In early April 1964, the Beatles dominated the Billboard Hot 100 record chart in a way that will almost certainly never be equaled. The group held down the top five positions and had seven other songs on the chart. Today’s question covers this remarkable achievement.

What were the five Beatles songs that held the top five positions in the Billboard Hot 100 record chart for the week ending April 4, 1964?

Bonus: Name the songs in their proper order and name as many of the other seven Beatles songs that appeared on the same chart as you can.

The top five songs were, in order, “Can’t Buy Me Love” (in its second week on the chart and first of five weeks at number one), “Twist And Shout” (the only song in the top five not written by Lennon-McCartney), “She Loves You” (which had held down the top spot for the previous two weeks), “I Want To Hold Your Hand” (which had topped the charts for seven weeks) and “Please Please Me” (which peaked at number three unable to break through the log-jam of Beatles songs above it).

The other seven songs were “I Saw Her Standing There” (#31), “From Me To You (#41), “Do You Want To Know A Secret” (#46 in its second week before climbing to #2 six weeks later), “All My Loving” (#58 as a Canadian import single), “You Can’t Do That” (#65), Roll Over Beethoven” (#68 as a Canadian import single) and “Thank You Girl (#79).
