Title: You know you're a fan...
Post by: Janice on July 27, 2004, 06:30:17 AM
What defines an obsessed Beatle fan? Here, we can list things that we do or things that we think an obsessed fan would do! ;D

You know you're a fan when...

...the only thing that gets you through your day job is knowing that a Beatle song could come on at any moment! (If the place plays a bunch of random music.)

...all you listen to is the Beatles or any other music having to do with John, Paul, George, or Ringo.

...your favorite movie is AHDN, Help!, MMT, or Yellow Submarine.

...you stay up late downloading rare Beatles tracks.

List yours. ;D

I'm always listening to the Beatles in the car, in my job, at the beach and everywhere.

You know you're a fan when you wait for hours in the cold for McCartney's autograph, and each time he passes by you he teases you, shrugging and answering with an unimpressed: "Did ya? I came all the way from England!" when you fib that you've come all the way to NY from Canada to get his autograph ---- AND NOT ONLY DO YOU PUT UP WITH IT, BUT YOU WAIT A FEW MORE HOURS!

You grow your hair like them.
You masturbate thinking about Yoko Ono.
You call your children: George, Paul, John and the "Other one".
You get a kick out of watching McCartney interviews.

When a Beatles song comes on in the mall's sound system, you inform everyone around you that it is THE BEATLES.
You wallpaper your home with posters.
You join the army in hopes of meeting Sgt. Pepper.
Your only friends are Lady Madonna, Eleanor Rigby, Lovely Rita, etc...
You make it your life's misson to educate everyone on the Fab Four.

Grow a Macca beard, form a Beatles band, Buy a Hofner bass, buy every edition of Mojo with them in it. Buy sh*tloads of sheetmusic and biographies. Listen to them for 5/6ths of your life and buy the tank top from hell just to get the right stage effect. lol.

Plus the watches , every album, souvenirs , memoribilia etc.

I really do like them.!!

...You have rules on how your Beatles pictures go up on the wall
...You went through all your saved magazines (US weekly for 2 years and entertainment for a year) to find anything about the Beatles you can then you cut it all out
...You're gonna get a John Lennon tatoo as soon as you go out of town
...You spent hours composing Beatles ringtones for your mobile because it's too old to download them
...You freak out when your teachers daughter shows you her pictures from Abbey Road (even tho no one else in your class even knows what Abbey Road is...stupid kids!)
...You make it your life's mission to inform all the dumb kids, who don't know about the Beatles, about them
...You nearly hit your friend when she said that George Harrison was the stupid Beatle that no one liked cause he married Yoko

Ok, I think that's all I've got for the moment lol

...you've made friends with a 48 year old (even tho she's 32 years older than you) because she's a huge Beatles fan and she loves Ringo, plus she tells you about seeing them on TV and all, and it's v. educational
...You tend to get over-emotional when talking about George or John
...you've spent loads of time trying to learn "Let It Be" on the keyboard (I'm sooo almost there lol)

-Whenever someone says "Beatles" everyone looks at you.
-You thik they should come out with a Trivial Pursuit Beatles Edition.
-You change your looks and personality to match that of your favorite Beatle's wife.

I AGREE 100%!! finally something more original!! all the rest of these I heard before, and might I add, I AM ALL OF THEM. Though I do agree to not knowing all the songs by heart THERE ARE TOO MANY ANYWAY!!

- When you have sexual fantasies about at least one of them (even if you're a guy)
- When all you do is think about them 24/7
- When you feel that it is your job and duty to spread the words of the Beatles
- When you feel that it is your job and duty to education the ignorant people about the Beatles
- When you wear a Beatles shirt every day
- When you had a Beatle hair cut at least  once in your life time
- When you spend hours on a message board of the Beatles and you already have about 50 posts (me right now)
- When you defend the Beatles like you're defending yourself
- When you know all the basic facts about the Beatles that every fan should know
- When your walls are plastered in Beatle posters, from the top to bottom
- When all you talk about is the Beatles
- When you scream and cry if a Beatles song randomly comes on the radio anywhere you are even though you heard it 89374938749537498 times before!!! and you heard it like it's very new to you
- When you care hardly bear thinking of the George and John's death and you cry and cry like it's a death of your own mother or father
 

There is so much. However, I will never have the nerve to say that you own this or that or the other of the Beatles because it's not what you own that makes you a big fan. It's how you feel. How much you own does not determine how much of a fan you are, it determines how much money you have.

I LOVE JOHN LENNON SOOO MUCH!!!!!

I can say this though...

- When you're poor and almost losing your house or your car is being towed because all the money you get your hands on, you are spending it all on Beatles things. And you're starving because you haven't ate in a long time because you have been taking your grociery money to buy Beatles stuff. LOL

You go on cussing jags whenever a Beatles/solo album gets a bad review. (Guilty. I was reading one of my mom's old copies of Chateline yesterday, when I found a fairly bad review of Off The Ground. Let's just say I didn't exactly use the word "f***" sparingly. It wasn't the actual review that made me mad- it was what he actually said about Paul as a person.)

When you go a little too far when people say bad things about the Beatles (guilty)

A reporter said very rude things about the Beatles in an article, not one of the "joke" articles, but one where the writer was serious. He went on bashing the Beatles, and continue to do so in another article. So I, as well as a couple people, went as far as emailing him and leaving messages for him on his message machine. Besides, he was stupid enough to leave his contact information. I did not leave a very nice message on his machine to say the least.

- When you know ALL of the dances.

- Whenever you cross a zebra crosswalk, you are inclined to take off your shoes.
(I do this all the time in summer and I've gotten some pretty hilarious looks from other people)

- You kiss your Beatle figurines on the head and whisper "good night, my sweets" to them. (Um - i do that .... :B)

- Whenever you hear a random line from a song that some person said out of thin air you sing the rest of the song.

- Your favourite Simpsons episodes are ones that either have a Beatle in them or heavily reference them either by name or otherwise. (My favourite episode is the George Harrison one :P)

- You belt out Yellow Submarine regardless of where you happen to be and in whose company you are in.

- Your posters are your wallpaper.

- Every school assignment must reference The Beatles, even minimally. If there isn't ANYTHING in your research, you somehow squeeze their name into it and as a result get a lower grade that you hoped. (True story!)

