Funnily, the first Beatles song I (consciously) heard was not Yesterday or Hey Jude but The Continuing Story Of Bungalow Bill .The music teacher I had in fifth grade is a Beatles fan and when we sang songs in class it were always Beatles songs. We started with Bungalow Bill and he told us it was from the White Album. So, stupid young me thought Bungalow Bill is one of the Beatles most famous songs ( I really liked it, too) and that the White Album consists of similar sounding songs only ( and the Beatles canon in general) .  

Much later I found out to my great surprise that Bungalow Bill is not that popular, in fact, it even has lots of haters, and that the Beatles had lots of other songs from many different genres that were even better. 

That was a real paradise moment as I discovered more and more Beatles songs but I still like Bungalow Bill and if it's just out of nostalgia.

Not once does the diversity seem forced -- the genius of the record is how the vaudevillian "When I'm 64" seems like a logical extension of "Within You Without You" and how it provides a gateway to the chiming guitars of "Lovely Rita. - Stephen T. Erlewine on Sgt Pepper's

I Want To Hold Your Hand in 2012 when I was watching this video (you can hear it at 2:08):

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rn17-d-vIXw

Fast forward 4 1/3 years later, I was told about the Beatles by a friend at school. With research I found that this song was one of their most famous songs, so I took a listen and I was like, "Oh my God, I heard this 4 years ago!"

For some reason at that time, Help!, Yesterday, and While My Guitar Gently Weeps sounded familiar.

The one I have the best memory of is Here Comes The Sun.

My earliest Beatles concerned memory, though, is my year 4 (that's like age 8 or 9) teacher telling us about the Beatles and in particular, John Lennon and how he was killed. Pretty sure after hearing such a happy tale of walruses and peppers we were all traumatized.

I also remember Yellow Submarine, but me and my friends sang it a different way:

"we all live in a yellow submarine,

we didn't like the color so we painted it green.

we didn't like green so we painted it red,

but red wasn't waterproof and now we're all dead."

Bit morbid for a group of nine year olds, but hey we all start somewhere.

Yellow Submarine, which should be quite a common song to first hear.

At primary school (elementary if you're in America) they used to play songs off the Beatles 1 compilation in assembly every morning. I'm pretty sure this is when I first heard them. It's difficult to pin down which specific song I heard first but it was probably something like She Loves You.

The song I heard that got me 'properly' into them and started my fandom was I'm Only Sleeping, some 16 years or so after primary school.

I grew up on their music, pretty much literally from the day I was born. I can't remember a time in which I didn't know who they were. Obviously because of that I can't remember what my first ever song was, but I know Something and Yesterday could put me to sleep. Even as a child I struggled with insomnia, so that was quite an achievement! Though apparently John was my favourite when I was a Tiny Moriz, according to my mom.

Off topic slightly: I've just remembered my last Beatles song I ever heard, and could probably prove it: Only A Northern Song. Can anyone else remember their last song?

No memory of not hearing Beatles music, it was always there, either at my mum's or mostly, my gran's house. But, I think the  songs that I  consciously remember listening to were; Lady Madonna, Elenor Rigby and The Fool On The Hill, no link at all, except all having a story I was interested in, I can remember feeling  really sad about the man on the hill.

My dad used to play I Will and Rocky Racoon for my brother and me before bed when we were little kids. Those are probably the ones that stick out, though my entire childhood was filled with Beatle tunes.

Here is my full Beatles story:

According to my mom, I listened to The Beatles a lot when I was younger (so much younger than today). I'm guessing it was when I was very young because I don't even have a vague memory of listening to them as a kid. I'm pretty sure my very brief Beatles phase ended when I saw The Wiggles on Playhouse Disney, but that's a whole different story for a whole different group of friends. Anyways, a couple years later when I was in kindergarten, I heard Here Comes The Sun on the radio. Funny thing is, I thought it was a Wiggles song I never heard before. I thought they were singing "Here Comes A Song" (which is the name of a Wiggles album I never listened to at the time). I did eventually find out they were singing "Here Comes The Sun" and that it wasn't a Wiggles song. Many years later, my friends were really getting into The Beatles. Around that time, I learned about more of their songs like Yellow Submarine, Hey Jude and From Me To You. I decided to see what all the hype was about so I listened to Sgt. Pepper (one of my friend's favorites, and my favorite as well), Rubber Soul and Please Please Me. I eventually became the hardcore Beatles fan I am today.

Here's a short answer to this forum's question for those who don't care enough to read all that: Here Comes The Sun was technically the first Beatles song I remember hearing, but Sgt. Pepper was my first Beatles song as a Beatles fan. But if you're counting solo years, I definitely heard Wonderful Christmastime and Happy Christmas (War is Over) beforehand.

My apologies if this is already posted elsewhere, but.

I curious  to know what song first got you into the Beatles.

 

My "first song" was I Saw Her Standing There

I was 13 and my dad took mr to see the bootleg Beatles. (like they do) They opened with 5-4-3-2-1, But then they did I Saw Her Standing There, I instantly fell in love with it, it was great! They also did All You Need Is Love and Penny Lane then, which I also fell in love with. The rest, was history. a-hard-days-night-ringo-10

I could have sworn I'd already posted here. 

The first song I heard was Help! (Followed by Eight Days A Week and A Hard Day's Night) but it took me another year to get into them, because my dad was refraining from 'scaring me' with I Am The Walrus. He played it, I loved it, and now they are my favourite band.

My first song by The Beatles was Come Together because the first time I actually listened to them intently was when I bought Abbey Road on record. It was off of a recommendation and was the first album I bought.

I can't remember too well, but I think that it was either Come Together, Sgt Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band, or Hey Jude. I remember just looking at how long Hey Jude was, and thinking "This is a really long song" and then I listened to it, and though "Is 3 or 4 minutes of saying "na, na, na, na ,na, na, Hey Jude" really necessary?". But still, I was hooked. And the rest is history...  

Incorrect, past me. I mean, the first Beatles song that I actually listened to was one of those 3, but the first song that I heard about and sang back in elementary school music class was Yellow Submarine. I can't remember if I looked it up later or not, but that would technically be the 1st.
