...every time somebody revives this thread, you can think of something to add

...you celebrate the Victoria Day holiday (this past Monday) by sitting on your porch and playing the entire Christmas album (TRUE STORY!)

I've lived in Seattle for many years, and have visited nearby Victoria, BC many times. (including one memorable Canada Day, on July 1st.) And I'm kind of embarrassed to say that I'd never heard of Victoria Day. I had to look it up after I read this. It's amazing, given all the newspapers that I read, and all the nice Canadian tourists that I talk to on my job, that this national holiday was completely off my radar. How have I been so unaware of this? Is it because such a large portion of my brain is occupied by the Beatles? Yeah, I think this is how I know I am hardcore Beatles' fan: because there is so much else that I don't know, thanks to all the Beatles' clutter in my head. Geez Louise, what else don't I know that I should? ;-)

Well, it's most commonly just called "the 24th of May" (even though the holiday is always Monday and so rarely occurs on the actual 24th) or "May Two-Four" ('cause everyone goes out and buys a two-four of beer for the long weekend! :D ) I just figured to use the formal name so as not to confuse anybody as to why I celebrated May 24th on the 19th.)

Well, I'm just learnin' all kinds of new things here today. Imagine me, a bartender, living in the Pacific northwest, a seething hotbed of microbrew beer activity, and not knowing the slang "two-four." (as in 24 bottles of beer in a case) Well, I know it now, and here is the website that explains it: http://beerblog.genx40.com/arc.....oddlynamed

Hmm… all these dandy, new-fangled facts that I've been absorbing today… To make room in my head for all this new stuff, does this mean I might be forgetting the lyrics to some Beatles song? I shudder to think… :)

"White Album - My joint-fave Beatles album along with Revolver. They show the two sides of Beatles. Revolver's very controlled - even though it's also very innovative. The White Album's playful and almost ramshackle. It's like a scrapbook kept by a genius. Fantastic stuff."

whenever someone says "yeah", you repeat it 5 times followed by singing either "She Loves You" or "It Won't Be Long"

When seeing 747 you think immediately of I Want You (She's So Heavy) above anything else.

Ha, I do the same too. At 7:08am or pm, I think of Hey Jude

I do not know, I memorize numbers well and once I see it a lot, such as listening to the music on itunes, it tends to stay. Especially someone who refers to beatle references a lot.

Song time lengths. The running time of IWY (SSH) is ingrained in my brain.

How on earth do you memorize the song lenghts? I never even pay attention to that. When I think of Hey Jude I don't think ''Hey that's the 7:08 long song!'', no I think ''hey it's that long song''

You read about the song lengths of some Beatles songs so often that it becomes attached to the song. I Want You (She's So Heavy) is the longest Beatles song (barring the sound collage that is Revolution 9) whilst Hey Jude is their longest single so the lengths come up regularly in articles about them.

I do know it's the longest song and Hey Jude is the longest single, I also know which songs are shortest, of course, but I can't remember how long or how short a song is.
