Top Songs of 1964; #4

beatles-she-loves-youAfter a month and half a new song was to knock the Beatles, “I Want to Hold Your Hand” off the top of the music charts. But it was another Beatles song; “She Loves You.” It had been released on 16 September 1963 in the US but didn’t have any initial success until Beatlemania took hold. It helped make the song more popular by having the Beatles play it on the first two of their three appearances on the Ed Sullivan Show in Feb. 1964.

She Loves You” would only stay on the top of both the Cash Box and Billboard Hot 100 charts for only two weeks (March 15 – 28) to be knocked off by another Beatles song.

The Beatles have an Official website that also includes a link to download songs from iTunes. (Beatles songs can not be downloaded from Amazon.)
