Hans Hot 100 Beatles Songs: #84: ‘From Me To You’
#84: ‘From Me To You’ an early Lennon-McCartney written song released as a single- was a #1 hit in the UK in 1963- but its original release made no impact in the United States- when it was re-released during Beatlemania- it got lost in the shuffle of a flood of hits and only reached #41 on the Billboard Hot 100. John and Paul wrote the song while on a coach heading to Shrewsbury as part of a tour with Helen Shapiro. They were inspired by the New Music Express letters section for the title ‘From You To Us.’
Del Shannon also did a version of this. I believe, and could be wrong, he was the first to record a Lennon/McCartney song.
I never realized how brief this song is.
