A flashback to April 4, 1964, when The Beatles set a Hot 100 record by monopolizing the entire top five. Morrell shares stories & folk-pop duo the Well Pennies perform.
Welcome to the Billboard Chart Beat Podcast, where each week co-hosts Gary Trust and Trevor Anderson, from the Billboard charts department, discuss why what's on the charts … is on the charts, while also looking at current chart action in a historical context for even greater insights.
This week, we celebrate The Beatles, who made Billboard Hot 100 history on April 4, 1964, by charting the entire top five, a feat still unmatched by any other act 54 years later. Leading the list that week: "Can't Buy Me Love," which blasted 27-1 (the chart's biggest vault to No. 1 until 2002).
Two guests join the podcast, led by folk-pop duo The Well Pennies, who perform their cover of The Beatles' classic "All My Loving," as well as original song "Ooh La La."
