So cute! :)

I know the second one is John... but which of the other ones is which?

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!

Oh, I see it now! Thanks! :)

Was sad today so I had to speak in Beatle lyrics for the whole day, which I luckily managed.

Local news telly told me a politician is using the "Beatles' tune: Imagine" to campaign. This made me even sadder, first Imagine is not a Beatles song. And second who would use "Imagine" as a campaign jingle.

In anticipation of our 40th High School reunion this year, every Friday I've been posting "40 years ago" YouTube clips to our class Facebook page.  This week's entry is Dark Side of the Moon, and in my post I said "40 years ago today, yes today, this one hit the streets."

Immediately after writing "yes today" and in the hours since, I've been quietly singing, "Yes today, all my troubles seem so far away..." and so on.  I'm probably never going to hear "Yesterday" the same way again. 

What would you call a reverse-mondegreen...where you got the lyric correct at the start and then something happens to alter your perception of the words and you start getting them wrong forever?  (I have the same problem with "Secret Agent Man" in that the first time I heard someone mention thinking the lyric is "Secret Asian Man" it switched tracks in my brain and now it's always "Asian" to me.)

"Reverse-mondegreen" sounds wrong.  Maybe "acquired mondegreen syndrome?"

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

Today I was watching Full House the episode where Danny's car gets ruined. At one point when talking about the car he says "obadi obada life goes on". At the end of the episode when he gets a new car and is taking a drive with the family, a cover of "Drive My Car" is playing.

I just started classes the other day. At my school we have trimesters instead of semesters. Anyways, in one of my classes there are three Michelles.

"Hi, Hi, Hi" being played earlier today in the Snowbird, Utah ski lodge.

Unexpected in a state where you can barely get a drink.

 

("Secret Agent Man"? One of my faves)

"Into the Sky with Diamonds" (the Beatles and the Race to the Moon – a history)

I'm watching ''The Best of Idols Worldwide'' right now, and apparently there was a Beatles episode on American Idol once? They had to sing If I Fell and it was truly horrible, they couldn't even sing it. Later they had to sing Hello Goodbye and it sounded as if it was from Glee or something.

OK, I was watching Charlie Chaplin's "Monsieur Verdoux" (1947) last night, and I was amused to hear him utter the line "Martha, my dear!" And I kept watching, thinking how great a Beatley Moment it would make if I kept track of all the other White Album song titles that were mentioned during the film. Here's the ones I got:

Martha My Dear
Revolution
Birthday
Good Night
I'm So Tired
I Will
The Continuing Story Of Bungalow Bill

Ok, I made that last one up! The rest were all real though.
Man, I lead a boring life!

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

"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!"

One of my friends posted on facebook about the video game: 999: Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors

All I think about was Revolution 9.

I was looking for The Beatles of Family Guy on youtube and I found the this along the way:

apparently someone I subscribe to commented on it. I don't even think its a Beatle related subscription.

Every few hours the bells of the churches start ringing and they often ring a song. One of them, close to the school I used to go to (this is why I know) does Hey Jude sometimes! I just remembered that. It's weird cause the songs they ring are not popsongs. They're often just nursery rhymes so it's pretty awesome. Especially since this is a small shithole.
