Filled Under:

ON THIS DAY IN 1964 . . .

. . . the Beatles' scored their sixth No. 1 song when "I Feel Fine" hit the top of the charts.

I was just a kid in Sydney Australia, recently evacuated out of Indonesia when the Beatles hit the big time. Their previous Number 1 hits that year were I Want to Hold Your Hand" . . . "She Loves You" . . . "Can't Buy Me Love" . . . "Love Me Do" and of course "A Hard Day's Night."

When their music came out, everybody was crazy about the Beatles. It completely blew us away - I'd never even heard music on the radio before . . . suddenly the great tunes of the Fab Four, belting out at us from everywhere. I remember those days like it was yesterday . . .
