Please Please Me

The Beatles defined the form of a rock group forevermore by having an excellent deal of the writing happening within the band. The Shirelles made an indelible impression on a young Ringo Starr’s version of ‘Boys’ The band would put their own signature spin on the tracks, but they’d also remain respectfully faithful to their original counterparts. In a way, this substitution is representative of an overarching musical shift. The Beatles broke the mold and therefore the standard was never the identical.

‘This Boy’

Lennon wrote song after being blown away by Smokey Robinson’s ‘I’ve Been Good To You’ and borrowed the doo-wop stylings and flush harmonies. Listen to the first take, on ‘Anthology’ for John and Paul's fit of giggling when they get the lyrics mixed up. The Beatles song is a short and snappy showcase of the quality of Lennon’s voice, his ragged words imploring an ex to take him back.

Hey Jude

Hey Jude was the first single released on the Beatles' new label, Apple Records. The song was written to comfort Lennon’s song, Julian, during his parents’ divorce. It was a number one hit in numerous countries all over the world, becoming the top-selling single in the UK, the US, Australia, and Canada. The run for nine weeks at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart is tied for the longest run in the U.S. since the song was released in 1968.

I Want To Hold Your Hand

This song was the first song the Beatles recorded using four-track technology in 1963. It was the group’s first US #1 hit, and became the best-selling single worldwide for the band. In the UK, this song almost shot to the #1 spot on the day of release - if it hadn’t been for the Beatles’ other song, ‘She Loves You’ The song was written by the Lennon-McCartney duo, this time in the basement of a house on Wimpole Street, London.

Let It Be

McCartney had the idea for the song after he had a dream about his mother, during a stressful period of recordings with the band. The song was written at a time when McCartney felt isolated as a band member, feeling like he was only one pushing to keep the band together. ‘Let It Be’ symbolizes the disintegration of one of the most influential bands of all time and the acceptance of the dissolution of the group. Of course there are religious overtones, but I also interpreted this as McCartney knowing the Beatles were on their way to splitting and telling himself to “let it be”...

While My Guitar Gently Weeps

George Harrison penned the song after returning from studying meditation in India. The band was disintegrating in front of the public’s eyes. Harrison wrote the song as a look into the disharmony within the band. The presence of Clapton on guitar prompted McCartney and Lennon to give the song the recognition it deserved. On September 5th, the band underwent 28 takes, with Harrison on acoustic guitar and guide vocals, Lennon on guitar, McCartney on piano, Starr on drums, and Clapt on lead guitar. Rolling Stone listed the song #136 on ‘The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time’...

‘I Saw Her Standing There’ – ‘Please Please Me’

'I Saw Her Standing There' is the first song in The Beatles' catalog eligible for this list. It was the opening to Please Please Me, which was effectively the first tune that a great many people were introduced to The Beatles with. In 1963, youth typically bought 45s because they were cheaper and the tracks they heard on the radio were the ones they heard. 'Please Please Me' was an album that you didn’t want individual singles of; you wanted the whole record. Each of the songs were ‘single’ material, and all 14 felt fresh, different, and exciting.

Strawberry Fields Forever

This song was written by John Lennon and once again credited to the Lennon-McCartney partnership. It represented the departure from the style of the previous singles and transcended into a psychedelic genre. The song was a nostalgic look at the band’s past in Liverpool, reminiscing on the summers of playing and exploring with his friends. With an LSD-infused lens cast over the song, it turned from a straightforward message into a hallucinogenic and trippy song, creating a psychedelic masterpiece.
