It's possible the Fisher-Price music maker in my crib played Yellow Submarine if I pressed the Yellow button.

She Loves You. Mid 60’s in grade school. Played that 45 on a small junky suit case player over and over and over.... Man, those harmonies!

"She Loves You". I was in the back seat of Al Valentine's mother's car sitting at a traffic light on Pinecrest Drive on my way to Lincoln Junior High in Ferndale, Michigan. The song was played on the Dick Purtan show on WKNR in Detroit. After the dark days of the Kennedy assassination, it like watching the sun rise.

She Loves You.

8 years old and on vacation with my parents. In the pinball machine room at the Fontainebleau hotel in Miami Beach.

Indelible.

1969. I was in Kindergarten. Went to the school in the evening to see some kind of fair that the older grades were putting on.
One of the displays was a puppet show type of thing where the puppets were dancing to the tune Yellow Submarine.
The first serious earworm that I can recall.

I was on a cruise from LA to Japan. We were moving there for two years while my Navy dad pilot was stationed in Atsugi Japan. I was 9 or 10 and Abbey Road was just released. In the kid's room on the ship they kept playing that album over and over. To this day, Abbey Road has been my favorite album. I'm not sure what song I heard first.

Kind of guessing here but more than likely Love Me Do in probably 63/64?

My Dad was a partner in a business that made explosive charges for the oil well drilling industry. Their test area was naturally out in the country with nothing else around. My Dad would occasionally take me with him when he went out there to work. I was wandering around listening to my transistor radio and heard I Want To Hold Your Hand for the 1st time. This would have been late 1963 or early 1964.

"I Wanna Hold Your Hand"
I was sitting on my front porch swing in Pittsburgh, PA, listening to my transistor radio. I nagged and begged my parents to get that radio for me for about a year.

Wow, nearly identical experience with me.
I was in kindergarten and heard Yellow Submarine and I couldn't get it out of my head.

" I Want To Hold Your Hand ". I was hooked, begged my parents to buy me the FIRST Beatles album released in the U.S. July 1963 "Introducing The Beatles", on Vee Jay, we bought it a Sears in Buena Park, cal. for $4.95. A LOT of money then. I still have that album in mint condition, and all subsequent others.

If I remember correctly 45 rpm records were 99 cents each. I always tried to save a dollar so I could get the next record!

I think I was a school boy when I heard my first Beatles song. " Love Me Do" I think it was.

Like many typical Boomers, it was "I Want to Hold Your Hand" when it surged on the radio

My mum played The Beatles in the car a lot when I was a kid. I remember singing along to A Hard Day's Night when I was about four.
