1981: After topping record charts around the world, a medley of hits credited to Stars On 45 reaches number one in America.
1965: The Four Tops had their first US number one record with "I Can't Help Myself". Lead singer Levi Stubbs had not been satisfied with the recording session and was promised that he could do it again the following day, but no other session ever took place. The track that became a hit was just the second take of the song.

1971: Carole King saw her "Tapestry" album hit number 1 in the US for the first of 15 consecutive weeks. The LP contained such classic tracks as "It's Too Late", "I Feel the Earth Move", "So Far Away", "Will You Love Me Tomorrow?" and "You've Got a Friend". The Grammy Award winning disc is considered by many to be one of the best Rock 'n' Roll albums of all time.
