Think about it... I've got 404 songs on my phone, 170 songs are Beatles or solo. That's a 42% of getting one on shuffle, and I listen to at least 3 songs a day oon the train on the way home... I should almost always get a Beatles song.

I have quite a bit of music on my phone, but the only non-Beatles/non-solo-Beatles stuff I've actually listened to on it is:

O&O

One Elliott Smith song, I forget what it was called

The Rain Song

ummm I think that's it

I never put my whole library on shuffle though, I just pick an album or a playlist and stick with it.

When you look through music on tour phone, trying to pick one rarely revisited Beatles album to listen, then realize “Oh I've heard each one several times this week”

My phone ringtone is a snippet from The End . My iPhone wallpaper is a group shot from their early years. Nice balance of eras I think.

I would have Beatle lock screens but none of the pictures I like fit and also I have a duty to my pets. As for ringtones, no one ever calls me and my ringer's never on anyway.

I use one of those David Bailey photos of John&Paul as lock screen and a hippie style picture of them as wallpaper (I think it was taken when they visited Maharishi).

I think ringtones are greatly disturbing so I just keep my phone mute. Therefore, though I have set Sgt. Pepper title track as ringtone, it's basically useless. mccartney-shrug_01_gif

I guess I'm sacrilegious: I don't know what my ringtone is advanced it's always silent, and my home/lock screen is a picture of the Sydney Harbour Bridge I took. IMG_2664.PNGImage Enlarger

...when browsing bookstores or library shelves for biographies of popular musicians/bands of the 1960s, you invariably flip to the index to see how the Beatles figure into the story.

My new ringtone is Honey Pie Instrumental Backing Track from the super deluxe. It runs from .38 to 1.08. It’s so good.

Cataloging a book about labor unions in the U.S. and came across the "Brown Shoe" case. My mind went directly to buzzing with sounds of Old Brown Shoe .
