When I was very young my parents would often play 1 and the
White Album for some reason.

Songs that stuck most with me were: She loves you, I Want To Hold Your Hand, Yellow Submarine, Eleanor Rigby (I was a dark kid), Hello Goodbye, The Continuing Story Of Bungalow Bill, Obladi Oblada, oh and I really liked Helter Skelter for some reason. Can you imagine a 4 year old loving Helter Skelter?

Maybe Piggies is good too, if you actually don't understand English or what it's about.

Wow, I feel old if you were listening to 1 as a kid :lol: ;-)

 

When I was little, my parents used to play their copies of the Red and Blue albums, Meet the Beatles, Something Else, AHDN and Help! (all the US Capitol versions, obviously), and Sgt. Pepper on vinyl. Also used to listen to loads of Beatles on the radio as a kid. Once the CD albums were released in 1987 I was hooked for good.

For my own kids, I just play Beatles all the time but they've loved them from the first moment I've played them for them and have known all the lyrics from 2 yrs old onward!

 

Hmm apparently I was 6 and a half when 1 was released. November 2000, wikipedia says. I thought I was even younger but apparently not. But yes, I'm only 19 so I guess that's pretty young indeed haha.

It's funny. Both my parents were actually too young to really have experienced the whole Beatlesthing too. My dad is from '61 and my mom from '65. They became fans a few years after the split up, which must have been slightly different from becoming a fan now, 40 years later.

My parents were born in the mid '50s, and it was watching Anthology with them when I was a teen was when I "got" the Beatles. Next day, Dad gave me White Album and Abbey Road on vinyl. I still have those records. brian-epstein
