It's 4:44. (Though that's more of a Fireman moment than a Beatle moment)

I'm in a restaurant and they just played a cover of Beautiful Boy. I'm simultaneously happy that they played a John song and appalled that they didn't play John's version, which is clearly the best.

My work's been playing a bunch of bad covers of Christmas songs, but they actually play Paul's version of Wonderful Christmastime .

Just heard an Aerosmith cover of Come Together on the ride home. Too much guitar

Yeah I’ve heard that one. I had to listen to the whole Abbey Road album (not RHCP) afterwards to cleanse my mind.

I just got back from the bookstore, where I had an amazing Beatles experience. I was looking at the graphic novels, trying to find a suitable Christmas present for my brother, when Twist And Shout began to play. Literally seconds into the song, my eyes fell upon THIS. I knew it was a sign and I bought it immediately.

Yes, that's right. It's the movie Yellow Submarine ... in comic book form.

I’m so happy this exists.

I have a friend who says that books are always better than movies, and refuses to watch any movie unless she reads the book form of it first. Now she has no excuse not to watch YS with me a-hard-days-night-john-1.

And to stay-on-topic, the other day I was at the barbers when Come Together started playing. Unfortunately, it was a cover. (I can’t remember which cover it was, though.)

 That is perfect! I have the same policy with two exceptions: If the movie isn't based on a book I'll watch it, and if the book came after the movie then I'll see the movie first. Both of these rules apply to YS.

And to stay-on-topic, the other day I was at the barbers when Come Together started playing. Unfortunately, it was a cover. (I can’t remember which cover it was, though.)  

Hopefully not Aerosmith a-hard-days-night-paul-3

I was just at a Hawaiian beach performance a couple of hours ago (stage performances, etc) and I am sure I heard the melody of Day Tripper during an instrumental section. In fact, I know I did. A Beatles fan knows these things automatically.

Not uncommon to tease one of the most iconic riffs of all time. Clapton, Stills, Anastasio, Jimmy Herring. So many greats will just throw Day Tripper right in.

Heard Anna (Go To Him) playing fairly loud on Waikiki Beach about ten minutes ago. What an iconic voice.

We were kids in the late sixties and a friend and I were sitting around bored. It was quiet for a while and then we both started singing, "Can you take me back where I came from" at the SAME time. Talk about weird...

Walked into my work to pick up my wages and found my colleagues all jigging around to Twist And Shout and singing the 'ahhh' parts.

I was scrolling through the shows available on BBC four, and clicked on a You and Yours episode about people making the most of their later life. For the introduction, they played When I'm 64 and talked about it a little bit.

I was reading an article about the cricket match between Australia and India currently, and it mentioned Beatlemania:

"In the Beatlemania summer of 1964-65, no local player notched a Test century for the entire season."

 

My goodness The Beatles turn up in weird places!

I’m in Kauai and walked into a store. They have a shirt with ‘The Roosters’, walking across a crosswalk ala Abbey Road .
