I remember when that happened.  I was 11 or around there, so 2004ish?  Anyways, I had gone to work with my mom for the day, and on the way home, instead of turning the radio on, she put in the White Album.  After the first song, I asked her, "Who's this?" because I loved it so much.  After that, it gets fuzzier, but I'm guessing I listened to the rest of the album.  She never did that again, probably because after I discovered the Beatles, I went through a phase of obsessively listening to them all day. a-hard-days-night-john-6  It took about a year or so before I listened to anything else…

2002.  I did a school project on John Lennon.  At the time, I was only listening to The Beach Boys and Elvis.

Last year (2010) I totally got into The Beatles. Had to do a School-Project and I chose the Fab Four as Subject. I got an A. a-hard-days-night-john-6 Wanted to get all their Songs and now I have all their Albums plus some other (Past Masters, 1).

 

I liked them before though; sometimes (in 08-09) I listened to "She Loves You", "Yesterday", "Help!" and "Let It Be" all the Time. Now I'm obsessed with them.

I GOT BLISTERS ON MY FINGERS!

Mine started in either late 2008 or early 2009 when I first watched Across The Universe. I know a lot of people didn't like it, but I fell in love with it. I thought the cinematography was amazing and I loved the actors. Then there were the songs. I didn't like every song they did. But there were a couple that just stuck to me like glue, "Strawberry Fields Forever", "I Want You (She's So Heavy)", "Happiness Is A Warm Gun, "I've Just Seen a Face." So after listening to the soundtrack the millionth time, I decided to actually listen to the real songs starting with SFF and I've Just Seen a Face. And I just keep listening to more and more songs. Then I saw the opening sequence to Beatles Rock Band and though I didn't even know a lot of songs at the time I told myself I was gonna get it (and I did). I spent the summer of 09 learning everything I could about them. I bought my first Beatles album in November of 09 (the White Album). Since then I have got my brother on the Beatles as well as some of my friends.

Well, my first expirence with them was watching The Parent Trap when I was very little and Here Comes The Sun played and I absoulutly loved the song, even though I didn't know who sang it. But my true Beatlemaina started last year when one of my facebook friends posted Imagine by John Lennon on his wall. Even though it isn't even a Beatles song, I saw links on Youtube to Beatles songs and just fell in love with them! Cannot imagine life without them!

That's how most of us on the forum are.

It's tremendous to see how The Beatles are still so strong and appealing even to this day.

Once hooked, always hooked. No matter how old OR young.

My collection of recordings grows daily, and I probably have got more than 5 or 6 hundred Beatles' recordings to date.

It's endless……  a-hard-days-night-paul-4a-hard-days-night-john-4a-hard-days-night-paul-9a-hard-days-night-george-9

Saw the light on so I thought I'd drop in skye …. How ya goin'?  a-hard-days-night-george-10

Basically, I'm too scatterbrained these days to participate at places on a regular basis so you'll only see me now and then. 

Plus with all the other joints I go to, I get caught up here n' there all the time. Plus there's the never ending scouring of eBay. (evil place)

…. and don't get me started on Audio Gear, otherwise I'll never stop and I'm planning on an early night for a change! (it's almost 1.30am where I am and ya gotta remember, I'm getting pretty old and fragile too these days.)

I'm still recovering from stacking another pair of boxes that I finished restoring today, on top of some other boxes. Just kills me.

The collection of Beatles' stuff still grows daily. I must catalogue it all one day and find out once and for all What have I got, and How Much have I got. (… yeah right! That'll be a bigger job than stacking more speakers on the stereo!)  LoL.

It just amazes me just how much of it there is out there. I'm sure that every word that any of the Beatles ever said is recorded and stashed away somewhere, and will surface eventually. Only problem with that is that I keep having to buy bigger hard drives!   Heh heh heh.

Anyway, 'nuff said for now, I'm off to Pepperland…. I've got some Blue Meanies to count.

Right so, The Parent Trap used to be my favorite movie when I was younger and I hadn't seen it in years. So, I read your comment and have no recollection of this ever happening. So right now I'm rewatching it and I just hear the first chords of HCS and I just got all giddy. I can't believe I never realized that the Beatles have been in my life for so long without me knowing. So thank you for reminding me of this.

I first got into the Beatles on November 22, 2009 when I watched a documentary on them, and I knew a lot of their songs, but I just never knew it was them, and that night I stayed up until like four in the morning listening to their stuff on YouTube.(it was a school night too!) And then a few months later I got the remasters for my birthday!

After I took it, it opened my eyes. We only use one-tenth of our brain. Just think what we could all accomplish if we could only tap that hidden part. It would mean a whole new world. If the politicians would take LSD, there wouldn't be any more War or poverty or famine.

I was about nine (so, four years ago), and I heard "Imagine" and "Let It Be". The middle school at my school sang it. I fell in love.

I salute the lady who screamed "I love you Paul!" at a tribute band's concert.

Last year.

I can't remember how, but I do remember watching Help! every weekend, like I do now. a-hard-days-night-john-6 

This doesn't have to do with anything, but why do I keep getting 13?

My earliest memory of liking any Beatles songs was once when I was super young, I don't even remember how old I was, Hey Jude came on the radio and I would sing na,na when they all sang Hey Jude because I wasn't sure of the lyrics (it went something like this: Na, Na, Na, Nananana, Nananana, Na, Na).  Then, in 4th grade, my mom got Sirius XM radio in her car and put it on to a station that was playing Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da.  I fell in love with it, believe it or not.  Then, when I was in 5th grade and my little bro was in 3rd grade, he became interested in the Beatles for a reason I don't know.  I can remember him asking all my aunts if they knew the Beatles and what was their favorite song.  As I was going into 6th grade, I developed an interest in the Beatles as they came to iTunes.  The first Beatles song I ever bought on my iTouch was Ob-La Di, Ob-La-Da.  Then came Blackbird, Hey Jude, Drive My Car, Eleanor Rigby, and All My Loving.  The six songs that started it all.  Then came my brother's first Beatles album of his own, LOVE.  My aunt loaned him 1 too, and that became the soundtrack of 2010.  As soon as he burned both those albums to iTunes, I synced them to my iPod.  I was in love with While My Guitar Gently Weeps (LOVE Version) which probably fueled my future love for George.  Then, one day I was curious who sang Drive My Car.  I knew the people in the Beatles were John, Paul, George, and Ringo, but I didn't know who sang it.  I thought it was George (now I know better a-hard-days-night-george-10).  That was when I stumbled upon beatlesbible.com.  I learned all I could from BB about the Beatles and finally started getting into some more songs after playing a Movie Quiz online that asked what year did the film, A Hard Day's Night, starring the Beatles, come to theaters.  So, I looked up beatles films on youtube and stumbled upon Magical Mystery Tour the movie.  So I watched it and found Strawberry Fields.  This led to searches on different songs by the Beatles and watching both AHDN and Help! eventually.  By this time, my Beatles library had grown from the original six.  I didn't realize I had Beatlemania all along until my friends would say "Oh Jill" whenever I made a Beatles reference, wear Beatles themed shirts or hang pictures of them in my locker when John, Paul, or George's birth months rolled around.  Or when I kept a picture of the Abbey Road cover in my locker, brought Beatles books to school, showed my friends my 500+ beatles pictures folder on a flash drive in computer class, blow out all the money my parents gave me to spend at the mall getting Beatles albums, movies, posters, or a Sgt. Pepper blanket, that kind of obsessive-seeming stuff to people who don't know the Beatles.  And that was my long history on how my Beatlemania started a-hard-days-night-john-6
