a-hard-days-night-paul-6I'll get to it, sorry. But I remember a long time ago, when I didn't listen to all of The Beatles albums. But I played all that my dad had A LOT OF TIMES. So we were about to go on a vacation, and I took A Hard Day's Night with me, which I strangely didn't notice before (I'm not that observant). I remember when I first heard it... WOW!!! I was blown away. I was listening to Magical Mystery Tour a lot before, so this was so different. We drove for 12 hours to go to a different part of the place once we got there, and I played A Hards Day's Night in the car for 12 hours. Just that one. Replay replay replay... it was awesome. 

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

This is more like an anti-Beatley Moment...

While in a store over the weekend, I heard "Blackbird" being sung over the PA by a lady who was singing it as a "lounge singer" would. It was really bizarre hearing it sung that way. I've never heard the lyrics "take these broken wings and learn to fly" or "take these sunken eyes and learn to see" sung so cheerfully. It reminded me of Bill Murray's lounge singer version of "Star Wars".

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.

Unexpected Beatley moment Sunday:
As I was listening to Live 88.5 (local alternative station, which I grudgingly agree is the best local station), the DJ played Rock Lobster by the B-52's. Now, I hear this song on that show every week, so nothing new. But, the DJ, after the song, relayed the story about Lennon hearing the song at a bar, calling Yoko and saying, "They're ready for you!" and subsequently recording
Double Fantasy. Now, my brother and mother never knew that, and knowing me, they asked me quite shocked why Lennon liked Rock Lobster (my brother mostly because he gets sick of the song halfway through), and was shocked that Lennon would be inspired by it, until I mentioned Yoko's work in the early years wasn't any different.

Watching vids in youtube and normally before they start you get annoying adverts for gillette and some film you never want to see so you block them out. So it was a surprise to hear a bit of With A Little Help From My Friends at the beginning (before you are able to mute the sound). Turns out it was an advert for Ringos new dvd. a-hard-days-night-ringo-2

I hate the Beatley moments when you see people at school with a Beatles shirt on and you say, "What's your favourite song?" and they say something like Hey Jude or Here Comes The Sun. Plenty of people like that are at my school...a-hard-days-night-john-3I don't try to get them to like the underrated but good songs because they have already insulted me.

I've got a good one! My family went camping in Florida last summer(it was incredibly hot) and I was listening to the Best Of 66-70 and I heard Across The Universe for the first time in like 6 years. I was in the tent with my mother, father, and best friend; they were all asleep,but I listened to Across The Universe literally 13 times in a row until I fell asleep. That was a great vacation because I had my boys with me a-hard-days-night-george-8
