The best No 1 records: the Beatles – From Me To You
1963: It was the year of the Fabs' breakthrough, and this was their first No 1. It still sounds fresh today

1963 saw the Beatles' breakthrough and you can hear the mania in almost everything they recorded that year. Sandwiched between the first big hit (Please Please Me) and the first imperial moment (She Loves You), From Me To You is almost forgotten and so is undimmed by overfamiliarity.
