[A song from 1963]
Released on 11 January 1963, this was the second Beatles single in the UK and the first in the US. It did so well in the UK that Parlophone rush-released the album of the same name on 22 March 1963, primarily to capitalise on its success. It didn’t do so well stateside but, on its re-release in January 1964 with ‘From me to you’ on the B-side, leapt to No.3 in the Billboard 100.
