Today in Music History starts on this day in 1964, when the entire Top 5 of the Billboard Top 100 was occupied with Beatles’s songs. (#5) “Please Please Me,” (#4) “I Want To Hold Your Hand,” (#3) “She Loves You,” (#2) “Twist And Shout,” and (#1) “Can’t Buy Me Love.”
It was 6:01 pm on this day in 1968, the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was shot on the balcony of the Lorraine Motel in Memphis. King was pronounced dead at St. Joseph’s Hospital at 7:05 p.m. at the age of 39. U2’s song “Pride (In The Name Of Love)” has become synonymous with that day.
If you want to get tingles all over your body, I say listen to “An American Trilogy,” by Elvis. It was released on this day in 1972.
Pink Floyd released their 14th and last studio album in North America, “The Division Bell,” on this day in 1994.
On this day in 2000, Pink released her debut album, “Can’t Take Me Home.”
And it was on this day in 2008 that a true power couple was born. It’s the day Beyoncé married Jay-Z. Their combined wealth reaches well over 1 Billion dollars, making them one of the richest couples on the planet.