- You go to your local Beatle memorabilia store three times a week, and the manager knows you by sight, smell and name.

- You've lapsed into using 'Grotty' if something, particularly clothing doesn't agree with you.

-You have mysteriously aquired a Liverpudlian accent.

I could go on ... ;D

The Hofner bass waas the reason that I learned to play the bass. Not just because Paul himsaelf played it, though. Everytime I start saving up, I blow it cause it really is so expensive. heck, I want that bass so much that I just go to ebay or http://www.edroman.com just to look at the bass.  And every time I get a chance to play one, I feel like I'm high. I don't know what it is that I like about that bass though, I just think it's a cool bass.

-you eat your pizza crust first, just like Ringo

ARE YOU SERIOUS??? Ringo ate his pizza crust first? That is awesome! I've been eating pizza crust first for ages now, and people just think I'm weird because of it. Really, I had no idea that Ringo ate pizza crust first! That makes me feel so good to know that I have something in common with a Beatle...
WOW! That's just amazing! Whenever I pizza now, I'm gonna think of Ringo now, that we have something in common.

PS. Actually, I have this weird way of waving, where I just straighten out my arm and hand and raise it at whoever I'm waving at. I just started doing it one day. It was how I waved to the car that dropped me off at school. I do it all of the time, and last year, I even went up on assembly (coz, out of the people that were called up, I was the only one there), and I heiled all the people watching the assembly as I went back down. I could never understand why I did it, or where I got the idea to do it from. I always thought I did it just to rip off Hitler. But, when I was watching A Hard Day's Night one day (for the second time), I saw the scene where Paul's Grandfather is talking to Ringo in the diner, I watched as, when Ringo left the diner to "live", he waved at Paul's grandfather with outstretched arm, in swift motion, just like I do. I was so excited when I saw that! I was all like "That's where I got it from! Ringo! Ringo!" And I didn't even remember why I did it all the time! I just saw AHD'sN one day, and must have seen the wave and subconsciously convinced myself to wave like Ringo. But I never realised it before!

Title: Re: You know you're a fan...
Post by: Mairi on March 17, 2005, 04:06:24 AM
Yeah, I always ate my pizza that way, but when I heard that Ringo did that Pizza Hut commercial I made a point of that.

PS. That waving story is so weird. I've done things like that before. Sometimes I start singing Beatles songs subconsciously, without knowing it.

But one of the parents from last year told me her kid and some of my other ex-students are gonna dress up in little suits like the Beatles early days and do a Hard Day's Night! Bummer that I can't see it though!! The whole school learned We Can Work It Out for the winter show though. Our music teacher is a Beatles nut too. One time one of my students saw a picture of Bob Dylan and George in her room and said Look, it's John and Paul! They still have a hard time picking them out in their later years.

Look at all the stuff we were fed.  Nursery rhymes were graphic--Three blind mice are going to get their tails cut off. Hansel and Gretel will be baked alive. Daffy got his bill blown off on numerous occasions. It wasn't bad enough Wiley Coyote was always falling off of cliffs, but usually a huge boulder landed on top of him. Rudolph was shunned by the entire village including his prick father for being different, and they wouldn't have anything to do with him until they could use him to light the way through a snowstorm. Then he was loved and could play in their reindeer games. I would have told Santa to shove his sleigh right up his fat arse, and have a nice flight, a**hole. Sorry.

Hate all music made since the Beatles broke up.

Jeff Lynne even hooked up with Harrison with the Wilburys and produced his Cloud Nine album.

Hehe, yeah, I'm "guilty" of this one (except I don't have an i-pod)
When my friend saw my MP3 for the first time, she was like:
 *excitedly*"oooh, can I see?"
... then after a few moments...
*much less excitedly*"do you have anything other than The Beatles on it?"
... I said I have some of their solo careers too, but that's not what she meant, apparently :B ;D

Oh, I just thought of another "you know when you're a fan" sign:
... your passwords on the computer are Beatles-related ;D

I'm insane with the Beatles. Today I had to get a root canal and it was torture. I was sitting there with all this stuff in my mouth and all of a sudden I felt myself begin to panic cuz I felt like I couldn't breathe. So I'm looking at the ceiling where there's this picture of a waterfall and I'm telling myself, okay, picture Paul in the water, think of John swimming, Paul's eyes, what it would be like if there could be a Beatles reunion. And miraculously I actually calmed down and got through it! I swear I'm obsessed. It's pathetic. I wonder if this could be considered an addiction. There should be a twelve step program for this.

Your not insane, Sandra. It's just another wonderful way of the fabs helping us out
in life. I go through simillar situations like when i'm really feeling down, so i put on a beatles
record (or cd! ;D) & my mood is lifted so amazingly! :) it's like a wonderful drug, feeling really
high when i listern to them. It's the best drug to make me better (no matter what the doctor says! ;D :P)
Maybe we should make up our own 12 step Beatles Program! ;D ;)

Shame Sandra... I had root canal done to me too- took bloody 8 hours! Did the dentist say anything?  :P

you know you're a fan when

you realise someone else if a fan, yet you didn't know it before, and it makes you happy for the rest of the day!

this happened to me today- in my Philosophy class, this boy's phone suddenly went off and his ringtone was 'I'm Only Sleeping' and he would never have struck me as a fan but on peering over in his direction, I noticed low and behold, he had an abbey road keyring on his bag...and 'all you need is love' graffittied on his workbook! I sat there grinning insanely and hoping he wouldn't notice, and it made my day! You see, I must confess I'm rather a subtle beatles fan, and only my friends and family know I'm pretty obsessed! So I probably wouldn't strike anyone as a beatles fan either unless they knew me well enough!

Oop sorry long anicdote there!

Eight hours!!!! Good lord! Mine only took about and hour and a half. If even. I would have died if it took more than that. I needed to get out of that chair. And worse than the pain in the mouth was the torturous elevator music that was playing in the backround. That's enough to drive anybody crazy.

You know you're a Beatles fan when ... you get annoying if one Beatle gets left out, for instance if someone mentions only 3 of them when they should mention four, and you feel the need to shout out the name of the Beatle they missed.

