The Beatles 100 Best Songs

The legendary Beatles band originated in 1959 in the UK, in the city of Liverpool. The very first line-up of the group included Paul McCartney (bass, guitar, vocals), John Lennon (guitar, vocals), George Harrison (guitar, vocals), Stuart Sutcliff (bass), Pete Best (drums).
At first, the group was known only in Liverpool, then, when in 1960 the musicians left for Germany, they were attracted to the attention of Tony Sheridan, who at that time was a very famous rock and roll performer. Together with The Beatles, Sheridan recorded the studio album Tony Sheridan and The Beatles. It was then that in the creative biography of The Beatles the first serious debut at the international level took place.
After a joint project with Sheridan, Brian Epstein, the owner of the record store, became interested in the group. Since the fall of 1961, he became their manager. When Stuart Sutcliffe left the band in December 1961, the Beatles became a quartet. Then the composition of the group underwent another change: the recording company, with which Epstein was negotiating, demanded to change the drummer Pete Best for his agreement to collaborate with the Beatles.
The first Beatles single, titled Love Me Do, was recorded at the then-unknown Parlophone Recording Studio in December 1962. Brian Epstein, trying to arouse public interest in the new hit of the group, took a rather risky step – he bought the first ten thousand copies. This commercial trick was a success – interest in the instantly scattered record attracted a lot of buyers. The Beatles’ first independent album was released in early 1963. By 1964, the whole world was crazy about the Beatles.
The official “birthday” of the Beatlemania phenomenon is considered to be the day the Beatles performed in the London Palladium Hall on October 13, 1963. Their concert was broadcast on television and attracted about fifteen million viewers. At the same time, thousands of fans of the group instead of watching a TV show preferred to gather at the concert hall building, hoping to see their idols in life.
On November 4 of that year, the Beatles performed at the Prince of Wales Theater. Their performance was the highlight of the Royal Variety show program. The Queen Mother herself admired the Beatles song “Till There Was You You”.
This time, the journalists of the British edition of “New Musical Express” did not make their categorical choice, but asked the famous musicians to choose their favorite song of the “Liverpool Four” and as a result amounted to TOP 100.

Among those interviewed by the NME were Arcade Fire, Johnny Marr, Royal Blood, Alt-J, Matt Bellamy, Jake Bagg, Bob Dylan, Noel and Liam Gallagher, The Killers, St Vincent, The Cribs, Fat White Family, Palma Violets, The Vaccines and many, many others.
