Hm, well, in my case it's kind of a combination of sorts:
AHDN the album
&
20 Greatest Hits the album

Probably the Blue Album. My dad showed it to me, and when he did that, I would take it all the time and listen to it on the CD player. When I first heard Strawberry fields forever, I fell completely in love with it, and it's still one of my top favorite Beatle songs!

Mine was Sgt Pepper´s. It was my first Beatles album and I was just fascinated with the "Paul is dead" history.

It was a amazing period.

Default Re: What Album or Single That made you a true Beatle Fan!!!

i hadn't seriously started listening to music until i was 15, then suddenly i thought i should try, so i just got four albums randomly- one was the beatles 20 greatest hits. i decided they were good, and got live at the bbc. that was it, it was amazingly fresh, and even though i had not much to compare it with, i knew they were the best.
it's negative somehow, now either i start listening to beatles and hate everything else, or listen to other stuff and try not to compare it with the beatles. wonder if anyone else feels the same. it gets worse after some years when there are no new songs left.

I must have been 13 or 14 years old when I first took notice of the song "Strawberry Fields Forever" and I thought, "Wow! This is really something special!!"

But it wasn't until 1980 (when I was 17) that I bought my first piece of Beatles vinyl, "1967-1970", followed by "1962-1966" and then the "White Album". After that, it was all over--I would spend the rest of my life buying every Beatles album, single, video, and CD (group AND solo, domestic AND import, picture discs AND colored vinyl, legitimate releases AND bootlegs) that I could get my grubby little meathooks on--that I could afford, that is!!

No WONDER I'm so broke today!!

Eight day's a week.

That is the first Beatles song i ever heard. I was like 5 or so, and I had to listen to it all the time. So then I asked my mom every night to play their records. And "KABOOM!" another Beatles fan was formed.

Anothologies 1&2 for me, those were the first I had. I just didn't stop listening to them for months.

Funnily enough, it was "Real Love" for me (some people don't consider that a 'real' Beatles song, either). I watched the Anthology musiv video for it over and over again. Then I discovered that they had other songs.

The first time I heard "Eight days a week" when I was just a little kid, and it's been one of my favorites ever since.

The first song I heard that made me a true Beatles fan?

"I Wanna Hold Your Hand".

I actually hated the Beatles up until the age of 15. I had maybe 3 Beatle songs on my computer ("Hold Your Hand", "She Loves You", "Day Tripper"). For some reason I decided to listen to "I Want To Hold Your Hand" and I liked it again. Then I downloaded more songs. Then I gained knowledge.

Now I have over 500 Beatle songs and outtakes on my computer (BeatleMan@KaZaA) and love them so much!

The song that made me first notice the Beatles was Paul's We All Stand Together. It was released when I was about five and I loved the video! My mum used to play Beatles albums quite a lot, especially Sgt Pepper and the Blue album, and they are what got me really liking the Beatles.
