On April 4, 1964, an incredible feat in music history occurred. A single
artist or group occupied the top 5 spots on Billboard's Hot 100 list for the
first time ever.
The top five that week starting at number one were "Can't Buy Me Love",
"Twist and Shout", "She Loves You", "I Want to Hold Your Hand" and "Please
Please Me". From February 22, 1964 straight through until April 25, The
Beatles owned at least the first 2 positions on the chart every week with
various singles.
