1968: An Oxford, Ohio group called the Lemon Pipers saw their only Billboard Top 40 hit, "Green Tambourine", reach #1. It made #7 in the UK. The band would never repeat their success, although "Rice Is Nice" (#46) and "Jelly Jungle" (#70) did enter the Hot 100 later in the year.

New to our Information page (under the "Help Out" menu) is the Empowering Internet Safety Guide for Women! From their website:

"Have you ever been harassed in the street? Received a crass message on a dating app? Had a coworker make a comment about your appearance that just didn’t sit right?

You’re not alone."

"This guide was written with the intention of empowering women to navigate the internet without fear. We discuss common occurrences in which women are subject to harassment in their daily lives – on social media, at work, while dating, and more – and give tips and advice on how women can take control.

It is important for us to note that some of the advice given here encourages anonymity, rather than risking being targeted. While this may seem to run counter to the idea of encouraging self-expression, we believe that every woman should be empowered to make that choice for herself.

Our job is to give you the tools you need to do that.

We hope this guide encourages women everywhere to defend and protect themselves, and to stand up to sexual harassment, both on and off the web."

1987: Paul Simon's "Graceland" went to number 1 on the UK album chart. The LP would stay on the list for 101 weeks.
