@Setanta,
Man, do I love that music! Almost garage-band like in it's purity. Their harmonies are immense...despite the shrieking teenies. They also seemed to be enjoying themselves.

Hell, I remember listening to these 2 hits on Top 40 AM radio ..on a little crystal radio...and an earphone. My Dad wasn't a fan.

@Ragman,
That last one was very garage band worthy . . . and i don't think it's inappropriate to describe the Silver Beatles of 1961 as a garage band.

One of my favorite songs--it is, along with the entire album, inextricably blended in my mind with The Lord of the Rings . . .

@Setanta,
I was referring to the arrangement...garage-band like...not the production perfection the studio-group they became. Their example of how to harmonize regardless of the noise is exemplary.

The boys invade the United States . . . this is the full Ed Sullivan performance. George Harrison was two days shy of his 21st birthday. The boys look and sound nervous to me.

@boomerang,
It was always one of my favorites, from the first time i heard it.

Here's another sad song, but not so heart-wrenching . . .

@Setanta,
Love it. timeless classics. To my ears, it still stands up the test of time as some of the best music I listen to (as is Norwegian Wood)

They were always rockers at heart, and they were always irreverent. In the third chorus, John and George are singing "Frère Jacques rather than the written chorus:

Other than being smart enough to make most of them love songs, i don't think they were hide-bound by any style.
