I think this is common around my generation 90s-00s kids i.e the ones who claim they are HUGE Beatles fans and they only know Hey Jude and Let It Be a-hard-days-night-ringo-13 You know the ones I'm talking about. Well here are some examples of what I've heard people say in real life and on the internet

- Oh my God, I love The Beatles, Imagine is such a good song!

- Beatles movies? Oh you mean Across The Universe

- Pete Best is my favourite Beatle *coughhipstercough*

- Yesterday is my favourite song on Abbey Street (they meant Abbey Road and Yesterday on Abbey Road....no just...no)

So has anybody else overheard/read any other statements by fake Beatles fans.

And I might be the only one here but if somebody posts a comment on Hey Jude/Yesterday/Let It Be saying "Oh my God, I love The Beatles BEST BAND EVER!!!" I don't take them seriously, I'm just like hey comment that on Watching Rainbows and I 'll think of you as a Beatles fans but maybe that's just me a-hard-days-night-ringo-13

Majority of people I come across who like the Beatles are infatuated with either Hey Jude or Let it Be.. and only those songs. On a random side note, my Uncle hates Hey Jude. I never really liked the Spector version of Let it Be myself.

It just seems to me as if people default to it, like they would default to Stairway to Heaven or something. Each of the Beatles have a song with radio play (I hear Octopus Garden every once in a while) so you'd think they'd know more than two of them. It also depends on the era, because my older relatives like IWTHYH and Help, but I also really like Help so I can back them up on that.. 

I also have problems with the people say "Live And Let Die is my favorite Beatles song!" or some uneducated thing.

Some of them I would call fake, others I would say are less knowledgeable. 

They only know songs like Yellow Submarine, I Want To Hold Your Hand, Hey Jude or any well know song

All of The Beatles are dead or don't know which ones are dead. 

They don't there names, get them confused or turned around.

OMG I heard this like on Glee, or Across The Universe, or Justin Bieber or whatever.

I would cut some of them slack cause some places don't play that much Beatles songs or as much as they use to. Like I remember growing up with a lot of Beatles songs. Now some of those same stations I only here a few and they are generally Hey Jude, Let It Be, Come Together and maybe a few others. On the same note, if you are going to say The Beatles are your favorite band or even your just a fan, know more than two songs. Thats just me though. I like some bands, but if I only know like two or three songs, I really don't consider myself a fan more or less even proclaiming they are my favorite.

"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!"

Whats always bugged me is someone getting into a conversation with you, proclaims to be a beatles fan and then says that Imagine is their favourite song. Have had that a few times and each time i just turn off. And i agree with those who have said those who claim to be huge fans but then can name Penny Lane and Yellow Submarine before running out of songs.

As for naming all the albums or songs on LPs a lot of older people in the US might be more in tune still with the Capital LPs so might get songs mixed up, like I Want To Hold Your Hand being on Meet The Beatles or Its Only Love on Rubber Soul.

Calling The Beatles a boy band. Then saying they are more a Beatles fan cause they accept that were a boy band. Or The Beatles are boys in a band, so boyband. *face palm* So, you mean tell me Metallica is a boy band? "No" Well going by your standards they are. It has been discussed before that terms "pop" and "rock" music has changed over the years.

Saying John Lennon is my favorite Beatle. Why? Because of Imagine. Do you know any other songs? No *hits head on table*.

No, seriously I had conversations like those and its any wonder I didn't explode. In the end, I got most of them to listen to more Beatles/John Lennon

Oh god, I can't stand those type of people. This reminds me of a time when I saw a girl I knew wearing a top with Abbey Road on it. I said to her that I didn't know that she liked The Beatles and she was like ''yeah, I'm a HUGE fan''. A few weeks later, when I saw her again, I happened to be wearing a top that says 'John, Paul, George, Ringo' on it and she said to me ''Ringo? Is that what the other one is called?''

Do you realise how stupid you've just made yourself look?

But seriously, I agree. For example, I am a huge, obsessed fan and I can't go a day without listening to their music. I know a lot about them and there are only a few songs I haven't heard. My sister is a huge fan, too, but she's not as obsessed as me. My friend is a fan, too, but she only knows some of their later songs, and she likes Help! (the album). She can name all four Beatles (even George! :) a-hard-days-night-george-10 ).

 

Autumn, I like you and I enjoy your posts, and I don't doubt that you're a fan in the slightest but I don't know how there are songs that you still haven't listened to. I couldn't bear knowing that there's a Beatles song (that's been released) that I haven't listened to yet. Unfortunately, I am one of those selfish fans who is dying for more.

Moving along in our God given ways, safety is sat by the fire/Sanctuary from these feverish smiles, left with a mark on the door.
