The Beatles' debut single 'Love Me Do' celebrates 50th anniversary
The Fab Four officially released the track on October 5, 1962 through Parlophone in the UK, alongside releases from James Brown and Matt Monro.
The track wasn't an instant hit and had a slow ascent up the chart, finally peaking at number 17 during the last week of December later that year, reports NME.
However, the track was the quiet before the storm as Beatlemania erupted the following year in 1963, which would see the Liverpool act go on to become one of the most successful bands of all time.
Two versions of 'Love Me Do' were recorded. The first has Ringo Starr on drums, while a second was made during a session with Andy White after Starr was relegated to tambourine following doubts about his ability.
The remaining Beatles will celebrate their 50-year career by releasing a newly-restored version of their 1967 film Magical Mystery Tour.
