The Beatles First Single "Love Me Do" Is 50
Posted by Joseph Lee on 10.05.2012



NME reports that The Beatles first single "Love Me Do" turns fifty years old today. The single was released on October 5, 1962, along with releases from James Brown, King Brothers, Shane Fenton and the Fentones and Matt Monro.

The song was released through Parlophone and slowly climbed the charts. It eventually peaked at #17 in the last week of December. Beatlemania would follow a year later after the band had scored two #1 singles, a #1 album and had three headlining UK tours. Two versions of the song exist: one with Ringo Starr on drums and one with Andy White on drums and Starr on tambourine (after doubts of his performance). The song was recorded on September 4, 1962.

One of the things being done to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Beatles is a restored version of their 1967 film Magical Mystery Tour. It aired after Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band and was their third film. It follows the band taking a coach trip to the seaside. The remastered and re-edited version will air with a new documentary (featuring new footage and outtakes) Saturday on BBC2.
