We've got a couple of flip-side debuts this week, too, as "I Am The Walrus" by The Beatles (B-Side to "Hello Goodbye") premiers at #94. (This track will be featured as part of the soundtrack to their new television special "Magical Mystery Tour".) And "I'm In Love", the flip-side of Wilson Pickett's #18 Hit "Stag-O-Lee" premiers at #99. The Hollies debut at #96 with "Dear Eloise" and there's a brand new Doors single coming in at #100 ("Love Me Two Times").
The Beatles record their fifth Fan Club Christmas Single at EMI Studio Three in London. It is the last one they will record together as a group. (1968 and 1969 Christmas singles were issued but all of the tracks were recorded separately by each Beatle and then edited together for final distribution.)
