And when I touch you I feel happy inside
The Stones are the far sexier band, and even the better rockers. But there's something about watching the Beatles --- they are completely into it. They're not posing, not acting cool. They're -- Paul especially, and George -- just as spastically excited as the fans are.
I think when the Stones came on US TV a couple of months later, they taught viewers how to sit back and OBSERVE: Watch the cool guys pose, etc. Whereas the Beatles gave middle-class kids permission to be loose and crazy, because the band was just as unpretentious as the kid viewers were.
