The girls were basket cases, Moog.  If we showed them a picture of The Beatles, we'd get a response like this...





It was such good sport!    ;D


I liked The Animals better in 1964 and 1965...

Yeah, they did the Sullivan thing too.  And Eric Burdon actually smiled for about two seconds...

Welcome, SilverDollar. I so wish I could have experienced Beatlemania firsthand. I definitely would have been one of those screaming, crying, incoherent girls.  :)

You and I are contemporaries sharing a similar experience in early 1964.  The Beatles appealed to girls much more than they did to us.  I liked what I saw on The Ed Sullivan Show but I liked the rougher groups better like The Animals and The Rolling Stones.  But I knew there was hope for The Beatles when I heard John belt out songs like Twist And Shout, It Won't Be long and Money (That's What I Want).  ;)

By 1965, their music matured and I began to really enjoy The Beatles.  Rubber Soul is what clinched it for me.

Welcome..

Different for me, I saw their first tv appearance as an 11 year old in England and was completely hooked from that point on, John Lennon mesmerized me in particular, but George & Paul also to a slightly lesser degree
Ours was a very musical house, my Dad played piano & clarinet, and up to that point Id been a big fan of Lonny Donigan (Skiffle craze)
Ive loved them ever since that day as an 11 year old. I hounded my Mum for  a round collar Beatle Jacket and eventually got one  ;D
