While the 1950s belonged to Elvis, the 60s just as surely danced to the Beatles` tunes. The Fab Four have six out of the these 30 top sellers, including the number one I Want To Hold Your Hand, which sold 5 million copies in the USA alone. Considering that the 60s are remembered as the decade in which British artists conquered America, it`s perhaps a little surprising that apart from the Beatles` discs, the only British record showing here is Lulu`s To Sir With Love.

apple sauce:
It's easy to see that other than the Beatles no other froup had a strangle hold on the 60s!
