Can’t Buy Me Love By The Beatles

December 4, 2014


The Beatles had ruled the American music world for nine straight weeks. What could they possibly do for an encore? The answer was a third number one hit in a row.

“Can’t Buy Me Love” became the number one song in the United States, April 4, 1964, and would remain in that position for five weeks but that was only the tip of the iceberg.

On December 9, 1956, Elvis Presley set a record with nine singles on the BILLBOARD Hot 100. The Beatles smashed that record on April 11, 1964, when 14 of their singles occupied positions in the Hot 100.

1) Can’t Buy Me Love

2) Twist and Shout

4) She Loves You

7) I Want To Hold Your Hand

9) Please Please Me

14) Do You Want To Know A Secret

38) I Saw Her Standing There

48) You Can’t Do That

50) All My Loving

52) From Me To You

61) Thank You Girl

74) There’s A Place

78) Roll Over Beethoven

81) Love Me Do

And so it was with Beatlemania in 1964.
