On this day the Beatles held the top 5 spots on the music charts. Something that has never been acheived by any other group.

Another accomplishment is they had 19 songs in the top 100 at this time

1. Canít Buy Me Love
2. Twist and Shout
3. She Loves You
4. I Want to Hold Your Hand
5. Please Please Me

I think my feelings on the subject are pretty well documented

The 1st rock and roll I ever heard...as a little itty bitty fella...was the single 45's of "I Wanna Hold Your Hand" and "She Loves You".

(our teenage neighbor girl snuck them over to my sister and I!)

Rock and Roll sure has changed since then, hasnt it?

For the better...extended improvised jamming, fusion with jazz, blues, country, etc...

For the worse...punk, grunge, thug rap, hip hop, goonish death metal, etc...

"D"

D, you sound a lot like me (which might not be as bad a thing as you might think ):

I remember basically two things that I can definitely date to spring 1963:
* the BeaTles
* my first pair of glasses

Actually, I didn't like either at first, but I later realized they were for my own good.

I remember walking down Crosby Street after school dissing the BeaTles to somebody: "They're so stupid--the only words in their song are "Yeah, yeah, yeah!' " I don't know whether I'd actually heard the song; I think I picked up this misinformation and bad attitude from another boy earlier that day, or maybe moments before. I was vaguely aware that there was some excitement about the lads among the girls in school that day. I don't know--maybe it was a few weeks earlier than April, like after the BeaTles' Ed Sullivan Show appearance (Feb. 9).

Back on my street--might have been the same afternoon, as BeaTlemania swept Rockford--there was Ann Morgan, one year older than me, walking on the sidewalk across the street from my house with a couple of her friends. They were all crazy about the BeaTles and not really trying to persuade me, but they couldn't stop oohing and ahhing over them. Puppy love was definitely a factor, making it all even weirder, and I immediately started resisting this whole BeaTle thing harder.

I think it was summer 1965 that I finally got interested in the BeaTles. On vacation I heard "Help!" on the car radio and was surprised to actually like it.

That school year, then, I saw the BeaTles on TV from their Shea Stadium concert (anybody catch it that night, too?) and was hooked. I was disturbed to see Paul or Ringo smoking cigarettes in the dressing room before they came out onto the field, but otherwise, it was pretty fun, and the music was cool. (I still thought the mania part was pretty weird, though--all these girls going totally mental. )

User Comment at above page written on November 20 and mentions King Curtis as a warmup band at Shea.
Seems to have been first aired in early 1966; great Shea concert page:
http://www.maccafan.net/Gallery/SheaStadium/Shea.htm

The next day in our classroom before school started, we were all chatting about the Shea concert we all saw the night before. It was wild because nobody had said the day before, "There's a BeaTles concert on TV tonight--let's all watch it!" or anything. As far as I knew, nobody (at least no boys) liked the BeaTles at all. Here the morning after the concert, we're all raving about what a great concert it was and how neat the BeaTles were. We were all surprised, I think, that we all came out of our BeaTles closet all of a sudden like that.

When we all took our seats to officially start the day, Mrs. Campbell, who had no doubt picked up on our BeaTles enthusiasm, made some derogatory comment about them. Our whole class sat there in stunned silence--and, you could tell, total disagreement.

Anyway, back to '64, you have to admit, those are all great songs!
1. Canít Buy Me Love
2. Twist and Shout
3. She Loves You
4. I Want to Hold Your Hand
5. Please Please Me
(Thanks, cupofjo!)
They all sound dated, you have to admit (unlike some later BeaTles tracks), but they're all top-notch and really can't be beat for Top 40. Let's compare them to five of the big songs listed in the weekly entertainment paper I picked up today:

Billboard Hot 100: "Don't Matter," Akon (great: on the Konvict label)
Hot Adult Contemporary: "Waiting on the World to Change," John Mayer
Mainstream Rock Tracks: "Breath," Breaking Benjamin
Hot Country Songs: "Beer in Mexico," Kenny Chesney
Hot Rap Tracks: "This Is Why I'm Hot," Mims

Bring back the BeaTles!

cupofjo, this happened to be in my daily email from The Onion today. Some of it's pretty funny.

This was the beginning for me. My first 45's that didn't have a Disney theme - they lead to the hard stuff...albums. There was no turning back...I was hooked.
