1965: The UK music show Juke Box Jury, a program where four panelists review new Pop music, turns thumbs down on The Righteous Brothers' latest release, "You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling", calling it "a miss." It will prove to be one of the most talked about miscalculations in the show's history, as the tune would go on to top both the UK and US charts.
1966: Although they would go on to have a great deal of success on the Country chart, The Statler Brothers enjoy their only Billboard Hot 100 success when "Flowers On The Wall" peaks at #4.
1969: The music / comedy trio, Scaffold, which included Paul McCartney's younger brother Mike, led the UK singles chart with a novelty tune called "Lily The Pink". Elton John, along with Graham Nash of The Hollies, contributed backing vocals and Jack Bruce of Cream played bass guitar.
1973: Carly Simon's "You're So Vain" leads the US hit parade, stirring speculation about exactly who she was singing about. In 2015 Simon told People magazine that the subject in question is actually a composite of three different men, including actor Warren Beatty, but did not include her ex-husband, James Taylor. She later complicated the debate by claiming that she was singing about openly gay record producer David Geffen.
