She Loves You was the first song I ever heard in which it seemed that the singer was speaking directly to me. Somehow this caused a physical reaction in a 10 year old that was akin to being high (naturally or otherwise). I received the Beatles second album as a gift from a cool aunt and having She Loves You to hear every day was like owning treasure. Up until then I could only hear the song on my tiny transistor radio that I had bought for $0.25 at a garage sale. Sometimes I'd turn on the radio and only hear the last 15 or 20 seconds of the song and then not hear it again for weeks. It was so frustrating! Once I had that album I listened to the song every day. This one time I was already in the family car getting ready to drive 400 miles to visit the grandparents. Suddenly I realized I hadn't listened to She Loves You yet. I made an excuse to use the restroom and ran in for a quick listen. The uplifting feelings that listen generated lasted the whole day. I've read too much analysis of all things Fab to pretend that I can separate that knowledge from what went on in a child's mind. I'm sure it has a lot to do with the premise (hey sigh - she loves YOU) and the delivery (she told me what to say-yeaaa!). I'm drawn to the lines Pride can hurt you too, Apologize to her but that sentiment probably went over my head then. I think my initial attraction to the Beatles and this song is the thought that 4 men would beat on drums, strum guitars, sing and shout, and write a song that became my very own.

Oh, yes, I can't count the number of times I was obsessed with a song, and stole away to give it a listen, and commenced to walk upon clouds for the rest of the day. (It was usually a Harrisong ahdn_george_06

Great story, sb! It's from a time when kids had to rely on their imaginations. I could probably tell dozens like it and I cherish them all.

Great story. Music must have been even more appreciated then because you had to actually buy it to hear it when you wanted. Great historical lesson too! I love those little bits of information. It's a song with a simple statement yet powerful message--which is why all ages have taken to them.

Love that song. @Silly Girl.
