Why I am still in awe of The Beatles

The Beatles are the only artists to hold all of the Top Five spots on the Billboard charts at once.

During the week of April 4, 1964, The Beatles held twelve positions on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart, including the top five positions. Neither feat has been been matched by any artist to date.

Since you’re surely wondering, here are those 12 singles and their chart positions that week:

  1. Can’t Buy Me Love” (1)
  2. Twist And Shout” (2)
  3. She Loves You” (3)
  4. I Want To Hold Your Hand” (4)
  5. Please Please Me” (5)
  6. I Saw Her Standing There” (31)
  7. From Me To You” (41)
  8. Do You Want To Know A Secret” (46)
  9. All My Loving” (58)
  10. You Can’t Do That” (65)
  11. Roll Over Beethoven” (68)
  12. Thank You Girl” (79)

The following week, two additional songs made the chart (“Love Me Do” and “There’s A Place“), giving The Beatles FOURTEEN singles in the Hot 100! They also held the top two slots on the album charts that week.
