On this day in 1967, The Beatles recorded “I Am The Walrus” and “The Fool On The Hill.”
Speaking of the Fab Four, we roll all the way to this day in 1986, when “Twist and Shout” re-entered the singles chart more than 22 years after it first appeared. Two movies were out at the time that featured the song, “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” and Rodney Dangerfield’s “Back To School.”
On this day in 1990, Marvin Gaye was posthumously awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
And just last year, Bruce Springsteen published his autobiography, Born To Run. He started working on it after his performance at the Super Bowl in 2009.
Happy birthdays going out to Meat Loaf, Randy Bachman, Shawn Cassidy, Avril Lavigne and Lil’ Wayne, who on his 30th birthday, made chart history with his 109th appearance on the Billboard singles chart, making him the male with the most entries, surpassing Elvis Presley who had held the record with 108. Drake now owns that record with 154 appearances on the Billboard Hot 100.
