My Beatles Story:
OK, I admit it- I used to hate the Beatles. Yes, throw your stones, I bow my head in shame--I used to HATE the Beatles. I was 4 years old ok! I thought that they were a bunch of rich jerks who thought they were "soo great" and I just had to be the moody Preschooler I was and HATE them. Luckily, however, I saw the light when the Beatles 1 CD came out and my mom thought my dad would like it for Christmas. He's not a huge Beatles fan but I got it for him anyway. Turns out I ended up listening to it more than he did. Ok maybe he never saw that CD since under the tree, but whatever. Please remember, I LOVE THE BEATLES, MORE THAN YOU CAN IMAGINE!!! (ok well the diehards know what i'm talking about...) Keep listening to 'em! :)

My Beatles Story:
My mom was born just a couple months after the Beatles first appeared on the Ed Sullivan Show. Living in India, she couldn't really able to hear the Beatles as often as she liked, but got lots of tapes and records whenever her father or friends traveled. She was immediately hooked, though later had no way of listening to them. When '1' came out, she was absolutely thrilled and went to buy it the day it came out. Before hand, I'd hear her sing 'I Wanna Hold Your Hand', 'Help' and all the other well-known songs Beatles songs and thought they were pretty awesome songs. I heard '1' and was. .well, the Beatles have been my favorite band ever since. Then one by one, I got to hear other terrific though not so well known songs like 'Strawberry Fields Forever', 'Think For Yourself' and others and realized how truly talented they were/are. I even got a couple of my friends hooked, and surpassed my mom as the Beatles-junkie of the family :) The Beatles really do deserv!
e all the hype and attention they get.. JPGR, always.

My Beatles Story:
I always kind of new a who the Beatles were, since my parents both love them (my mother had a huge crush on George when she was a teenager).  But since last year I started hanging around with family friends who LOVE the Beatles, I got to know the songs better, and I thought they were OK.  Then a few summers ago my dad gave my some tapes he recorded of a Beatles Marathon on the radio in the 80's, and I listened to all 6 tapes over and over again and I became OBSESED.  Now they are my favorite group, hands down, no competition, no group comes CLOSE to being as great.

My Beatles Story: 
  Well my friend is in LOVE with the Beatles as I am now. I've known her probably about 2 years now. I've always heard her talk about them in amazement. I did like them but not as much as I do now.  My History teacher is also in love with the Beatles. I would listen to her talk about them after class. Then I became more interested. I've always known who they are.....and I knew how awesome they were!!! But as I grew more attached to my friend......they more I myself became a fan.  I was always I guess you can call it 'Ol-school' Cuz as a teenager and growing up I always listen to the oldies.  I never liked any of the new music. I was very attached to the 50's & 60's. I even dress like I'm in the 50's. I'm totally different from the rest of the kids at school.
And one day I came to school with a Beatles t-shirt on and the kids looked at me as if I was crazy because I like the Beatles. I found this to be quite funny.  I'm totally 50's & 60's. That's wut ALL the people at my school think and say. I feel proud that I can express that.
Only one of my friends is into the same stuff that I am into.
But, if it wasn't for her.....I don't think I would be as big as a Beatles fan that I am now!!! I thank her every day for that!!!
I LOVE GEORGE!!!!! lol

What is your favorite Beatles song?: In My Life& anything by George
My Beatles Story:
Well, you know, growing up I had heard about The Beatles and how great they were. I loved listening to Ticket to Ride and Eight Days a Week whenever it came up on the radio...but other than that, I had no interest in them.
 Then about two years ago I heard In My Life on the radio and practically died and went to Heaven. What was this? It was so beautiful! So I researched The Beatles, and quickly became a huge fan. I read biographies, have almost all their records, own two t shirts, and Beatles pins. But no matter how much merchandise and memorobilia you have of The Beatles, a real fan is, in my opinion, someone who feels a connection with them. John, Paul, George and Ringo are my boys! :-) They're awesome!
   Yeah, sometimes people make fun of my listening to The Beatles, but who cares?? If people do this to you, just ignore it because, seriously, you're more well off with The Beatles than this rap junk that pollutes the radios.
  Long live the Fab Four!!!

