I've probably heard songs like "Yesterday" or "Hey Jude" on radio before, but the song that got me hooked into the Beatles was "Twist and Shout", and I've heard it in the movie Ferris Bueller's Day Off. I loved that scene where the whole town was dancing to the song. :)

The first song I remember that I heard consciously knowing that it was the Beatles was "Help!", on the radio. And Help! was the first Beatles movie I saw and the first album I bought, and both of them starts with the title track. So I can consider "Help!" as the introductory song to my Beatles fanaticism.

I really can't remember which one was the first. I think it was either She Loves You, I Want To Hold Your Hand or Help!.

I guess the first one was "All My Loving" since that's the first one they sang on Ed Sullivan's show but I am not sure I remember that.  :) The first one I remember is "Ticket to Ride". I was being a little pest, peeking in the door of my brother's room while he and his friend were playing the 45.

I love that one too. There's just something about it. Like Jerry Seinfeld, though, I have to wonder just what did Paul mean when he said she was just seventeen.  ;D

'She was a seventeen-year-old nymphomanic, working on the streets of Broadway'

The first Beatles song that i seem to remember hearing was Yellow Submarine. Correct me if i'm wrong but i take it it is John doing the posh voice in this song?

Produced by George Martin and engineered by Geoff Emerick, "Yellow Submarine" was finished after five takes on 26 May 1966, in Studio Two at Abbey Road Studios, with special effects being added on 1 June 1966.[6] On the second session the studio store cupboard was ransacked for special effects, which included chains, a ship's bell, tap dancing mats, whistles, hooters, waves, a tin bath filled with water, wind and thunderstorm machines, as well as a cash register, which was later used on Pink Floyd's song "Money".[8]
 
Lennon blew through a straw into a pan of water to create a bubbling effect, McCartney and Lennon talked through tin cans to create the sound of the captain's orders, at 1:38-40 in the song, Ringo stepped outside the doors of the recording room and yelled like a sailor acknowledging "Cut the cable! Drop the cable!", which was looped into the song afterwards, and Abbey Road employees John Skinner and Terry Condon twirled chains in a tin bath to create water sounds.[6] After the line, "and the band begins to play", Emerick found a recording of a brass band and changed it slightly so it could not be identified, although it is thought to be a recording of Georges Krier and Charles Helmer's 1906 composition, "Le Rêve Passe".[6] The original recording had a spoken intro by Starr, but the idea was abandoned on 3 June 1966.[6]
 
When the overdubs were finished, Evans strapped on a marching bass drum and led everybody in a line around the studio doing the conga dance whilst banging on the drum.[8]
 
"Yellow Submarine" was mixed on 2 and 3 June, and finished on 22 June 1966.


Ringo Starr – vocal, drums
 Paul McCartney – backing vocal, shouting, bass guitar
 John Lennon – backing vocal, shouting,[7] acoustic guitar
 George Harrison – backing vocal, tambourine, acoustic guitar
 Mal Evans – backing vocal, bass drum
 George Martin – backing vocal, producer
 Geoff Emerick – backing vocal, engineer
 Neil Aspinall – backing vocal
 Alf Bicknell – sound effects (rattling chains)
 Pattie Harrison – backing vocal
 Marianne Faithfull – backing vocal
 Brian Jones – backing vocal, sound effects (clinking glasses)

I'm pretty sure the first song I ever heard was Love Me Do. It was the song that made me a fan. I heard it playing in a restaurant five years ago, asked my parents who the band was 'cause the song was familiar, and the rest is history. I recognized it 'cause when I was younger my parents played the 1 album a lot, and since Love Me Do is the first song on it, it's most likely the first one I ever heard.

During one of the very few times that I saw my dad when I was very young,I can remember when I was standing in front of his television when I was about 3 and the Yellow Submarine movie was on and I'm not really sure but I think Yellow Submarine was the song that was being played.It's funny because I don't really like Yellow Submarine and I don't really like listening to it because it makes me sad.

I Want to Hold Your Hand. I think I heard it on the Ed Sullivan show when I was a little kid. My friends and I used to pretend we were the Beatles, and I was Ringo.

I Wanna Hold Your Hand was the first Beatles song I knew...as well as the first song I ever actually really liked (other than the Star Wars theme), before I got into music.

 "Come Together" 1993. I was 13. It was on record and even at 13 I was like "WOW".  :D

I had the same response when I first heard the song at age 19.  And in 1969 we were hearing Come Together for the very first time!  We were all like "WOW."

The first song that I can say I was really consciously aware was the Beatles - and the one that got me hooked - was "A Hard Day's Night".

Sorry for the back-to-back posts but I posted the previous reply after reading only page 1. I now see some discussion of "Come Together" and wanted to share that back in '69, I used to visit an older friend of mine and we would listen to Come Together repeatedly. As an 8-year kid, I thought it sounded "weird" at the time because back then I was more into pure commercial "pop" music. My friend had a uniquely styled chair in his house and I would always sit in that chair when we listened to the 45 because of the lyric "hold you in his armchair you can feel his disease". Later, my friend gave me that 45 and I still have it in my collection.

"Act Naturally" is one of the first Beatles songs I remember, KE. I got a hold of the single-it either had been my sister's or brother's-and played it a lot. I liked the song and I also liked to watch the swirly Capitol records logo go around on my record player. I was a weird little kid.

"She Loves You" in January, 1964 on an American radio station. No deejay intro, just Ringo's toms, followed by jangling guitars and tight harmonies. Damn!

I 'knew' and openly dispised songs like Yellow Submarine (I didn't give them a chance), but the first one I listened to that made me a fan was 'Paperback Writer' on the radio. Still love that song and many others.   :)