 I did this today to a friend- she goes 'John, Ringo, umm Paul and ummmm...ummmm...ummmm' and so I yelled 'GEORGE!' (embarassingly turning a few heads in doing so!) But, well what can I say? I felt the need to leap to George's defense!

George was. as you imagine it made me feel very angry! >:(

let me start off by saying, my family likes to name the plants in our garden. its kinda wierd, i know, but i think my little sister started it. So, my parents bought a cluster of 4 birch trees, and since my mom knows im a huge beatles fan, she decides to name them George, John, Ringo, and Paul.

Now, heres the being a fan part, my little sister comes into my room one day, before we even got the trees, and says, "Guess what Mommy decided to name the birch trees." and i said, without any doubts or hesitation, "John, Paul, George and Ringo." and she just kinda stares at me and is like, "Yeah! How did you know?" and I was like, "I have no clue. It was just the first four names that belonged together that i thought of."

My mom says she has a butcher cover as well, but I've yet to see it. It's conveniently lost in my grandmother's attic. XD

She also says she has Rubber Soul with the song "I've Just Seen A Face". It begins, stops, and begins again. Until a long while after hearing the correct version, she thought that it was supposed to pause like that-- but in reality, the guitar-player (I'm not sure the lead guitarist for the song was John or Paul since they're both credited to acoustic guitar for the song) had messed up and had started the song over and the company hadn't realized until many copies were released. =3

You use Beatles shirts as pajamas.  (As if listening to them all day long isn't enough, you gotta sleep with 'em too.)
You treat their concert programs and tickets--from the Beatle days or solo--as holy relics.   ;D
You let someone borrow your favorite Beatles movie and almost immediately have regrets afterwards!  (I let someone borrow my "AHDN" DVD and have been suffering from withdrawal for weeks...)

Yeah, it would be incredible to be able to meet and talk to all the Beatles.  I would probably be very nervous and shy talking with John, George, and Ringo, but I'd turn into a total quivering mess if I could talk to Paul.  LOL!   :o :o :K)  I have no idea what I could say to any of them--I would most likely embarrass myself by stammering incoherently and staring at them with my mouth agape. ??) :B

you say, "im going on the computer." and your little sister goes, "on the FORUM?" in a wierd, annoying voice. and you say, "maybe.........."
freakchic says that some people should name their airplane (engineering project) Lucy, and you immediatly say "IN THE SKY WITH DIAMONDS!" while it takes a few minutes for other people to get it.
you try to write the word "beats" in a story, and end up writing Beatles, and just changing the story to include the Beatles in it!

Yeah...  Whenever I see the word "beetles," I often think it's spelled wrong too.  Even now, I am just itching to scratch out the second "e" and replace it with an "a."   ;D

You know you're a fan when...

You walk into a music store, and if you see some Beatles or solo CD's, you think, "Oooh, I want those!" although you already own them.
You park your car, but you don't want to leave because you'd rather listen to the Beatles or solo songs that are playing.
You go into a grocery store and "Band On the Run" comes on the overhead stereo, and you are delighted that you're not the only person who's singing along to the song.

A lot of these are pretty interesting, some are repeats but I'll get over it. :)

I remember saying this a while back, I think, but I'll say it again because I just read a post that mentioned it BUT when I was little I really did think that Beatles was the only way to spell it, I just recently (well sort of i guess) discovered the double e spelling.

When you're on a fansite's forums for another musician (in my case, Josh Groban) and you've got a Beatles thread running and you spend more time on that than the other topics about the artist whose site it is...

Last night I was watching "The Simpsons" on DVD, about the time Homer gives Lisa a pony to win her love.  Unfortunately, he has to take on a second job to pay for her horse and becomes horribly sleep-deprived as a result.  While driving home at one point, Homer falls asleep at the wheel, and an instrumental for "Golden Slumbers" comes on during his dream sequence.  I was so excited, and I turned to my husband and almost shouted, "Oh my God!  It's from 'Abbey Road'!"

Yup.  The '95 calendar may even be older than some of the members here.  :)  

I'm thinking of cutting out the nice calendar pics and making sort of a collage with them.  I might as well, since they're getting no appreciation while being hidden away in storage and I have no other use for them.

you know you're a fan when you get mad and start yelling at your computer becuase Word says the following are words:

John
Lennon
Paul
McCartney
George
Harrison
Beatles
Starr

yet Ringo isnt! i mean, not only is it his name, but its also a word in Japanese! (and the fact that i went onto Word to see this is a little bit of a fan thing....)
.... Wow, FNU.... exactly the same as me!! (bigeyes1) I've done that before, too... I typed all of them in Word, and Ringo was the only one that gets the red underline... and I thought, how annoying...
Haha, we must be fans to a similar degree ;D
I should probably teach Word a new word and add Ringo to the dictionary :)

You lucky, lucky people who live in places where Beatles calendars are being sold... ;)

You know you're a fan when...

You visit your local music stores and realize that their Beatles and solo CD's are badly disorganized (with stuff from Beyonce in their section, even).  You decide to do the store a "favor" and reorganize the CD's for them.
You throw a fit when you're in these music stores and you notice that an employee stuck on a Jesse McCartney advertisement in Paul McCartney's section.  (angry1)  You then remove the advertisement in disgust and stick it somewhere else.

You know you're a fan if...

You start to think about John and George, and you wonder what they might be doing if they were still alive today. :(
You wish all the Beatles could live forever.
You think Heather Mills is a troll.  (Hahaha.)
You'd be willing to shell out money for the entire Beatles' catalog in all their remastered glory.
You're on a social networking site and you use a Beatles pic as your profile photo.
You'd saw off your foot just to spend a day with the Beatles.   ;D ;D :P
You "hear" Beatles songs in people's conversations; for instance, if they use words such as "yesterday" or "something."

You know you're a fan...

...when you put their birthdays on the calendar and decorate your bedroom door on their birthday with their pictures and stuff that says "Happy Birthday" and do a whole bunch of other junk. And when you're almost as excited for their birthdays as your own.

Then my Dad came in, saw me deliberating over what to write and said "just write Ringo Starr". For some reason I got really embarrassed then, haha :B ;D

What defines an obsessed Beatle fan? Here, we can list things that we do or things that we think an obsessed fan would do! ;D

You know you're a fan when...

