Q. Whose single ‘Glad All Over’ knocked the Beatles’ ‘I Want to Hold Your Hand’ off the top of the UK charts in 1964?

A. The Dave Clark Five were an English rock and roll band formed in Tottenham in 1957. In January 1964 they had their first UK top ten single, “Glad All Over”, which knocked the Beatles’ “I Want to Hold Your Hand” off the top of the UK Singles Chart. It peaked at number 6 in the United States in April 1964. Although this was their only UK #1, they topped the US chart in December 1965, with their cover of Bobby Day’s “Over And Over”. Their version of Chet Powers’ “Get Together” reached number 8 on the UK Singles Chart retitled as “Everybody Get Together”.

They were the second group of the British Invasion to appear on The Ed Sullivan Show. They would ultimately have 18 appearances on the show. The group disbanded in late 1970. On 10 March 2008, the band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
