a Christmas party thing, and I walked in the room and my teacher had on Pandora radio (wasn't The Beatles), and she looked at me and said "I'll change the station for you." So Paperback Writer came on 😀 And at math, they had on the radio with Christmas songs when suddenly "Another Girl" came on. Everybody looked at me and said "It's The Beatles!" They were watching for my expression, which was unfortunate because I was having some sort of a weird facial spasm.

I am very happy, and one reason is because I have The Beatles. Thank you!!!! <3 <3 <3 <3

I went to the Dakota  and the Imagine mosaic in Strawberry Fields yesterday. Very surreal and cold (it was really windy). I thought I would start crying, but I didn't. I really didn't need my mascara running down my face in the middle of the street. The Dakota is actually a very gorgeous building despite the murder. You can ask my friend, but I was very close to yelling Yoko to see if she would come out (Realize I didn't know if she was actually there or not). Thank God I was smart enough not to.
