The Beatles meet Elvis 8-27-65

On the evening of August 27, 1965 in Elvis Presley's Bel-Air mansion, the Beatles came a'calling. In the stories of that evening that I have read (such as from the UK Daily Mail, linked here) it sounds like it was less a meeting of minds than it was a cultural "generational gap." Like your older brother not approving of your musical tastes or something. Still, it is telling that The Beatles wanted to meet Elvis, who they considered one of the leading guiding lights in their musical paths.

In the spirit of having two musical legends get together, Friends of Justice hereby presents two super hits from 1965, one by each legendary act. I am unashamedly a fan of both.
