‘The Beatles’ were known to cause their audience to go into hysterics, screaming and yelling. Each performance saw the fans becoming more and more crazy for the four musicians.
In 1965, the band played London’s biggest pop music TV show ‘Ready, Steady, Go!’ The Beatles played their hit record ‘Can’t Buy Me Love,’ as the crowd screamed all around them.
The band formed a small semi-circle in the middle of the studio floor while their fans surrounded them on multiple levels of scaffolding. The girls’ squeals are constant while John and Paul sing.
They deliver the lyrics, “I’ll buy you a diamond ring, my friend, if it makes you feel alright. I’ll get you anything, my friend, if it makes you feel alright. ‘Cause I don’t care too much for money, ’cause money can’t buy me love.”
The Beatles wear black suits, white shirts, and black ties, sweating during their performance while bobbing their heads around to Ringo’s beat. They smile at each other and the audience the whole time, and the crowd claps along.
Paul McCartney and John Lennon share screen time as the camera zooms in on their faces. John lets out a guttural yell right before the guitar solo, and the crowd goes wild.
The black-and-white footage shows the audience jammed together in a small space to see their rock n’ roll heroes. The Beatles bow together at the song’s close after rocking out for their adoring fans.
