The Beatles

Forty-eight years ago today (so, for those not quick at math, we’re talking 1963), the Beatles landed their first No. 1 single in the U.K. with “From Me to You.”

The single was the second of three that year before the band started recording full-length albums.  This was the Brit group’s first top hit and the first of 11 consecutive No. 1 spots on the Billboard Charts.

The song’s title was inspired from a column in the British newspaper The New Musical Express. It was one of the last songs Paul McCartney and John Lennon wrote collaboratively.

The thing I liked about ‘From Me to You’ was it had a very complete middle,” McCartney said about the hit song. “It went to a surprising place. The opening chord of the middle section of that song heralded a new batch for me. That was a pivotal song. Our songwriting lifted a little with that song.
