While running errands today, I was playing the Band on the Run album. After my wife chuckled at the "maniacal laughter" at the end of Mrs. Vandebilt, I started telling her how cool all the little noises are that appear in Beatles songs. I could say at that point a large white bird flew right across our windshield and startled us. But noooooooooo. That just wouldn't do. So here goes...

Me: ...and in Tomorrow Never Knows, they sped up a tape of Paul laughing until it sounded just like a -

Mrs. Zig: Seagull!

I love how she finishes my sentences.

Why does everyone say it's a seagull? I hear a monkey. 

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

Is that that noise?  I always wondered what that was, but never bothered to look it up.

Then again, even though I live in Utah, where the seagull is the state bird, I've never heard a seagull.

I think, and could be really mistaken, that the seagull has some sort of special significance with the Mormon Church.

We were in the car once, and I Want To Hold Your Hand came up on the radio. Mum started singing along to it.

And once when I was playing Back In The USSR on Beatles Rock Band, my dad walked in and said "You know, this is the first song I ever learned on guitar". +200 awesome points.

Oh, and when I first got my bass (a Hofner, of course), my mum asked me to play a song on it. I started playing All My Loving, and she sang along.

Last one (I promise): My brother mentioned something about Paul being a shit bass player (BLASPHEMY), and then my sister told him he was an idiot, and said that he was the best player of the 60s, and how his playing has influenced generations of bassists. Oh, and he also said something along the lines of "Clearly you didn't need to be good looking to be famous back in the 60s" while motioning at the Beatles frame I have up on my wall. 

I don't know how I put up with him.a-hard-days-night-ringo-13

Not sure if this qualifies as a beatley moment..

 

But once I dropped my son at the daycare and he was wearing his Beatles T-shirt. His new teacher giggled when she saw him and was surprised that I'm a Beatles fan.. turned out she's from Liverpool and she gained my instant admiration :D

I thought it was a cool coincidence that my teacher's son is from Liverpool, and I don't even live in Europe! a-hard-days-night-george-6

 

Wait till I send him in his cool Yellow Submarine T-Shirt (which I hope I can stretch enough to fit me a-hard-days-night-paul-6)

Do I have to keep on talking till I can't go on!

This is a 2-parter.

Last night while watching one of my favorite TV shows; one of the characters (a bit of a conspiracy theorist) said “oh sure – next, you’re going to tell me that Paul McCartney wasn’t replaced by an imposter after he died in 1966”.

This morning while watching ESPN’s Sportscenter; they were showing highlights of a basketball game in which one of the players, Chris Paul, made a very tough shot. As the video showed the shot going through the basket, the anchor man yelled, “…and Paul is alive!”

The debate rages on (he said, tongue firmly implanted in cheek).

a-hard-days-night-paul-8 or maybe a-hard-days-night-paul-2?

 

*12 + 12 - I kid you not - this is geting downright spooky*
