What a way to kick off your debut LP. McCartney admits to stealing the bassline directly from Chuck Berry’s Talkin’ About You, but even today it's a sure-fire dancefloor filler. Is there are more recogniseable "one... two... three... four!" count-in in pop history?
Why you love it:
“The Best Beatles Song: "I Saw Her Standing There"... this was the first track on the first album that started the Beatles phenomenon. Paul counted 123fa and the whole world went crazy. Even I as a kid growing up in Karachi, Pakistan got caught up in the magic that was The Beatles. You could just feel the excitement in I Saw Her Standing There, the vocals, the guitars, the bass and the drums that carried it all through till The End...” (From Tariq via Facebook, thanks)
