On this day in 1964, the Beatles held the top five position on the Billboard singles chart at once. No one had done that before, and no one's done it since.

Of course! Nobody will ever do that again! Awesomeness!:

No. 1, "Can't Buy Me Love"
No. 2, "Twist and Shout"
No. 3, "She Loves You"(my personal favorite)
No. 4, "I Want to Hold Your Hand"
No. 5, "Please Please Me"

On this day in 1970, the last Beatles LP release, Let It Be, was issued in Britain with a lavish picture book. (It was issued in America, without the book, on May 18, 1970.)

On this day in 1970, May 11, the Beatles released what would be their last new American single for nearly a quarter century, "The Long and Winding Road." Available in Britain only as a Let It Be album track, it was adorned with an orchestra by Phil Spector, which displeased Paul McCartney. Issued a week in advance of the U.S. release of the Let It Be LP, it was the Beatles' last American number-one single (for two weeks in June 1970).

On this day in 1970, the Beatles' last movie, the Let It Be documentary, had its world premiere in New York. It is the only Beatles movie to have its world premiere outside the United Kingdom. Availability on home video has been, umm, sporadic.

MAY 14, 1968 - John Lennon and Paul McCartney appeared on NBC-TV's "The Tonight Show" to announce the formation of their new label, Apple Records. Guest-host Joe Garagiola was sitting in for Johnny Carson who was on vacation. Garagiola, a former pro baseball star and sportscaster who apparently knew very little about pop music or The Beatles, at one point actually asked which one of the two was Ringo. Another guest co-host, the actress Tallulah Bankhead, seemed to look upon the duo's appearance as an affront to her Golden Age of Hollywood stardom.

The conversation included some light-hearted banter about meditation, the forming of Apple Corps. and song writing, but was cut short so as to give the appearance that the two Beatles have pressing appointment. The only surviving video copy is a three-minute excerpt a fan filmed by pointing a video camera at his TV set, although another fan audio recording of the entire interview has been widely bootlegged.

Today in music history, May 19:

1973: Paul Simon released the single 'Kodachrome' named after the Kodak 35mm film Kodachrome which became a No.2 hit in the U.S. It was not released as a single in Britain, because the BBC would not play the trademarked name. In America, some stations bleeped the word "crap" out.

1976: Rolling Stone Keith Richards crashed his car near Newport Pagnell, Bucks, after falling asleep at the wheel; marijuana and cocaine were found by the police resulting in another fine for the guitarist.

1979: Supertramp went to No.1 on the U.S. album chart with 'Breakfast In America', the group's only U.S. No.1. It featured three U.S. Billboard hit singles: 'The Logical Song', 'Goodbye Stranger' and 'Take the Long Way Home'.

1979: Jessi Colter and husband Waylon Jennings become the proud parents of their only child together. A son, Waylon Albright Jennings (Shooter).

Records Released:

1972 ● Elton John - Honky Chateau

1972 ● Uriah Heep - Demons & Wizards

1976 ● Billy Joel - Turnstiles

1977 ● The Kinks - Misfits
