Default Re: You Know You\'re Obsessed with the Beatles When...

Having a car radio rule forbidding channel changes when a Beatle tune comes on. Loophole: "Yesterday" [img]graemlins/laugh5.gif[/img]

Having Beatle related pc passwords.

Spending too much time at B-Links posting like a fiend about them, day in and day out.

Getting an Apple logo tattoo (next month, to mark my 40th b-day)

Singing out loud in any store when a Beatle or solo song comes on. Yep, I get weird looks. I don't care. I do this in my car, too.

Proudly sporting a Beatle t-shirt while grocery shopping. I get more smiles from people when I do...hmm, are the mocking me? [img]graemlins/thinker.gif[/img]

When your child knows every song, knows the trivia and knows the AHDN script almost verbatim.
Hey, anything I can do to hone her memorizing skills to help fulfill her dream of someday becoming an actress. [img]graemlins/wink3.gif[/img]

Having Beatle coffee table books / reading material on display. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

Thinking people are crazy if they don't think the Beatles were the greatest band ever!

You think about them morning, noon and night

You say the Beatles wrote a song about this... to people when they mention a song by another artist-and then can quote the Beatle song's entire lyrics

You dislike Dick Clark because George Harrison didn't like him and made negative comments about him [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

Your family members just roll their eyes when you mention The Beatles yet again!

-when the only thing you ever get into an argument with someone when they(wrongfully) declare that the beatles are not the best band that ever lived!!
-when people come up to you and tell you everytime they hear the beatles mentioned in a movie or tv show [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

<font size="2" face="Tahoma, Arial, sans-serif">And on a similar note...

Giving your friend/family member a dirty look if they change the channel as a Beatle song comes on the radio because THEY SHOULD KNOW BETTER BY NOW and should know each and every Beatle song as well as you do! [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

If they're words that only a true fan would know like "cavern" or something like that, it's ok. Besides, people are usually allowed so many tries before they're locked out. I think it's obvious NOT to pick something easy like say, "beatles".

...when you walk around carrying a pair of drumsticks in your hand everywhere you go, even though you play bass...

...when you spend $35 on a DVD of the entire second season of the Simpsons, all for the five glorious minutes' worth of Marge painting a picture of Ringo and hearing "It Don't Come Easy" in the background as she paints away...

...when you ask the librarian to check and see if any of your bukes are overdue...

...when you refuse to wear high heels, not because of feminist leanings, backaches or bunions; but because you're so proud of being exactly 5'8" just like Ringo that you can't possibly be seen walking around looking any other height...

Okay; lemme stop. You're scared; aren't you? Aw; c'mon...come back...I'm just really into the Beatles; that's all. Don't give me that luke...er, look! Look! I said look! I'm really okay... [img]graemlins/cyclops.gif[/img] * [img]graemlins/cyclops.gif[/img] * [img]graemlins/cyclops.gif[/img]

You run a Beatles forum on another site (I do)
You know all the poems in John's book by heart and recited them to your kids at bedtime
My son, JOHN PAUL, loved THE MOLDY MOLDY MAN.
You and your son run lines from AHDN and HELP, etc, in public
You tell your husband you spent the night with him for the first time because you noticed when he was kissing you that he smells exactly like John.
You still remember exactly what John smelled like.
You not only have hundreds of Beatles trading cards, but you take them out and look at them...OFTEN.
You write Beatles fanfics...
I could go on, but a lot of the things I do are already mentioned.

Well I do just about all of these, so I guess I'm obsessed! (Officially) The other day in the mall, I was in a store with my mum and I said something was "oogly" instead of ugly completely by accident! I heard myself and grinned!

Fall of '65...yeah, Rubber Soul came out. My brother brought it home on an overcast day...

Spring of '68---uh-huh, I remember back around then because Lady Madonna was released. There was a great review of it in TIME Magazine.....

Fall of '68...I was on my way to the dermatologist and first heard Revolution/Hey Jude back-to-back....

It's pathetic, but I THINK chronologically in terms of Beatles releases..... [img]graemlins/dazed.gif[/img]

You're obsessed when you find Beatle features on people you know - my fiancee's got Harrison eyes, a friend has a Ringo-ish nose...and so on...

- All of your stuffs are filled with Beatle things
(computer, room, bag, keychain, calendar)
- You search your library for Beatle articles, stories( I just did that!)
- You dream of the Beatles
- You hate the people who hurt the Beatles
- When you pass a movie review, it is a Beatle Movie
- When you heard a news about someone who was shot, you think of John Lennon directly, you heard someone died from cancer, you think about Linda or George
- You request at the DJ on the Radio Beatle Songs
- You love being in this forum
- You play Beatle songs at guitar and piano even if you aren't interested of music
- If your teacher says you put new lyrics on a certain song, you put it on a beatle song

3. Your daughters are named Linda, Patti, etc.
4. You refer to your hammer as "Maxwell's Silver Hammer"
5. You have a Beatles cut
6. You married someone named John Paul etc. Or Linda, Patti etc.

You get a Beatle Trivia card game "just because it was there" just so you can brush up on your knowledge

You do the "Your Mother Should Know" walk whenever you come to a set of stairs

"Grotty" slips out whenever you see or hear something grotesque [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

* Your car is named "Sexy Sadie"
* When you're driving and people look at you like you're crazy because you're always rockin' out to Beatle songs: singing along, clapping, pounding the steering wheel, doing the Ringo head toss, etc... [img]graemlins/rocknroll2.gif[/img]
*When your primary e-mail account is with beatlemail
*When you sign cards & letters with Beatlisms like: "All you need is love," "The word is love," or "All my lovin'" rather than the traditional "Sincerely" or simply "Love"
*When you hear it's someones birthday you automatically think "You say it's your birthday..." instead of "Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you..."
*When you use a personalized writing pen that says "Paul" on it
*When you use a public or school computer and you put up Beatle wallpaper just so you can "spread the joy"
*When you'll happily drive three+ hours (each way) to go to a Fab Four (a Beatles tribute band) concert so that you can get your much needed "Beatle fix"
*When you see red, white and blue items you associate it with the Union Jack rather than Old Glory
