At number 16 in Rolling Stone Magazine’s list of the 100 greatest Beatles songs is “I Saw Her Standing There”. This song was recorded in February 1963 and released on their debut album Please Please Me in March 1963. It is the opening track on their debut album, and was never released as a single in the Disunited Kingdom. However, in the USA it was the B-side of their debut single released by Capitol Records, with “I Want to Hold Your Hand” on the A-side. This single was The Beatles’ breakthrough in the USA, getting to number 1 in January 1964 and staying at number 1 for 7 weeks.

At number 16 in Rolling Stone Magazine’s list of the 100 greatest Beatles songs is “I Saw Her Standing There”

The song, written mainly by Paul McCartney but with some contribution from John Lennon, was written in 1962. McCartney scribbled the lyrics in a notebook from the grammar school that he had attended as a teenager.

(1,2,3,4!)

Well, she was just 17
You know what I mean
And the way she looked was way beyond compare
So how could I dance with another (Ooh)
When I saw her standing there

Well she looked at me, and I, I could see
That before too long I’d fall in love with her
She wouldn’t dance with another (Whooh)
When I saw her standing there

Well, my heart went “boom”
When I crossed that room
And I held her hand in mine…

Whoah, we danced through the night
And we held each other tight
And before too long I fell in love with her
Now I’ll never dance with another (Whooh)
Since I saw her standing there

Well, my heart went “boom”
When I crossed that room
And I held her hand in mine…

Whoah, we danced through the night
And we held each other tight
And before too long I fell in love with her
Now I’ll never dance with another (Whooh)
Since I saw her standing there