...the only thing that gets you through your day job is knowing that a Beatle song could come on at any moment! (If the place plays a bunch of random music.)

...all you listen to is the Beatles or any other music having to do with John, Paul, George, or Ringo.

...your favorite movie is AHDN, Help!, MMT, or Yellow Submarine.

...you stay up late downloading rare Beatles tracks.

List yours. ;D

Oh this is fun. I definitely have a borderline unhealthy obsession

-I have about 400 favorites on my YouTube list and the vast majority is Beatle related

-I annoy my dad by talking about the beatles nonstop (which is saying something because he's a HUGE fan, and he's the one who turned me on to them in the first place)

-I listen to the classic rock station at my work (a daycare) and if a Beatles song comes on I immediately shush all the kids and turn it waaay up. I bought the Rockabye Baby Beatles Lullaby CD to play for the kids at naptime just so I can covertly listen to the Beatles :)

1.  I totally understand this.  If I had the space and extra money to burn, I'd run out and buy a Hofner bass like Paul's.  I saw an imitation Hofner bass (by Epiphone) long ago and got ridiculously excited.

2.  *is guilty*  But be sneaky...play Beatles music in the background when you're with them and see if they like it at all.  Don't let them know it's the Beatles for a while.

3.  I don't think that's true...  Ringo and Paul are still around today, they look fine for being nearly 70, and they're still pretty strong and healthy.  And I think George might have had a better chance of living longer despite his cancer if it weren't for the idiot psycho who stabbed him repeatedly.

2. You start pronouncing "girl" as "gairl".
3. Playing the guitar, you start bending and straightening at the knees like a weightlifter, or else bobbing your head from side to side, depending on whether you're a John man or a Paul man.
4. You know just one complete sentence in French.
5. You have a picture of Yoko Ono dead centre on your dartboard.

I've been a fan all my life...I remember being wheeled into the operating room before a major and very frightening surgery. I was so scared and nervous. But then as I got in the room I heard "Something" from The Beatles playing. One of the Doctors had a radio in the room and it was playing The Beatles.  It was at that moment I relaxed and new everything was going to be okay. The surgery was a success and I thank The Fabs for giving me the strength and faith to getting me through one of the toughest times of my life.

Yeah, which is kind of why I don't bother listening to the radio anymore, aside from oldies.  (Not just for the lack of Beatles, but perhaps the lack of good music in general.)  This is why albums are a blessing. ;)

You know you're a fan when you want to dress like the Beatles:

I have decided the Sgt. Pepper look will not work for me because I'm a female, so I'd be okay with getting a Shea Stadium Beatles jacket instead.  At least I'd be able to wear something like that outdoors without getting odd looks.  I have no idea where to find a beige Nehru jacket just like the Beatles', though.

You know you're a fan (especially a Help! fan) when your lecturer mentions the MIT during a research methodology class and the first thing that pops into your head is "MIT was after me, you know... wanted me to rule the world for them!" .... That was me on Tuesday ;D ;D

You know the names of all their parents.
You like to discuss which Beatles shirt you're wearing today.
You wait and wait for any of their stuff to go on sale (especially DVD's).

You know what, Mrs Lennon, I did exactly that last Tuesday! (bigeyes1) In my research methodology class the lecturer said something like "the Communism that Marx had in mind is not necessarily the same as how Lenin interpreted it", and I honestly thought "what's John Lennon got to do with that? I mean, Marx was on the Sgt Pepper album, but so what?"  Then I realised he was talking about Lenin.... oops! :B ;D

That made me laugh ;D.

On another similar note, a few months ago I received a movie called "Dirty Filthy Love" (it's not a porn, it's about a guy with OCD who falls in love with woman with OCD).
In the movie at one point the two are looking at a very tall building.
The man says that he likes it or something and says something like "isn't it beautiful?"
The woman says "I guess one would like it...if they're name's Lenin (or Lennon...not sure who she was talking about)".

Has anyone seen this movie?
The man is played by Michael Sheen (Underworld: Rise of the Lycans) and the woman is played by Shirley Henderson (Moaning Myrtle).

Ok, back to the topic:

You might be a fan if you've seen X-Men Origins, and this particular line made you grin like mad:

^I'm really sorry for your loss.

I love both of those albums and want to replace them immediately, but with the remasters coming out I should probably wait.  But I'm not sure that I can go 3 months w/o them.  My grandmother bought the Past Masters for me approx 20 years ago and it has been special to me for that reason as well.

^  LOL.  Paul has a terrible intoxicating effect on me, apparently.  ;)  Or basically all the Beatles in general.  Even small Paul/Beatles references in everyday life send me in overdrive, it's really pathetic.   ;D :B

Haha trust me, I know what you mean... I have this bookmark I made and printed out a bunch of pics of Paul and stuck them all over it!! lol. Everyone calls me 'Mrs. McCartney' or 'Beatle'. Oh! And you also know your a fan when instead of singing lullabys to baby's you sing Sgt. Pepper!! lol I do this! My mum works at a daycare in the infant room! (grin)

You know you're a fan when...
- You've pretty much destroyed two of your other perfectly good posters of other bands you like, but really don't care; it's more room for your new Beatles posters.

- You found a Beatles sweatshirt in pretty much 3 times your clothing size, but bought it anyway. Just to be safe.

- A radio station for your area does "Breakfast With The Beatles" on Sundays and you totally freak out when you miss it, even though its only 45 minutes and basically 6 songs with oodles of commercials. It's still the Beatles to you!

Here's a fun little story that only gives even more proof that the Beatles are the best!
I was at a little street fair, and there was a guy selling new and used CDs.  I walked over to look through and see what he had.  He told me that "some of the better bands' CDs are 'slightly used.'"  I picked up a copy of Sgt. Pepper and its dirty, cracked cover fell off.  The better bands are used, alright!  ;)

Indeed, sort of.  Back in high school, I once wrote an English composition about a person who was based on someone I didn't like in real life.  He got attacked by a dog in that story.  (grin)  The dog was also based on someone I didn't like.   ;D  The teacher said it was an odd story but I got full credit for it.  I'm bad.....I know. :B

That story made me laugh...^
Very true. Although, I've found that it is very fun to write about something you absolutely loathe and try to put it in a positive light.
For example, one time I was supposed to write about the favorite thing I was taught in school that year. I wrote about the time we were
learning how to play football (American) in gym class. I HATED IT.  ;D So I said 'I just love the fact that when I punt the ball, it goes directly behind me' and so on. I got a good grade on the thing, even. (laugh2)

To keep with the topic, you know you're a fan when somebody sends you a postcard with the Beatles on it.

