During the week of April 4, 1964, The Beatles held twelve positions on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart, including the top five positions.
“Can’t Buy Me Love” (1)
“Twist and Shout” (2)
“She Loves You” (3)
“I Want to Hold Your Hand” (4)
“Please Please Me” (5)
“I Saw Her Standing There” (31)
“From Me to You” (41)
“Do You Want to Know a Secret” (46)
“All My Loving” (58)
“You Can’t Do That” (65)
“Roll Over Beethoven” (68)
“Thank You Girl” (79)
Four of these hits were #1 in the UK and released a year earlier in the United States (Love Me Do, Please Please Me, From Me To You, She Loves You) and all failed to chart at all.
