We have some stellar releases Today in Music History.
Let’s start in 1964, when The Righteous Brothers released the single “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin.'” At that time, it was the longest song to ever hit No.1 at 3:45.
Steven Stills gave us his classsic “Love The One You’re With,” on this day in 1970. David Crosby and Graham Nash appear on the song singing back-round vocals.
Speaking of classics, let’s roll to 1976, when Bob Seger released the song “Night Moves.” It reached #4 on the Billboard Hot 100 and was named song of the year by Rolling Stone Magazine for 1977.
Here’s a crazy music fact for you. It was on this day in 1981, The Human League had their only UK No.1 single with “Don’t You Want Me.” It was also the biggest seller of 1981 in the UK, but the singer Phil Oakey disliked the song so much that it was placed as the last song on their album Dare. Usually, the big songs from a record are first or second.
On this day in 1986 “Walk Like An Egyptian” by the Bangles was the #1 song. The song sold over a million copies and was the #1 song of 1987.
Whitney Houston started a twenty-week run at No.1, on this day in 1992, with the soundtrack to the movie “The Bodyguard.” It has sold over 44 million copies worldwide, making it the best-selling soundtrack album of all time. “Saturday Night Fever” is second and Prince’s “Purple Rain” is third.
And finally, it was on this day in 2007, that Tina’s ex-hubby Ike died of a cocaine overdose at age 76. Ike and Tina were inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame in 1991.
