I have just converted another person to Beatleism mwahahaha! I was on Omegle yesterday talking to a 16 year old who lives in North-East England and they didn't know a lot about The Beatles only what they knew from their music class. So I told him to listen to Abbey Road and while he was listening to it, he was telling me about how awesome the tracks are ahdn_george_08He's going to listen to Rubber Soul today, making people into Beatles fans one person at a time

In English Class, I had to write something, so I decided to write about the Beatles. I finished the first couple chapters (1957-1963), and I made the teacher read it. In the middle of reading it, she lifted up her head to me and said, "Do you want to join me band?"

My favourite song is 'Stairway to Heaven' by Motley Crue on their 1876 album 'Yellow Submarine'.

Chapters?! How many pages is that?

A bunch, but I wanted to keep it brief so I could fit the entire Beatles' story in my writing book, so about 3 pages each chapter, so that is like, 15 pages so far, methinks.

My favourite song is 'Stairway to Heaven' by Motley Crue on their 1876 album 'Yellow Submarine'.

Damn! Is it double spaced? I could never have the patience to write anything that long; the longest I have done was an eight page paper on Auschwitz, and that was a terrible drag!ahdn_paul_01

I just noticed that the title of Beatle songs often end up as headlines... there was also this smartphone case labelled: "Britpop". And good thing it had a silhouette of the Abbey Road silhouette, and not some other band.

"When I was a robber *Piano Chord* in Boston Place"
"Let's hope this turns out pretty darn good huh"
"Pete may be the best, but Ringo is the star"
Paul:"Don't be nervous John"
John:"I 'm not"

Yesterday in my Chorus class, we started learning a Beatles medley! :) Then, the teacher showed the class a video of Ticket To Ride, and she paused the video when it showed a close-up of George and asked us who it was. Of course, my hand shot up in the air, and she told me that I knew too much about The Beatles and she wanted to see if anybody else knew. Only a few people raised their hands. She said, "Is it John Lennon?" and everyone said "No." The same thing happened for Paul and Ringo, and then she said, "Well, who is it?" and, besides me, my friend was the only person who knew the answer, probably because of me. Then I said, "He's my favorite!" and the teacher jokingly said, "Oh, do you think he's sexy?" and I said "Um..."

I really wish that we spoke more (well, at all) about The Beatles in my music class at school. In fact, I wish we spoke about any band that has had great influence on posterior music, or society, such as The Beatles. The reason for this is that in my year, I know of one person, one, who likes any other music apart from the club kind of music that is popular today, and that's a boy in my class who is a Led Zeppelin fan. I'm not saying that I wish we were all Beatles fans, but I think it's important to educate people on how music, good music, has influenced so many different things.

I'd love beatley moments like that one a-hard-days-night-ringo-8to happen.

So I was at the cinema today, because I applied for a job and today I had the interview.

THIS was hanging on the wall across from me.

 

So I was already grinning like an idiot. The girl who was waiting too looked at me like I was insane.

But that wasn't the only thing. They had cheesy music on which made it all a bit ridiculous. Then Besamo Mucho started playing. Not the Beatles version, but still.

I was on a website and there was an ad for a funny T-shirt website. I clicked on it and looked at the shirts. One of them had two people on a trampoline. One person was up in the air and the other was on the trampoline like they had just landed. The T-shirt said "I get high With A Little Help From My Friends."

Check out the "Beatle songs and lyrics in the media" thread in this ("Yesterday... and Today") section - I think that's what you're referring to, no?

I was talking to my dad's wife, and I told her how Paul's doing another world tour this summer, and if he comes anywhere remotely close, I'm definitely going, and she was like, "He's too old, nobody wants to see a crusty old man like that. He should just retire already." So I told her that Paul isn't just some "crusty old man," he's Paul McCartney; the most talented musician alive, and practically the cutest old guy ever! Then, she told me that Paul McCartney ISN"T A CUTE OLD PERSON! I mean, I didn't mind too much when she called him crusty and said nobody wants to see him, but her saying my Paulie isn't cute was going a little too far!paul-mccartneypaul-mccartney

 

I'm pretty sure she was only saying that to be mean to me, but it's still a little upsetting. He's too cute, how could anybody even pretend otherwise?!

How does she explain the sold out tours? ahdn_paul_01

I was watching one of those lifestyle shows that get aired only in the wee hours, and they were profiling a Chicago-based food truck for dogs called Fido To Go, and the owner said, "We're like The Beatles to dogs, so their tails are always wagging." a-hard-days-night-ringo-12

I'm more offend that she called him crusty. lol. That maybe because every time I hear crusty old man, I think of my crusty old manager. *shivers* Paul is a old man type of cute.

 

Yesterday, I was at my mother-in-law's place. My husband's cousin's husband added me to facebook the night before and yesterday was the first time he met me. He said "yea I saw you change your profile pic to The Beatles and all this Beatle stuff." And at the same time we both said "I love The Beatles". Then he goes on to say "I seen where you went see Ringo. Thats so cool." Then we got on the subject of how we wish we could see Paul. Yay, I'm not the only Beatle geek in the family.

I just heard I'll Keep You Satisfied on the radio today. I had a feeling that it was a Lennon-McCartney composition and I was right! I've been listening to the Beatles too much that I know their sound.

^^ Good catch.

This morning I was trying to remember the name of an old skit that used to air on KROQ, the radio station I listen to in the morning, and I came across this blog on the very first song ever played on the station, which was "Revolution." It's a cool story of the transition from one format to the other.

As soon as I saw the blurred-out photo, of course I recognized the lads.

Here in Boston one the local sports talk radio stations yesterday was discussing a promising rookie player on our baseball team, the Boston Red Sox (yesterday was the season's opening day) and a caller called in to say this kid was going to be "the Beatles of the team" because everyone was going crazy over him during spring training. The hosts then spent a few minutes discussing "which Beatle would he be? and who was the best one?" I had to go with one of the hosts on this one...he said they were all great, but Paul was the best...the other host said he agreed they were all great, but "Ringo?" and the first one said "listen to the drumming on Sgt. Pepper, he was amazing!" (couldn't agree more!). They both also said that John was the typical choice for casual fans, and George was the choice for "hipsters," which made me :lol:

"I know you, you know me; one thing I can tell you is you got to be free!"
