I've had to solve some math problems for an application recently and one problem contained a type of numbers with certain properties for which one had to prove something. One of the properties was, that the sum of its digits is 57. Lazy as I am, I didn't want to refer to them as 'the type of number with property A, B, and C of which the digits sum up to 57' all the time, so I chose to give them a name. And since the year 1957 is a really important year for Beatles fans I baptised those special numbers Beatles Numbers....a-hard-days-night-john-7I'd like to see the corrector's face when they see my solutions.

Not once does the diversity seem forced -- the genius of the record is how the vaudevillian "When I'm 64" seems like a logical extension of "Within You Without You" and how it provides a gateway to the chiming guitars of "Lovely Rita. - Stephen T. Erlewine on Sgt Pepper's

I'm in the process of making my cousin a scrapbook for her graduation. I've got a ton of stickers, and one in particular has the quote "I get by With A Little Help From My Friends " (the Beatles reference is probably the only reason I bought that sticker). The page I used the sticker on has a picture of us where we're under the influence. I thought it was fitting considering what the next line of the song is.

My next paper in Classics is about how Ancient Tragedians such as Aeschylus and Sophocles use [The Gods] as a concept by which they measure their pain.

In music theory, Dazed & Confused and WMGGW were used as examples for chrimatic basslines. It was the love version, not the album version.

A few months ago I quoted "the love you take is equal to the love you make" at the end of a movie review. I must confess that since it was a romantic movie about a cassanova, I did intend to express double meanings...ahdn_john_08_giftwo-virgins

Any time my friends say “Yesterday ” or “Something ” or “Because ” or something like that in normal conversation I’ll yell “DiD yOU sAY [insert whatever accidental Beatles reference here].” It drives everyone insane but it’s pretty entertaining.

My friends often say I'm So Tired , so I then proceed to sing as much of the song as possible until they force me to stop.

I am giving a speech on the difference between acoustic and electric guitars, and the intro includes an anecdote about me strumming along to the Beatles on a badminton racket as a kid. a-hard-days-night-george-9

Perhaps that should be a category. Strings of posts are often much funnier than solitary ones.

I had to do a 3 minute presentation last week about something that has affected society for at least 3 decades.  I did mine on Paul McCartney .

I’m in a competition with another kid in my class to see who can slip the most Beatles references into their presentations.

(I’m currently in the lead... at least I think)
