This is a significant date in Beatles history.
 
Fifty years ago, on April 4, 1964, the Beatles had 12 songs on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, including the TOP FIVE POSTIONS!
 
Noone had ever come close to something like this, not even Elvis. It's a safe bet that this will never be achieved again.
 
The chart placings were as follows:
 
1: Can't Buy Me Love (Capitol)
2: Twist And Shout (Tollie)
3: She Loves You (Swan)
4: I Want To Hold Your Hand (Capitol)
5: Please Please Me (Vee Jay)
 
31: Saw Her Standing There (Capitol)
41: From Me To You (Vee Jay)
46: Do You Want To Know A Secret (Vee Jay)
58: All My Loving (Capitol)
65: You Can't Do That (Capitol)
68: Roll Over Beethoven (Capitol)
79: Thank You Girl (Vee Jay)
 
There were also two Beatles tribute records on the list: We Love You Beatles by The Carefrees at 42, and A Letter To The Beatles by The Four Preps at 85.
 
The following week two more Beatles singles entered the chart: There's A Place (at 74) and Love Me Do (81).
