I have to chose a paint colour for my livingroom/lounge and I am seriously thinking of going for Milk And Honey (that’s an actual shade) solely because it’s the name of one of John’s albums; I cannot form an opinion based on what looks modern or matches.

You should go with dusty rose. It’s still Beatle-y because “Rose and Valerie,” but it’s also a really nice color. It’s a mix between pink a beige. We painted our living/dining room pink after years of me suggesting it and nobody being convinced. They are now, though.

The DJ on the SiriusXM says “today is the anniversary of the release of the White Album ” and you say “it’s November 22 already?!!?.”

When you go on a whole rant about the Beatles to anyone close to you (in my case, my grandparents and friends) when you hear a word that was MAYBE in a Beatles song or has even a minor relation to them. 

 

(someone help me please I can’t stop thinking about them. they’ve infected me with their fab-ness paul-mccartney )

Your boyfriend gets gifted these Beatle-y things at Christmas by his brother, and you’re jealous that they aren’t for you. (Although we live together so I still get to enjoy them.)

My next door neighbor’s grandkids were out playing in her yard. They were running and playing cowboys and Indians, cops and robbers, or something like that. One yelled out “bang, bang.” Of course I had to reply Maxwell’s Silver Hammer . I didn’t stop to explain. Should have.

When you get annoyed at how Beatlemania is underplayed when new artists come onto the scene. 300,000 people swarmed Adelaide to meet the fabs when they came to town, in an age of no social media level promotion. It was something else.
