19. Love Me Do (1962) / Please Please Me
4/18 votes

The next song to depart in this survivor is The Beatles' debut single 'Love Me Do'. It originally peaked at #17 in the U.K. but was later re-promoted in 1982, so its eventual peak became #4. However, it was a #1 single in the U.S.! This occurred a whole two years after it was originally released in the U.K. though. The song features on the group's first studio album 'Please Please Me', where it includes session drummer Andy White and Ringo merely on tambourine. Things were still being smoothed out following Pete Best's recent departure from The Beatles. The composition of 'Love Me Do' can be traced back to the late 1950s, where a young Paul McCartney had started to write it while truant from school. Lennon later contributed his own lyrics. He also played the famous harmonica parts of the song. It's a pretty simple and repetitive love song, as a lot of their early compositions often were. It's always interesting to compare this debut single to their later work as the progression really shines through.

'Love Me Do' is cute, I definitely have a soft spot for that one. It's mental how they went from something like that to 'I Am The Walrus' in 5 years though laugh.gif

Went for 'We Can Work It Out' again!

Love Me Do would have been my next choice so no problem with that leaving.

Time for Something to go!

Pleased enough that 'Love Me Do' made the top 20 I guess. Never realised until recently that it got #1 so far into their US career / so long after its original release laugh.gif

I've gone for We Can Work It Out also this time. I do really like it but it isn't as essential as most of the others left.

everything left is great bar one song - the overrated Come Together. So I'm piling early in on that one as I can't bear to vote for anything else while that is still on the list.....
