The 101 number one song of the day established five remarkable records that have never been broken and it is highly unlikely that they ever will be.
First of all – the record topped the greatest monopoly of Billboard Magazine’s top five: all five songs belonged to the same artist. Secondly, it established the greatest monopoly of the Top 100 with a total of ten singles on the charts at the same time. Third, the biggest leap to number one – from number 27. Fourth, Most consecutive number ones which at the time was three in a row. And finally, the Largest Advance Sale with orders of 2.1 million records.

Here are the Beatles with your 101 number one song of the day: “Can’t Buy Me Love”