You're a fan when these things happen when you visit the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Annex in NYC:

-You "Aww" when you see this little boy (who was obviously VERY into the Beatles) looking at all the Beatles things there with an amazed expression on his face. Not to mention he was also singing along (loudly and obnoxiously haha!) to Beatles songs that would play in there.
-You freak out when you see a girl just a little older than you in a cool Beatles shirt walking around.
-You are very happy when in the gift shop, a man allows you to take a quick picture on your phone of the framed picture of Paul 'flipping the bird' (and it is now your phone's background).
And last but not least:
-You cried in the John Lennon New York years exhibit. In front of other people. When you usually never, EVER cry.

That happens to me a lot too. I was listening to the radio the other day and the DJ was listing off artist's names that were coming up and I half screamed when he said Paul McCartney, I wasn't even paying close attention to the radio. Just his name triggers it. It happens with all the Beatles and it's worse with George. They play Let It Be and Here Comes the Sun a lot on my radio station and every time I have to stop everything and listen even though I have the CD's and have heard them a thoudand times.

I went to go watch "Bruno" and Paul McCartney flashed on the screen for several seconds.  I just GAAAAa**SPED out loud in the theater when he popped up--as I ALWAYS do whenever I see Macca unexpectedly.  It's insane.  I know I need to quit freaking out because it is embarra**ing, but it's like a knee-jerk reaction that's been ingrained in me for years.

Me + Paul = I have issues.

OMG! I had the same reaction. I couldn't help it, it was so unexpected. My friend just told me to STFU. XP

...when you do a double-take whenever you see the word "lemon," mistakenly thinking it was "Lennon."

...when you immediately stop walking so you could stare at the John Lennon poster you've spotted across the street and your friends have to drag you away to bring you back to your senses.  (Well, he looked really hot in that poster ;P)

...when you plan to name your future children any Beatle-related names.

Haha I think we have a Johnny girl on our hands  ;) And yes wonderland, it works very well!!

You're a fan when you do the following things at an amusement park:
-Count the people wearing Beatles t-shirts (got 6 yesterday)
-Freak out when you find that there's a band there that plays Beatles songs
-Buy a Beatles picture that they're selling there.... even though you already don't have enough room for Beatles stuff you already have

And of course, if you're listening to Breakfast With The Beatles on a local radio station as you type this.  ;D

You go to a store that has personalized name tags and you have to find "Paul" "John" "George" and "Richard" before you leave.

When your on the phone in your kitchen and you have the TV on in the background in another room and someone on the TV says "Ringo's" so you freak and run in, almost running into the couch. You then realize they're talking about a town called Ringeos in New Jersey and you get disappionted (It was my best friend on the line and she's gotten used to it so I didn't really have to explain)  ;D

that's a good one georgeharrisonluver! I think I've done something like that before. ;)

Don't normally get into these things, but last week a woman I work with was telling us how she was in a hospital room with her family waiting to find out if her aunt had a brain tumor.*
She said "blah blah and then the doctor came in..."
I interupted and asked "was he stinking of gin?" Thankfully she just glanced at me and carried on.
Ha ha. Isn't life funny.

The Beatles CD's in my car are all burned copies of the originals. If I get the remasters, then I'm switching the originals to my car CD's. We are total geeks, man!

You're working on a Beatles-related project with a hot glue gun, and you're far more worried about injuring the Beatle object and not yourself.

BTW, I was in Borders and Barnes and Noble yesterday, and BOTH stores were playing the Beatles' remasters on their stereo systems. You know you're a fan if hearing Beatles songs in stores makes you happy. :) And both stores were selling Beatles merch too.

yah I went in again yesterday! It was so hard to resist not getting a stereo cd. But one of these days I will. I'll probably just start collecting them. But I gotta wait, my rockband is coming soon!

let's see, you know you're a fan when you change your desktop background almost everyday from one Beatley picture to the next. =)

actually, it's really funny, i had this pic up the other day and my friend was over, and he is NOT a Beatles fan (BOO him!) and he was like, "who's that?!?!?!" so i was all "Ringo Starr." and was just like, "Oh, ok." he had NO idea who that was. but it was a little awkward considering the picture and my friend being a guy....God, look at him in that picture! one of my favorites.

I know what you mean. It's just that using a background slideshow is easier because it automatically changes pictures for me (muhahaha). The Beatles are such handsome boys, too much eye candy and so little time!

I do those things as well, when I notice someone walking with a Beatles shirt on I stop and stare and give them a smile when they look at me with a look that says "what are you staring at?!"

And at work, when they play a Beatles song I go "Beatles!" but no one seems to care, so I just sing to myself. There has been a lot of John songs on the radio at work lately. Woohoo!

George - Arnold Grove
Paul - Forthlin Road
John - Menlove Avenue
Ringo - Madryn Street

There are other streets they've lived on, I'm sure, but those are the only ones I can remember at the moment. Yes, I am creepy! ha2ha

Edit: Wiki also mentions Admiral Grove for Ringo.

Yup, you are definitely a fan if you know the streets the Beatles grew up on!!

When you feel the urge to tell everyone in sight when a Beatles song comes on the radio that you know the song.
When you stay up all night watching their videos on youtube.
When you chose them as a topic in many of your english papers.
When you gets texts from your friends who don't even like the Beatles telling you that they're on t.v.
When you spend hours trying to learn their songs from a sheet music book you got from the library.
When seeing t-shirt after t-shirt of them in every single store irritates you because people they are becoming a "trend"

-When you're studying the map of Russia for World Geography (rivers, cities, landforms, countries surrounding it), you can't help but sing 'Back to the USSR' in your head. Actually, I'm trying to change the lyrics of the song so that all the rivers, landforms, cites, etc. i'm studying for are involved in it. ;D That could be a useful study method during the test.

When somebody says 'Beatles' you go up to them, even if they're complete strangers, and start a conversation.

When you step on a beetle, you say: "Oh no - I killed George!" and try to revive him.

