I Want to Hold Your Hand


by The Beatles


Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band (1967)

This transformative album changed the way in which people viewed rock; while songs like "Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds" and "A Day in the Life" are certainly single-worthy, this album had no singles--it was meant to be listened to beginning to end.

The Beatles (1968)

Commonly called The White Album, this quadruple-LP, or double-disc album is the group's magnum opus, rich with excellent songs like "Back in the U.S.S.R.," "Dear Prudence," "Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da," "Happiness Is a Warm Gun," and many many more.

The Beatles 1 (2000)

The Beatles dominated the charts during their time as a band, with more than two dozen songs that hit the top on either side of the Atlantic Ocean. Here they are, in one convenient compilation album.

With The Beatles (1963)

The UK release of the second Beatles album, which was released at the time that "I Want To Hold Your Hand" was released as a single, contains some of their earlier, more conservative, lovey-dovey rock 'n' roll numbers.
