When I’m Sixty-Four by The Beatles – ****

First released: 1967

I first heard this song not on "Sgt. Pepper" but rather the "Yellow Submarine" movie. In fact, in the earliest days of my Beatles collecting, this song was the only one I knew for sure before I purchased the album. I had forgotten that "Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds" and "Sgt. Pepper/With a Little Help From My Friends" were also in the film, such an effect those songs had. "Sixty-Four" is bouncy and is a great song to play for little kids if you’re trying to get them into The Beatles. It's also on 1999's "Yellow Submarine Songtrack".
