The 101 number one song of the day was recorded by a quintet that appeared to have toppled the Fab Four from their perch as the world’s supergroup.
They rode to American shores on the crest of the wave that brought the Beatles crashing onto our charts. Their timing was impeccable. One of their songs toppled “I Want to Hold Your Hand” from number one in England and they were quickly hailed as the new British Supergroup. The song you’re about to hear didn’t fare as well over there – it peaked at number 45 but over here it was number one on December 26th, 1965 and it became the only number one song in the states for the Dave Clark Five – “Over and Over”
