Throwback Thursday: 50-plus Years of Beatlemania

As of 2015, the Beatles continue to hold the record for most number one hits on the Hot 100 chart with 20, and they continue to be the best-selling band in history with estimated sales of more than 600 million records worldwide.  Below is a scene from 2014 as a throng of Beatle fans turned out at John F. Kennedy International Airport to help the Port Authority place a marker inside the historic TWA Flight Center to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Beatles arrival to the United States.

On this day, 50 years ago, the Fab Four released their 10th single “Help” in the UK.  The record spent three weeks at number 1 and 14 weeks on the charts.
