This hit Beatles song was released in 1963 today. It set and surpassed several records in the UK charts, and set a record in the US as one of the five Beatles songs that held the top five chart positions simultaneously.
It is their best-selling single in the UK. In 2004, Rolling Stone ranked this song number 64 on their list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.
In 2009, BBC Radio 2 announced that this song was the Beatles’ all-time best-selling single in the UK.
McCartney says “I’d planned an ‘answering song’ where a couple of us would sing ‘she loves you’ and the other ones would answer ‘yeah yeah’.”
“We decided that was a crummy idea but at least we then had the idea of a song called ‘She Loves You’. So we sat in the hotel bedroom for a few hours and wrote it, John and I, sitting on twin beds with guitars.”
It was completed the following day at McCartney’s family home at Forthlin Road, Liverpool.
