This day in music - January 25, 1964: The Beatles score their first #1 U.S. single with "I Want To Hold Your Hand"

A nice clip of the lads playing "I Want to Hold Your Hand," with an intro by their producer, George Martin. What more needs to be said? (I think you have to click through to the YouTube site to get it, but that doesn't appear to be too difficult.)

  • Some people believe our lives are profoundly influenced by whatever pop song was #1 on the day we were born.

    My number #1's are:
    'You're So Vain' by Carly Simon in the US
    'Long Haired Lover From Liverpool' by Little Jimmy Osmond in the UK
    'Ben' by Michael Jackson in Australia

    See which songs you get
