Running continuously throughout the day today ... with updates every hour on the hour ... we will be counting down The Top 200 #1 Records of The Beatles Era, 1964 - 1970.
Be sure to check back throughout the day to see where YOUR favorites fall on the list.
(Statistics are based on the results of the major music trade publications for this era ... and, because points have been accumulated based on the total performance of a given record in all three publications, you may find some very surprising results along the way.)
Enjoy ... and check back often!

As much as this song was played ... and is STILL played ... it's almost unthinkable that it never "officially" made it to #1.
In fact, NONE of these first ten records reached #1 in Billboard Magazine ... but they're ALL #1 Records in our book!
