I'm a loser! Every little thing I do at school has a Beatles reference in it. Now I have no intention of being a Paperback Writer but whenever I'm writing an English essay I can't help but write something referring to The Beatles. Yesterday, I was given back my corrected "mock exam" in English and I just don't understand how I managed to get 30+ Beatles references into a 4 page essay. I'm down because my stingy marker gave me 49/70 marks on it when my teacher said I should have gotten 55+. It's all too much, really! I've got a feeling I really need to let it be with those Beatles references. There's a place and a time for Beatles references and that's on this website not in my school exams!!! When I get home from that bloody English exam in 5 weeks time I'll be Glad All Over. You Won't See Me for 2 weeks though as I'll be in Germany over indulging in Beatles merchandise and quoting them to my heart's content but it's only love and an obsession with The Beatles

The End

^^^Okay that was crappy and a bit sad but I did manage to get a Pattie, Desmond and Molly Jones, a boy with his hair like a turban and a cheeky grin who's Dad is a bus driver (who could that be????), Jules, John, Maxwell, Rita, Pete and Paul McCartney in my essay. The Sgt. Pepper and Revolver albums, She's Leaving Home, Good Day Sunshine, Sexy Sadie and a bunch of other little tid-bits including a teenage John Lennon appearing for a couple of seconds *facepalm* God I need help! What if I get somebody who hates The Beatles or a young person who won't get the references paul-mccartneypaul-mccartney Damn you Beatles, this never happened when I was listening to Michael Jackson 24/7!!!!

But in other news regarding using Beatles references in my school work, the person who marked my mock Irish exam was a Beatles fan!! (yay) We had to write a letter about going on a school trip, seeing sites and something bad happened. So I wrote how I went to Liverpool (Learpholl) went to The Cavern Club (An Chluib Cuais) and to The Beatles Story museum (Scéal Na Beatles) and losing my purse on Mathew Street :( They had massive ticks next to my references to The Beatles (good on them ) and they gave me 27/30 (wayyyyy :D ) Same with my geography mock I mentioned The Concert for Bangladesh (oh I need to get a life!)

So apart from that very long post does anybody else unknowingly or knowingly say/write Beatles references at school/home/work and if so have you ever been told to stop/get in trouble with them a-hard-days-night-john-7.  I also do references in French and German and I'm pretty sure the people who make the maths exams are fans too, there was a mention of how far would the cylinder travel if it did "nine revolutions" :D

All but the most obvious Beatles references would be lost among most of my acquaintances/co-workers, as I have only one close friend who's as fanatical as I am. (He even won a copy of The Beatles at Hollywood Bowl back in '78 as a prize at some local fair.)

But ASJr.'s post does remind me of when I was in Grade 13 English class and was first becoming a Bob Dylan fan, and had a teacher whom I new was a big Dylan fan (from like back in the '60s, maan) and so I wrote something fairly Dylanish and got a great mark! And then I tried it again and didn't get such a good grade, so I presumed he had caught on to my little scheme and I never tried it again.

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!" -- Paul McCartney

The amount of times I have been told off for mentioning The Beatles is ridiculously I'll guess I'll just have to do solo career references, hey if you don't know where you're going, any road will take you there! Ah I'm sad a-hard-days-night-george-10

Is it the teachers that get on to you or just the students?

I'm afraid my teachers would get on to me especially since its a religious university or a picky teacher. Like my philosophy teacher for our discussion question on the tests he says put down what you know (about the subject). You do and its still not to his liking…no pleasing him. I've thought about the Beatles many times during that class, but I know he wouldn't be please if I put that in my paper or tests. I guess I could have done it back when I went to a community college because it was very liberal then, but I didn't think about it and didn't know people wrote or snick Beatley references into their papers.

Just the teachers, my history teacher took my Beatles book off me in class. I wasn't even looking at it!! I got it back at the end of class though :D I was reading to my friend the article which John wrote for the Mersey Beat magazine about the origin of The Beatles name when I heard scoffing from the class b*tch behind my back that I was reading something about "an old band and everybody who is in it is dead" I told her to f**k off and mind her own f**king business or I'll cripple her" Oh God I sound awful but she's been out to get me for 3 years and I always hear her talking crap about me behind my back, what I wear, what I do but in all honesty I wouldn't hurt a fly, I just want her to shut up and mind her own business and get on with her life and stop trying to bring other people down with her!

At least you got it back, but I don't they should have took it from you since you weren't reading it. I mean I could understand if it was a cell phone laying there, cause a lot of classes I have been have strict phone rules.  I don't blame you about that girl either.a-hard-days-night-george-10

I know people like that as well. My sister does it but she does it in a playful way (and she has the decency to not remind me that two of them are no longer here). heart

I did an English exam last year and at the end they asked us to write a page on somebody famous. Without even pausing to think about it I wrote ''John Lennon. Man, musician, philosopher, genius'', and on I went (for two pages, rather than one).

That reaction is a little dramatic, she's probably only doing that to get something out of you. People do that to me, saying they're all dead, and I really couldn't care less. I just tell them that one of them is still living, so they're not all dead.

^^^ if it was a once off, I wouldn't have done it but she's not just on about me and The Beatles. I always hear her bitching about me behind my back, talking about my clothes, my hair, who my friends are. She's the biggest prick I've ever met (pardon my language :/ ) and uh one of The Beatles is still alive? I'm preety sure there is two a-hard-days-night-george-10

If you count Faul as a Beatle, then I guess there are two living ones.
