What To Do with Faux Beatles Fans

You know the type. Many were introduced to Beatles’ music by the film Across the Universe. There’s nothing wrong with that, by itself, but, when paired with the presentation of oneself as the biggest Beatles’ fan ever, the equation changes — to one that calls for action.

The action to take? Challenge them to a trivia game.

My favorite such game is “name that tune.” It’s even fun to provide hints, especially if others who know The Beatles are present. The best one yet was challenging someone to name “this song by the Beatle named Mick Jagger,” and then playing “Sympathy for the Devil.”

If you’re in the mood to hear it right now, here you go:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pkXIYgsvO0c

As it turned out, this person hadn’t yet heard the Beatles album which contains this Rolling Stones song.