I agree, my dad thinks I'm completely clueless about the beatles, he asks stuff like, "Did you know that their haircut was really popular back them?" or "John Lennon wrote Let it Be, you know."  ha2ha

When you come to school with a John shirt on, people immeaditely ask you, "Isn't that a Beatle?" And you say, "Yes, did you expect any different from me?" "No, Not really." LOL! And when you doodle song lyrics on your papers instead of actual drawings ;D

You know you're a fan..
In school, we were playing a game called 'Buzzword' It's a word game where one word is the 'buzz' word, and the answers are all phrases that have the buzz word in them. Somebody gives clues, and people have to guess what the phrase is. The buzz word was 'Star' and one of the clues was 'Beatles' drummer'
and I SCREAM "Ringo Starr!" so
"You know you're a fan" when, after the game, the other team complains that it wasn't fair that they gave my team a Beatles related clue. ha2ha

^ nice! i've got another school one...

me and freakchic are in the same English class, and when my teacher was explaining that Romeo 'wanted to hold her hand' (her being Juliet), she says, "and for out Beatles fans" *looks at me and freakchic, then sings I Want To Hold Your Hand* *me and freakchic exchange looks and laugh because it had already crossed our minds*

so, when your teacher sings Beatles songs to you to help you understand literature.

so you virtually 'watch' "Help!" in your head (and you've seen it enough times to be able to do that!)
Ahahaha! Classic!

-When your gym class is in the weight room, and the classic rock station is on, and you're teacher is asking who sings the song, etc. Then "I Am The Walrus" comes on, and in the first two second of the song you scream, "I AM THE WALRUS, THE BEATLES, RELEASED IN 1967 ON 'MAGICAL MYSTERY TOUR' EP IN BRITAIN, AND ON THE 'MAGICAL MYSTERY TOUR LP' IN AMERICA. ALSO ISSUED AS A B SIDE TO 'HELLO GOODBYE'. WRITTEN BY JOHN LENNON PRIMARILY TO POKE FUN AT FANS WHO READ TOO MUCH INTO THEIR LYRICS. MANY LYRICS TAKEN DIRECTLY FROM DRUG RELATED EXPERIENCES". Then when everyone started at you, you didn't feel embarrassed at all  ;D
You done it?!? Wow ADMIRATION!!!!! I once debated the song origins of Julia with my economics teacher (he didnt have a clue). And in the same class, Strawberry Fields was on and when "suger plum fairy" came on, someone said "ooh, he is saying Paul is dead" and I say "no! he says suger plum fairy". And then I blush and look down as people stare at me weirdly  :-[

^LOL Penny! I have that problem all the time! People ask me the dumbest questions cause they think I'm like 15 or something. It can become irritating!
Yea! People think I am 16 (I guess its partly the way I dress. There's an old man in dancing who tells me I am 12 but he is joking). When I talk about the Beatles my friend says "how can you like their music, you werent even there" I mean what the hell! Grrr!   >:(

Speaking of Converse shoes, there was a 'rumor' that they were going to make a pair of Beatle Converse. I was so excited because I had bought the limited edition Pink Floyd's, so I thought the idea of the Beatles were awesome! But now they said they won't, or it's on hold, or something.  :-\

So this week I'm going to the store, buying the old school Converse and then sticking the Beatles logo over the Converse one!  ;D It'll do until they make an official pair.  ha2ha

Ahaha, well done :)
On mine ... "I Will" is number one, played 72 times - it's my favourite song. Coming in at second and third are "If I Fell" played 37 times and "And I Love Her" played 29. Notice how all these songs are by Paul? :p

"If I Fell" is by John. ;)

At the moment my most played is "That's What It Takes" by George, with "Art of Dying" and "Wilbury Twist" close behind... but I just redid my iTunes so it's different than it was before.

Also, you know you're a fan when you spend 12 bucks to change your brother's XBox Live gamertag from "Chief Spartan 25" to "ynotringo" because you're sick of Beatles Rock Band players thinking you like Halo...  ;D

You know you're a fan when you're in English class talking about a project and your friend say's we have to come together some time to finish it and you and another friend,who is also a Beatles fan, start singing Come Together at the same time :)

Oh my goodness I remember not talking to my cousin for an entire month because she came into my room when i had jus put up some posters and she was like.." I have no idea who you like waking up to their faces they're not even goodlooking." I swear i wanted to smack her!!

I dunno where people get the gall to say the Beatles were unattractive!  >:( :P

My cousins have been nice about my posters at my parents' house. One said that my hubby looks like one of the Beatles (dunno which one she meant, though), and another young one was trying to learn all their names.  ;D

I do that! I've taken to calling it my song of the day. Although for me it's always songs that are really annoying to be stuck in your head. Like "Martha My Dear," which is great unless you're humming the same bit over and over. Or "Wah-Wah."

Or, god forbid, "Yellow Submarine." Haven't had it happen yet, but the day it does will probably be my last...   :P

Yeah my mum was a little insulting without meaning to...  she does listen to The Beatles sometimes but for obvious reasons regarding my dad, she doesn't particularly love them.
And I couldn't believe it once when I think "You've Got To Hide Your Love Away" came on, and she listened to John singing and said "is that Paul?"  And I said "NO, it's John!" and she replied "well I don't know, I can't tell the difference."  So I indulged a little on how John's voice is raspy and hoarse, whereas Paul is a bit of a sweetie vocal-wise (minus the screaming!), and she said "well I can never tell.  I don't think their voices are amazing anyway.  They can sing a tune, but that's about it."

I watched 'I am Sam' today, and Sam was a HUGE Beatle nut! It made me laugh, he even named his kid 'Lucy Diamond' Sound track sounded...odd, but it was still a very sweet movie.

I LOVE that soundtrack. Rufus Wainwright's version of Across the Universe, and Sarah McLachlan's version of Blackbird are just wonderful - IMO.

You know you're a fan when you're watching the film "50 First Dates" and because your friend momentarily walks out of the room, you HAVE to rewind it just so he can watch:

Lucy:  I'm sorry, I have a boyfriend.
Henry:  Oh, now you're making up a boyfriend just so you can get rid of me?
Lucy:  No!
Henry:  Well what's his name?
Lucy:  ...Ringo.

