When someone asks you what your favorite band is, and you reply the Beatles, and then they ask about your second favorite, and you say the Quarry Men.

...when you own the entire Beatles catalog on vinyl, 1987 CD, and 2009 remastered CD.

What, you don't have any on cassette or any other tape-playback format?

What are you, a BEATLES-HATER?! :)

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

Ha, I've got certain song lengths memorized too, but my old vinyl gives "...Heavy" a length of 7:49 so I wouldn't have understood this without reading your explanation!

That has happened, but I usually say Wings.

Today I got an assignment from my English teacher to write about racism in the 60s. There was a handwritten note attatched to the instructions for the assignment reading- "Amelia, (thats my real name, Mimi is a nickname) I know you have been given an oppurtunity to discuss the Beatles at length, but you MUST stay on topic. Mentions of the Fab Four will result in a significant loss of points."

 

I began by explaining the Beatles would not play to segregated audiences, and proceeded write a long, beautifully crafted essay with an occasional reference to Martin Luther King, while generally discussing the artistic merits of A Hard Days Night.

Your teacher should really be happy one of her students is keeping the flame alive.

That reminds me, one year I kept turning in Duran Duran-themed assignments to my English teacher. But I was lucky her daughter was a Durannie, so they amused her to no end. She even read my Duranized Canterbury Tale out loud to the class.

You need to find out if your teacher has kids and if so, turn them into Beatle fans. ;->

Ha, I tried something similar with my senior year English teacher when I first got into Bob Dylan! I casually asked him one day if he was a fan - he was old enough to remember the '60s, maaan - and his face lit right up, he was so delighted that a student of his was interested in Dylan in 1986. We talked a bit, and he wound up lending me his copy of Blonde on Blonde (couldn't find it in my local crappy record stores). And when I wrote an assigned essay, I gave it a vaguely Dylanesque title and got a good grade!

Then I tried it a second time, and didn't get a very good mark at all! So I figured he'd caught on and I didn't try it again.

When in London, I didn't recognize Buckingham palace when passing it, but knew I was near 3 Saville row even though the building was covered up for refurbishing.

1. ...you graciously accept your best friend's Abbey Road T-shirt (even though you know it's second-hand, old and not-that-pleasant-smelling!)

2. ...You sing "Rule Britannia"  while in the bath!

3. ...You call yourself "thisbirdhasflown" even though your favorite Beatles song is not "Norwegian Wood"

4. ... you get extremely angry when you realize that no one in your music classroom knows all four names of the Beatles.

5. ...people ask you about the Queen of England, and you tell them "Her Majesty's a nice girl, but she doesn't have a lot to say!"

6. ...you buy all of the collections and greatest hits albums "just because"!

7. ...you realize that the Sgt. Pepper's album your friend gave you was the soundtrack for the movie, and you hunt him down.

8. ...when your parents ask,"Where do you wanna go to vacation for summer?" and you tell them "Every summer, we can rent a cottage in the Isle Of Wight, if it's not too dear."

Need I say more?

The first thing you say when you get out of school for the summer:

"WE'RE OUT!"

And then you're slightly dissapointed that Can't Buy Me Love isn't playing :(

...CBC-TV has been advertising something called the "Beetle Road Trip", and everytime the commercial airs, you instinctively drop what you're doing and look up at the TV when the announcer utters that word (happened to me three times in as many days!)

You really want to travel to Liverpool if you don't live there.

One of your biggest dreams is to meet Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr.

...when you want to start losing your vision so you can use John Lennon's How I Won The War-style glasses without looking like a hipster.

I'm sad that I have perfect vision.

When you are at a Barry Gibb concert and he starts singing "when they all should let us be" and you start singing Let It Be.
