Sunday evening tunes: I think you'll understand

On this date, fifty-one years ago, the Fab Four released a little ditty in the UK. It had one million pre-release orders, a record.

The following spring they made their American debut on The Ed Sullivan Show, and before long a generation of parents who had danced to "Mairzy Doats" found themselves watching their children singing "Yeah, yeah, yeah!" and knew their young minds were being turned irretrievably to crap.
