Music Blast from the Past!
|1959, Buddy Holly was at No.1 on the UK singles chart with the Paul Anka song 'It Doesn't Matter Anymore.' A No.1 hit six weeks after Holly's death.|
|1968, Louis Armstrong was at No.1 in the UK with the single 'What A Wonderful World / Cabaret.' At 69 years of age, it made Armstrong the oldest act ever to score a UK No.1.|
|1976, Paul and Linda McCartney spent the evening with John Lennon at his New York Dakota apartment and watched Saturday Night Live on TV. Producer of the show Lorne Michaels made an offer on air asking The Beatles to turn up and play three songs live. Lennon and McCartney thought about taking a cab to the studio, but decided they were too tired. This was the last time Lennon and McCartney were together.|
|1981, New Order started work on their first album at Strawberry studios in Stockport, England.|
|1995, Oasis released 'Some Might Say' which went on to give the band their first UK No.1 single. The planned promo video for the song was cancelled due to Liam not turning up for the shoot. Instead, a makeshift video was created using footage from the 'Cigarettes & Alcohol', US 'Supersonic' and UK 'Whatever' videos.|
|2003, Dixie Chicks launched a publicity campaign to explain their position after the controversy of Natalie Maines' statement regading the Iraq war. During a prime-time interview with TV personality Diane Sawyer, Maines said she remained proud of her original statement. The band also appeared naked (with private parts strategically covered) on the current cover of Entertainment Weekly magazine, with slogans such as "Traitors", "Saddam's Angels", "Dixie Sluts", "Proud Americans", "Hero", "Free Speech", and "Brave" printed on their bodies. The slogans represented the labels (both positive and negative) that had been placed on them in the aftermath of Maines' statement.|
|2005, US singer Akon went to No.1 on the UK album chart with 'Trouble'. Mariah Carey was at No.1 on the US album chart with 'The Emancipation of Mimi.'|
1997, The Verve scored their first and only UK No.1 single with 'The Drugs Don't Work', taken from their third album, Urban Hymns. The track became the band's most successful single in the United Kingdom. - See more at: http://www.thisdayinmusic.com/#sthash.uQx2Mmoi.dpuf
