I was watching a TV quiz show a few nights ago, and when the music category came on I wasn’t expecting anything remotely cool, but after the very first second of the snippet I was already jumping on the couch, filled with adrenaline and happiness/warm gun because it was Got My Mind Set On You.

The guy who had to answer the question disappointed though and guessed Paul McCartney as the ex Beatle performing.

Heard It Don’t Come Easy on the radio today.  Recognized it by hearing the cymbal at the beginning.  You know, before any actual notes are played.

It’s quite a distinctive cymbal, especially for the Beatledar to pick up on. stuart-sutcliffe

Sister Monica Joan has the nuns in Call the Midwife praying for the performers that will be in the Royal Variety Performance in 1963, and you shout out BEATLES!!!!

I keep thinking about Paul’s mum while watching this series.

I’ve been feeling down lately. But when I’m like that, the Beatles always help. Listening to Sexy Sadie now. It’s a world of creativity, fun and nostalgia. Can’t be beaten.

I was listening to “Woman ” the other day and my mind was hardwired to the other variant with the… slur.

I had a bunch of medical appointments this week, including a bone marrow biopsy (I’m probably fine, just a checkup really), and I asked them to play the Beatles for me during the procedure. Definitely helped paul-mccartney-thumb_gif At first they put on Beatles “radio”, so it wasn’t the real thing, but they soon fixed it. (Only read spoiler if you’re not too squeamish.)

Turns out Hey Jude and Penny Lane are great distractions from the singular feeling that is having someone drill a hole into your hip and pull your marrow out.

I was listening to music and talk to my fiancee about the up the coming Get Back doc. He asked how long it was and I told him. I asked are you still going to watch he said yes and I said I’m holding you to it because you haven’t finished the Anthology, or McCartney 3, 2, 1, or Good Ole Fredia. He’s like heaven forbid our children buy something Beatles because you’re going to give them a lecture to which they will toddle up to Paul and Ringo saying I know where you were on this day and this day. I then point out that Paul and Ringo might be dead by that point. I was like do you want them to walk up to their skeltons and question them? ahdn_paul_06 I now understand when he says there’s Beatles fans and there’s me. He’s a fan and has a lot of knowledge more than the average Joe, but will never be on my level or The Beatles Bible level because just knowing tid bits about them is not enough. For me it’s like why wouldn’t you want to know more about them? It doesn’t make sense to me not to know more.
