USA vinyl single Something b/w Come Together

‘Something’ USA single – front cover
Front cover
  • Label: Apple 2654 STEREO
  • Released: 6th October 1969
  • Sales figures: after 5 weeks – 1 ½ million; to date – over 2 million; Certified Gold – 27th October 1969; Certified Platinum – 17th February 1999
  • Peak position:
    Billboard – #1;
    Cashbox – #1;
    Record World – #2
  • Weeks at No.1: 1 – from 29th November 1969
  • Weeks in chart: 16 – from 18th October 1969

This one took an eternity to reach the top because ‘Come Together’ was draining off ‘Something’s’ sales. (Record World actually listed ‘Come Together’ as the bigger-selling side.) But just as it was looking like it would never make it, fate intervened. On the 29th November 1969 Billboard decided to stop issuing a separate chart for the B-sides and began combining all of the sales towards the total. This pushed it past the opposition and it sailed to the summit.
