Single cover[edit]

Where did the cover picture originate from? The original UK Parlophone release didn't have a picture cover. Is it the early 80s reissue? 217.155.20.163 20:40, 27 November 2006 (UTC)

According to the image description, US Vee-Jay single cover. 惑乱 分からん * \)/ (\ (< \) (2 /) /)/ * 23:33, 28 April 2007 (UTC)
That's exactly right. It's a 1964 American picture sleeve. If someone has the original 1963 red-label Parlophone 45 label with the centre push-out intact, that would be the best thing to use in the infobox. If so, don't delete the picture sleeve, because it can be used elsewhere in the article. Cheemo 01:25, 25 May 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Beattles.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Beattles.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

I expanded the rationale. Disputing this image in this article is ridiculous. Editorial: The fair-use police are hopelessly out of control and make Wikipedia worse, not better. John Cardinal 03:06, 6 September 2007 (UTC)
I added the formal fair use rationale box. Feel free to add to it. Steelbeard1 03:28, 6 September 2007 (UTC)
Great. I thought that would be necessary but I also figured that expanding the rationale would be enough to get rid of the disputed tag and thus save the image from imminent deletion. The combination should should really put this issue to bed, but we'll see I guess. John Cardinal 12:42, 6 September 2007 (UTC)

Reverted Beatles Bible Website.[edit]

The author of this site uses most of the published stuff that we (Wikipedia editors) all use, or could get access to. Rather than use third party citations, which is what happens when citing this website, we should actually get as close to a verifiable source as possible, (ie page numbers etc) and use that instead. --Patthedog (talk) 13:20, 30 October 2008 (UTC)

¿Anthology 1 is Wrong?[edit]

It's wrong that the single reached No. 1 even when anthology says that it did it? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 189.183.33.94 (talk) 03:28, 18 June 2009 (UTC)

1982 re-release[edit]

Why isn't this mentioned? DavidFarmbrough (talk) 06:15, 14 September 2009 (UTC)

"first real oral sex pop song"[edit]

What does the following, uncited passage actually mean? Until this is clearer and sourced, it should stay out

"Please Please Me" is cited as the "first real oral sex pop song" in Tim Riley's 1999 book about The Beatles' discography. He credits two Beatles-era writers for the first such observation, Robert Christgau and John Piccarella. Riley also notes the lyric's (call and responses) "c'mon, c'mon," and points out the song "closes the side [of the album] ignoring the conventional practice of putting the hit up front, and fleshing out the album with weaker material."[citation needed]"

Beatles "The/the" Issue Mediation Input Request[edit]

The Beatles. Please, Please Me single image. NOT '1963 issue' as stated.[edit]

Hi Guys

The image shown is not a 1963 issue copy of Please, Please Me as stated.

The 'diamond' sleeve is a correct 1st issue. However, the image of the vinyl label shows this is likely to be a 1982 press from the reissue blue and gold box set.

This 1982 press came with a picture sleeve.
