1968: The Box Tops are awarded their second Gold record for "Cry Like a Baby". Their first was for "The Letter".
1971: The Rolling Stones' "Brown Sugar" is released. It would reach number one in the US and number two in the UK. Although the lyrics were the subject of much controversy, Mick Jagger would later tell Rolling Stone, "God knows what I'm on about on that song. It's such a mishmash. All the nasty subjects in one go... I never would write that song now."
