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


I would have done something very mean to him if he was my brother... Saying Paul wasn't good looking is like saying I am a flying car. Not true.

My Beatley (I love that word!) moments, would have to be I was at school one day and my friend who sits at the table at lunch with me (a fellow Beatlemaniac) pointed and said,"Look at her shirt!" I turned to see where she was pointing, to see a teacher wearing a shirt with the "Let it Be" cover on it. I was very happy, and when I threw away my trash I walked over to her and told her I liked her shirt, A LOT. 

Another one, is when I was sitting at the dinner table at home and the "Let it Be" iTunes commercial for the Beatles came on (wow, alot of my moments has food involved XD). My dad pointed to the TV when John was shown and said,"He was a great songwriter." My mom looked a little bit later when Paul was on and asked,"Paul McCartney?" To which my dad replied,"Yeah, John Lennon too." My sister, who listens to odd music, joked around saying,"Who are they?"  I almost slapped her. I began to lecture her on how they were the greatest band in history and asked how she didn't know who they were. She then said she was joking, which was a big relief. I almost had a fit.

Another one, which I have already posted on a different post, was about how I got my teacher to play Beatles music one day during class. When she went over to the thingy to plug her iPod in to play it surround sound, she must've forgotten that the volume was VERY LOUD, and the first song on shuffle was Help!, and I can swear to you that even the people downstairs could hear,"HELP! I NEED SOMEBODY!" I was laughing so hard. On the same day, a girl went up to my teacher and begged her to play the already over-played Glee version of "Don't Stop Believin'" (a-hard-days-night-ringo-14) after lunch. Then "Let it Be started to play (Also, alot have to do with Let it Be! Very strange.) and everyone began to say,"Wow! I love this song!" and,"Can you play this again after lunch?" Let's just say, there was no Glee after lunch. :) Best day ever. (I also got another person to like the Beatles too!) Wow, I have a lot of Beatley moments...

Today in one of my classes, my professor starts playing Hey Jude before class. I had to restrain myself from singing in front of 242 students. But on the inside I was singing at the top of my lungs. By him playing that song, it ended up brightening up my day.

I don't see the "feminine." 

In other news...

When I was walking home for lunch, I had my favorite side-two medley from the last studio album of my favorite group in my head. When I got into my house, I was in the middle of "The End." Our stereo was on pause and I pressed play, and "The End" started playing from the place I was in my head.

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

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.

 

*17*


 My Beatly moment occurred when I started reading this post, and just as I was reading "Seagull!" the seagull sounds from Tomorrow Never Knows (which is currently playing on my ipod) played.

  My brother and I have had a few times where we've been discussing the songs in the car ride to work and we'd turn on the oldies channel and the songs we were just talking about would be on. Also I just want to use this face because it cracks me up: a-hard-days-night-ringo-6

And in the end the love you take is equal to the love you make.
