I Want to Hold Your Hand

Music by John Lennon and Paul McCartney

Originally Performed by The Beatles

"I Want to Hold Your Hand" was the first Beatles record to be made using four-track equipment. With advance orders exceeding one million copies in the United Kingdom, "I Want to Hold Your Hand" would have gone straight to the top of the British record charts on its day of release (29 November 1963) had it not been blocked by the group's first million seller "She Loves You", their previous UK single, which was having a resurgence of popularity following intense media coverage of the group. Taking two weeks to dislodge its predecessor, "I Want to Hold Your Hand" stayed at number one for five weeks and remained in the UK top fifty for twenty-one weeks in total.

It was also the group's first American number one, entering the Billboard Hot 100 chart on 13 January 1964 at number forty-five and starting the British invasion of the American music industry. By 1 February it held the number-one spot, and stayed there for seven weeks before being replaced by "She Loves You", a reverse scenario of what had occurred in Britain. It remained on the US charts for a total of fifteen weeks. "I Want to Hold Your Hand" became the Beatles' best-selling single worldwide. In 2013, Billboard magazine named it the 44th biggest hit of "all-time" on the Billboard Hot 100 charts.

The Beatles : Selections from The Beatles Anthology, Volume 1

The fall of 1995 witnessed a resurgence of the power- ful cultural phenomenon 'Beatlemania.'

There was a two-volume, retrospective CD set released in conjunction with this special, and these songbooks feature selections from the The Beatles Anthology, Volumes I, II, and III. Volume I includes 'Free As A Bird' and 26 more Beatles classics: Can't Buy Me Love - From Me to You - A Hard Day's Night - Hello Little Girl - I Want to Hold Your Hand - Love Me Do - Money - Please Please Me - She Loves You - Twist and Shout - You Really Got a Hold on Me - You'll Be Mine - and more.