My Beatles Story:
My mom was a huge fan all her life and i have always been surrounded with their music. I grew up with them constantly in my ear. Not until I was about 10 did i start actually listening to what their songs were saying. I got really interested and tried to start analyzing their lyrics. It's become one of my favorite hobbies. So now my mom and I have something to agree on. We've spent hours talking about them along with listening to their music. So I can say my mom and I are 100% Beatle People

My Beatles Story:
I started listening to The Beatles when I was 12, and
I've loved them ever since. I own Please Please Me, With The Beatles,
Magical Mystery Tour, Revolver, Rubber Soul, Abbey Road, Let It Be, Help!,
Imagine, Lennon Legend, Tug of War, and most recently I purchased The
Beatles Anthology. I would recommend it to anybody, especially if they like
The Beatles. It is simply superb. The Beatles are the best band ever, and
about 99% of their songs are awesome (minus Dig It which sucked lol) I cant
wait until Let It Be: Naked is released on Nov. 17-18 03!!!!!

My Beatles Story:
  When people used to ask me who is your favorite band? I would answer The Beatles.. they would start laughing and start making stupid jokes like" there dead" or "there all ugly" things like that. But now-a-days when I tell them I listen to The Beatles they say "yeah there pretty dope" or"they rock":-D
    So yeah I listen to alot of oldies mostly 50s&60s.. those were the best times I personally think. The first song I heard of the Beatles was: I want to hold your hand. People think are obsessed with them because there all over my folder, and I have lyrics from every single song they sang. I think I know a (decent) amount of beatles thing, and I have read Paul's biography. He is my favorite!

My Beatles Story:
The first Beatle's song I heard was on K-Earth 101 when I was 10, and the song was, "I Saw her Standing There". The minute I heard that song, I fell in love with The Beatles! I've always loved 60's music and oldies, but The Beatles just swept me off my feet!
I especially loved Paul. He was so adorable!!! The Beatles harmonize together very well. They're so groovy!
Now I own The Beatles 1 cd, The White Album, Abbey Road, and Rubber Soul. All of the Beatles' songs are great. Not a single song is a bad one!
I'm such a Beatlefreak, I drive my friends and family crazy! LOL, but why not? The Beatles were the greatest!

Hehe, BEATLES FOR LIFE!!! ^.^

My Beatles Story:
I Know this is long but... It all started about 3 months ago when I was listening to my dad's cd player (it holds many cds and my dad likes the beatles too) and the cd came on of Paul McCartney (I didn't know a thing about The Beatles and I had no idea who Paul McCartney was) so I asked my dad and he said Paul McCartney is a very good singer (I actually didn't listen to it I just paused and I asked my dad).  I asked if he was ever in a band. And he said yes and I asked what is the name of the band and he said the beatles I have them up there too.  So I turned the cd to the beatles and it was rubber soul and I told my dad that they were really good.  Ever since I have been obsessed.  I've been downloading all the beatles music on the computer.  I've got up to 100 songs by now!  I've saw two Beatles movies:  "Yellow Submarine" and "Help!". I really want to see "A Hard Day's Night"!!!  I own Anthology 2,  Beatles 1,  and The Beatles 1962-1967. I've been downloading Paul songs too! Well, My friend Olivia one day she likes The Beatles and the next day she doesn't. It's funny.

My Beatles Story:
My Beatles Story...hmm...where do I begin? I guess I'll start last year. My best friend in the hole world, Sarah, was the biggest Beatle fan out there! She talked about them, every time I went over her house, pictures LINED, literally, FILLED up all of her walls, she had every CD, ever Album, she'd teach me about them, make me watch the movies. I first watched Help! At her birthday sleep/over, and immediately got hooked, well, sort of. My favorite was, and still is, George, although I just LOVE them all. Ever since then, she changed my life. Now I am as obsessed as her, pictures decorating my walls, cd's, albums, THAT'S ALL I EVER TALK ABOUT NOW! It helps too, because my parents were Beatle fans, and my family members really dig them. I've never hated them at all. I knew their songs. Before liking the Beatles, I was into The Monkees. I still love The Monkees though. The Beatles are the best band in my opinion. I HAVE BECOME OBSESSED!!!!!!! My collection is huge, and is growing bigger and bigger by the day. I have 3 different Beatle websites and I belong to a hole bunch of Beatle Organizations, including Beatlegeeks.com and Beatlegirl.com. They are so COOL!!!! I love them so much, they are what I live for! I'll never EVER stop liking them, THEY RULE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! All thanks to Sarah, and the movie Help! NOW MY LIFE IS COMPLETELY DEVOTED TO MY HUGE BEATLES OBSESSION!!! -Robyn- ps) I LOVE GEORGE!!!

