“I Feel Fine” was the song that sold me on the Beatles. The guitar feedback at the beginning was groundbreaking in 1964. When you add in the flip side “She’s A Woman,” which reached number four on the Billboard Hot 100, you have a spectacular single.
When “I Feel Fine” reached number one on December 26, 1964, it was their sixth chart topper. It spent three weeks in the number one position. The two sided hit single provided their 29th and 30th chart songs of the year.
“I Feel Fine” provided a fitting end to 1964 for the Beatles as no artist in the history of American music had enjoyed such a successful year, but the best was yet to come.
