Today in Music History kicks off in 1965, with Smokey and the Miracles, releasing the song “The Tracks Of My Tears.”
B.W. Stevenson recorded “My Maria,” on this day in 1973. His first name was actually Louis, but he used the initials B.W., which stood for Buck Wheat.
On this day in 1977, Keith Moon, from The Who joined Led Zeppelin onstage in Los Angeles for spirited renditions of “Rock And Roll” and “Moby Dick.”
The Knack released “My Sharona,” on this day in 1979. The song spent 6 weeks at #1 and was the number 1 song for 1979. The “Sharona” that inspired the song is a lady named Sharona Alperin, who sells real estate in the L.A. area.
We “jump” to this day in 1984, when Van Halen released “Panama.”
And in 1984, Duran Duran started a two week run at No.1 with ‘The Reflex’, the group’s first U.S. number 1. They would hit number one again with “A View To A Kill” a year later.
