I found the other poster that I had on my wall as a teenage. A wee story behind this one is that I left it lying on my bed when I bought it and the dog that we had also just bought, chewed the end of it, so the bottom of the poster had a nice set of teeth marks!

As jamessick has said, this is a great idea!

  

My dormitory roommate Tim Strange had this poster in 1981!  I remember going into the dorm room for the first time, seeing this, and being relieved that he was a Beatles fan. His was not chewed, that I remember.a-hard-days-night-george-9

 

Please continue, notice that this is not number 8

8. I had the poster that came with the White Album on my wall as a kid.

beatles-white-album-poster.jpg

I also put the four individual pictures from the White Album on my wall and then, I am ashamed to admit, cut the best pages out of the MMT album insert and taped them to the wall as well.

I have since replaced my copies of the White Album and MMT and will not be going anywhere near them with tape or scissors...

9. I did something similar to Pablo ... I didn't put the White Album poster on my wall, but did put the poster of George from 'All Things Must Pass ' on my wall ... I did return it to it rightful place again though!

So my next poster is ...

Another story regarding the White Album though ... I lent the album to a friend to listen to, when I was a teenager, back in the 70s, and when I got it back, the photo of John was creased as it had caught in the fold of the gatefold cover and as John was my favourite, I wasn't happy!

10. Really enjoying the poster images and stories. I usually kept my album inserts in a safe place to avoid damage/tack holes. One exception was the Sgt. Pepper insert which I hung over my record player.

11.  I was not allowed to hang up posters when I was young.  My father did not want the tape marks ruining the paint on the wall.  But when I went to college, I covered up one dirty wall in my dorm with lots of posters from my LPs.  Included in this were the three posters from Band On The Run and Venus And Mars .  Here is one of them.  I also recall posters from The Eagles, Pink Floyd and Chicago.

Anyone else have Beatle posters and such on their walls (then or now). 13 pictures please...

1. This year's calendar is pretty low budget.

Back in the late 90s, when I finally got my own place with my own bare walls, I was into cutting up my loose photos and repasting them into collages. And somehow, I got the brilliant idea to cut up the four White Album headshots and rearrange them into four completely reconstructed faces. Naturally, it didn't work well at all (partly cause Ringo's head is at a differing angle), and I eventually discarding them; I'd already exchanged the vinyl album itself for CD, but at least I kept the lyric poster.

Sorry 4 interrupt, back 2 game!

Growing up listening to 60s music, I thought being in love resulted in a lot of crying. In fact, over 10% of the Beatles lyrics include some sort of weeping a-hard-days-night-paul-10.

1. What You're Doing (you've got me crying, girl)
2. I'll Cry Instead

3. Cry Baby Cry

A reminder: whoever starts a new round should not provide the 13th answer in that round, nor are they allowed to come up with the subject for the next round. The only exception is when the thread has fallen silent for a prolonged period (minimum of 5-7 days).

The time a round takes to play out should not be dictated by those who'd like to see the game move faster, nor should anyone come up with two rounds in a row except after a game has gone completely silent.

13. I once had a wall of my room covered in black and white posters, most of which were of The Beatles. My favourite of which was of this photo. I just think they all look so cool in this era ('65ish?)

il_570xN.1850076382_iid8.jpgImage Enlarger

A really young cousin came over once and saw my black and white wall/shrine and said "who are they?!" 

I said "The Beatles! They're a band." 

He scoffed and said "a really old band." And that's the story of when I was bullied by a 5 year old.

As a few people have enjoyed the stories from this round, why don't we do:

13 BBers earliest Beatle memories!

1. When I was about 6, I remember discovering my parents' new copy of the 1 compilation album, sitting next to the hifi we had in the dining room, and asking if I could go to bed late that night so I could listen to it the whole way through. One of my first school teachers also taught our class to sing When I'm Sixty Four, with the lyrics on the overhead projector.

13 BBers earliest Beatle memories!

2. Probably my first recollection of anything to do with The Beatles was when I was about 11 or 12 or so, in or around 1973/4 and I remember talking to a older boy one day (about 5 or 6 years older), a friend of my next door neighbour and we chatted a bit about music. I told him my favourite group was Slade (very popular Glam Rock band in UK at the time, for our American friends who may not have heard of them) and he said he liked The Beatles.

At the time, I didn't really know them, but think I'd heard songs like 'Get Back ' and 'Yellow Submarine ' ... maybe a few other singles if they had been played on the radio. I did know Paul McCartney as he had had a few hits around that time with Wings (my music knowledge was based on chart songs) so I was surprised when I asked him who the lead singer of The Beatles was and he said .... John Lennon !

I think I may have said that I hadn't heard of him!

That's all I can remember from the conversation.

3. My Dad had the Beatles Live At The BBC album from 1994; though I probably didn't 'discover' it until about 1999. I remember flicking through the booklet, not being able to tell the Beatles apart from one another.

5. I was just shy of four-years-old when Hey Jude came out, but I absolutely remember hearing it at that time, either on the radio or someone playing it on a record player. I had no knowledge of the Beatles and no other memories of them while they were still together.

6.  I can remember my sister Jeanne (she was 16 or 17) had some psychedelic portraits of the four on her bedroom wall, I can remember she had the album Meet the Beatles because of that iconic album cover, and I can remember playing her 45 rpm single with Hey Jude / Revolution with the Apple label on our record player endlessly, when I was about 6 or 7.  And I remember my father relenting and bringing her to Yellow Submarine at the cinema after a contentious battle.

7. I wasn't allowed to listen to the radio prior to The Beatles. My mom in particular thought pop music was a bad influence, especially Elvis. So the first time I ever saw The Beatles was on the national news when they landed in NYC. Fortunately for me their first appearance on Ed Sullivan coincided with the only hour of nighttime tv my brother and I controlled (none other that The Wonderful World of Disney). My best friend's teenage sister was watching and he called advising me to "check it out". I did and never stopped. All further Beatle encounters were in realtime. ahdn_paul_02a-hard-days-night-john-7ahdn_george_06a-hard-days-night-ringo-10

8. As this thread has stalled a little bit, can I add another early Beatle memory? This time I had just been a fan for a few months. I had bought the 'Yesterday ' single in March 1976, thus beginning my love of The Beatles.

We were on our first foreign holiday, as a family, to Majorca in 1976 and I was 14 ... there were cassettes on sale at the hotel and I bought this one!

bb23.jpgImage Enlarger

I thought it was a Beatles album as it had pictures of them so I bought it. I had heard of a few of the songs (Mary Had A Little Lamb, Imagine and Here Comes The Sun ) so I bought it. I thought maybe The Beatles had recorded them. I thought they sounded a bit funny, but it took a while to realise that it wasn't The Beatles.

I thought maybe 'Swetles' was the Spanish word for 'Beatles'! lol

The singing wasn't great, but it did give me a bit of an insight into some of the solo songs.

(Please remove this if we are not allowed two goes!)
