Heard "I Want To Hold Your Hand" on the radio, in '63, and went Beatlemanic.

I actually was 7 when my father made me listen: Obla-di Obla-da (: in my opinion, what made them special and their songs was the way the composed every single one of them, to be totally & completely different as their first one, of course I think that every song, has it's message.

Welcome to the Forum!  So what do you think Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da's message is?  :)

I saw the Beatles on Ed Sullivan when I was a little kid.  Then my older sister, a teenager at that point, started listening to Meet the Beatles non-stop.  I still have her original, very beat-up copy of the album.  It meant that much to me.  My best friend in school was also a big Beatles fan, and we made our parents buy us every album as it came out.

Octopus's Garden came on the radio when I was 7 or 8, that was when I first heard them but I only truly discovered them and when I say discovered I mean having my mind blown away listening to every thing they've ever written 24/7 straight for 2 years discovered.

I'm new to this forum so thought this thread was probably the best one to do a first post.

I've had the Beatles around me since I can remember. Born in the early to mid 60s I have snippets of early memories such as the famous shadow picture on a single my older brothers had; one of my brothers good naturedly laughing when, as a four year old or some age like that, he found me pretending to play guitar and tap my foot like George did in the Beatles cartoons; trying to puzzle out what they'd done to John's face on the Hard Days Night cover (I was clearly very young then)  one brother, taking advantage of the short absence of another brother on a bike ride, playing the Hey Jude single he'd bought him for Xmas.

Great story, Moogmodule!  There's nothing like learning about the The Beatles, when they were fab, at an early age.

Welcome to the Forum!  Enjoy your stay.

Welcome Moogmodule! Sounds like we have something in common. I also have my older siblings to thank for my love of the Beatles. I have a lot of those little memories too, like peeking into my brother's bedroom while he and his buddy were listening to "Ticket to Ride". Glad you've joined us!

Thank you for the welcome from both you and Hello Goodbye. Glad to be here. It's an apt time to join. Christmas is a Beatle-y time of year for me. As well as my aforementioned anecdote on the Hey Jude Xmas present, my middle brother often got Beatles albums for Christmas. I still recall the back cover of Revolver sitting on the floor after he'd opened it. Such a great album and front and back cover.  I should add I think it was a few years old when he got it. More late than mid sixties. I'm not quite that old. Yet.

I grew up listening to their music. I'm in my early 30s and my mom has always been a Beatles fan. She saw them live in concert twice in the 60s when they were still touring.

When I was 13 I saw them on a Jack Paar talk show--not the Tonight Show--late in December 1963. One look, one listen and I was intrigued.

Welcome to the forums Cableye! It's always nice to meet someone who was lucky enough to be there when Beatlemania was happening. Well, I guess it's still happening, especially this year,but you know what I mean!

Hello everyone. I'm glad I found your forum. I have been a Beatles fan most of my life. I first saw them on Sullivan. In 1966 I had the privilege to see them live in concert. Then in 93 I saw the McCartney tour. Back in the day I could tell you most lyrics, but now I'm not so sure. The Beatles helped shape my musical life.

I look forward to reading the other threads. This is a great find. Cheers, Ron

I love stories from people who were fans back in the '60s.
