Chart Notes: The latest offering from the Beatles leapfrogs past all other tuneage on WPGC from #5 - #1 as 'Can't Buy Me Love' leads 'All My Loving', 'She Loves You' and 'Twist & Shout' in positions #2 - #4 respectively. 'I Want To Hold Your Hand' loses the crown at #1 after a month in that position but manages to hold on in the Top Ten at #10 and goes on to be the #1 song of the year on the WPGC Top 100 of 1964 while 'She Loves You' finishes the year at #2. Meanwhile, 'Please Please Me' and 'Till There Was You' fall out of the WPGC Top Ten this week.

Nevertheless, 'I Want To Hold Your Hand' holds on to #1 at WWDC, falls from #1 - #2 at WINX and falls from #7 - #9 on Milt Grant's Network.

'She Loves You' moves from #2 - #1 at WEAM, #3 - #1 at WHMC, debuts in the Top Ten at #8 at WINX, falls #2 - #5 on Milt Grant's Network and WWDC.

'Please Please Me' moves up from #4 - #2 at WEAM, debuts in the Top Ten at #3 at Milt Grant's Network, soars from #8 - #1 at WINX and falls from #5 - #6 at WWDC.

'Twist And Shout' climbs #4 - #1 at Milt Grant's Network, debuts in the Top Ten at #3 at WEAM, stays at #3 at WEEL, moves up #10 - #4 at WINX, and falls out of the Top Ten at WWDC.

'Can't Buy Me Love' explodes at WEEL where it jumps from 'Predicted Hit' status last week to the #1 spot this week, goes from a 'Predicted Hit' last week to #3 this week at WWDC, debuts in the Top Ten at #8 on Milt Grant's Network and enjoys a 'Predicted Hit' ranking at this week at WINX.

Not to be overshadowed by the sheer tonnage of other Beatles songs on the charts, 'I Saw Her Standing There' pole vaults #8 - #3 at WHMC while 'Do You Want To Know A Secret' debuts in the Top Ten at #3 at WEEL.

Riding the coattails of Beatlemania, the latest novelty record about them by the Four Lads, 'A Letter To The Beatles' debuts in the Top Ten at #9 at WHMC.
