I do that on field trips. I don't have a watch, so I'll start singing "Drive My Car" (Rubber Soul is the earliest album I have memorized, but I'm pretty close on Help! and Beatles For Sale.). If I only get to Side Two, it's a short trip. The longest bus ride I've measured in Beatles songs got me through Rubber Soul, Revolver, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, and up to "Glass Onion." Luckily, there wasn't anyone sitting next to me.

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.

You know you're a hardcore Beatles fan when you already have the names of your first four children picked out.

You know you're a hardcore Beatles fan when you have the entire Beatles catalogue in both 1987 and 2009 remasters.

You know you're a hardcore Beatles fan when you buy the Red and Blue albums just because they're different mixes.

Whenever I run the mile in P.E. class, in my head I sing "Strawberry Fields Forever" twice, then move on to "Octopus's Garden". by then my mile should be just about finished.

Now maybe if I measured class-time in Beatles songs, then my day would get interesting!

 

And another bit of mega fandom:  You go on Youtube, see an advert for MCCARTNEY! And then get miffed when it's for Jesse and not Paul.

I was rooting for George just because for a brief time the Harrison also represented Pattie. And I do not like Pattie. paul-mccartney

When every Facebook status or tweet you make is a Beatles lyric.

You all will have read that Dave Dee is no longer with us. But Mickey and Titch and I would like to carry on the good work that's always gone down in number two.

This morning, I walked a 1/2 mile in Old Brown Shoe, Come Together and Something.

This afternoon I did it in Maxwell's Silver Hammer, Oh! Darling, Octopus's Garden and about half of I Want You (She's so Heavy).  

For you football (U.S.) fans out there…wouldn't it be cool if you were watching the NFL draft and the commentator said, "well John, this receiver should be a high draft choice. He can run the forty yard dash in less than Her Majesty!".


I take a shower in Half Decca Audition (From Like Dreamers Do - To Memphis, Tennessee). a-hard-days-night-john-6 (In the likely recorded order). a-hard-days-night-ringo-8

We go and buy to the supermarket with my uncles (usually on Sundays) in Full Abbey Road Album (2010 Stereo Remixed by myself with Rockband Multitracks). a-hard-days-night-ringo-15

I go to the school in A Day In The Life. (The best song ever created). a-hard-days-night-george-10

I go back to my house from school in Get Back (Full version with coda and reprise with no-fade-out from the Nagra reels). (I'm from and living now and Tucson, AZ). a-hard-days-night-paul-7

Let me take you down 'cause I'm going to...Strawberry Fields.

When your mum writes this on your birthday card (amongst other things):

"Wishing you an octopus's garden and Strawberry Fields Forever!" 

I'd like to be, under the sea, in an octopus's garden, with you.

when you feel compelled to buy every Beatles book you see, even though you already own an outrageous amount of them and probably know every detail there is to know already.

And magazines. John Lennon was on... I don't remember what magazine. And paul was on a guitar magazine. I really really felt compelled to buy them but I forgot my wallet...a-hard-days-night-john-7

I would have liked to have heard you sing the Inner Groove at the end of the Pepper album!a-hard-days-night-paul-7

...you notice that Channel 40 is playing A Hard Day's Night and immediately turn it on, even though it's half over (and you own the DVD anyways!)

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