1. Two months and two days after becoming a fan of Paul's (my "Paul birth-date" is May 26, 2013), I was trying to pull the garden hose out from under the tire of my car. Just as I got into the tug-of-war stance, Paul's voice began singing the chorus of "Tug Of War" through my headphones of my mp3 player. I had never heard the song before. I had just loaded all my newly-bought Beatles, Wings, and McCartney solo career cds onto my mp3 player and was listening to all the songs played in alphabetical order. What a wonderful moment it was to have that particular song play at that particular moment! I just stood there stunned and happy for a moment. Yes, I did go on to free the garden hose.

2. Two days before that happy coincidence, during a state committee meeting, I told my fellow Oklahoma librarians about my new-found appreciation of Paul McCartney and his music. After the meeting we all went out to lunch. As soon as we sat down, "Band On The Run" was the song that stared playing on the restaurant's music system. All heads snapped my way.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 Love hearing stories like this!  I have had that happen to me many times too.  The most recent one was listening to "I Am The Walrus" and as John says "pretty little policemen in a row" I pass the police station.  Kinda funny!

cbatcu,

"I had just loaded all my newly-bought Beatles, Wings, and McCartney solo career cds onto my mp3 player and was listening to all the songs played in alphabetical order."

You may have had another coincidence too:  The song alphabetically right before "Tug Of War" would be "Tuesday" (one of Paul's classical pieces) -- and you wrote that this occurred "Two months and two days after becoming a fan of Paul's (my "Paul birth-date" is May 26, 2013)" -- which would be a Tuesday! blue-meanie

Holy Paul McCartney songs, Batman. You're right! Thanks for giving me chill bumps all over again! Squee.

Good one. Thanks for sharing. I hope others have stories like this to tell us too.
