OK, I've always like this song, more so than "100 Pounds of Clay", which is why it's been stuck in my head the past few days after hearing it played on SIRIUS/XM's the 50's on 5. But this song was released in 1962, you incorrigible chartsters cry out.
Yeah, but musically, according to all forms of radio, the 50s started in 1955 and continued into early 1964, when the Beatles debuted at #45 (National Breakout!) with "I Want to Hold Your Hand". (Chart shown below.)
Less than 3 months laters, they owned the top 5 spots, a unique feat in Hot 100 chart history.
1. Can't Buy Me Love
2. Twist and Shout
3. She Loves You
4. I Want to Hold Your Hand
5. Please Please Me
