I can’t remember any vivid experiences of first-time Beatles songs, but do recall being immediately wowed by RAM when someone else blasted the whole vinyl from beginning to end.

The first time I heard Hear Comes the Sun I just needed that cheerful, hopeful message towards the end of winter. I felt the arrival of spring in that song so deeply that I have wanted to hear it every spring since it first came out, and that’s a LOT of years!

And also I was thrilled to realise that this was George’s song and this was going to be a chart topper and he too was a musical genius coming into his own.

^ That’s right, @oldfannz, the song came out as your hemisphere was in early Spring. Cool story! Thanks for that perspective.

I still hear this song being played by random people in random places in spring and summer! “Sun, sun, sun, here it comes!”

(Well, not a lot of it about down here at the moment, or only after a frosty night!).

I Need You ‘ when I was young completely enslaved me, I was mesmerized for a long time by the Wah-Wah sound. Being the opening track on the pre-’87 ‘Help !’ cassette meant I was playing the album incessantly which no doubt played a large part in my deepening fan status.
