In an amazing run of Beatles-related numbers ‘From Me To You’ knocked Gerry & The Pacemakers’ ‘How Do You Do It’ off the top of the charts – a song they turned down in favour of ‘Love Me Do’. (Gerry and the Pacemakers returned the favour two months later by knocking them off with ‘I Like It’.)

The entire set of 22 singles was augmented by one brand-new one (‘Yesterday’) and released on the same day, so at one point all 23 of them were in the top 100 at the same time – including six in the top fifty!
