Which is your favourite Beatles Number 1 Single?

Every year on June 25, Global Beatles Day is celebrated. Often referred to as the world’s love letter day to the band, it was founded in 2009 and includes people collectively celebrating and rejoicing the band’s ideals and promoting their music and words.

Most fans of the Beatles would argue that even more than half a century after their first single, they are still the biggest, most influential group in the history of pop music.

During May 1963 to June 1969, the Beatles spent a total of 69 weeks with a number one single.   17 singles made it to the number one spot and the question is:

There were several aspects to the work of The Beatles that made them stand out from the rest. One is the variety of their songs, from soft romantic ballads to hard rock, from soppy love songs to social commentary. Next is the development in their songwriting and styles from 1963 to 1969: in six short years they progressed from very simple pop songs which now seem commercial but then were refreshing to complex fusions - and they took [dragged] the music scene with them; other groups were [are] very good at one style but kept that style for all their career. From the simplistic "Love Me Do" to the complexity of say, "Across the Universe", it would be difficult to believe it was the same group. Thirdly is the balance within the band with John and Paul almost vying with each other with each song produced [although they kept every song as a Lennon/McCartney song]; while John had the power and commitment, Paul had the musicality to keep the output popular; they had George's excellent guitar playing and experimentation and Ringo's strong rhythm section. Then there is their personalities and humour when interviewed: instead of the miserable image of many bands, they were witty and iconoclastic.
All this combined to make them the icons they became. While the Stones kept their greater rock music going and the Beach Boys had cleverer harmonies, the Beatles had so much more.

Close Your Eyes and I’ll Kiss You. Always reminds me of when my husband and I were courting. He was posted to Belize and this was popular at the time.

If one looks at all the Beatles songs. Then looks at all the song that have been orchestrated and sung and improved by other artists. The Beatles were amazing songwriters . . I'd love to play Hey Jude on a large pipe organ like Liverpool Cathedral. This is the strength of the quality of the music, it's so versatile
So many of the songs were pure genius . A lot of artists songs have one or two chords which make the song totally interesting and unique, The Beatles were no exception.

As a Stones fan I never liked the Beatles but will concede that Hey Jude is a decent song. The rest is commercial tat.
