SMALL WORLD—Music makes the world go ’round! To prove it, we kind of stopped the world one day to see what was happening around it! And here’s what we discovered: On the day that THE BEATLES’ record of “Hello, Goodbye” was number one in the U.S. and Britain, it was also the top record in Denmark, Holland, Norway, and New Zealand! It was number 3 in Germany and Spain, number 6 in France and number 15 in Italy! Maybe the UN ought to stop talking and start singing!
