Needles and Pins

Needles and Pins by The Searchers was a UK number 1 hit on Thursday, January 30, 1964 spending 3 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. The Searchers heard British performer Cliff Bennett sing this at the Star-Club in Hamburg, Germany (where The Beatles played for a while), and wanted it to be their next single. Two 6-string guitars are playing in unison on the intro - it sounds like a 12-string guitar because an engineer accidentally left the echo switch on but liked the result.
