ABC Wednesday - Round 10 - H is for ...

An easy one to pick this week. Came into my mind almost instantly.
How could I not share one of my favourite songs from my favourite band.
So here it is ... first on my list this week:

I Want To Hold Your Hand - The Beatles

Written by Lennon and McCartney, I want to hold your hand became the Beatles best selling single worldwide.
It was also recorded by them in German entitled Komm, Gib Mir Deine Hand.

I love this song and I posted this song on my birthday last year - check it out at Music Monday - My Song

Youtube - I want to hold your hand

Hold Me Tight - The Beatles

Written by Paul McCartney.  Apparently neither Paul nor John Lennon liked this song. Paul called it a "work" song that he barely remembers and it became just an album filler.
John and Paul may not have liked it, but I do so here it is.

Youtube - Hold me tight

Hold me Thrill me Kiss me - Mel Carter

Written by Harry Noble in 1952 and originally sung by Karen Chandler.
But it was made popular by Mel Carter in 1965 when his version reached no 8 on the Billboard Hot100 and no 1 on the Easy Listening chart.
This song always takes me back to my teenage years.

 Youtube - Hold me Thrill me Kiss me

Also check out Gloria Estefan's version here on Youtube

Warm Regards
