When Sgt. Peppers was released in 1967, the album started with the magical words "it was 20 year ago today". Well now we are 50 years later and the Beatles are still going strong on the radio, television, and every now and then even in the charts. So welcome to "It was 50 years ago today" where we will publish every day a news item about what happened that day in Beatles History...only 50 years later!

Anna (Go To Him)
The third song on the debut album of the Beatles (Please Please Me) was a cover of Anna (Go To Him), a soul number by Arthur Alexander and a favourite of John Lennon, who sings lead.
Funnily, the song is called Go TO him, but in the lyrics it is clearly Go WITH Him.
