Once somebody gets you started on talking about The Beatles, you don't stop.

You really want to travel to Liverpool if you don't live there.

One of your biggest dreams is to meet Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr.

That's been the dream of many a person-even some people who aren't really the full Beatlemaniac. What makes me really sad is by the time I'm old enough to meet them, they'll be gone.

You can still meet them! Just run away from home and travel all the way to Paul/Ringo and say hello they will be surprised and then you will win

That could work! But I was still born in the wrong generation. I want to live Beatlemania, not just read about it in a book. Nowadays, you get much worse music than the 1960s and the 1970s. Even my classmates nag me, much to my chagrin.

To be fair to nowadays there was some abysmal music back in the 60's and 70's, its just that the really good bands that everyone remembers were incredible and there were so many at that one time. 

If you can find one listen to a chart from the mid-60's, you'll be dying for a few of the records to be over after 30 seconds.

Yeah that's true. It's just that nowaday's there's less of the good ones and WAY MORE of the bad ones. It's disappointing! a-hard-days-night-ringo-12a-hard-days-night-ringo-12a-hard-days-night-ringo-12a-hard-days-night-ringo-12a-hard-days-night-ringo-12

@Starr Shine?  a-hard-days-night-ringo-8Well, I don't like the fact that a lot of today's acts are autotuned. You couldn't do that in the '60s and '70s. There is no songwriting ability. It's done by some other guy who isn't in the band. They call it Lennon-McCartney for a reason. All of the music is done on basically a digital device. Just press a few buttons and -boom!- you're done! Where's the effort in that? Today's digital studios' audio quality sounds worse than the ones in the 60s and 70s. That is to say, not everything in today is bad. It's just worse than it was in the 60s and 70s.

You know you're a hardcore Beatles fan when you expect Google to know you mean Paul McCartney when you just type in Paul. And you get angry when Paul McCartney doesn't show up.

@Beatleva I do a similar sort of thing too. When I talk about the Beatles, I just use Paul, John George and even Richard! I kinda get having Paul mean Paul McCartney, but Richard comes up with Ringo? That'll never happen.a-hard-days-night-ringo-12a-hard-days-night-ringo-12a-hard-days-night-ringo-12a-hard-days-night-ringo-12a-hard-days-night-ringo-12a-hard-days-night-ringo-12

I always call him Richard, and most people just pretend like that know who I'm talking about.

The important thing is that they don't! Richard Starkey is the greatest drummer ever! "Ringo, what are you up to?" "Page five!"

What's his first name? And why do you hate him?

The only person you're hurting with all that hatred is yourself.

So do many other people. Why bother yourself? The Beatles didnt care if folk hated them. To quote John

"It doesn't matter about people not liking our records, or not liking the way we look, or what we say. You know, they're entitled to not like us. And we're entitled not to have anything to do with them if we don't want to, or not to regard them. We've all got our rights, you know, Harold."
