It was in 8th grade, my histroy teacher made us do a project on the 60s. She said she wished she could have lived back then. Each student had a different part of the 60s to do. Mine was on Woodstock. I looked up some of the bands that played there on youtube and gradually I came upon the Beatles. After that I was hooked!

Me and that teacher had so many Beatle conversations. xD She had this game we would play where she would write names(of the people we were learning about) on the board and names of random people, then ask each row a question where you had to pick a person on the board. One time she had Yoko Ono on there and when someone guessed it, we looked at each other and started laughing. xD She was the best teacher everr.

Sorry about the novel^ :P

I didn't, my parents did in the 1960's.

I did in the 4th grade. Our music teacher, Mrs. Berry, set aside the curriculum for a week and we listened to and sang songs from The Red and Blue albums. It's the one instance that I can say conclusively that a teacher changed my life.

Maybe if you talk "Grades" add a year to it so it's clear als when it was?

For me, 1963, being 6 years old and in a record store, looking back on it maybe an odd age to be there, but they played "She Loves You" and that's when it started.

I don't remember becoming aware of them because I was born in the '60s and they were just always there. But then we got the Rock Band game a couple of years ago and my kids became full-blown Beatlemaniacs, so I gradually acquired all the CDs and that's how I got where I am today. : D

Because of Ringo 8'D
Well... 'With a little help from my friends'. because I really couldn't stand the rest of the beatles songs I knew =/ (and still can't). till I heard that one.
and I got bored over summer, so listened to some beatles songs on my ipod and then looked up Beatles interviews... and I was hooked. o___o
They were so cute and funny xD and I automatically loved Ringo.

In Grade Three (I was eight) I did a Beatles-themed Christmas concert with my school. And I've been hooked ever since.

I've always known and liked the Beatles, but Help! turned me into a Beatlemaniac.

I was listening to the Beatles before I was even born. My parents are both huge fans ... have been since the first Ed Sullivan show. I've tried once or twice to get daddy to come on this forum, but I don't think he has. They saw the Beatles twice in concert, once in Washington DC and then the last show at Candlestick Park. They've said that as concerts go, they were awful. The sound was terrible and the traffic even worse.

But who cares? It was the Beatles!

Me too... can't remember a time when I didn't know who they were. My older siblings had all the albums, and my mom bought me "The Chipmunks Sing the Beatles Hits" so that I could be in on the fun!

For all you Chipmunks haters, how can you deny their brilliance when you listen to this??!:

I think fate brought us together :D I'd barley even knew who the beatles were and what they have done until I was looking in a cabinet in our home office and found the Beatles "1" album. I decided to download it to iTunes, and I've Ben obsessed ever since :D I know about 200 Beatle songs, I know everything there
Is to know about them, and I love them like nothin else before! They opened up a whole new world to me that has sort of changed
My life :)

In 1981, ABBA were in decline and something was needed to fill the void in a young man's life.
Right on cue, a little-remembered band called Stars on 45 put out a Beatles medley (quite a good one, too) with near-sound-alike singers and convincing instrumental tracks. Funnily enough, the medley started with "Sugar Sugar", for reasons I've never understood.
The timing was poignant--I can't decide if it was a Lennon tribute or a Lennon cash-in.
Anyway, it stayed at number one in Australia for some weeks and I took a great interest in the Beatles from then on. My parents gave me the LP of "The Beatles' Ballads" for Christmas that year, which I still think is a great compilation.

I actually had a meltdown as a very young child when I heard those damn Chipmunks massacre Beatle songs.

"That's not the Beatles! That's the wrong speed," I'd wept. "Turn that off! It's bad! I want real Beatles, not pretend!" All these years later, I feel the same way.

A Ford Falcon really is a Better Idea. :

Thread resurrection!

My Mother was a teen during Beatlemania and I am a 70's kid. She played Beatles records since before I can remember, and she was a fan of Paul and Wings as well. Definitely a "turn it up" kind of girl when The Fab Four came on the radio.

So I guess She helped me discover them. I don't remember a time when i did not know them. She did a good job I guess, as the first cd I ever bought with my own money was The White Album. Still have them, still use them.

One Monday afternoon in mid-1962 my older cousin who was about 15 at the time, came to our house for tea in Liverpool and said she'd seen a rock group at The Cavern Club that lunchtime called 'The Beatles'. We all said "Ugh! What a horrible name!!" That's when I first heard OF The Beatles!
When I first HEARD The Beatles, of course, it was all different!
