1964: "I want to hold your hand" by The Beatles was # 1 this week



Beatlemania offically began with "I want to hold your hand" jumping to # 1 on Billboard.    

A week later, The Beatles landed in New York for The Ed Sullivan Show.  To say the least, pop music would never be the same!

In the US, the B-side was "I saw her standing there", a song from the first LP in the UK.    In the UK, it was "This boy", a song featured on "Meet The Beatles", the first US LP.

"I want to hold your hand" was # 1 for seven weeks.   It was one of the best selling singles of the pop era.    And it is also now available in a digital format.
