When you remember the last Greek letter is Omega by recalling the name of that dodgy seventies album that inspired the Red and Blue albums.

Mine is similar...

...you always remember that John F. Kennedy was assassinated on a Friday because With The Beatles was released on the same day and their albums were always released on a Friday.

I read somewhere a long time ago that Doctor Who was originally going to be aired for the first time on 22nd November 1963, the same day as With The Beatles, but was delayed by 1 day because of the Kennedy shooting. I cant see the BBC screening it on a Friday however and it wasnt like there was 24 hour news with endless updates of nothing new, more a man behind a desk looking very stern whenever updates were available for such a significant event.

WTB is the reason why i remember the date Kennedy was shot. And Love Me Do is the reason why i know the release date of the first James Bond film. World event dates would be far easier to remember if they all tied in with a Beatle event.

 

Are we allowed to claim hearing some football commentator saying "he's Free As A Bird" reminds you of the Beatles song as an example of when you know you're a hardcore fan? More trying to bring it back to the topic after my deviation.

When you have to give references for an essay you did for class and it goes something like this:

Start quote from:

Happiness Is A Warm Gun” – The Beatles

End quote from:

Photograph- Ringo Starr

Other songs mentioned (in names or direct song lyrics)

Revolution- The Beatles

Piggies- The Beatles

For the Benefit of Mr. Kite- The Beatles

Lovely Rita- The Beatles

Dear Prudence- The Beatles

Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds- The Beatles

Ob-La-Di Ob-La-Da – The Beatles

Martha My Dear- The Beatles

I can see clearly now- Johnny Nash

Drug imagery/hallucinations from:

.Interviews with The Beatles

.(from the song) Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds

^^^ And before I get comments on Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds not being about LSD I know, I just used the whole flowers towering over our heads and seeing the world in psychedelic ways.

I'm sure there is more that I can't think of right now.  a-hard-days-night-paul-5

"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!"

When you feel no one really understands even people you know who are Beatles fans except on here

^When you are in your "Beatle" mood your friends, spouse, parents ask can they please listen to something else and you can’t understand why

All You Need Is Love is tattooed on your upper arm

You thought about having your license plate read: LMW IF28

While walking across zebra crossing you think about The Beatles

You can never have too many Beatle shirts

You plan to name your kid(s) Beatley related

You are really happy on your birthday/anniversary (Dec.7) and then really sad the next day (Dec.8)

You talk about them so much people get tired of them

You talk about them so much that people actually give them try to see why the heck you are talk about them so much

^You are happy you converted them into fans

You hate posers wearing Beatle shirts (actually I hate people wearing t-shirts of bands or movies or shows they are not a fan of)

When people know what to buy you for Christmas or your birthday

You have a shelf basically dedicated to Beatles movies/interviews/Beatley movies (ex:Across The Universe)

The only reason why you remember family members’ birthdays that fall on Feb 7 or 9 is because of The Beatles.

You look for Beatle stuff in your textbooks

You get excited when The Beatles are talked about in class

You got excited when The Beatles were mentioned in a church (my parents church did a whole sermon on Eleanor Rigby).  "We're bigger than Jesus"

You get excited if someone mentions The Beatles on fb or tv/movie or everyday conversations.

You have big #9 on your wallpaper

Most of your passwords/emails/usernames have the #9

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

... you always hear people say things that make Beatles songs play in your mind, even when the words you heard a) have nothing to do with the song or b) aren't what the person actually said.

For example:

Someone said "Fell," and If I Fell started playing in my mind.

Someone said "Pineapple," and Octopus's Garden started playing in my mind. 

I thought someone said "Revolution," and Revolution started playing in my mind, but they actually said something about gorillas. I don't know where I got "Revolution" from.

When certain street names remind you of The Beatles: Pepper Lane, Penny Lane (there is one in a town down the road from me), Apple St, and Williow St (Paul solo Little Willow)

Certain Beatle moods when you listen to them: Early Beatles, Middle era, Late Beatles or sometimes all together

Tax season comes up or when someone mentions taxes you think of Taxman

For some reason every time I hear/see the name Wilson I think of Taxman.

Do you have the same problem with the word "heath"? That would be worse. At least in the UK it would, there are heaths all over the place.

Don't know any Heaths, but I know a lot of Wilsons.
