February Ends With A “Stop!” (2/27/65)

This full-page ad ran in the February 27, 1965 issue of Billboard, predicting that then-current Supremes single “Stop! In The Name Of Love” would become the group’s 4th consecutive #1 hit.  Exactly one month later, that prediction came true, as the song ascended to the top spot and knocked “Eight Days A Week” by The Beatles from the throne.

And here’s a fascinating tidbit — also in the March 27, 1965 issue of Billboard, as The Supremes notched a fourth #1 hit, the group was listed as having a top 10 hit single in Malaysia.  The song?  Not “Stop! In The Name Of Love.”  Incredibly, “A World Without Love” (from A Bit Of Liverpool) sat at #7 on the chart!
