  1. There are two songs on this list that irritated me then and now…Afternoon Delight and Moonlight Feels Right…I can’t change the station fast enough when they come on. The two songs are always linked together to me…I see why now…they were hitting around the same time.

    Got To Get You Into My Life was the first Beatle single I ever bought when they were actually on the charts. I had the Rock and Roll album but I guess I wanted the set.

    • Yep… wasn’t that the worst cover ever- the Rock and Roll one… they should have gone the whole way and had The Fonz on the cover with them…. I think I gave Moonlight Feels Right a sympathy vote- I didn’t care for it either.

    • Oh that was…lol yea if Capital would have had the rights to his image they probably would have…just awful.
      I know people who love it…it just hit me wrong for some reason.

    • Hey Jude Again was mine but this one followed quickly…I think it was the second one I owned. I had access to Meet The Beatles first but it wasn’t mine.
      The Red and Blue are great. Great introduction to the Beatles…still.

    • I think you are right- if someone came up to me and said they weren’t familiar with The Beatles what would be a good introduction- Red and Blue..perfect.
