Got in the car to drive my son to school yesterday and Revolution was on the radio.  I cranked it up and sang along.  When I dropped him off, my boy was smiling and said "Mom..the Beatles sure make you hyper"!  Yep...guess soa-hard-days-night-john-1

"....take a sad song & make it Meilleur"....

Was in my hometown a couple of days ago and a guy was walking about wearing a t-shirt with the leaping image from the Twist And Shout EP cover. First time ever in my hometown ive ever seen any beatle clothing.

 

I hardly ever see anyone in my town with any Beatle clothing (or bags) either, but a girl from my class who also did Geography was sitting a few tables before me during the finals and she was wearing a Beatles shirt with the image of them jumping. I wanted to tell her that her shirt was awesome, but since I had never spoken a word to her I thought that would be a bit weird.

Same here. Too weird to go up to a stranger and tell him or her how awesome their t-shirt is. I do see a lot of people wearing Beatle clothing and bags in Glasgow.

Speaking of Beatles clothes, a girl at my school sometimes wears a Let It Be shirt. :)

Two more Beatley moments:

1. We've been reviewing for finals in my classes (finals start Friday! YAAAAAYYYYY! blue-meanie), and on Friday in English class, we did a poetry review. The teacher picked a few songs for us to analyze, and Imagine was one of them! :) Then, one of my friends said, "A Beatles song! Autumn, I'm sure you're happy right now." Yes, I was happy... about the song. I was not happy that I had to have a "John Lennon was a Beatle, but Imagine is not a Beatles song" conversation with her. a-hard-days-night-george-10

2. Last night, I went to my cousin's dance recital (she's a wonderful dancer, and this was her last recital because she's a senior, so she's going off to college :( ). Other people besides her performed, and there was one group of little girls who danced to Honey Pie! The girls were adorable, but the song was horrible because they turned it into a cheesy kid song and had some lady sing it. blue-meanie

I see at least one person in a Beatles shirt at school every day. There's one girl who's got a bunch of Beatles and John Lennon pins on her bag. I've been off for a week now, though.

Just found a "100 Reasons to Hate The Beatles" list. Not going to post the whole thing, but here are a few excerpts:

"59- They were too scared to release the 'butchers' sleeve." ...Not even going to say anything...

"52- They had to get Clapton in to play the solo on While My Guitar Gently Weeps cos they were all crap at guitar." a-hard-days-night-ringo-14

"39- 'Semolina pilchard dripping from a dead dog's eye...' That's just nasty. Weirdos." If you're going to insult them, at least get the lyrics right...

"21- No one wrote an academic thesis on the inner meaning of lyrics before Lennon started wittering on about 'newspaper taxis' and 'marshmallow skies.'" First of all, how can you blame them for lyrics analyses? And second... there aren't any "marshmallow skies" in any Beatles songs I can think of. Perhaps you meant marmalade skies, or possibly marshmallow pies? I know I'm being kind of picky, but seriously... get the lyrics right.

"12- Eleanor Rigby. Look if you wanna write stories for old ladies, fine. But it doesn't rock." Just... no... a-hard-days-night-ringo-14

Although this list is... atrocious, and that's putting it nicely... I actually find it amusing.

Oh, you should have posted a link, Eg-rock! The whole list is hilarious, and I think it's meant to be. I don't think Classic Rock were looking to be taken seriously!

What a ridiculous website!  They don't even present proper "facts" or reasons or whatever..  and like Egroeg pointed out, they keep getting the lyrics wrong!  Morons.

Totally reminded me of this "Sh*t Nobody Says" video @ 0:17...

SO TRUE!  The rest of the video is funny too.  a-hard-days-night-john-1

"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!"

I think that's the idea though! I think it's meant as a joke. They don't even bother to come up with a 100 reasons. The whole thing is tongue-in-cheek. You both seem to have read as if they mean it! I don't think they do. It is a joke!

Oh, I thought it was real!  Ok, it makes more sense then.  Glad it's a joke.

There are a LOT of un-educated people on the internet that spew off about things they know nothing about, so I would have not been surprised if it had been real.  paul-mccartney

My Beatley moment today was...after 2 years of NOT having a car with a CD player in it...I got myself some new (used) wheels with a brand new stereo in it.  What a treat to listen to my fav band again in the car ahdn_paul_02

I haven't heard of most of these movies... but it's still pretty awesome. :)

Liked this from the above line

Panic Room
When Meg (Jodie Foster) and her daughter Sarah (Kristen Stewart) are locked inside the 'Panic Room' from the burglars, in order to restrain herself Sarah hides in a corner and starts to chant the names of Beatles albums: "Help...Rubber Soul...Yesterday and Today...Sergeant Pepper....Magical Mystery Tour...The White Album...Let It Be..."

Ive never seen the film however surely in a panic/safe room you'd have a tv and stereo so whilst the people after you try but fail to get in you can sit down with a nice drink and some food and wait for the police to come. Might as well stick a movie on on some music to pass the time. Unless they can get in which defeats the whole point. Still doesnt make me want to see the film.

The Casbah Coffee Club was #40 on ITV's list of Britain's Secret Homes. We even got an interview with Pete Best. I wont be hanging about for number 1 for anyone wanting to know, no idea how i came across this show in the first place - the art of flicking.

The Monster University mentioned a man making the grade and that's about it for me today.

"And in the End the Love you take is equal to the Love you make"
"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"

I've always thought the lyrics went 'about a man who made the grave'. What does 'make the grade' even mean?

''We're just knocked out. We heard about the sell out. You gotta get an album out, you owe it to the people. We're so happy we can hardly count.''

Satisfy the requirements, qualify; also, succeed. For example, Angela hoped her work in the new school would make the grade, or Barbara certainly has made the grade as a trial lawyer. This expression uses grade in the sense of “accepted standard.” [c. 1900]

Oh, I see. Thanks for the explanation.

Strange I'm only finding out what the real lyric is now. I thought it was ''grave'' because he (T. Browne) did, literaly, make the grave. That's how I understood it a-hard-days-night-ringo-14

''We're just knocked out. We heard about the sell out. You gotta get an album out, you owe it to the people. We're so happy we can hardly count.''
