Today in composition class our teacher showed us tons of quotes. I just thought, “Oh, how funny it will be if I see a Beatle quote”

The next moment I looked up and saw a John Lennon quote on the projection screen.john-lennon-salute_gif

a-hard-days-night-ringo-6Okay. I almost had a minor heart attack...

  

It wasn't the infamous "happy" "quote"  (note the use of speech marks twice ahdn_paul_01), was it?

Not sure which one you're referring toahdn_paul_01But this one was like... “Life is what happens to you when you're busy doing other things” (Translated version–Familiar, but I can't remember where it comes froma-hard-days-night-paul-7)

It's a line from Beautiful Boy, @ScarlettFieldsForever, and was a paraphrase of a quote originally by someone else.

Oh I didn't know that, that's a shame. a-hard-days-night-paul-10

Great quote, though.

And, to stay on topic, the Beatles channel does this thing called "My Fab Four" which is basically "pick your four favorite Beatles songs." Today my dad told me his fab four: She Loves You , I Feel Fine , Ticket To Ride , and Paperback Writer . All of which are in my top 20. I'm proud of him, he has good taste a-hard-days-night-george-9

Last time I checked my dad's top 10 was
10. Ticket To Ride
9. Hello Goodbye
8. Got To Get You Into My Life
7. Drive My Car
6. She Said She Said
5. Hey Bulldog
4. A Day In The Life
3. Sgt Pepper 's Lonely Hearts Club Band
2. I Am The Walrus
1. And Your Bird Can Sing

 

Interesting that both our dads really like Ticket To Ride @50yearslate - I always forget it (though I definitely love the song). 

 

On topic: I went to the music room at lunch today and a girl there played Blackbird on guitar, to which I responded by playing Day Tripper on guitar which she thought was pretty cool.

I was referring to this quote, which is misattributed to John (meaning he didn't actually say this):

There's a thread dedicated to the matter in John's section of the forum.

As for the John quote, I like it, but I always thought it seemed very un-John-ish. I guess that explains it mccartney-shrug_01_gif

Speaking of misattributed quote...Saw this Google Doodle today (Women's Day theme)

doodle.jpg.jpgImage Enlarger

It shows a quote from Yoko Ono: "A dream you dream alone is only a dream. A dream you dream together is reality."

However, I remember reading it from the "I Want To Tell You " part on BB, and it was attributed to John.

This is confusing...ahdn_george_01

fifteen out of fifteen, good job, I'm proud of you. apple01

Speaking of which, when I was in third grade I took piano lessons for a year, and a couple months ago I was looking through some of my old piano music and A Hard Day's Night , Hey Jude , and some other songs were mixed in with the other songs. Sadly I don't remember how to play them, and I'm sure they were easy kiddie-versions too, but I'm proud of my third-grade self.

Oh, and if I recall correctly, I played Yellow Submarine at my first recital. ahdn_george_08

Tall, dark-haired QuarryMan likes basketball, music, and naturally, boys. He was a valuable participant on the track team. He is one of Freeport's great contributors to the recording world. As for the immediate future, QuarryMan has no plans, but will take life as it comes.

While listening to the Sgt. Pepper 's album on my way to my friend's house, I noticed a sign in front of a church that said "I get by With A Little Help From My Friends ".
