UPON FINISHING THE EIGHT BEATLES 🐞 ANTHOLOGY EPISODES

Here are my random, uneducated thoughts
  1. β€’
    Stewart was hot
  2. β€’
    Astrid was hot
  3. β€’
    George never looked good in the mop top haircut
  4. β€’
    RIP Pan Am
  5. β€’
    British police hats are funny looking
  6. β€’
    George didn't look good in a mustache either
  7. β€’
    No one will ever have fame like The Beatles had fame
    When was the last time there were 25,000 people waiting for a musician at the airport as they arrived back home? Airport security wouldn't even allow it, would they?
  8. β€’
    Siri thinks "Beatles" is misspelled. The fuck, Siri?!
  9. β€’
    I didn't know how important Hamburg was to their careers
  10. β€’
    It is astonishing how quickly and utterly Beatlemania swept the world
  11. β€’
    It's sad that when you Google Image Search "george martin" all you get is photos of the fucking Game of Thrones guy
  12. β€’
    Brian Epstein was a snappy dresser
  13. β€’
    Paul is not actually dead
    I'm pretty sure
  14. β€’
    Ringo played fast and always looks funny up on those little pedestals with his drum kit. Like he is always about to fall off and the high hat is about to tip over.
  15. β€’
    When I see scenes like this, I miss John terribly
  16. β€’
    All the smoking! In cars with closed windows! When there are children sitting in their laps!
  17. β€’
    Man, Ed Sullivan was a weird lookin' dude
  18. β€’
    What did they wished they'd gotten instead of MBEs?
  19. β€’
    All the screaming girls
  20. β€’
    I want Ringo to be my friend
  21. β€’
    John was excited by LSD. Paul was petrified.
  22. β€’
    How important radio used to be
  23. β€’
    I can't believe they did the original cover of Yesterday and Today with the meat and chopped up dolls. WTF
  24. β€’
    Japanese live audiences were very well-behaved
  25. β€’
    Beatles's marketing never overtly sexualized them. They literally often have their shirts buttoned right to the top.
  26. β€’
    Wow it sucked in the Philippines.
  27. β€’
    Man, they toured for a long fucking time.
  28. β€’
    The footage of dimwits in the US South burning Beatles albums makes me mad
  29. β€’
    Why did they all grow facial hair at the same time?
  30. β€’
    Didn't know about how Sgt. Pepper's was sort of a tour without a tour.
  31. β€’
    Watching George Martin listen to old takes/tracks and get all shiver-down-your-spine-y is sublime.
  32. β€’
    The "Day in the Life" music video makes me scared.
  33. β€’
    George didn't like Sgt. Pepper's? His "heart was still in India."
  34. β€’
    They considered buying their own Greek island and disappearing/retiring/escaping there
  35. β€’
    For years, they toured and played almost every day and they played poorly because they literally could not hear themselves playing or singing
  36. β€’
    The live TV broadcast of "All you need is love" is amazing
    And so free love 60s-looking.
  37. β€’
    I wish we had that "loving feeling" now in 2015. Alas.
  38. β€’
    Brian Epstein died at 32!
  39. β€’
    None of the music videos/films like Magical Mystery Tour stand the test of time to me. They are all super cheesy.
  40. β€’
    Paul comes across as sort of a Type A control freak. But on the hand, as the post touring Beatles era started and they all started to be individuals/have very different musical tastes, probably Paul was the glue that held them together.
  41. β€’
    What must have been going through John's head during this dance number
  42. β€’
    I now know what "boobed" means
  43. β€’
    I wish there still WERE telegrams Stop I really do STOP
  44. β€’
    I would like to have visited the Beatles Apple Boutique.
  45. β€’
    There was almost nothing about the women in their lives 😒
  46. β€’
    They made much of The White Album in separate studios, working on their own songs. Sad.
  47. β€’
    Horses for courses. β€”George Martin on The White Album
  48. β€’
    I teared up when Paul talked about how he thinks of John whenever he sings a certain line of "Hey, Jude" that John liked.
  49. β€’
    If I ever get a time machine, I'm going to go back and see their rooftop concert. I will find my way onto that rooftop. I will.
  50. β€’
    What kind of records would they have made if they'd have hung on through the 70s?
  51. β€’
    As a last ditch effort, Paul suggested they "go back to little gigs" and "find our basic roots, and then who knows what will happen?" I wish they could have. Imagine a bunch of early 70s "Beatles Unplugged"-kinda recordings!
  52. β€’
    And last in this list, too, John. 🐞
