The Beatles - Please Please Me

From the opening chords and vocal howl on "I Saw Her Standing There" it's easy to see why so many people went crazy for The Beatles in the 60's. Nobody could match their sound, and nobody could match their energy. They hit the scene as young idealistic mop tops with some of the best songs of their generation. Who wouldn't instantly fall in love with these guys?

When I was a kid, I heard "Love Me Do" and "Please Please Me" on oldies radio, and I actually hated them. Luckily my tastes have changed over time. I have learned to enjoy The Beatles from their humble beginnings to their turbulent ending. Great underrated track: "Misery."

Baleeted? No. Because Beatles.
