1975: The Eagles release "One Of These Nights", which will become the second of their five US number one singles. It reached #23 in the UK. The B-side, "Visions", features lead vocals by guitarist Don Felder, the only Eagles song to do so.
1970: Ray Stevens achieved the first of his two Billboard number one hits when "Everything Is Beautiful" reached the top. His second came almost exactly four years later with "The Streak".
1982: Paul McCartney started a three week run at #1 on the Billboard album chart with "Tug Of War". With contributions from Stevie Wonder, George Martin, Carl Perkins and Ringo Starr, the LP featured "Ebony And Ivory" and McCartney's ode to John Lennon, "Here Today".
1977: Virgin Records releases the anti-establishment anthem "God Save The Queen" by The Sex Pistols. UK sales will reach over 150,000 in the first five days, despite the fact that major retailers refuse to sell the record and the BBC bans it from air-play. Against all odds, the single still reached #2 on the UK singles chart.
