It's Been a Hard Day's Night

I just watched the Beatles’ A Hard Day’s Night for the first time. What fun! They are so cute and young, and the movie is full of energy. The movie assumes you know who the Beatles are, but even if you don’t, I think you would enjoy it.

I asked A if he had heard of the Beatles.

He said, “Of course! Everyone’s heard of them!”

I asked him if he knew any of their songs. He thought for a moment. “My Girl.”

“Um, no, that’s the Temptations.”

“Temptations, Beatles, same difference.”

The arrogance of the young!
