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).

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 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!

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.

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

A couple over the weekend:

First, on Saturday, I went into a sandwich shop which was next to an antique shop and saw some people who had a stack of records on the table, the topmost one which I recognised immediately:
HELP!

Then on Sunday there were these two kids busking on classical guitars with foot-pedal-percussion (they were quite cool), and they played 'I Saw Her Standing There' and 'World Without Love' (I think. Or maybe it was 'Bad To Me'? I was confused at the time, and now I'm twice as confused).

I feel like there was another one on Saturday but I cannot remember it for the life of me now... paul-mccartney-facepalm_gif

My Library Link of the Day was an article from the New York Times. https://www.nytimes.com/2017/10/18/magazine/when-the-revolution-came-for-amy-cuddy.html

Here's the Beatley reference in it...

To examine how easily the science could be manipulated, Simmons and Simonsohn ran a study in which they asked 20 participants their ages (and their fathers’ birthdays). Half the group listened to the Beatles song “When I’m Sixty-Four”; the other listened to a control (the instrumental music “Kalimba”). Using totally standard methodology common to the field, they were able to prove that the participants who listened to the Beatles song were magically a year and a half younger than they were before they had heard the music.

I read it and was like...what?? So I looked up the study.

Study 2: musical contrast and chronological rejuvenation

Using the same method as in Study 1, we asked 20 University of Pennsylvania undergraduates to listen to either “When I’m Sixty-Four” by The Beatles or “Kalimba.” Then, in an ostensibly unrelated task, they indicated their birth date (mm/dd/yyyy) and their father’s age. We used father’s age to control for variation in baseline age across participants. An ANCOVA revealed the predicted effect: According to their birth dates, people were nearly a year-and-a-half younger after listening to "When I'm Sixty-Four" (adjusted M = 20.1 years) rather than to “Kalimba” (adjusted M = 21.5 years), F(1, 17) = 4.92, p = .040.

I don't really understand how the study helped them determine what they determined, but I think it is grand that Beatles music was used to improve the reliability of scientific study. paul-mccartney-thumb_gif john-lennon-salute_gif

What I gleaned from the NYT article, basically, if you are going to be a social psychologist and do experimental studies using human subjects, don't P-hack or your published article will go down in flames.
