Default You know you're obsessed with the Beatles when...

i read a thread like this on some Beatles forum once, and some of the answers were hilarious! It's nice to know I'm not the only person who has weird behavior relating to the Beatles. Here's my answers:
--you're late to school because there's a Beatles song on the radio, and you have to hear the whole thing before you go inside.
--you usually end up buying something Beatles-related when you go shopping, even if you're almost broke
--when in your history class, someone says that lennon died of syphilis (sp?), and you get extremely mad and are about to firmly correct his poor, lost soul when you realize that he was, in fact, talking about lenin, not lennon, and that you were the only person in the class who immediately thought john and not vladimir
--you get depressed whenever you finish reading a book about the Beatles because it ends with the 4 of them fighting with each other, and you think of things they could have said or done to prevent the breakup, or at least make it more pleasant

You're a heterosexual guy, and you often go on the John Lennon Artificial Intelligence Progran and try and get John to make out with you.

You can't go a day without hearing the Beatles, seeing the Beatles, reading about the Beatles or thinking about the Beatles

Your bedroom walls are completely covered in their pictures.

This is easy! (Here's what I put on quizilla)
1. You're eating dinner somewhere in a loud restaurant and you faintly hear a Beatles tune off in the distance. You rudely interrupt any conversation going on to announce to everyone that a Beatles song is being played. Everybody says, "how can you hear that?" Then you explain how you have this sixth Beatles sense....
2.You find yourself attempting to subtly work them into conversations, school assignments, debates, letters.......... (I do!!!! Ask my friends)
3. You dream about being the fifth (and only girl) Beatle... playing the guitar, singing lead, in front of a crowd who adores you. Watching John and Paul perform their magic... it was an amazing dream...
4.You're sitting in a classroom and when the teacher is trying to teach a subject, they mention a word that makes you think of a Beatles' song and you start singing the song.
5.You're parking your car when a Beatles song comes on the radio and you refuse to get out until the song is over.
6.Their songs play through your head on command!
7.You wake up with a different Beatles song playing in your head almost every morning.
8.You sing A Day in the Life and say "...I sawr a film today, oh boy..." (Check!)
9.You can count on them to cheer you up everytime you're depressed
10. When you read this thread!!!!
11.You play all the LP's backwards to find the hidden meanings.
12. You can't get to sleep because you're singing Beatles songs so loud in your head that your brain hurts.
13.You know you're a Beatles fan when you find yourself attracted to a guy because he has Paul's eyes, or John's nose (Wait... this should be number 1!! or number nine! *wink wink* lol)
14. Your friends are ready to kill you because you talk too much about the Beatles and how much they rock and how much that I should shut up now.....
15.Your cruisin' throught the channels on TV and you stop at the sound 'Of can't buy me love', yet you can't find the channnel it was on and you begin to flip out! (You have some issues to work out there...)
16. When you stop completely unrelated strangers in the street, because, in a moment of fan-driven madness, you believe that it's Paul.
17.The dorkiest kid in your school sings Yellow Submarine at the school talent show, and even though it was really bad and they didn't sing loud enough and messed up the lyrics, you are the one who stands up and cheers the loudest at the end.
18.When you step on a insect (beetle) , you scream: "Oh no! I killed George!" (no!!!!!!!!!!!!)
19.When someone mentions The Beatles in school, everyone stares at you. (That's happened to me before!)
20.You know you're a Beatles fan when any Paul other than McCartney has to have an explanation ("Paul, my boyfriend", "Paul, my hairstylist") because everyone assumes if you just say "Paul", it means Mr. McC!
21.when you wake to "Good Morning" get ready to go to " Here comes the sun" and "Good day sunshine" leave the house humming " She's leaving home" or He's leaving home. Come home singing " A Hard days night" and go to bed listening to "Goodnight"
22.Your ringtone is a beatles tune and when you have an incoming call you don't answer it cause you want to listen to the song.
23.You change Lucy, Rita, Michelle, Jude, Pam, Anna, Girl, and any other names in Beatles songs to YOUR name.
24.You have a list of rules for all carpooling friends the first rule sounds someting like '1. Thou shalt not insult the Beatles or their music in my car. If you do it is considered high treason and will be punished by a discharge from the car on a busy street while the car is moving at a minimum of 20 mph.'
25. You know you're a Beatles fan when even if you don't have a British accent you get one when singing Beatles songs. (hey! Stop spying on me!!)
26. When you torture your friends by writing "Sont des mots qui vont tres bien ensemble"or "Jai Guru Deva Om" and not telling them what that means
27. Come up with secret nicknames for the Beatles and refer to them using these names (and make sure they think that this guy is cute and hot to them. Then tell them who the guy REALLY is)
28. You read the Beatles biography by Bob Spitz
29. You talk to another Beatles fan on the phone for hours just talking about how hot the Beatles were
Yeah....I'm lame. I couldn't come up with another one

This thread bears a strong resemblance to "You Know You're a Beatles' Fan When..." something like that.

I second!

This happens to me all the time! Or, if I'm reading something and a word comes up, I'll have a sinpet of the song where the word comes up in my head play and go back on reading normally.

Same with Bob Dylan songs.

30. Perfecting your english at the same time you discover the Beatles, you UN-INTENTIONALLY wind up with a slight Liverpudlian inflection from having seen too many of their interwiews and movies.

No... really... it comes and goes... I'd be talking to someone and after a few minutes I realise ''Wait, I'm sounding like John (or another fab)...

I've even had the odd person or two ask me if I'm from England !

It happens to me in shops alot! Its sad when I am with friends and do it!

Same! My latest film studies project was on the song Rocky Raccoon and I drew the entire story of it, I need to scan that! but i am not the only one then! ;)

18.When you step on a insect (beetle) , you scream: "Oh no! I killed George!" (no!!!!!!!!!!!!)
when I went to france, there was a beetle in the garden there (well swimming pool in the villa ;)) and I named it Beatie (double meaning for the beatles and a saints football player at the time)!



Quote:

yep, I have a seperate beatles one for messages and phone calls! for no one for messages and I know the second it cuts out! and norwegian wood for the other!

Lucky for me, I already have the luck of being british and can sing it just like them of course!

Quote:
26. When you torture your friends by writing "Sont des mots qui vont tres bien ensemble"or "Jai Guru Deva Om" and not telling them what that means
I have done that! i didn't write it!! But I said "Sont des mots qui vont tres bien ensemble" out loud and it sounded good! they wanted to know what it was! Also wrote "can you take me back where I came from, can you take me back" in a lesson and he wondered what it meant! ;)
also millions of others! I even said !baby can you drive my car" today, as an idea for a car magazine cover for someone!
and me and my friend our known as the Nerk twins now! o yes thats right! ;)

some more...
when you get annoyed at someone for saying "LSD" stands for Lucy sky diamonds!
when you pause the TV on Malcome in the middle when the mum says "If i were john lennon's mother, he would still be alive"! and then start th argue with the fictional characters on a paused screen about how untrue that would be!
