– You freak out when the category on final Jeopardy is “The Beatles,” inform your family that you have waited your entire life for this, and promptly get the question right as soon as it displays on the screen. Oh yeah.
– When you click on a Beatles video on Youtube, you automatically click “like” before you even watch it.
– You constantly try to figure out the Beatley configurations of various four-person ensembles. I sort of stole this from a blog post I read, but among the Big Bang Theory cast members, I’ve decided that Sheldon is John, Leonard is Paul, Raj is George, and Howard is Ringo. See what I mean?
– You compare every concert you go to with the Paul McCartney concert you were fortunate enough to attend. But none of them, not even Elton John, can top the mighty Macca.
– You’ve joined multiple Beatle-related groups on Facebook.
– You know the exact spot in Let it Be where Paul hits a wrong note on the piano. I’m surprised they left it on the album, but it was the Let it Be album. The Beatles didn’t even care enough to oversee the production… Enter Phil Spector, and the rest is infamously history.
– You always write about the Beatles in your SAT essays because they apply to so many different themes of life. Creativity? Check. Hard work? Check. Determination? Check. They’re basically the “To Kill a Mockingbird” of the music industry.
– You sometimes start subconsciously singing Beatles songs while walking down the street without even realizing it.
– Your respect for a musician or a famous person automatically skyrockets if you find out that they like the Beatles.
– You shrieked with delight when Paul won yet ANOTHER Grammy, which seemingly happens every year these days. He’s still a force to be reckoned with!
– If you’re about to leave the room and a Beatles song comes on the radio, you make up an excuse in your head about why you can’t leave the room just yet and stall for the length of the song.
– Whenever you’re running down the street, you feel like a Beatle in opening scene of A Hard Day’s Night when they’re running away from screaming fans.
– Whenever you watch that scene from Ferris Bueller with Twist and Shout, you sing along.
– Many of your friends mention the Beatles when they write messages in your yearbook.
– You frequently listen to the Anthology 2 version of And Your Bird Can Sing just for a good laugh. Hear it here:
I can never listen to this without cracking up at least once. 🙂
– You’ve decided that if you ever got a Twitter, the first person you’d follow would be Paul McCartney/The interns at paulmccartney.com. Let’s face it, he’s definitely not writing his own tweets, but it’s still worth a follow.
Yes, I know it’s Paul’s birthday, but I started this a couple of days ago and wanted to finish it. A birthday post will be on the way very soon!
