When you quote and reference, not only commonly known Beatles things, but  random sections of from alternate takes and other extraneous material that no one would ever get unless they were as big of a fan as me. 

  

“Paul’s broken a glass, a glass, a glass he’s broke today” when something smashes, for example 

  

Haha that was a big one that came to mind when writing that post.

I recently managed to slide this into a conversation: “Are you big enough to get it? I’m big enough to get it”. Most people would have no idea where it comes from.

When your boyfriend is a Beatles fan, but does not have the knowledge you have on them. He presented me with a shirt from ebay for Christmas assuming it was a John Lennon /Paul McCartney solo tour or them together. It says Revolution : We All Want To Change The World Tour- John Lennon and Paul McCartney .  Even has tour dates. What it is shirts inspired by the lyrics by John and Paul. You try to correct him, but stop mid way because his family is there. I love the thought and I know he did it because he loves me, but I wish he would have consulted me before buying it.

His family would have been clueless to the information. His mom thought Paul started The Beatles and didn’t know who Keith Richards was, but wore a Rolling Stones shirt. She’s 56. She should know. paul-mccartney-facepalm_gif

Tears well up in your eyes because you can’t sing along out loud with Beatles songs because your lungs haven’t fully recovered from their bout with Covid-19.

Your mom requests to listen to “that song where he hits things” and you know what song she’s talking about without her even saying what artist it’s by.

…you glance at the TV oldies-music channel and instantly realize that both the current and upcoming selections have Beatle connections:

You wait till the end of the song and then leave. If you know a Beatles track is coming on next then run. Run fast, if necessary with your fingers in your ears shrieking loudly so you cannot hear the music. 

This is standard Beatles etiquette.

I was at the rollerskating arena near me and they were playing music as we went around. I thought how good it would be if they had Beatles music in their playlist. I’ve recommended it to their DJ so hopefully it happens. Day Tripper or I Feel Fine would work amazing in this context IMO.

When I was in a petrol station the other day, I could barely hear the music on the PA system, but I could pick out that it was a cover of No Reply . I turned to the man behind me in line and said, “They’re butchering the Beatles.” He said he couldn’t hear the music, and I told him to be glad he couldn’t.
