What a phenomenal document
This recording is. The girls have trouble clapping on the right beat, and The Beatles, themselves, seem to be gobsmacked at the insane reaction they are getting. The climax seems to occur whenever they hit that "Meeee" note.
The song was the b-side to She Loves You, and Lennon and McCartney are actually poking fun at themselves after the "Yeah yeah yeah" fusillade of the a-side with sardonic Northern accented "Oh yeah"s for the flip.
Honestly, we may never see anything quite like this again, in regards to adoration for a musical group or artist. It was a perfect storm that reached the ultimate critical mass. So big, in fact, as to carry numerous other groups and artists on their coattails.
