My mom is moving this month, and I went to her place to look through a bunch of stuff I had left there when I moved out 11 years ago.  She had found some old records and told me I could take what I want and the rest would go to the thrift store.  The first one I see is the "Kiss Kiss Kiss/(Just Like) Starting Over" single... then I find "With The Beatles".. then "Twist And Shout" (Canadian release, which is basically "Please Please Me")...  then "Abby Road"!  I was so ridiculously excited, especially seeing as those are all Beatles albums I don't yet own on vinyl!  a-hard-days-night-john-6heartheartheart

"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!"

Just came back from Germany so I've got a good few Beatley moments:

I heard Ringo's "You're Sixteen" on the radio.

I saw a lady wearing a John & Yoko "Bed in for Peace" t-shirt.

I also saw a kid wearing a Beatles 1969 t-shirt

I saw a Beatles magazine in the train station for €12 :O (and apparently Elvis still has a fan magazine going on, who knew?)

We're going through a heat wave in Ireland at the moment and my neighbours and I often have a music off, where we play songs at each other from the different sides of the hedge that is dividing us, yesterday he played Come Together.

I also heard a really crappy cover version of "Here Comes The Sun" played on the radio.

There is a John Lennon look-a-like walking around my town at the moment, everyday I see him!

 

And in other good news: I was in a bookshop yesterday and saw the Beatles live at the star club '62 for €4. To say I snatched that CD off the stand is an understatement. I also got tons of Beatles CDs and a John music video CD while I was in the fabulously-cheap Deutschland (I wasn't in Hamburg though was in Frankfurt a-hard-days-night-john-7Ah well when I'm 17 I might be working in Germany for the Summer so I'll do a weekend trip down to Hamburg

Another Beatley moment that I forgot:

My brother is in French college at the moment and one of the boys living in his dorm is called Paul McCartney :D

I know 2 John Lennon's anyways (they're father and son) so here's a question:

If you have a child whose surname is Lennon/McCartney/Harrison/Starkey is it cruel to call them John/Paul/George/Richard?

That's so weird! Always makes me wonder if their parents deliberately called them like that or didn't think of the Beatles and just chose that name because they liked it. 

I saw a 6 year old (or whatever. A Little Child no older than 6) with a Yellow Submarine Shirt. I wanted to tell him he had an awesome shirt but I thought that'd be a bit creepy.

There was a guy in my year at school called George Harrison. Weirdly, nobody really mentioned it.

Lennon and Harrison are old-Irish family surnames(like my surname) so there are plenty of them hanging around, John was always a popular name with boys, George not so much (being a stereotypical British name) and as I said above some names e.g "John Lennon" are passed down from father-son so it's not very weird in Ireland, I know now if somebody in my school (aged around 12-18) met a lad called George Harrison the majority wouldn't click the Beatles reference so it's easy for that kind of name to slide past people's minds.

Interesting fact: One of my cousins is a "Lennon" for all we know I could be related to John in some way/shape/form. To the laboratory for further research!

Interesting fact #2: Lennon in Irish "Ó Leannáin" means lover :)

Not actually naming their kid McCartney, but there's this story of a fan who'd changed her name to McCartney.

Check out my fan video for Paul's song "Appreciate" at Vimeo or YouTube.

A boy who looked about 13 was wearing a very cool b&w Let It Be T-Shirt in Glasgow this morning. I wonder if two people who don't know each and both wearing Beatle t-shirts saw each other in the street would pass along their appreciation. They really should.