My Beatles Story:
When I was about four years old I heard Sesame Street doing "Letter B," and liked it so much that my dad bought me the Beatles' "Let it Be" album.  That got me started, and I got all thirteen albums, plus the 1962-66 and 1967-70 CDs, the Anthology albums and videos, and several bootleg albums.  I have also seen Paul McCartney twice in concert.  They are the greatest group ever, their music is phenomenal, and they have a unique appearance and style.

These days I mostly collect videos of the Beatles, but I've also taken time to buy some books and magazines, some original 45s and LPs, and a Beatles lunchbox.

My Beatles Story:
I first got into the Beatles when I discovered one of my friends liked them, and I've only been into them for about a year. My best friend burned "1" for me, and I slowly started listening to it more and more until finally it never left my CD player. I downloaded ALL of their songs, and now I'm working on a Beatles tribute website. They're my favorite band, one of the best in the world.

I never got into the Beatles before that (I like other 60s- and 70s-era rock, so it was odd that I hadn't) since my parents never liked them and none of my other friends really knew about them either. But I'm so glad I did- it's changed my life!

My Beatles Story:
I always knew who the Beatles were but I  started getting interested in them just in the last couple of months or so.

It all started in music class.  We were doing the Beatles unit and I really started to like their music. I did more research online and within a day I was hooked. Now I'm even getting the rest of my family to like them as much as I do.

My Beatles Story:
It all started a 17th of April 2002.  The thing is I don't know how I started to like them!!! It's weird, cause from one day to another I was totally in love of all the Beatles albums, songs and of course, them. I remember that the first song I ever heard was I want to hold your hand (the one I downloaded from internet).  The same night I looked for a Rita Lee Cd (a Brazilian singer that made covers of the Beatles).  The next day I bought N 1 and listened to it all day long.  Since that day, I became a true Beatle FAN!!!!!!!! The weirdest thing is that I never had paid attention to The Beatles before that day, and from one day to another I begun to be fascinated! As my sis says: "sometimes, you fall in love with a guy and you don't even know how, when or why; you just did." I guess that's what happened to me. It's the only thing that really lasted for long (I used to like bands for only 2 months). I believe they can be great friends for every mood, and of course, they will never disappoint me!!! It really doesn't matter how I started to like them, does it?

My Beatles Story:
I posted here a few years ago when I first discovered this site, and I just want to say that it's the greatest place.  I still love The
Beatles more than any other band and I know that I always will.  I love meeting people who are Beatles fans and talking about the greatest band ever!!! I also love other 60's and 70's rock such as The Kinks and today's Britpop groups such as Blur, Oasis, and Supergrass.  It has been great talking with the people who I have met so far on this site and I would love to
meet more, let's talk! I'm in the pen pals section and I have aim and msn instant messengers, which I am much more likely to use than actually writing emails.  I look forward to hearing from you:)

My Beatles Story:
I've always listened to Beatles brunch on the radio when I was little, and my dad had a bunch of Beatles records and CDs, but my new obsession has recently grown to an all-time high!  I heard on a local radio station that Paul was going on tour, and I asked my dad if we could go, but I didn't expect him to say yes.  Well, he did, and we went, nosebleed seats, in the WAY WAY back.  I was excited, but not all that much.  Then, I heard the guitar strum, and I saw him walk out on stage and I was completely mesmerized.  It was the most wonderful day of my entire life.  Someone that I had read books about, learned piano songs he composed, listened to their radio program, I was actually SEEING him in person.  I couldn't get over it.  A few months later, a friend told me he was going on tour again for a second leg.  I looked for tickets, but he wasn't coming around to my city.  Although I was disappointed, he was coming to a nearby state, which was only about two h!
ours away.  I begged and begged my dad to take me, and I even created a little report with seating charts and the tickets that were listed on ebay for Atlantic City and Cleveland.  I went home to check the prices and see if they went up, and sure enough, the highest bidder, was my dad.  I was so thrilled I was shrieking with joy!  He pulled me out of school the day of the concert, and we flew out to Cleveland and saw him that night.  We had floor seats this time, and it was absolutely amazing.  My two experiences were the best two nights of my life, and I'm so grateful I have parents who let me do this, because it truly makes me happy.  I love the Beatles.  I love their story, their history, and their songs.  Some of my friends make fun of me, they say my music is "British crap," well, its "British crap" that makes me the happiest I've ever been, so let them call it what they want.  One of my friends, shares my joy, and enjoys hearing my stories.  I love the Beatles.  I guess that's all I really needed to say.  (Sorry this was so long! I got kinda wrapped up in everything).
