You know you're a hardcore Beatles fan when you plan your Conversation classes around the Beatles.

Two week's ago class : Topic : Relationships. Students will discuss about pros and cons of having a relationship, and complete the lyrics of "If I Fell" by the Beatles.

Last week's class : Topic : School Stress. Students will discuss about the importance of studying and how to improve at school, and complete the lyrics of "Help!" by The Beatles.

Topic : Would you like to be a celebrity? Objective : Students will discuss advantages and disadvantages of being famous  and complete the lyrics of "Drive My Car" by The Beatles.

Well that's unfair - a true false question where it depends! You feel old? Imagine how a-hard-days-night-paul-1 & a-hard-days-night-ringo-14 feel.

Ad hoc, ad loc, and quid pro quo! So little time! So much to know!

You know you're a hardcore fan when you hope someone will ask for the time at 9:10 so you can say it's One After 909!

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!" -- Paul McCartney

Awesome. Beatles and Jane Austen in one.

All of sudden I wish all my classes were like this. In most of them, I have to use a Cambridge University Press textbook.
 

To continue on topic, you know you're a hard core Beatle fan when you ask your students to add "and Paul McCartney" in their textbooks.

I thought of another one:

1. You talk about, not the "McCartney concert" or the "Paul McCartney concert," but the "Paul concert." 

2. You refer to "I'm Only Sleeping" as "Track 3 on Revolver." (Did I do that already? Oops.) 

3. You hold long debates with your six, nine, and twelve-year-old siblings on which song by which singer on which album has the best harmony parts. (Long debates. And often pointless.)

4. Even if you've known "If I Fell" is track 3 on A Hard Day's Night for a long time, after telling someone to go to track 3, you rush to your copy of the album to make absolutely sure.

5. Your mother takes out her iTouch, puts it on shuffle, and sees how long it takes you to start singing. Then she hits "skip" to throw you off.

6. When you can't sleep, you recite the track listings. 

7. When you still can't sleep, you sing both of "John's sleeping songs." 

8. When #s 6 and 7 don't work, you sing "A Day In The Life." 

9. When none of that works, you give up, turn on the lights, and play guitar until you can finally sleep.

10. The games you play with your family involve trying to think of the silliest, most British, meanest, most loving, etc. lyrics. They also involve reciting track 3 of all the albums. And the best instrumental solo.  

Bonus: When your siblings are practicing the piano when "Strawberry Fields Forever" is playing on the iPod, you tell them that they can wait. Then, when it fades out the first time, they start playing. "It's not over." "Darn." Then it fades out. Then the iPod goes to "Let it Be." I bet you can guess what's happening right now.

A funny story:
Yesterday, we were driving to Camp Steiner to pick up my brother Polythene Dan (not his real name) so he could go to the Paul concert. We passed a sign that said something like "Norwegian Outdoor Recreation Preserved Area." I can't remember what it said exactly, but I seriously thought it said "Norwegian Wood." I really did. Then I looked again.

Love the drum solo bits. 
There was some idiot YouTube commenter who thought this was off the
White Album. Honestly.
