    YOU REGULAR READERS OF PDX RETRO KNOW I LOVE MY “MUSICAL STATISTICS” SO HERE’S ONE FOR YOU! ALTHOUGH THIS IS CASHBOX SURVEY RELATED, BILLBOARD, GENERLY ACCEPTED AS THE CHART AUTHORITY IN POP MUSIC HAD THE BEATLES’ “CAN’T BUY ME LOVE” AT #1 ON THIS DATE WITH “TWIST AND SHOUT CHECKING IN AT #2
    AND ACTUALLY NEVER HITTING THE #1 SPOT IN BILLBOARD’S SURVEY! ANOTHER LITTLE TIDBIT,
    “CAN’T BUY ME LOVE” HIT #1 IN ONLY THEIR SECOND WEEK ON THE HOT 100, HAVING DEBUTED THE WEEK BEFORE AT #27! HOW BOUT’ THEM “APPLES”? NO WAIT, THEY DID’NT BECOME
    “APPLES” UNTILL 1968! FINALLY, THE BEATLES HELD DOWN THE #1 SPOT FOR 19 WEEKS IN 1964!
