While I have never stopped liking all Beatles songs, I tend to stop hearing them just for a few days or weeks then go back to hear them and the magic comes back stronger than before. This happened to A Day In The Life, my favorite song, I stopped hearing them along with the Pepper album for a few months, then went back and woof, enjoying them better than ever! a-hard-days-night-john-5

ADITL i never tire of, same with Within You, Without You. Every time i hear either its as fresh as when i first hear it but better. WYWY and Good Morning Good Morning thru to the end are quite simply stunning pieces of work and one hell of a triple run.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 Me too. Within You Without You is a jaw-dropping experience and Good Morning Good Morning is pure rock fun, and Ringo blasts this song with one of his best drummings ever, especially the ending. a-hard-days-night-ringo-6

When I first saw the title of this thread, I thought it said "Have I become Satanized to the Beatles?" And I was gonna answer that I didn't think so, although I have been listening to "Baby's In Black" and "Devil In Her Heart" over and over again. Hmm… strange.

Then, of course I re-read the title, and I get it now. And here is how I have been listening to music lately: I set my iPod on "random," whenever I am exercising or working in the yard. Since about one-fourth of all the music on my iPod is by the Beatles, together or solo, then about one out of every four random selections is a Beatles song. And naturally I like every artist on my playlist, (or they wouldn't be on the playlist), so it is like listening to my own personal radio station with no commercial interruptions. What a great way to listen to music. It all sounds very fresh that way. :)

Agree - and with that song in particular :)

Which is why I usually listen to the albums complete so I hear the less familiar along with the songs that we tend to hear all the time.  Then the solo stuff which adds immensely to the variety.

Plus I am still working through my top 10 artists - just Neil Young and Bob Dylan account for 100+ CDs so I have plenty of variety to keep the fabs fresh next time I get to them (so expect my journey from 1970 to now to take many a day).

Kind of. Since I am a big Paul McCartney fan, I get periods when I listen to Wings a lot. Kind of in that phase now. What can I say, Paul has spme good solo songs.

If children are studying the 20th century, I'm in their text books.

Just a tiny bit.

I have been Beatles fan for around 3 to 4 months now. I still listen to them everyday, it is like an addiction! In the beginning I had this strange thing that the more I listened to a Beatles song, the better it became! You'd think it would be the opposite... For example, I used to dislike "Strawberry Fields Forever" but now I sing it everyday! I am still enjoying The Beatles, I am still discovering new songs and new info. 

Just today I suddenly felt all appreciative and happy and I was watching all these old Beatles videos, so sometimes I just have this sudden Beatles urge (All you need is Beatles!) But other times I have really had enough, and start listening to ABBA... Which is an OK band, I guess. Not even close to The Beatles, but still...

Just a question @LikeASir, how long have you been into The Beatles?
