Me too, Sunii. I stumbled across a copy of The Essential MJ recently – there's some amazing stuff on it.

I also forgot to say that I always correct people mentally when they don't have their instrument names correctly. Like a lot of people call Paul's bass a Hofner violin bass. And I read it as a Hofner 500/1 semi acoustic bass instead because I'm really particular on instrument types.

Heh, I'm probably one of the people you'd mentally correct. Actually, I just call it "Paul's bass" or "Paul's Hofner."

It is very strange. I was born and raised in America but I understand ALOT of British humor. I find it far more hilarious than American stuff.

Also, I was walking in school once and I wasn't even thinking, but then I ran into somebody. When I said sorry, I almost said," Sorry Paul McCartney." It was very strange. I always wonder what they would've said if I actually said it. LOL

My mind is far away, off in Pepperland…

I've called some classmates John, Paul, George, or Ringo before. I don't know why. I think the most embarrasing was when I noticed my English teacher spelled something wrong, and I said, "Excuse me? George…uh..i mean…Ms. White?" and everyone was laughing.a-hard-days-night-george-8

I revive thee thread,

Reminds me of a story I was reading before about a Beatle fan called Carly, a lad came up to her and asked her out and being the awkward thing she is the first thing she was "…..John Lennon???…." needless to say she didn't go out with him :P

 

Me, personally I don't do anything pretty weird/strange, apart from the song references and all that yab yab

I remember that I do something else with one of my friends.

The whole, looking at your sleeve saying "ho ho ho-oh", is a thing with my friend and Niamh and I. Another thing we do is, if we dislike somebody "He/She is a swine, isn't he/she Niamh?" "Yeah a swine" a-hard-days-night-george-10 Also any people who we dislike gets christened with a Beatles name, we've got a Pete and a Heather so far. No offence to Pete pete-best That nickname came about after a dream I had which I might explain some day a-hard-days-night-george-9

I don't know if this fits…  but my brain thinks I'm hearing "Paul McCartney" when I'm not…  for example, the other day somebody says "Polycarbonate" and I thought they said "Paul McCartney"…….  Oh dear…  

I also use the word "Fab" on a daily basis.  Short and sweet.

"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!"

After watching countless hours of Beatle footage I have started saying "you know" after every phrase, you know.

I wonder if that is where they valley girls picked up that habit.

Love that you hear Paul everywhere, LHL heart

Footballers are the masters of saying "you know" every 10 seconds in interviews, that and "erm" – "you know, he, erm, passed the ball, erm, to me, you know, and you know, I erm, knocked it, you know.". 

"Well, probably we'll sell less records, less people'll go to see the film, we'll write less songs, and we'll all die of failure" (John Lennon 8/64)

I do as well when I'm having a good day. How are you today? Fab.

It also thrills me to no end when people comment on my haircut. I love saying "I had one yesterday" wheher I did or not.a-hard-days-night-george-10

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.

In my younger days, it was just below my shoulders.

Now, it's about as long as George's was during that press conference (sans the bangs – I part it in the middle). Back then that was considered long.

1) if i read an english text, i sooner or later hear john lennon's voice reading it (and this CAN BE really spooky sometimes)

2) i always know how old my grandma is, cuz she is born the same year as paul mccartney… and that is how i remember and not the other way around ^^
