...you hear Aerosmith's version of "Come Together" on the radio and you turn it off.

Aw, I like their version. (They introduced me to the song, in fact!) Aerosmith were a fine band, long long ago. They and Earth, Wind & Fire were about the only good things on that stupid movie soundtrack

I generally have mixed feelings about Beatles covers - even if I hear a lousy one, a small part of me says "oh well, at least they've got TASTE. (Too bad they couldn't have just shown their appreciation for the song by posting about it on the appropriate Beatlesbible Forum thread!)"

I remember George saying 'Blimey, he's always talking about “Yesterday”, you'd think he was Beethoven or somebody' - Paul McCartney

You wear one of these because it makes you feel like John Lennon/Bob Dylan, and you know you must be the cool kid on campus for doing so (well...I have gotten some compliments...). a-hard-days-night-george-10

You know you're a hardcore Beatles fan when your grandpa calls you on your birthday and sings Happy X-Mas (War Is Over), but changes the words so it's a birthday song.

Also, when your cousin likes Guns N Roses version of Live And Let Die better than Paul's, for some reason it kind of upsets you.paul-mccartney

Don't get me wrong von - I think they do a decent job with the song. It's just a case of having the original in the iPod on demand and having zero motivation to listen to their version.  

And yes, Aerosmith used to be a fantastic band...then the eighties happened. Yikes. Their first 5 albums absolutely rocked.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8Zig - that line about the 80's happening applies to basically every single started big in the 70's band (Bruce, Aerosmith, The Clash etc.).

...3 good examples, mr. S - I agree.

A lot of people liked those 3 acts in the 80's. If someone liked the music they put out during that decade, so be it - more power to them. It just wasn't what I expected from those 3 bands based on their prior output. Just my taste, I guess.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 I did that when my neighbor woke up my Dad with his very very very loud Christian music on a Sunday at 6am. blue-meanieblue-meanie
I played God and My Sweet Lord back to back like for 10 minutes. He has never tried to do that again.

 

I don't mind if you listen to Christian or whatever music you want. Please, just don't do it in hours when you're supposed to be sleeping. ahdn_george_05

That's hilarious, Mith. ahdn_george_08 I've actually considered excusing myself to blast "God" when I had people come to my house to try to convert me to whatever denomination of Christianity they represented that day. I've often thought it would have the same effect. a-hard-days-night-george-10 But I'm too considerate of their emotions to do so...(but that doesn't mean I don't picture it!).

Aren't you afraid people will get the wrong idea? "You don't believe in BEATLES?"

LOL! That's pretty funny. When people text me those forwards about God, I like to respond with "Well God isn't real anyways, so you might as well just kill yourself." That's not my actual thoughts on it, but I get some pretty funny responses with that.

 

Anyways, YKYAHBFW you're at the bookstore and there's this huge Stones book, so you open it to a random page and it's a picture of them with Paul and Linda, and you're convinced it's not coincidence. ahdn_paul_02

You incorporate Beatles lyrics into dialogue in an English essay. 

 

Yes, I did.

You know you are a hardcore Beatles fan when, in a Sunday Ottawa Sun two page spread, count the errors in the timeline and bios above the article. Notable errors include (this isn't anywhere close to the total - I'm nowhere close to the article).
George Harrison is said to have died on November 26, 2001. He died on the 29th.
Magical Mystery Tour was said to be released in the UK in November. It was December (I believe the 8th).
The Beatles' first German tour was said to take place in 1961. Their first Hamburg stay was 1960.

...while watching television, the volume is set at a number divisible by nine. 9, 18, 27, 36, etc....

I even have my wife doing it now!

"Hear Me Lord" is not a hymn?

Speaking of religious demonstrations, I think it would be funny to invite the people into my house and serve it right back: "excuse me sir, do you have a few minutes to hear about the Beatles and the way they can help you see the light?" exaggeration I know, but I still think it would be funny.

And how do I know that I'm a hardcore Beatles fan...well, I know more about them than my mom and she grew up in the height of Beatlemania, I have hearts and peace signs drawn in on my calendar on John's birthday, and whenever I wear my Hard Day's Night shirt it always lifts my spirits.a-hard-days-night-george-9