Lucy:  No, McCartney!

Oh, I vaguely remember that! Ringo McCartney, cute!! ;D

"Apparently, his mother had meant to name him after a heroic uncle, a spy supposedly, who died in World War II, but his father, Robbie, meant to name him after Paul McCartney".

This, of course, leads you certainly picture the character like Paul, and be really happy.

I found this absolutely hilarious, even though it made me a complete dork because I'm so obsessed with the boys.  I was in a hotel on Friday and naturally the First US Visit came into my head simply because I was in a hotel room.  But nothing prepared me for the painting on the wall...  I think it was supposed to be trees on the edge of a river, but they were a bit abstract so they looked like lollipops rather than trees.  There were four of them, and one of them was on the opposite side of the river to the other three, making it look shorter than the other...  So naturally I shouted "Ringo, I've done an abstract!"  *Points to the little one*  "Is that one me?"  "No, that's the married one!" ;D
I am the biggest dork.   ;sorry

When in another book you read (literally just read this part haha) there is a character named Paul, and you already picture him like Paul McCartney. but then you read this:

"Apparently, his mother had meant to name him after a heroic uncle, a spy supposedly, who died in World War II, but his father, Robbie, meant to name him after Paul McCartney".

This, of course, leads you certainly picture the character like Paul, and be really happy.

Later in this same book, the character named after Paul says that his father (Who was very into the counterculture of the 60s) went to India "like a Beatle"

and then later the two female characters (who live in New York City) are walking around Strawberry Fields in Central Park and then mention the "Imagine" design there.

I wonder if this author really likes The Beatles?

And yeah, my mum bought me some Beatles wrapping paper from the shop "Past Times".  They sell various old-fashioned Beatles things, like alarm clocks and such, and she found the paper and hid it until my birthday.  It's a massive collage of all their album and EP covers.

EDIT: In the same magazine, there was an article about Spring fashion, and they really highlighed Stella McCartney's line, the title of the last section was called "All Together Now" and they ended it with a quote from Stella. I'm starting to think this may not be a coincidence now...

When KE and me were still new to Beatle fandom, we searched for downloadable Beatles songs and Mrs Robinson came up, labeled as a Beatles song :o For a while we wondered which Beatle sings the lead and why the accent is different, until we realised..... x_x

You know you're a fan when you can't stand it when people get Beatles facts wrong!! It drives me CRAZY! I am generally a nice person but this is one of my biggest pet peeves EVER!

Today at school, one of my classmates asked me about seeing Paul in concert. He then started to talk to me about the Beatles and he was saying that George Harrison was a great yet underrated guitarist. Then he tried using Blackbird as an example of one of George's best songs. FAIL.

I tried telling him that it was actually Paul's song, and he was like, "Well, Paul wrote the song and it was George doing the guitar work." And I had to shush him (he wouldn't listen to me) and say that it was Paul's song AND Paul was playing the guitar. I'm not kidding, there's a Beatles-era video out there of Paul playing this piece in the studio.

I wonder if I made the guy mad...he thought we were arguing?...but then again, he also thought that the Beatles played at the Hollywood Bowl in 1962. Fail fail fail!

Yes, clearly I have nothing better to do. :P

I also HATE it when people get things about The Beatles wrong.  We have this stupid lecturer at university and she claims to "love" The Beatles, but then gets loads of things about them wrong.  She thought Paul wrote "Here Comes The Sun", and she said that John was only capable of writing hard rock songs (erm...  JULIA, for a start?) and Paul was only capable of writing soppy love songs (I do believe I'M DOWN will have something to say about that!).  Once I showed her the chord sequence to the verses of "Dig A Pony", and she picked one chord out and said "John Lennon wasn't very good at music, so he didn't mean to put this chord, he just didn't know any better.  I think he meant to do this instead, it would make a lot more sense.  But then again, John wouldn't have known that because he didn't really know anything."  She also talked about how The Beatles were one of the first bands to incorporate Indian influences into popular music, and played "Norwegian Wood", but the version she played was a crap cover band covering The Beatles really badly, and she couldn't tell that it wasn't The Beatles!  I hate how she flounces around saying she loves a band so much and claims to know so much about them, and then just either gets everything wrong about them, or gives an opinion that completely contradicts what she's just said.  She's such a DICK!!!  *Rant over*   2ch

When you've finally, slowly, converted your friend to becoming a fan.
The thing is, I honestly hardly did anything to covert her, she's always liked 'oldies' music (as she says).
Then a few weeks ago she finally mentions a Beatles song she likes that's NOT an overplayed radio song.
"I really like 'If I Fell' and 'I Love Her'." She tells me.
I had put some albums on her iPod ages back, but really only thier earlier stuff and she wanted to get rid of 'most of the songs she didn't know'.
She's been my best friend for years and she's never dissed The Beatles, I just think she's becoming a true fan.
I bought her a small Beatles book for her birthday last week.

(I was meant to be about whether it's grammatically correct to use the phrase 'aller ensemble', but it came out all wrong because I was embarrassed asking her about something Beatles related xD)

I did that two years ago.  ;)
I had a 'sexy Sgt. Pepper' outfit. The costume was KICK-ASS. It had REALLY short shorts, lol.

I couldn't find his house at Admiral Grove. Which made me pretty upset.  :-[

Anyways I was at Saturday market the other day and I heard this guy say "Look it's Ringo!" and I got all excited looking around to find him. But it was just a hand painted picture of him some vendor was selling. It wasn't even very flattering, so I didn't buy it.

I did somthing sort-of-kind-of similar - I was at a Gamestop recently and they had Beatles Rockband, I already had the game since September (and had already known about it waaaaaay before that), but I usually play it at home with a Guitar Hero guitar (I only got the game itself).
 
Soooooo... there was a demo at the store with ONE actual Rockband guitar, but there was NO GREEN BUTTON on the guitar, thus, making it unplayable.

I said, loudly in a rather quiet store "HOW DO THEY EXPECT ME TO PLAY A DEMO OF BEATLES ROCKBAND WHEN THERE IS NO GREEN BUTTON?!"

