Come on! Come on! Come on! Come on!

They made better records, but The Beatles' enthusiastic debut still sounds flushed with energy. That's why I choose "Please Please Me" as my Saturday night record.
The kicks off with "I Saw Her Standing There," an adrenaline-rush of an opener, and closes with their version of "Twist and Shout," providing a certain template for punk rock. In between, this record provides some early originals and some of the band's favorite covers, all done in a rockin' style they honed through almost constant gigging. This disc is just about perfect for a Saturday night!
