Listening to my iPod on shuffle during my morning commute, I heard Chicago (when they were know as Chicago Transit Authority) doing "Southern California Purples."  In the song they quote a line from "I Am The Walrus" (I am he as you are he as you are me and we are all together), which I'd forgotten about until that moment.

So while that was still sinking in, the next song that shuffled up?  No, "I Am The Walrus" would have been just a bit too perfect.  But it was the Beatles -- "Here Comes The Sun."

It's gotta be rock and roll music if you wanna dance with me

I was watching the news yesterday and they had Paperback Writer in the background during an item on a criminal who now wants to write columns for magazines.

Also, I saw a trailer of some movie of which the name I have forgotten, and they used What Is Life by George in the trailer.

I was in a pub for a drink with some friends today, and first this weird cover of I Want To Hold Your Hand was played. It was an a capella choir-ish version. And then a few songs later Jealous Guy was being played. 

Love this pub already.

I read the news today Oh Boy.

My government is honouring Yoko Ono for her efforts and donations to the victims of the recent typhoon. The article even mentioned John Lennon being a Beatle Legend.

Another article from the same newspaper mentioned the Beatles twice, there were young female models that were helping revive the mod thread. They were asked about stuff they like from the 60's. The Beatles were mentioned twice.

I was at a traffic light and there were these four guys crossing. They slowed down and were walking in a single file. I thought to myself "are they seriously doing what I think they're doing?" and just then my husband said "This is the highway, not
Abbey Road!". I'm glad I wasn't the only one thinking this. lol

I've seen countless of people doing this on every road possible, even if it's not a zebra road. I always tell the third guy to remove the shoes lol.

I've seen like one or two people (at a time) do it, but never four. I try to at my school's cross walk sometimes, but then I always end up speeding up cause the driver is impatient or I don't want to look weird. a-hard-days-night-paul-3

That quote from Paul cracks me up. a-hard-days-night-john-6

 I was at the drive thru ATM at my bank when a truck pulled up behind me playing "I'm Only Sleeping" loudly. I got excited and started mouthing the words as I pressed the buttons on the machine. Its not that often I hear songs like that played in public.

The first entry of todays BBC Live Football Text

 

The BeatlesImage Enlarger

Back in 1962, Ringo Starr was busy joining the Beatles, Marilyn Monroe was found dead in her bed and the Cuban Missile Crisis was in full swing. But they weren't the only noteworthy events that year. Oh no. Because while those stories were dominating the worlds of showbiz and politics, Rochdale were making waves in English football by becoming the first fourth-tier team to reach the League Cup final. The next team to achieve that feat? Bradford City, 51 years later.

A comforting sight to behold. Strange that i can identify when and where that photo is from.a-hard-days-night-ringo-14

(Just noticed that 901 people gave that vid the thumbs down - What!!!!!!!!!!???????? Probably not enough autotune, fake instruments, embarrassing lyrics, squeaky singing, and not having 20 repeats of the chorus to make it last 4 minutes.)

"Please don't bring your banjo back, I know where it's been..  I wasn't hardly gone a day, when it became the scene..  Banjos!  Banjos!  All the time, I can't forget that tune..  and if I ever see another banjo, I'm going out and buy a big balloon!"

Watching the hockey game on TV in between posts here (go Leafs go!) and suddenly they start playing "Helter Skelter" in the arena!

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

Nice, I don't see a lot of Leafs fans around here.  My Grandma was a big fan.  a-hard-days-night-john-1

I think it's George, John, Ringo, Paul, like on the cover of...err..one of their albums (was it Beatles For Sale?) It even has George's hair looking like an onion, like on the cover!

 

Was watching the same news as the last time I posted about the news, and this time they played Drive My Car during an item on a guy who reached the million on his odometer with his car today. I think the guy who sorts out the music for that news program might be a Beatles fan.
