7 Best-Selling Singles From The Beatles

7 Best-Selling Singles From The Beatles

On this day in 1967, "Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" was the No. 1 selling LP, just a few days removed from its May 26 debut and a day prior to the June 1 U.S. debut. And, to celebrate this 50-year milestone, Benzinga is dusting off the old LPs and revisiting the best of the Beatles.

Music is a cathartic experience, purging the body and soul. Among makers of music, no other band has been so successful in keeping music lovers across generations, races and nations hooked like the Beatles. The rock band that ruled the roost for about a decade between 1960 and 1970 was formed in Liverpool in 1960.

John Lennon, Sir Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr and John Harrison, nicknamed the Fab Four always had a frenzied following.