"AND HOW DO THEY POSSIBLY EXPECT ME TO PLAY "I SAW HER STANDING THERE" WITHOUT SHAKING MY HEAD AND GOING "WOOOOOOO!"?!"  ;D

My mum's friend used to laugh so hard at that.  Whenever I did that song, I couldn't NOT do it for the life of me!  When I first got my hair cut into the style I have it now, he also commented that it looks better than my old haircut.  I'd describe it as a girlish Beatle-cut, but he just said "your old haircut was a bit "Woooooo!""  *Shakes head*  :P

On our buses, we have a machine that charges you money when you swipe your card. And when you have a low balance on your card it says "card value low" . So yesterday I was on the bus listening to some Beatles song and I heard instead of "card value low", I heard "Cant buy me love" !!!!  And I was thinking to myself "you know you're a fan...!"

And in a similar vein to your doodling, you know you're a Beatles fan when you get bored in class and always draw either "All You Need Is Love" surrounded by flowers, little stick-Beatles complete with stick-instruments, or John's round glasses.  :)

- when 'they don't like the beatles' is a perfectly acceptable reason not to be friends/go out with someone. (there was this one guy I knew, it was going great, but then he told me he hated the beatles. RELATIONSHIP OVER ;D)
- you go on the John Lennon artificial intelligence program and try to convince him that yoko is evil and that he should marry you (yeah Im real cool)
- you spell 'beetles' like 'beatles' even if it will lose you marks on your schoolwork
- if the Beatles are mentioned, everyone stares at you
- if you get into an arguement with someone who says that Lucy in the sky with diamonds is about LSD
- this may be just me, but: if you tear up in non-sad parts of movies if a beatles song plays (I cried all the way through I am Sam because of the songs, and they were only covers! The movie was great too though :P)

When you buy Ringo Starr tickets and don't think it would be outragous to buy the $550 dollar package which I wanted, I mean it was RIGHT in front, but we got tickets farther back  :-X I'm still exited though!!!! Hopefully I can see though!!! :D

I am so jealous of you getting to see Ringo in concert. I live about 130 miles away from where he's playing in MN and I can't see him. :( Maybe next year.

You know you're a Beatles fan when you're talking about accents, and instead of typing "Geordie", you type "Georgie".  And on a similar line, you know you're a Beatles fan when you're watching Paul's "Good Evening New York City" DVD and you have a little excitement fit when he refers to George as "Georgie", and you exclaim "I knew I wasn't the only one to call him that!"  *Dork*  ;D

You know you're a Beatles fan when you have mini freak-outs ALL the way through your morning lecture because it's all about Indian classical music and how it was adopted by The Beatles in the 60's, and not only do you dance in your chair to every song, you mime all the words AND play "air sitar" to a Ravi Shankar song...  I am the biggest dork in my year.  ;D
It was extra funny too, because the tutor played an Indian band covering I Want To Hold Your Hand but with Indian words, and asked if anyone could tell which Beatles song they were covering.  Me and another guy both said the answer at the same time, but the tutor kinda took the guy's answer instead of mine, so I was determined to get something right just to jokingly snub him...  And then the tutor showed one of Kula Shaker's album covers that had Krishna and Rada on the front, and he asked if anyone knew what the male figure was, and I quite loudly shouted "KRISHNA!!!" in a voice that was way more aggressive that I intended!  GOD I'm such a dork.  I was the only one in the class that knew it, though.  Three cheers for insufferable know-it-alls...   ;sorry

You know you're a fan when...

-For your high school senior class, you got the superlative "Most likely to fit in better in a different decade." I got that just because the whole school knows I'm a Beatles fan!

-It's impossible for someone to turn their head in your bedroom and not see a Beatles' face.

-Someone says the word "Fallin'" and you immediately get I've Just Seen a Face stuck in your head. "Fallin', yes I'm fallin'..." Happens to me all the time. Let's just say I've heard that song A LOT of times, it's sad. Lol.

-You become less of a shy person. I'm pretty shy, but if I see a stranger with a Beatles shirt or something, I'll compliment them and find any way to talk to them. I never would do that before I became a fan. I get excited when I see another fan and love running into them.

Well, Doctor Who has been running o TV since 1963, and they obviously couldn't keep the same actor that long. So what happens to him is when he dies, he regenerates every atom in his body and gets a new heart, and lives. Which in the real world equals getting a new actor.

Aaah, fair enough.  I've been in love with Queen since I was about 9 years old.  My mum is a hardcore fan and she played them all the time when I was young, so I picked it up.  That was my youth, my dad provided The Beatles and my mum did Queen!  Although I'm totally jealous of my mum cos she's met ALL of Queen including Freddie, and that was the best encounter!   :o

HAHA we are so [un]cool.   8)
Anyway, getting back to the topic...
You know you're a Beatles fan (and post-Beatles fan) when your mum's making tea and she asks you how you want something cooking, and your mind inexplicably jumps to the "McCartney" album and you sing "cook like a woman, OOOHOOOO!", and then get stared at.  :D

To be honest, if being a Beatles and related people fan makes me uncool, I couldn't give less of a crap.  DORKS UNITE!   8)

You know you're a Beatles fan when you end up being given morphine in hospital, and the doctor says "it's a bit like LSD, you're going to feel very detached and trippy", and when you're actually experiencing the morphine, you're totally out of it but STILL have enough Beatle-sense in you to get Tomorrow Never Knows in your head and jokingly say "wow, I never new morphine was so spiritual...  I can hear sitars!"   ha2ha

Okay, you definitely know you're a Beatles fan when THIS happens!

I was watching Family Fortunes with my parents earlier, which if you don't know, is a bad 80's TV game show, and random correct answers come with a special prize that they get to have for free.  One family won a trip to London, and it came up with a selection of pictures of London when the prize was announced.  And I just happened to notice something in the tiniest corner of one of the pictures...  So I shouted "BEATLES!", and everyone went "what?!", so we rewound the show and paused it on the images of London and one of the pictures was taken outside the Apollo Theatre, and it just so happened that on the board in lights above the entrance was a sign that read - in the tiniest almost intellegible letters - "John Paul George Ringo".  The picture flashed up for literally two seconds, and I was the only one who noticed it, so they all laughed and said I was the most unbelievable dork to actually spot a Beatles reference in a completely non-musical context and in a picture that was so small that came up for such a short flicker of time...  :P
