Let’s get this edition of Today in Music History cooking in 1964. The Beatles spent the afternoon recording “Eight Days A Week.” Later that night they hit The Ad Lib Club in London and hung out with The Ronettes and Mick Jagger. More on Jagger later.
It was on this day the very next year (1965,) that The Supremes, released “I Hear a Symphony,” which became their sixth #1 single on the Billboard Hot 100 in 15 months.
Now more on Mick. It was on this day in 1978, that Jesse Jackson meets with Mick Jagger to express his displeasure with some of the lyrics in the song “Some Girls.” Mick said he was sorry, but did not change the lyrics to the song. When they do the song live, they skip the line in question and jam for a second.
On this day in 1988 “Don’t Worry Be Happy” by Bobby McFerrin was the #1 song.
Faith Hill and Tim McGraw got married on this day in 1996. It was his first marriage, her second. They have three daughters.
And let’s wrap it up with the cast of Glee. On this day in 2010, they surpassed the Beatles for most appearances on the Billboard Hot 100 by a non-solo act, placing 75 songs to the Beatles’ 71. Yes, that is not a typo, the cast of Glee beat The Beatles.
