On 8 February 1963, NME published number 839.

In it was the good news that The Beatles entered the top 5 for the first time (but definitely not for the last time)

Top Thirty
 1.  "Diamonds," Jet Harris/Tony Meehan (Decca) [#1 last week]
 2.  "The Wayward Wind," Frank Ifield (Columbia) [#8 last week]
 3.  "Globetrotter," Tornados (Decca) [#2 last week]
 4.  "Little Town Flirt," Del Shannon (London) [#7 last week]
 5.  "Please Please Me," The Beatles (Parlophone) [#17 last week]
 6.  "Bachelor Boy," Cliff Richard (Columbia) [#4 last week]
 7.  "Loop De Loop," Frankie Vaughan (Philips) [#19 last week]
 8.  "Don't You Think It's Time," Mike Berry (HMV) [#6 last week]
 9.  "Dance On," Shadows (Columbia) [#3 last week]
 10.  "Like I Do," Maureen Evans (Oriole) [#5 last week]
There was also an article called "Beatles Head Package Show". If anybody has a copy of it, we here at It Was 50 Years Ago would love to read it.
