I’m reading a book that has now had two Beatles references within about five pages. One was about “a helter-skelter dash through the snow”, and the other is this glorious exchange:

I heard a commercial on the radio a little while ago for a store that sells designer clothing (Nordstrom maybe?), and in it they said they had a sale on Stella McCartney stuff, among others.

So I’m sitting here adding this book to the library collection. I see this in the table of contents.

So I flip to the page to read about Revolver . But what do I see? A detailed description of the recording of Please Please Me . mccartney-shrug_01_gif

This book was published in 2016. In the chapter, he goes on to talk about Lewisohn’s All These Years books. A possible 4th volume? I missed that somewhere along the way.

Watching Pointless and there is a round on people the Queen has made a Companion of Honour. One of the clues to someone who had received that award was:

The singer/songwriter who sang and played bass guitar in The Beatles.

For those not sure, the answer was…

Paul McCartney ! paul-mccartney-thumb_gif Who scored only 30 points!!! a-hard-days-night-ringo-6

Last night at work a coworker who was playing music in the store asked what kind of music I like and I said “classic rock”. He asked if i counted The Beatles as rock, I laughed and said that The Beatles were indeed my favorite band, and so next time he’s gonna play me some Beatles. I’m interested to see which songs he picks, whether they’re will be any cool album tracks in the mix.

Just another reason to love Jacinda Ardern – she’s a Beatles fan!

Watching a quiz show tonight called Mastermind, and in the rapid-fire general knowledge question section one of the questions was ‘Which Beatle married Barbara Bach in 1981’ (with some other waffle in the question), the contestant answered correctly (and eventually won the show)

Ringo representation in a quiz show… how I love to see it!
