The Beatles: On this day in music history

January 29

Most music mavens know that The Beatles were a Brit band founded in 1960. They were perhaps the most critically and commercially successful acts in history. The line-up from 1962 on included: John Lennon (guitar, keys, and vocals), Paul McCartney (bass, keys, guitar and vocals), George Harrison (guitar, keys and vocals) and Ringo Starr (drums, percussion, piano and vocals).

On this day in music history, there were several noteworthy Beatles-related moments.  The events date from 1964 and 1969.


The Beatles circa 1964

On this day in 1964 The Beatles’ song “I Want To Hold Your Hand” tops the Billboard Pop Chart.  This was their first number one song in the US.

Also on this day in 1964 The Beatles were in a recording studio in France while there for a 19-day concert season.  A rep from EMI’s West German branch, Odeon, convinces manager Brian Epstein and producer George Martin that they can’t sell large quantities of records unless The Beatles sung their songs in German.

Thus the Fab Four hit the French recording studio where they recorded “Komm, Gib Mir Deine Hand” (“I Want To Hold Your Hand”) and “Sie Liebt Dich” (“She Loves You”).  Despite multiple takes, they still had enough time to record “Can’t Buy Me Love” which was all but perfected in four takes.


The Beatles 1969

On this day in 1969 The Beatles were back in the Apple Studios.  They recorded “I Want You” (later renamed “I Want You (She’s So Heavy)” and another take of “The One After 909”.  They also jammed out two Buddy Holly covers—1957’s “Not Fade Away” and 1961’s “Mailman Bring Me No More Blues”.

They recorded another take of “Teddy Boy” then went back in time again to do their version of “Besame Mucho” which they performed in 1962 as part of their audition for EMI.  While nothing from this day was ever originally committed to vinyl, “Besame Mucho” made it into the motion picture Let It Be.
