I'm sorry, but it's gotta start off with the famous 1-2-3-4,  I Saw Her Standing There, finally it's gotta end with Twist And Shout as we all know it was the last song they had to record that night and John had to sing it with a sore throat.

The rest is irrelevant! a-hard-days-night-ringo-15

This was an amazing album. Every cut was a hit. I was just a young kid at the time but I was already accustomed to the idea that an album had two maybe three good songs on it and the rest was just filler. This was an album you could never grow tired of hearing. 

But for me beginning with that count off of "a 123 faw!" And capping it off with Twist And Shout is the definition of musical joy.

Although it's mistakenly thought of as a Lennon and McCartney song, this cover has to be one of the most earth-shattering performances from a band. Twist And Shout- Lennon squeezing every breath he's got left in his lungs, Harrison's note perfect solo, Ringo belting the living hell out of his Ludwig kit and McCartneys bass jumping and dancing, with his final HEYYY!!! as they got to the end of the song. The tightest live performance of a song ever!!
