We’re all obsessed. And part of that obsession is doing things that might be considered a little eccentric or just plain funny.

On my iPod, I changed the names of all the duplicate tracks from the compilation albums to sort of King James Versions. There’s She dost loveth thou, Assistance is needed!, Ye olde author of manuscripts, From myself to thee, Unable to purchase affection … The titles are generally too long to read on screen, but they still crack me up.

What are some of the things that you do? (This may turn out to overlap with the “You know you’re a hardcore Beatles fan when … ” topic, but let’s hope for the best!)

Those titles made me laugh, Hark, Thou Aught Hide Thou's Love Hitherto…I'm not entirely sure what hitherto means, but I suppose I'll use it anyway. a-hard-days-night-george-10

I don't do anything that creative, but I might have to steal your idea.

Heehee! Yeah, I dunno what “hitherto” means either. Another funky old word to use would be “heretofore.” (Or maybe I just made that up?) I’ve gotta find a way to work that in somewhere.

I say "anyroad" instead of "anyway."

Anyroad I went to see the dentist

I will start thinking or reading in John Lennon's voice. 

I will start dancing like Ringo and George in AHDN especially when "All My Loving" and "Don't Bother Me" is playing.

Well we all shine on like the moon, the stars, and the sun.

I post on this site.

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.

Anytime I see someone in a lot of red I secretly yell Kali in my mind.

 

I find Beatles song references in almost everything people say.

I make Beatles references and put Beatles quotations into everyday conversation.

 

And, yes, I have said that on the Hardcore Beatles Fan thread, but I feel it fits here.

I'm Necko.  I'm like Ringo except I wear necklaces.

I make Beatles references in my head most of the time too.. and I find it depressing that I can't share them with people around me for two reasons:

- English isn't my mother tongue

- very few people here appreciate the Beatles.. their loss!!

You can share them here! I do the same thing, but I only share them if I’m around my family because they already love me. They don’t care if I’m a dork. :) Plus, they’re all Beatles fans, too.

Watched "How I Won the War" on TCM and didn't understand a single bit of it since I am American and was not taught British humor.

I thorougly enjoyed the movie.

Hi I'm new here, great to have people to discuss the Beatles with in depth!

 

My funny thing (well there are loads!) that springs to mind immediately is that when someone gives me something or does something for me I say "ta" the exact way George does in that "grotty shirts" scene in HDN.

 

"well at least he's polite!"

 

The other thing I do often thanks to the lads is that I always refer to songs/albums as "records"

I would love to reply to you all personally but I just haven't enough pens!   We hope you've enjoyed listening to our records, as much as we've enjoyed melting them!

MattGeorge, that is awesome! I was just thinking the other day that I wish I could do that in everyday conversation, but A) I have an American accent and B) nobody here would know that I meant “Thanks.”

Btw, (this is totally not on topic, but) I looked at your website. What a cool profession! I saw 1964: The Tribute in concert this summer and they were phenomenal. Have you ever seen them live? P.S., welcome!

I haven't seen them live no as they've only been to Liverpool for Beatleweek when I was too young to go, but I've seen almost every clip of them on youtube, that'd be one of my ideal bands to be in, doing the live years, with perhaps a change to Shea or Budokan suits!
 

Thanks for the greeting! My website needs a major update with pics and clips as me of George, at the moment it's only vids and pics I could get of me in my "generic" (meaning there were 5 of us, no wigs, no accents etc) beatle band. Hopefully will be updated soon with a page about my George Guitars

It's small, but if I can work the word "thingy" into something I say or write, I do. Fiendish thingy only comes out when warranted. :)
