I just realized that I answered this question 5 years, 362 days and 30 minutes ago. But who's counting?

Not sure what you mean - I've been a member of the Forum for more than 6 years now.

My little friend here taught me how to count to 6, so I ought to know.

That's okay, Zig. It happens. I probably should have deleted what you said, but I was too lazy at the time.

I hear ya - sometimes I feel like the king of lazy - too lazy to capitalize.

I'm just glad I didn't have to count to 7. a-hard-days-night-ringo-14

To be fair @Zig must be getting old so counting to 6 may be a big achievement for him.

Too funny. Some day, that might be the number of hairs on my head. At least I'll still have three times as many as Homer.

I was raised on their music! My (then-teenaged) aunts were absolutely in love with them. They looked after me most of the time while my parents were working, and got a kick out of teaching me about the Beatles as often as possible. I only know this because they've told me about it; I was too young to remember. My first actual Beatle-related memory is my uncle singing Michelle and Yesterday with his girlfriend at his school concert, which I attended. Seems I come from a long line of Beatle-lovers.

I was 7 years old. My mum was listening to one of the early songs (I think it was From Me To You ) as she was doing the housework. I then noticed her Magical Mystery Tour LP on the shelf. I picked it up and laughed at the cover because they were dressed up,so I asked mum who they were. My dad is also into the band,but only likes the older stuff (Rubber Soul onwards).

 

I also remember Thomas The Tank Engine being quite big when I was growing up (I never missed an episode),and Ringo narrated that show a-hard-days-night-ringo-10

When I saw his thread just now, I thought it was about getting into the band, as in becoming a member. I went, What? then my brain woke up all the way. ahdn_paul_01

Out of curiousity, which song began your love for the band? 

For me, it was While My Guitar Gently Weeps . I heard a Santana cover of the song and thought I'd give the original a listen and I loved it! I then went on to listen to more of their songs, such as We Can Work It Out , Revolution , Helter Skelter , Don't Let Me Down , Things We Said Today , and I Want To Hold Your Hand , just to name a few.

What about you guys?

I Am The Walrus was a big catalyst. Early work like She Loves You as well.

Once you get bitten by the Beatles bug you never lose that addiction. Life changes, for the better.

Hello and welcome, @classicdreamer. You'll see the stories of former and current forum members in this thread. Was it recently that you heard the songs and started your Beatles journey?

Yes, yes, yes, and yes. Exactly the same situation and thoughts here.
