I’ve almost never dreamed about any of the Beatles as actual individuals; mostly just about Beatley things like records and such. Only exceptions I can recall (posted upthread, years old) are the one in which toothless Paul said “Wee-bo!”; and the one with the four sitting silently back-to-back-to-back-to-back upon the ground. If there are other examples, I’ve forgotten them; and I’ve probably posted every Beatlish (and Beatlesbiblish) dream I’ve had since the thread began.

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

A dream I had a few weeks back, but I still remember it. Going up an escalator with an iPod in my back pocket, the earphones playing While My Guitar Gently Weeps . That’s it. ahdn_george_08

I went forward in time to the year 20 thousand something. People were showing me around and asking what life was like in my time. It was weird. Anyway.

They took me to a store, but wasn’t an enclosed space. They asked me about music. As I looked up, OMG! There was a box with the 4 faces that we know and love!!!! The box was the square size of record, but the box was thicker. I figured it was some kind of compilation box. I screamed at the top of my lungs. THE BEATLES!!! THE GREATEST GROUP OF ALL TIME!!! Then I started screaming like a 13-year old girl at a Beatles concert in the 1960s. I wanted to know which songs, if not all of them, were in the box. Then the alarm went off, and I didn’t get to listen to any music with those future-lings.

Long live the Beatles!

Current day/look Paul did a concert near my mom’s house. I saw Joe and Ted in the crowd.

Paul and all his band members and crew stayed overnight at the homes of people in the area. My mom offered two rooms for the night. I started driving towards my mom’s house the morning after the concert. I was stopped by Paul’s security team, and my mom had to verify that I was her daughter before I could proceed up the street. 

I went in to the room where I sleep when I’m at my mom’s, and Paul was there. I looked in the direction of the bed, and asked, “How was it?” He replied, “It’s comfortable, but it squeaks a lot.” I said, “I know.” Then he came on to me. I didn’t resist. As we were progressing, I told myself, “Just let go. He knows what he is doing. Just trust him.” Oh, I did! a-hard-days-night-paul-7  When I woke up, my whole being was trembling. 

At one point, I did give one thought to “what about Nancy” but I didn’t ask. I figured he had an arrangement worked out with her or something.

I never want to forget this dream.

My hot take is that after the Beatles split they went down the paths of spiritualism, solipsism, alcoholism, and Paul McCartney

Real unusual one I had out of nowhere earlier – I was at my aunt’s house watching YouTube and noticed there was a teaser track from a new deluxe McCartney II set uploaded to Paul’s channel. It was an alternate version of Temporary Secretary and the cover art was this graffiti-ish cartoon version of the regular album cover with a purple background and Paul’s face drawn in a cool Picasso style. I started playing the track and you could hear it was a demo still being worked on, the instrumental was synthy but way different from what we know,  plus it sounded like Denny Laine was singing it! I was like “Wait , TS was almost a Wings song?!” 

Here’s where it gets more unusual. After a while, the track slowed down, Denny stopped singing, and the synths faded out. In came these magical strings and a new vocalist started singing some different lyrics over them. On the screen it still said the song was Temporary Secretary , but it sounded like Scott Walker (I haven’t talked about this here, but I’ve really got into his music over the past year, so it isn’t completely out the norm.) His part of the song sounded closest to this. I got super excited that he and Paul had possibly collaborated on something I didn’t know about, then looked up to see I was no longer at my aunt’s house and at a train station platform for the remainder of the song and then the dream ended.

Now I wish that collab had actually happened for real sometime in the late 70s or 80s during the start of Scott’s experimental rebirth. Would have been interesting to hear what he and Paul could have come up with using synthesizers and such.
