We recently updated the iTunes on our computer, and one of the new features is when you scroll through the artists, it's much quicker than before.  So I said to my spouse, "Oh good, so when I'm switching from The Beatles to Paul McCartney it's much quicker."  'Exactly"..  a-hard-days-night-paul-7

For some reason every time I hear/see the name Wilson I think of Taxman.

Do you have the same problem with the word "heath"? That would be worse. At least in the UK it would, there are heaths all over the place.

 

Don't know any Heaths, but I know a lot of Wilsons.

Heath's also the word for a piece of scrubland.

Everytime someone goes on about a ring (including that whole LOTR thing) you think of this and start going "the ring, the ring, the ring?!" before singing Help!

The Hard Rock Casino down the road from me asked on fb: My favorite Beatles' song is _____________.

The majority of people list one or two songs; however, you make a whole list, but have to quit half way in the middle because it would take too much time to list your favorite Beatle song(s). While you're at you correct the people who list "Imagine" as a Beatles song; furthermore, no one after that listed "Imagine". :D

You know you're a hardcore Beatles fan when you haven't really been able to listen to them for weeks (My record player is broken, and I have a new iPod and a new computer, so the only songs currently on my iPod are the ones I bought off iTunes), and random times throughout the day you get a song of theirs in your head and you can't even listen to it, which makes you sad.

Also, you know you're a hardcore Beatles fan when, even when you're not really in a Beatles mood, you still can't get enough of them. I'll go weeks where I just don't want to listen to them, but even through those times, I'm still reading Beatles books, and thinking about how amazing they are.

I have a condition, that I like to call 'Beatles Brain".  heart  Their music is almost always in my head.  Sometimes it's just McCartney brain, mostly when I am trying to escape reality, like at work... or just most of the time.

"Please don't bring your banjo back, I know where it's been..  I wasn't hardly gone a day, when it became the scene..  Banjos!  Banjos!  All the time, I can't forget that tune..  and if I ever see another banjo, I'm going out and buy a big balloon!"

I almost have the same thing but sometimes I struggle with words like John. Although some details always get stuck in my head and I can replay it any time especially Classical Music.

...when you name your children John, Paul, George and Ringo, even though you only have daughters.

I remember George saying 'Blimey, he's always talking about “Yesterday”, you'd think he was Beethoven or somebody' - Paul McCartney
