    Summary quotation from Wikipedia: “I Want to Hold Your Hand” is a song by the English rock band The Beatles. Written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney, and recorded in October 1963, it was the first Beatles record to be made using four-track equipment.
    “I Want to Hold Your Hand” was the band’s first number-one hit on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, starting the British Invasion of the American music charts. The song entered the chart on 18 January 1964 at number 45; by 1 February, it held the number one spot — for seven weeks — and ended up charting for 15 weeks. It also held the top spot in the British charts.
