You know you’re a hardcore Beatles fan when you (and your dad) make a google sheets file with every song on it, and continually update with a score out of 100 (which then allows me to give you an exact 78th favourite song, or my 4th least favourite album, 3rd favourite George song, average tempo of my top 10, etc…. I have a lot of information in it). We plan to update 10 songs tonight. 

 

And when you walk downstairs like the Beatles in YMSK…

MadisonMcCartney army sent the first invader of their Beatles squad. Soon, I fear, there will a full scale invasion of hardcore Beatles fans to this Beatles forum. Nothing will stop the endlessly interesting Beatles conversations now! a-hard-days-night-ringo-6

You know your mom knows you’re a hardcore Beatles fan when she gets 100 percent on a Beatles lyrics quiz and she sends you a screenshot of her score saying you must be proud of her. <3

Someone mentions a facet of Ringo’s drumming and you run through the canon looking for examples to compare and contrast, because of course that’s what you do. Learning Beatles songs on a ukulele is teaching me key transposition, which was a side effect I only just noticed.

And how exactly does this make you a Beatles fan???

Music from the same era and genre does tend to sound similar. There are tons of people (literally) who would say that The Beatles, The Kinks, The Monkees, Los Bravos, etc. all sound and look the same. The same thing could have been said in the sixties…

Well one thing you can say about the Beatles is that they never stopped advancing, experimenting and evolving. They almost never stood in the same place for long and very rarely repeated themselves…

All musicians evolve with time. Beyonce’s new music doesn’t sound the same as what she did with Destiny’s child… Bruno Mar’s new music is distinguishable from his music from 2010…

Well, I was going to post a comparison of what Bruno Mars was doing in 2010 and what he was doing in 2016 vs. a comparison of what the Beatles were doing in 1962 and what they were doing in 1967, but the comparison is unfair.

Apart from Steve Miller, no one stands completely still.

But I would bet most people on this board would subscribe to the view that the Beatles evolved faster and more significantly than most artists before or after them.

…and THAT is how we know we’re hardcore Beatles fans.

When you’re assigned a paper for history on a certain decade, and you pick the sixties, and your teacher says “ok you can do the 60s, but you can’t do The Beatles or Dylan.”

 

paul-mccartneyGuess I’ll have to do the Beach Boys or the Vietnam War.
