The Beatles managed it on February 22, 1964, when 'I Want to Hold Your Hand' held its number one position and 'She Loves You' rose one spot to two following the band's famous appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show earlier that month.


Those singles held the top two between them for six weeks, and on April 4 The Beatles recorded all top five singles in the Hot 100.

'Can't Buy Me Love' topped the chart, followed by 'Twist and Shout', with 'She Loves You' dropping to third, 'I Want to Hold Your Hand' at four and 'Please Please Me' at 5.
