The Beatles’ ‘Now and Then’ Makes the Top 10 in the US and UK
"Now and Then" was first worked on by the three surviving members of the band in the '90s and was initially intended to be included in the Anthology series, but never completed until recently. Earlier this month, the song and a short documentary film about its making was released.
At present, "Now and Then" sits at No. 1 on the U.K. singles chart — their 18th ever and first since 1969. In America, the song has made it to No. 7, making it their 35th No. 1 hit in the country and their first since 1995's "Free as a Bird," another track made using a tape of Lennon's.
