With storm trooper stomps and an irrepressibly upbeat chorus, "Glad All Over" became the first major British Invasion hit in the U.S. by a band other than the Beatles. It was also the song that knocked "I Want to Hold Your Hand" off the top of the British hit parade. "I was going through my record collection, and I saw the title 'Glad All Over,'" remembered Dave Clark Five singer Mike Smith. "I couldn't remember what the song was like, but I thought it was a great title. So I sat down at my dad's piano and wrote 'Glad All Over.'"
