2 songs by John Lennon-Paul McCartney spent 29 weeks in the charts for a band that wasn’t the Beatles

John Lennon and Paul McCartney’s songwriting partnership produced hits for The Beatles. How good were they? One of their unreleased songs reached #1 when another band recorded it. So it’s no surprise that two Lennon McCartney songs spent 29 weeks on the chart for a different group.

The Fourmost spent 29 weeks on the charts with two songs by John Lennon and Paul McCartney

Even before they became synonymous with chart-topping, Paul and John weren’t afraid to give away songs they’d written to other artists. They had the Rolling Stones cover “I Wanna Be Your Man” before the Beatles recorded it. John and Paul abandoned the song That Means a Lot, turned it over to American singer PJ Proby, and he turned it into a modest success.
