I got into Elvis pretty strongly last year and ever since. It has to be a really special artist for me to go full worship level. Elvis hasn’t quite reached my Beatles fandom yet and probably won’t. But I do really enjoy and admire his music.

You know you're a hardcore Beatlemaniac when you listen to a Beatles song and the song ends and your brain automatically starts to plays the first few bars of the next song on the album. I just finished Can't Buy Me Love and my brain went: "Any Time At All ..."

I have a similar problem. When I was younger, so much younger than today, my dad and I had a compilation album we made in the car. We listened to it a thousand times over, and subsequently the song after Help ! isn't The Night Before , but Eleanor Rigby paul-mccartney-facepalm_gif

I'm always terrified that that will happen to me, which is why I'm too scared to listen to an album on shuffle more than twice a month. Which is a shame. a-hard-days-night-paul-10

Also when you lecture people your age about how music nowadays just isn’t as good. My friends are tired of hearing me say it, but it’s true! Why can’t modern music be as good as The Beatles or Queen or AC/DC or Pink Floyd or Rush etc.?  

Because a lot of modern day music is just so much better than all those bands (except The Beatles and some Pink Floyd). Have you never heard of Taylor Swift??? Honestly, I'd argue that she has less filler on her albums than the average Beatles album does. 

You know you're a hardcore Beatles fan when the teacher in your art class knows that when you're the only person left in class, it's obligatory that he puts on Beatles music. I've never even asked him to, either; he just knows.

I disagree. Can you name any Beatles album with more than 1 or 2 fillers?

Taylor Swift stopped writing her own songs just like most of the other “singer songwriters” on the charts who are now pumping out pop hits. Even if you think there is less filler its not as original.

That's not even true, though. She's a cowriter on every single one of her songs. Just because she works with somebody else when she writes her music, that doesn't make her music less original. That logic doesn't even make sense.

No. 

To name a few: Breathless, September, basically all of the 'Sounds of the Season' album, American Girl... and that's not counting the stuff she does live...

This happens too much. If a beatles song plays on the radio, i turn it off when it's done and just sing the next song.a-hard-days-night-paul-11

We went to the bookstore today and they had a big music section with CDs and vinyls and that sort of thing, and I immediately took it upon myself to track down all the Beatles/ solo Beatles material. I found Pure McCartney, which I have been coveting for a while, and I almost bought it but it was forty dollars so I didn't. Their selection was kind of lame: they had Rubber Soul , Revolver , the Concert for George, George Fest, some kind of George compilation album I don't remember the name of, and around five or so random Paul albums. I couldn't find any John or Ringo.

And that's when you know you're a hardcore Beatles fan.

I was in the bookstore looking at a biography of Paul McCartney and next to it there was some book on tractors that said "Yesterday and Today" on the cover.

You refuse to consider Magical Mystery Tour a proper Beatles album.

However the Beatles themselves now consider it a proper album as seen in the 2009 remastered box set.
