It was on this day in 1963 that Paul Simon graduated from Queens College in New York City.
We jump to the next year (1964) when the governor of Indiana declared the record “Louie Louie” by the Kingsmen was pornographic. After extensive study, the FBI concluded that the lyrics of this version of the song are so garbled, they are unintelligible.
One of my all time favorite songs was recorded on this day in 1966. The Young Rascals recorded “Good Lovin.'”
On this day in 1968, exactly nine months after their wedding, Elvis and Priscilla Presley became the parents of their only child, Lisa Marie.
It was on this day in 1976 that The Eagles released the album “Greatest Hits, 1971-1975.” It stands as the second best selling album in U.S. history behind “Thriller.”
Speaking of The Eagles, we jump to this day in 1985. Glenn Frey appeared on an episode of “Miami Vice.”
I love Super Bowl week. It was on this day in 2009, at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida. Journey performed during the pre-game show, Faith Hill sang “America The Beautiful,” Jennifer Hudson sang the National Anthem and Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band provided the halftime entertainment at Super Bowl XLIII. The Steelers beat Cardinals, 27-23.
