To say that The Beatles have the most impressive catalog of original music in rock history with certainly be an understatement as the Lennon-McCartney songbook is the best-known and most successful musical collaboration ever by records sold, with the Beatles selling over 600 million records worldwide as of 2004. Between 5 October 1962 and 8 May 1970, the partnership published approximately 180 jointly credited songs, of which the vast majority were recorded by the Beatles, forming the bulk of their catalog.
During an interview with ‘The King of All Media Howard Stern, McCartney would discuss the song he felt was his most prolific creation. Surprisingly he was able to name one, going with ‘I Saw Her Standing There’ which is one of the top tracks of the group’s first album. Credit to Far Out Magazine for the below.
I wrote it with John. We sagged off school and wrote it on guitars. I remember I had the lyrics, ‘Just seventeen/Never been a beauty queen,’ which John… it was one of the first times he ever went, ‘What? Must change that!’ And it became, ‘you know what I mean.’”
One fan would write their admiration and love for this album as the reviewer stated: “This was Beatlemania at its peak. What is amazing is that this album’s 28 or so minutes are so energetic, joyous, and skilled, that this record still creates awe. To think these four guys made these harmonies, played these instruments live, wrote most of these songs, and did it amid non-stop tours, is humbling. No auto-tunes, no studio musicians covering for inept band members, this album, with its simple love songs, set the bar so high, that few ever met its standard. And the thing is, these guys just kept getting better. For anyone else, this album alone would have been a career. For the Beatles, it was just a step along the highway.”
