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
