A couple years ago, I used to hear Paul's "Young Boy" EVERY time I went into TJ Maxx (and trust me, that's pretty often!). I hear all sorts of songs in stores - so much so that I barely notice it anymore, but the one time I heard "Helter Skelter", I CERTAINLY noticed that!! [img]graemlins/uh1.gif[/img]

I was at the Oxford Valley Mall with my friend and as we were walking, what came on but Paul's "Another Day!" I started to sing of course.

I hear Come Together and Penny Lane alot on the radio, but there's a station that plays a lot of old and obscure songs and they play I'll Cry Instead almost every time I listen to it

Oddly enough, I hear songs from the "Please Please Me" album the most! I recently heard "P.S. I Love You" and "I Saw Her Standing There" at Wal-Mart. [img]graemlins/smile1.gif[/img]

I hear "Let It Be" quite often on the mall radio. However I've heard some really unexpected Beatles and solo tunes on the mall radio at my local mall. Which is about the only thing that can be said for my local mall. It's a small little thing with stores all geared towards the popular teenager and teenagers in general. You know American Eagle, Old Navy, Gap, DEB, Rave, and Aeropostale.

I heard "Watching the Wheels" when I was eating at Uno's Pizza one time. Mostly, I usually hear "Maybe I'm Amazed" or "Yesterday".

Well, I can't remember the last "Beatles" song I heard while shopping but a few months ago I heard My Sweet Lord being played on the loudspeakers in a big shopping mall and in my local grocery store about a year ago I heard Traveling Wiburys Vol.3 of all things being played.

I hear 'If I Fell' all the time! It's my fav love song. Hearing John and Paul sing this together almost makes me cry, and always makes me sing! [img]graemlins/sun.gif[/img]

I hear Hey Jude often, although I don't usually go shopping that much. Personally I think that because it was the Beatle's biggest hit it's been overplayed a lot...

I hear Maybe I'm Amazed a lot while in the stores, plus If I Fell--those are the 2 I hear most often. In general I usually hear more Paul solo material than anything by the Fabs, solo or group.
