The pie was a bitter disappointment! It tasted nice but that was meant to be John?!?!?

I had a rehearsal in another music school than usual today and I had no clue where I was supposed to meet the others, therefore. Since I was half an hour early anyway I wandered around a bit and looked for the others or alternatively a place to sit down. When I arrived at a place with a Let It Be poster I decided to stay there. Suddenly behind one looked door a boy began singing Blackbird with his singing teacher, I took that as a sign that I had to stay at this place and really: after ten minutes or so the others arrived where I was and we went to the rehearsal together. 

The Beatles have led me to the right place in the confusing labyrinth of halls.a-hard-days-night-john-6

Not once does the diversity seem forced -- the genius of the record is how the vaudevillian "When I'm 64" seems like a logical extension of "Within You Without You" and how it provides a gateway to the chiming guitars of "Lovely Rita. - Stephen T. Erlewine on Sgt Pepper's

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 heart Oh what a PERFECT Beatley moment, @Martha!

I'm ordering books for the library and just came across an author named Julia Baird. Nope, it isn't a book about John or The Beatles...not THAT Julia Baird.

Was it a book about Queen Victoria? I'm reading that at the mo, I saw the author of it and I went "ah no, John's sister can't be a historian, she would have mentioned it in her autobiography?!?".

Turns out there's some Australian wan called Julia Baird who is a journalist. 

 

(Her book on Victoria is great btw, I recommend it to anyone and everyone).

That's the book, @AppleScruffJunior. Thanks for the confirmation that it is a good book.

^Funny that I'm reading it right now, the parallels of the Bibler world.

I saw a guy wearing an Abbey Road shirt taking a selfie in front of the Leaning Tower of Pisa. I pointed to the Charlie Brown Abbey Road shirt I am am wearing and then pointed to his shirt.

You won't believe this: he walked over and started singing "Is anybody going to listen to my story all about the girl who came to stay?"!!!!

He was an older man and didn't speak much English, but he did say "Beatles best." His son, who spoke English, said they were from Russia.  

I'm finally getting around to posting pictures to go with this story.

I've had a good amount of Beatley Moments in my days away from the forum, so without further ado, here are a couple (as I can't remember them all right now ahdn_paul_01):

- While at that vegan restaurant Paul, Ringo, @Martha and I ate at, a-hard-days-night-george-10 they played a whopping fifteen Beatles songs!!!

- *flipping ahead through my German textbook, when all of a sudden*

These were two awesome Beatley moments @WeepingAtlasCedars! Very suspicious that the restaurant we went with Ringo and Paul to played almost only Paul songs, they must have some sort of secret contract 'If I show up and eat here, you gotta play my songs, alright?' a-hard-days-night-george-10

Funnily enough, I've also had a Beatley moment with my English textbook lately, though it's not as good as yours, those textbook writers just know what's important:IMG_20171008_092111.jpgImage Enlarger

(look at the part 'relative clause')

I am tickled with glee for you, MadisonMcCartney2267!

I made eye contact with THE MAN at the concert I went to this year. Oh, those magic eyes. Pulling birds to him for over 50 years!

What did your first sign say?  

It said, "you saved my life, thank you heart"

A light is on the brink of going out in the doctor's office waiting room. I swear it sounds like the beginning of Revolution as it flickers. I wish one of you were here to tell me if it sounds like the song to you too.

My mom was listening to a podcast about evolution of the English language today, and they mentioned Paul McCartney

Wal-Mart played Woman by John Lennon when I got to the checkout line. I think that was a call to linger longer and shop more.

That same song was on the radio at the Vet's office while I was picking up Lily's allergy meds last Wednesday. The receptionist was humming along to it as she was filling out my receipt.

When I was waiting at the doctor's office, I noticed they were playing really beautiful piano versions of Beatles songs. The only one I can remember is Here Comes The Sun, but it was very relaxing and enjoyable!

It does sound relaxing. Though it may have been a bit unnerving had they payed 'Maxwell's Silver Hammer' in a doctor's office. a-hard-days-night-paul-4ahdn_paul_02
