This is a question about introducing your kids or anyone else to the Beatles or any other group/singer.
Should you start someone off with the group's #1 songs? Or, if possible, do you think it would be better to let them hear complete albums (and possibly singles), and let them decide what songs they like most before they hear what other people picked out as their favorites (ie #1s)? If they get used to hearing the #1s, their ears and minds may be drawn to those songs if/when they get to hear the regular albums.
My husband had only listened to the Beatles 1 album. When he heard "Got to Get You into My Life", he said, "You mean to tell me that wasn't a #1 song?" He was miffed.
My mom's favorite Beatles song is Ob La Di, Ob La Da. I might have lost her if she had only listened to the 1 album.
I believe it depends on the person. I started off with the #1 Album along with a few other songs. And for a while that was all I needed and didn't really move on. Now, I don't even listen to that album because I prefer to listen to the full albums/the majority of an album. Others may only want to listen to the hits because thats all they need especially in this day in age where you can go to itunes and just pick the songs you like; however, at the same time they are missing out on great material.

I'm still a kid, but when I was really young (5 and 6) my favorites were All You Need Is Love, Twist and Shout, Day Tripper, Ticket to Ride, and All Together Now. My 5 and 7 year old brothers favorites right now are Hello Goodbye, All Together Now, I Me Mine, Revolution 1, and Hey Jude.
Yes we're going to a party, party!
