1960: Elvis Presley's first release since leaving the US Army, "Stuck On You", tops the Billboard chart. The record had been so highly anticipated, it sold over one million copies before it was even recorded. It reached #3 in the UK.
1976: Wings' "At The Speed Of Sound" went to #1 on the US album chart. It was Paul McCartney's fifth #1 after he left The Beatles.
1983: Dexys Midnight Runners went to the top of the Billboard singles chart with "Come On Eileen", the group's only US #1. The song also topped the UK chart. The band took their name from the amphetamine Dexedrine, commonly known as Dexys, and therefore the group's name is improperly spelled when an apostrophe is used between the y and the s.
1968: Trumpeter Herb Alpert sang "This Guy's In Love With You" on his CBS-TV special. The Burt Bacharach / Hal David composition would rise to the top of the US chart, where it stayed for four weeks. It reached #3 in the UK.
1973: Alice Cooper had the #1 album in the US with "Billion Dollar Babies". The LP also topped the chart in the UK.
1968: The Rolling Stones record "Jumpin' Jack Flash", which will reach #1 in the UK and #3 in the US by next July.
