You pass maths tests purely because of bonus questions about the Beatles.Example : question nine, what is the second to last song on the White Album.... Everyone except me asks for a hint... Teacher: question NUMBER NINE.... Everyone has puzzled faces.... Me and teacher: how are they not getting this???

You have maths tests about The Beatles? I don´t get it.

Are you serious? That has nothing to do with math, is your teacher really allowed to do that? I would be pretty mad if my math teacher was putting extra credit questions about some random band like that.

I'm watching X-Factor with my mom, and some group just sang Let It Be. Then the one judge was like "You really did that song justice, The Beatles are great, but you did that song justice." What is that supposed to mean?! It sounded to me like he was implying they did it better than The Beatles, I'm probably wrong, but that's definitely how it sounded. So you know that you must be a real hardcore Beatles fan when you were a little offended by that.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8I think they were saying its a great song and you didnt butcher it to a pile of tuneless guff that would have dogs howling so well done. The X Factor has about 9,000,000 phrases that sound like high praise but have the undercurrent "Wow that was average but hey i can lie my ass off over this, people will swallow it and vote for you and like me. Great. ".

Dont watch x-factor on the grounds that i would have to break the tv in disgust over what is said to be talent.

I hate to sound like some mad preacher with a sandwich board but I physically cannot watch the X Factor because in my eyes it is genuinely evil. It is corruption, money-grabbing, false hopes, sensationalism, lies, deceit and mediocrity being spread to a mass audience like some kind of glitter poison, and its endless popularity is emblematic of society getting stupider.

You´ve just described how I feel about it, only better.

Gave up watching X Factor when I was about 10 and realised how utterly pointless it was, and that the people on their really aren´t that talented.

  • I went 50's or 60's themed diner and I took photos of the framed-pictures of the Beatles before eating.
  • I saw a jukebox inside the diner and requested for it to be turned on. I'd love to turn you on!
  • I got angry when there was not even a single Beatle track in it.
  • Going to the UK or a concert by a former Beatle is in your bucket list.
  • In a field trip you have more pictures about the Beatles than yourself.
  • Everybody in your school/family knows that you're the only one listening to the Beatles(in the family or school).
  • You write essays,poems and etc giving allusions to the Beatles at least once in a line.
  • You want to sound like a Scouser.
  • You forget everything about the American English and switch to British English.
  • You only want to buy guitars/amps with the same models the Beatles used.
  • You want to learn how to play an instrument because of the Beatles.
  • You immediately go to the index of a book/encyclopaedia just to see if there's a reference to a Beatle in it.
  • You are saving up for Beatles merchandise, concerts and etc.
  • You have first pressings of the Beatles' LP.
  • 99% of your playlist composes of the Beatles.
  • You get shivers down your spine every time you see a Beatles reference.
  • You get excited when you see someone wearing a Beatles T-shirt.
  • You try to show that person the T-shirt you're wearing and hope to start a conversation.
  • You want to have at least 4 boys with the Beatles' name.
  • Your favourite quotes and mottos are from the Beatles.
  • You have every possible version of a Beatle song
  • You have the whole Beatles discography, and even movies in your flash drive hoping that somebody might need to watch it.
  • People ask you stuff about the Beatles.
  • You got into the Beach Boys because Paul said he likes "God Only Knows"

Most of the stuff I could think of at the mometn.

You know you're a hardcore Beatles fan when...

...this happens:

So I was watching TV the other day and there was this "100 Greatest Musical Artists of All Time" thing on, and I sat through 99 artists that I didn't pay much attention to (except people like John, and maybe Paul, I forget if he was one of them or not). The entire time I was thinking, "Yes! It wasn't the Beatles! That means they've got to be number one! But wait, what if they're not even mentioned?!" And then, finally, FINALLY, they got down to number one, and I was like, "Okay, this had better be the Beatles, 'cause if not, I'm going to scream!" And then the guy on TV said something like, "Okay, this is what you've all been waiting for, the number one artist of all time! Here they are..." And I was like, "He said 'they'... it's gotta be the Beatles! It just has to be!" And the guy said," The Beatles!" and Revolution started playing and I saw a picture of them on the screen and I jumped up and started screaming, "Yes! YES!" and I may or may not have ran up and hugged the TV.

You realise that there is something different about you when you do things like that. My family seem to think I´m slightly strange 'cos I squeal every time something, anything, to do witht them comes on the TV or whatever.

You know you're a Beatles fan when whenever Manfred Mann come up in your life, you delight in telling everybody around you that the Manfred Mann bassist is Klaus Voorman- and you look at them in shock when they don't know who he is

You have furious inner monologues about who really is the fifth Beatle.

You're listening to "Breakfast with the Beatles" annual "firsts" show, and you've already guessed why each song was played before the reasons are announced.

Haha, I always get all excited when I see a reference to them too! And for some reason I always start to blush whenever there's a song of them playing somewhere.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 Wow, LOL!

It's funny because there are probably only around twenty other posts in this thread that say that (yay for originality)? No. paul-mccartney

That would be nice, my country's licence system involves 3 letters and 3 numbers (e.g. ABC 123)

You will be a hardcore Beatles fan if you manage to cajole the Land Transportation Office to issue you that Volkswagen's licence plate.

Well I'm still in school, and I know I'm a hardcore Beatles fan because every time I walk by the German class I yell out "Sie Liebt Dich, Yeah Yeah Yeah!" Oh, and I don't even take German
