1964: "Dawn (Go Away)" by The Four Seasons hits No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100, where it would remain for three weeks trailing two Beatles songs, "I Want to Hold Your Hand" and "She Loves You." The song was gradually bumped by more Beatles songs until the Fab Four held all of the top five spots on April 4, 1964.
