Chart Notes: The Beatles command an astonishing feat, capturing all six of the top six positions on WPGC's Top Ten with 'Can't Buy Me Love' bumping 'Till There Was You' at #5, and joins 'I Want To Hold Your Hand', 'She Loves You', 'Please, Please Me' (those three songs would go on to end the year as the #1, #2 & #4 songs on the WPGC Top 100 of 1964) and 'All My Lovin' locked in place for a month at #1 - #4 respectively, while 'Twist And Shout' moves from #7 - #6. Ironically, the #7 song is Elvis', 'It Hurts Me', no doubt an apt title in light of the Fab Four's complete dominance of the charts!

'I Want To Hold Your Hand' still clings to the #1 perch at WEAM, WWDC and WHMC, leaps from #10 - #1 at WINX, remains at #7 on Milt Grant's Network and finally falls out of the Top Ten at WEEL.

'She Loves You' remains on top of the charts at WEEL and Milt Grant's Network, stays at #2 at WEAM and WWDC, falls from #2 - #3 at WHMC and falls out of the Top Ten at #4 at WINX.

'Please Please Me' remains at #4 at WEAM, drops from #3 - #5 at WWDC, debuts in the Top Ten at #8 at WINX and falls out of the Top Ten on Milt Grant's Network.

'Twist And Shout' enjoys upward chart movement from #7 - #4 on Milt Grant's Network, jumps from #7 - #3 at WEEL and debuts in the Top Ten at #10 on WHMC.

And the latest offering from John, Paul, George & Ringo, 'Can't Buy Me Love' is this week's 'Predicted Hit' at both WEEL and WWDC.

Other Beatles' tuneage heard in Washington includes, 'I Saw Her Standing There', which falls from #7 - #8 at WHMC.

Meanwhile, the latest novelty record about the Beatles by the Four Lads, appropriately called, 'A Letter To The Beatles' is this week's 'Predicted Hit' at WINX.

Following on their coattails, the Searchers, ''Needles & Pins' jumps from #8 - #3 on Milt Grant's Network, debuts in the Top Ten at #8 on WEEL, #9 at WPGC, #10 at WWDC and WHMC while the Dave Clark Five's, 'Glad All Over' ascends from #5 to #2 at WEEL and remains at #10 on Milt Grant's Network.
