Default What got you into the Beatles, and what was the first song you heard?

I heard Revolution, and then looked deeper, and here I am.

The first song by the beatles i ever heard was in kindergarden, i remember it very well the song was twist and shout, i asked my parents who sang it and they refused to tell me, (they knew it was trouble from the begining) Then my chorus teacher turned me on to it, and my mother deepened the obsession by buying me my first beatles cd, then after that became the only thing i ever listened to my father told me about the movie yellow submarine, then i got hooked, so i started getting more and more cds and movies, and pictures, along with a belly button ring (which i got my belly button pierced souly so i could wear the ring and show it off) a pair of beatles earrings, a couple beatle shirts, books and my pride and joy my beatle purse, hehe... and here i am, the biggest beatle nut in my city... i think... i hope... and the biggest ringo nut in my school. one of my friends is an exact replica of ringo down to height, eye color, hair, shoe size, nose size, ect. almost exactly like ringo when he was young... ok im done rambling! thats the history of my beatle obsession...

What got me into them is that I hated mid-70's top 40 disco dance hits when I was a young teenager, so I started listening to oldies instead. Not sure what the first song I heard was though, since I grew up in the 60's and no doubt heard the Beatles all the time (even though I don't have any memory of it)...

I'd just heard the Carpenter's remake of Please Mr. Postman and told my cousine (this was probably in early '75 or thereabouts). She told me that the Beatles did a better version and played it for me. Then she showed me the cover of Beatles VI and I was totally hooked!

I remember hearing "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" when I was pretty young. I don't remember which CD/tape it was that my dad had, because it wasn't Sgt. Peppers, but he would play that one all the time and the only song I remember is "LSD".

I don't think that was the song that really got me into the Beatles, though. I remember one day in grade 6 when I was just leaving for school in the morning and heard "Twist and Shout" coming on the radio. My dad was singing along and dancing to it, and I just thought, "what a nerd. This is music for old people." I do remember I liked the song, though. And less than six months later I went through a transformation and was a full-fledged Beatle fan.

I have a video of me singing She loves you when I was 3 years old. So that was probably the first one I heard.

The first song I heard was "I want to Hold your hand" when I heard it on the radio in 1964. I was 8 years old, and it sounded so different compared to all the other music on the radio at the time, that I was instantly hooked.

I got into the beatles by being fortunate enough to be born at the right time in history to see them emerge on the American pop scene as the biggest and greatest phenonmenon since Elvis. "Before Elvis there was nothing." - John Lennon. First song: All My Loving.

I got into the Beatles by watching a biography of them with my mom when I was nine. The first song that I really remember listening to was She Loves You, but I think I'd heard Twist and Shout and a few of the other 'standards(?)' before then too.

I remember listening to Octopus's Garden when I was really little. When I was about 8 I had a cassette tape with 20 Greatest Hits (all of your basic hits). I know Abbey Road was the only album we had on cd (except for the Imagine soundtrack) until I was about 14. :)

The first Beatles song I ever heard was "Help!" I don't remember that time, because I was three or four days old, but it seems to be the song that sticks out in my mind the most when someone asks that question. I do have vague memories of singing along to "Ticket To Ride" when I was a little older.

I got into them from my dad. Who would play all their movies and records on constant revolution for my entire life.

Nothing got me into them, but I got to see the “Abbey road/AHDN” CD in the shop and thought, what a strange name it was: “Beatles” and what could it mean. (and now I’m here)

My third grade music teacher played "Oc. Garden," "Yel. Sub," and "All Together Now" on piano, and taught us the songs. I was so enamored with them I sang them for my mom and dad at dinner that night, and after we ate Dad played me Abbey Road and the White Album on cassette, and I've been hooked ever since.
