Written 'to order' as a Beatles single, John Lennon and Paul McCartney wrote 'From Me To You' after deciding they needed to get the words 'me' and 'you' into their song titles to appeal directly to fans. But when this song, initially destined to be the B side, turned out so well, it HAD to be put on the A side of their third single. Released on 11th April 1963, it stormed the UK 's Top 20s, including, this time around, the obscure Record Retailer Chart which had placed their previous 45 only at number 2. This time, there would be no doubt- The Beatles had arrived- but would they be here to stay?
