The Beatles’ third UK single was released on 11 April 1963.
Whereas Please Please Me had only topped some of the singles charts, ‘From Me To You’ was an unequivocal smash hit.
Its catalogue number was Parlophone R 5015, and the b-side was ‘Thank You Girl’.
Nine days after its release From Me To You began its 21-week run in the UK charts; it reached number one on 4 May, and remained there for seven weeks.
