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.

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.

Want to hear my "mad" theory about She Loves You? Could some of the lyrics of She Loves You have been subconsciously inspired by the Bob Wooler incident?

The reason I say so is that it was six days previously i.e before writing commenced, that Lennon was ordered by Epstein to send an apology by telegram to Wooler. The telegram was sent 20th June 1963 and they began She Loves you on 26th June at Turk's Hotel in Newcastle.

Check out the lyrics:

"You know it's up to you
I think it's only fair
Pride can hurt you too
Apologize to her"

Also..

She said you hurt her so
She almost lost her mind (Lennon actually said he was out of his mind)
And now she says she knows
You're not the hurting kind

The whole theme of the song is of reconciliation. I think the fact that the events were so close and that it really shook Lennon up (he said he thought he was close to killing Wooler) it can't be coincidence. Or perhaps McCartney wrote those words in the third person with the events in mind.

I'm not saying they set out to consciously write about it or that the song is about Bob Wooler but that the events subconsciously influenced some lyrics. I did message Mark Lewisohn about this and but he might think it's just another mad theory...and maybe it is.

Interesting theory, Leppo. It is fun to think about. Was it just a coincidence or did John draw from what he said to Wooler and turn it into a song about young love lost/recovered? It wouldn't be the only example of John masking a real life situation by turning it into a fictional story told in song ('She Said She Said' leaps to mind). 

Have the contents of the telegram, even partially, ever been published? I am trying to remember if I have a book that divluges them. That would tell the tale, I'm sure. It would be cool if ML responded to your inquiry.

If that's really when the song was written, that is ...

Well, the band members aren't as big as they look in pictures, you know, there's an optical illusion going on. They're really quite small.

They were still bigger than Jesus, though. They do say people were smaller 2,000 years ago. a-hard-days-night-george-4
