When you paw your way through your entire history textbook until you find a tiny little section about rock and roll...

only to discover that the only artists they talk about are Elvis and U2 ahdn_paul_01

 Ohhh I suddenly realize that in that tiny paragraph about rock&roll in my history book, the only artist mentioned is the Beatles (who, "from England, also had a great impact on the world").That's too brief a description, but at least they are mentioned.a-hard-days-night-george-9

Right now I've got someone from school asking me for help with a concept (I did the class last year), but here I am.

When your chemistry teacher makes you do 'question number nine' on the board and you get excited.

On a completely unrelated note, my chemistry teacher's name is Mr. Einstein.

Sitting at a table today, and heard someone refer to what they did the night before. The song automatically played in my head and I wanted to rock out.

I usually do this on accident tbh, because I misheard the backing as melody.

It's ALL melody! beatlemaniacs_02_gif

(Just had a great/terrible idea for a game: Identify the song based on backing vocals alone! Like, someone offers "No I wouldn't, no I wouldn't, OOOOH-OOH la la la" and then waits for the answer "You Won't See Me "...)

Honestly I think it's closer to "terrible" than "great" as an idea; I wasn't wholly serious. It seems very limiting (but don't let me stop you from starting a thread yourself!)
