I voted for "Baby It's You" but I have to qualify that by saying that it's the BBC version that I like. I have just always loved the song. This is the first version I remember:

Smith - Baby It's You [Excellent quality] (Live, 1969)

That's tough...I adore most of these songs. Think I'll go with I Saw Her Standing There, though. It never gets old and makes me feel so goooood.  :)

Please Please Me wins for me, although Twist And Shout takes some beating despite being a cover version.

Who decides which songs qualified for the poll though? To omit From Me To You and particularly She Loves You and yet go on to include I Want To Hold Your Hand seems bizarre to say the least.

Many truly great tracks from 1962-63 but if one record stands out as their "anthem" from that period it surely has to be She Loves You. Ridiculous to not have it on the shortlist!!!  :o ???

I also think that She Loves You should've been on the list.If it was then I would've chosen that :) Last night I was actually listening to She Loves You and could'nt help but realize how much I really love that song.

I heard it last night too, Jema. Whenever I do I just get this feeling of awe, thinking that this is a song that so many people heard first; that whenever they hear it they think, "This is what made me love The Beatles!"

^I think I actually heard She Loves You a couple nights ago, too. Loooove that song. It's one of those songs where it seems like you were just born knowing it and being familiar with it. The first time I actually sat down and listened to it, I'm like "Yeah, I totally know this song". And that last note on the very last "Yeah" of the song is sooooo AMAZING. I look forward to hearing that every time.

Is She Loves You a single or something. I don't think I've ever heard it...

Don't bother. It's by The Hollies anyway.

This is the reaction it used to get. It still does in my heart!
