In the first two weeks of 1965 the number one hit in the USA was “I Feel Fine” by The Beatles. Like every other pre-teen girl in America I was in love with the Fab Four.
I had Beatle sneakers and a Beatle purse and went to all of the Beatle movies. Most girls I knew loved Paul, the cute one, but I loved John and his performing stance that I thought was uber-sexy
The Beatles’ quirky sense of humour (as seen in the video clip above), long hair and pointy toed boots with heels (Beatle Boots) were just so scandalous! I was hooked. Weren’t you?
