I FEEL FINE ~ THE BEATLES
"I Feel Fine" is a riff-driven rock song written by John Lennon (credited to Lennon–McCartney) and released in 1964 by The Beatles as the A-side of their eighth British single. The song is notable for the use of feedback on a recording for the first time by any musician. The single reached the top of the British charts on 12 December of that year, displacing The Rolling Stones' "Little Red Rooster," and remained there for five weeks. It also reached the top of the Billboard Hot 100 in late 1964. The B-side was "She's a Woman"."I Feel Fine" was the first of six number one songs in a row on the American charts, a record at the time. The subsequent singles were "Eight Days a Week", "Ticket to Ride", "Help!", "Yesterday", and "We Can Work It Out". The record was equalled by The Bee Gees in 1979 and surpassed by Whitney Houston in 1988.
