“I Saw Her Standing There” is a song that has grown on me down through the years. It was the B side of the first Beatles hit in the United States. “I Want To Hold Your Hand” topped the American singles charts for seven weeks during early 1964. “I Saw Her Standing There” reached number 14 as it became a hit in its own right.
Propelled by John Lennon’s lead vocal, It was one of the better rock songs of the Beatles early period.
When all was said and done, it remains one of the better listens in their impressive catalogue.

“My Sweet Lord” was George Harrison’s coming out party. He had trouble getting his songs onto Beatles albums due to the Lennon and McCartney juggernaut. It seems as if he had all these songs salted away and they were released on ALL THINGS MUST PASS. That album would become a standard of its era as it topped the American charts for seven weeks.
“My Sweet Lord” was the lead single from the album and remains the biggest hit of his career as it topped The American singles charts for four weeks. It may have been spiritual in content but remains instantly recognizable.
