Beatles Inspired Birthday Story

Now time for something different...

My friend Jack is a huge Beatles fan. So for his birthday I wrote him a story using only (or almost only) Beatles song titles or Beatles lyrics. Just a few things to know to better understand the story:

Jack was a Theatre major in college, so of course he now works at a tin foil factory. He has a long drive to work, and he is in love (obsessed) with Scarlett Johansson.

I hope it inspires you to write a story for the Beatle fan in your life or let it inspire you to some form of creativity. I love getting gifts like this and giving them too.

Here's the story:

Beatles Inspired Birthday Story

It was Another Day In The Life of Jack. Working Eight Days A Week, Driving The Long and Winding Road, Across The Universe, to the tin foil factory. You'd think he was living Back In The USSR.

So don't Ask Me Why, after A Hard Day's Night, this Nowhere Man, decided All Things Must Pass, and Like Dreamers Do, and With A Little Help From His Friends (Here, There and Everywhere) he bought A Ticket To Ride.

And feeling Free As a Bird this former member of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Heart's Club Band left Yesterday behind him and declared:

"I've Got To Get Scarlett Johansson Into My Life!"

And believe it or not, it didn't take a Long, Long, Long time before She Came In Through The Bathroom Window.

"Hello!" Jack said. "Goodbye!" Scarlett said.

"Honey Don't," Jack said. "Don't you know - I Want To Be Your Man. I Want To Hold Your Hand. You Really Got A Hold On Me.... Love, Love Me Do."

"But Jack," Scarlett said. "When I'm 64, you'll be 90!"

"But Scarlett: We Can Work It Out. And Tomorrow Never Knows. And Hey, We Don't Have To Hide Our Love Away."

"Well" Scarlett thought. "There is Something In The Way You Move."

"I Am The Walrus," Jack said.

So in The End, She Said, She Said... She Loves You,
And All You Really Need Is Love.

So Hey Jack,
Don't Ever Change
Because you're like Nobody I Know,
And That Means A Lot.
And since You Say It's Your Birthday,
With All My Loving,
I Say Happy Birthday To You!
