You know you're a hardcore fan when you spend more on collectible Beatle vinyl in 6 months than you did on food for a whole year.


 

Wait.. isn't it that normal??? a-hard-days-night-ringo-6

My stereo box set cost the equivalent of 2.5 months worth of grocery shopping...


 

Glad it's "normal" for more than just me! I spent into the 5 figures this year and I'm by no means "rich". I am using eBay now to try to make some money back.

Bringing you the best and worst of The Beatles, since 2007.

Why not start a thread for "Latest Beatles purchases?" I'm intrigued by the five-figure thing (gulp), and I'd like to know what everyone else is buying too.

Or when someone says "Hey!"  you say "Jude…."

 

Edit : WTF Face from your students day 1. You read the list and you discover there's a Juan Pablo and a Jorge in your classroom and you claim "OMG! I've got John Paul and George.. all I need is a Ringo!!"

WTF Face from your students day 2.  When your students "John" and "George" read a dialogue about the activities they did last week and you feel a tear in your eyes like saying "OMG! John and George were truly friends after all"

WTF Face from your students day 3 : When John reads an answer from his book "Yoko went out with her boyfriend. She didn't stay home" and you say "Well, we all know Yoko is something uh?"

WTF Face from your students Day 4 : When I ask John Paul if he was named after John and Paul and he says "No teacher, I was named after the Pope. Who is John and Paul?" And I say very as-a-matter-of-fact-ly "John and Paul… Lennon and McCartney.. the Beatles!!" and my students go from a WTF face to a AHHHH face.

Oh, I have one. I was in Portugal a couple of weeks ago, and the first time someone said 'Obrigado' to me, my first (unspoken) response was 'Tanta mucho'.

Yes, I know, I should have learnt some basic phrases before I went. Beatles lyrics will always take precedence though.

2.You can name all the songs that begin with drums. (Example: "Rain," "Glass Onion," "Mean Mr. Mustard," etc.) See if you can find more! ;)


 

Hmm, another that comes to mind is "What You're Doing" from Beatles for Sale- great song too. I bet there are more but can't think of any right now.

 

Joseph S.


 
There's lots of these: She Loves You, All My Loving (the German version without the hi-hat intro trimmed off), Anna, Something, Rain (oops that's already mentioned), Boys, etc., etc.

Good calls Happy Nat, except that I don't think Boys should count b/c Paul's bass is there too right at the beginning. Also, Birthday!

You know you're a hardcore Beatles fan when any Beatles song can start from any time, and you will immediately know exactly what part it's up to and be able to sing along with the rest of the song.

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

That's a good one, Joe. After all, isn't Beatlese an international language?

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.

Random person: You like the Beatles too much.

Me: (can hardly speak from excitement) Does that mean they like me?

 Yes.

when you play your first original song for your mom and she suggests you audition with Decca Records because guitar groups are on the way out.

You know you're a hard core Beatle fan when you print this a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 and plastify it. a-hard-days-night-paul-11
 

(BTW I recognized them!!)

 

Edit : Is plastify a verb???
