  Beatlemania (1962 - 1964)
  by Alan W. Pollack
Previous
  At the end of 1962 the Beatles released their first single Love Me Do / P.S. I Love You. It was followed shortly in January 1963 by their second one Please Please Me / Ask Me Why. Then, in April From Me To You / Thank You Girl appeared. The same month saw their first album: Please Please Me. It was followed in August by the single She Loves You / I'll Get You. Next in November the public could buy both the single I Want To Hold Your Hand / This Boy and the album With The Beatles. It started the Beatlemania, that reigned high in 1964. That year the group released the single Can't Buy Me Love / You Can't Do That in February, followed in June by the EP Long Tall Sally with the original I Call Your Name and three cover songs. One month later, in July, already the single A Hard Day's Night / Things We Said Today and the album A Hard Day's Night were available to the public. In November of the same year the single I Feel Fine / She's A Woman and the album Beatles For Sale were released. All in all this output totals to eight singles, one EP and four albums, of which the songs are analyzed here by Alan W. Pollack.
