I remember George saying 'Blimey, he's always talking about “Yesterday”, you'd think he was Beethoven or somebody' - Paul McCartney

All Together Now is the track the BBC are using for their summer trailer, starting with the Diamond Jubillee and i presume until the  Olympics are over.

The Beatles will feature at the Olympics in some way, especially as its the 50th anniversary, as well as the Jubilee Concert what with Paul being there. The Beatles do keep bringing the tourists and are one of the things that tourists associate with the UK.

I heard that too! I thought I heard all together now playing in the lounge and I ran in and it was on the summer trailer.

You know, even though I've been gone awhile, there are only a few things that spring to mind.

1. One of my friends is going to LOVE, I congratulated him, of course.

2. We're going to see Ringo! 

3. When one of my youth leaders asked why I was bothering with getting pulled out of camp to go see Ringo (we pulled a similar stunt with Polythene Dan when we saw Paul), saying "He's not even the original drummer!" I was very quick to give my reasons. (I did not tell him that I thought of Sun king.) Of course, he then displayed his ignorance by saying, "The original drummer only got kicked out because he broke his arm!" We exchanged several words after that, but I was able to convince him of le facts. 

4. This one should be relatable to the younger posters. (The ones who are young enough to have been mocked in junior high for liking the Beatles) As you probably know, I was mocked for liking the Beatles. So imagine my surprise in my history class when I saw one of the same girls who mocked me in junior high with a Beatles notebook! Not a Beatles quote, but those (*cough*Sun king*cough*) who are "loners" (musically, at least) can definitely tell the jerks, "Time is on my side!"

5. Recently I wore my Beatles shirt to an activity. One of my acquaintances asked me if I was a Beatles fan. The exchange went something like this:

Person: "Do you like the Beatles?"

Me: "Yeah, I'm a huge fan." 

Person: "Like a hipster?"

Me: "Huh?"

Fellow Beatles Fan Who Was Standing Nearby: "He means like someone who would say, 'I love the Beatles! Mick Jagger is my favorite!'"

Me: "No, not like a hipster. More like second-top poster on a Beatles forum."

6. I'm gonna be 17 tomorrow! a-hard-days-night-george-10 Or should I celebrate with Paul? a-hard-days-night-paul-8

7. Don't you just love finding Beatles references in random daily stuff?  (Note: the strip title is "V Was Only Waiting for this Moment to Arise.")

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

Slightly irritating moment yesterday:
I was out of town, and the radio station was talking about Paul playing the Olympics, or whatever. I'm only half listening, and then they play the Beatles. Makes sense, right? They play
Nowhere Man. Me and my mom both still can't get over the stupidity.

Things like this have happened to me a few times, it's almost unreal how these DJ's who are supposed to know about music can be so stupid sometimes.

Moving along in our God given ways, safety is sat by the fire/Sanctuary from these feverish smiles, left with a mark on the door.

Meh, they did it all the time to John :).

John was in a restaurant once when the violinist recognised him and procedeed to play Yesterday, John wasnt amused but couldnt say anything.

It happens often with John and Paul and their beatles songs, worse still some folks online say Imagine is a beatles song, the height of all stupidity and ignorance.

I had another Beatley moment. I was reading recipes and there was one that was "Lennon Cakes." I thought 'Hmm...why would you make John Lennon Cakes, what would even be in them?' Then I realized it said lemon........
