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.
