Please Please Me

The Beatles released “Please Please Me” as their second single in 1963. Legend has it that shortly after recording the track, producer George Martin pronounced to the group, “Congratulations, you have just recorded your first number one!” The prophecy was fulfilled as the song topped the British charts a month after its release.
