As if its a big deal Rihanna has passed the Beatles in spending more weeks at number one in the singles chart. 

Rihanna has overtaken The Beatles record for the total number of weeks spent at number one in the US.

The singer's latest hit Work has scored a ninth week at the top of the Billboard Hot 100, giving her an overall tally of 60 weeks at number one with 14 songs.

That's one more week at number one than The Beatles' overall total.

She is now second on the list of all-time chart toppers, behind Mariah Carey, whose record is 79 weeks.

I read this wrong and thought this made her have the most, she's second to Mariah. Even less of a story. a-hard-days-night-paul-3

However, some of the songs counted as a number one for Rihanna are actually collaborations with other artists...

Mariah Carey also has some collaborations counted among her 79-week total...

None of the singles by The Beatles to reach the chart summit featured other artists. 

a-hard-days-night-paul-11

 Tho technically 'Get Back ' featured Billy Preston.

At a recent Paul McCartney concert, he was able to meet the women who were in the Little Rock Nine. These same people inspired his song "Blackbird ." How amazing for all of them!!

Oh, I already knew the majority of Dutch people who buy music are dumb f*cks!

3fm had this ''Heavenly top100'' list of best albums of all time as voted for by the listeners and a lot of Beatles wasn't in there anymore, only Sgt. Pepper . Albums such as Pet Sounds had also left the list. Instead of that, shit like Justin Bieber, Ed Sheeran, Adele and Coldplay's latest album got in.

New/current acts being voted high up in polls is quite common. For a good few years Robbie Williams was voted as one of the best vocalists ever in UK music polls. blue-meanie

That's what my newsletter from The Beatles History Museum in Liverpool, says :  

"Intimate portraits of the late Beatle George Harrison and Eric Clapton by the woman who shared both their lives will go exclusively on display this spring at The Beatles Story, Liverpool.

Pattie Boyd’s ‘George, Eric and Me’ exhibition is a collection of candid photographs of the musical icons and their friends, such as The Rolling Stone’s Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood.

Pattie's personal collection will be on display to the public from May 6 until autumn 2016, giving a glimpse into the private lives of two of the most revered musicians of all time."

                                         

                                                 THAT'S AWESOME 🙂 I was just making plans about a trip to Liverpool ...

Anyone with a spare €1,395.

For an early solution to the Father's Day gift conundrum, The Raymond Weil maestro Beatles Limited Edition, now available in Ireland for the first time, is the perfect gift for the ageing-hippie father.

The Swiss luxury watchmaker unveiled the timepiece earlier this year to celebrate the company's 40th birthday. There are just 3,000 available, and features include the names of all 13 Beatles' studio albums on the dial, and the Beatles' logo decorated in sapphire crystal.

I don't know how much that is in American dollars, but I don't need to to know that I have more than one better use for that much money.

I'm Necko.  I'm like Ringo except I wear necklaces.

I'm also ewe2 on weekends.

It’s cool that all 12 LPs are on the watch (13 if you include the US MMT), but ya that Beatles logo could have been made much bigger!  Maybe they figured it would be too tacky! a-hard-days-night-ringo-15

Any chance you can make the watch go missing from his house and make it find its way to me?

Those three albums ('Beatles For Sale ' to 'Rubber Soul ) have been squashed together as there are normally 12 sections on the watch and they have used 13 albums. Its still a nice watch but it makes it look a little bit off and therefore I wont be paying out €1,395.

I presume the 8 is there as a nod for '8 Days A Week'.
