Beatlemania is a term that originated during the 1960s to describe the intense fan frenzy directed toward British rock and roll band “The Beatles.”

The Beatles live and televised performances before audiences consisting mainly of teenage girls, brought a kind of hysteria from the girls that was made up of screams, shouting and often, fainting.

Tomorrow marks the 50th anniversary of the band’s American debut on the very popular variety program, “The Ed Sullivan Show.” Wow, 50 years ago. Gee, how time flies.

So pick your favorite Beatles songs and/or Beatles cover songs by various bands. Oh, and a shout out to Beatlex for coming up with the idea of a Beatles thread. Don’t forget to smile while posting. 😉
