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.

Sometimes I wonder because of my "Beatles Brain" do I make some of my Beatley moments happen. I mean some Beatley moments just happen, but others happen because I'm "that reminds me of The Beatles".

Yeah, when I say something about something that reminds me of The Beatles, I'm usually the only one in the room who's reminded of The Beatles.

I tried to get ticket to a Beatles tribute band yesterday. While I was little disappointed that I couldn't get the tickets, but I know its not the real thing. Now had it been Ringo, which I did miss him twice when he came down here (I eventually saw him), or Paul and did not get the tickets I would broke into tears.

Beware of sadness. It can hit you. It can hurt you. Make you sore and what is more, that is not what you are here for. - George

Check out my fan video for Paul's song "Appreciate" at Vimeo or YouTube.

I like it when people do a good cover of a Beatles song, but I know I couldn't watch a Beatles tribute band. I just can't stand it.

When driving through hard rain showers, you put on The Beatles to calm you down.

Reminds me of a time when I was at amusement park a few years ago... A friend and I were riding cars (rides, not real) that skidded all over the place because it was pouring. We kept singing Her Comes the Sun at the top of our lungs while ignoring the strange looks we got from other people. :)

You know you're a hardcore Beatles fan when you play them for your puppy, and it makes you happy when she then sits up and starts wagging her tail (because obviously she's a Beatles fan).

You know you're a hardcore Beatles fan when you try to imagine parodies of Sgt. Pepper's cover with characters from various fandoms like Harry Potter or Donald Duck (I'm actually thinking of drawing a version with Disney ducks, but it would be hard work) :D

That sounds like a cool idea!

 

 

By the way, not sure if this fits here, but before I listened to the Beatles, I pronounced "raccoon" "raa-coon," but after listening to Rocky Raccoon enough times, I started pronouncing it "ruh-coon," like Paul does in the song.

Yep my pronunciation changed a lot as well, almost becoming used to speak non rhotically (not an actual word). Onions, from Paul McCartney's mashed potatoes or Glass Onion, tomatoes from the original lyrics of With A Little Help From My Friends, evolution from Revolution and lots more  to mention.

You can tell what year a picture is from by looking at the haircuts.

I don't think Ringo would like the Donald Duck idea too much, because he dislikes the duck. a-hard-days-night-ringo-12
