Kramer & the Dakotas tune, "From a Window," although it appears on the printed list. The album cuts are from the LPs "Something New," (the first two on the album list), "Meet the Beatles," "A Hard Day's Night," and the UK version of "A Hard Day's Night," respectively. The proliferation of Beatles songs, which seemingly reached a high point with this survey, gives rise to speculation as to how these extra songs were selected. There does not seem to be any logical sequence; the most likely theory postulated is that several songs were randomly rotated from the great amount of material available from the group. (This would best explain the appearance this week of "Till There Was You," from the Beatles' first charted U.S. album, "Meet the Beatles.") The appearance this week of singles "A Hard Day's Night" and "And I Love Her," which had recently fallen off the survey, further advances this theory. Finally, it is worth noting that despite the flurry of activity in Beatles songs on this week's playlist, this is the first survey in 39 weeks (since January) that the Beatles do not have a Top 20 record.
