Nothing up-and-coming this month, but stay tuned!

On this day…

Ariana Grande-Butera was born on June 26, 1993, in Boca Raton, Florida. Her family moved from New York to Florida before her birth, and her parents separated when she was eight or nine years old. As a young child, Grande performed with the Fort Lauderdale Children’s Theater, playing her first role as the title character […] The post Ariana Grande appeared first on This Day In Music.

As of July 2024, “Blinding Lights” (2019) by Canadian singer the Weeknd is the most-streamed song to date. Four artists tie for having the most songs (including features) in the top 100; The Weeknd, Dua Lipa, Post Malone and Bruno Mars each have five. The newest song in the top 100 is “Flowers” by Miley […] The post Most streamed artists on Spotify appeared first on This Day In Music. [Read More...]

The music of the Everly Brothers influenced the Beatles, with Paul McCartney and John Lennon referring to themselves as “the British Everly Brothers”. Keith Richards called Don Everly “one of the finest rhythm guitar players” Don was born in Brownie, Muhlenberg County, Kentucky, on February 1, 1937, and Phil in Chicago, Illinois, on January 19, […] The post The Everly Brothers appeared first on This Day In Music.

They say Frank Sinatra was the first ‘teen idol’ (although history tells us Franz Liszt, the 19th-century piano composer drove women to hysterics). Elvis had the same effect and then in the early 60’s Beatlemania. Swooning, screaming, crying, hiding in hotel cleaners cupboards, climbing through windows and fighting police officers, for decades, young women have […] The post Boy Bands appeared first on This Day In Music.

1. Benny Andersson became (at age 18) a member of a popular Swedish pop-rock group, the Hep Stars, that performed covers, amongst other things, of international hits.

Their first attempt was “Isn’t It […] The post ABBA appeared first on This Day In Music. [Read More...]

1. Graduating from the BRIT School for Performing Arts and Technology in 2006, (where she was a classmate of Leona Lewis and Jessie J), Adele was given a recording contract by XL Recordings after a friend posted her demo on Myspace. 2.

Talking about the secret of Aerosmith’s long-lasting success, singer Steven Tyler once said; “Great melody over great riffs is, to me, the secret of it all.” And he’s right, since their formation in 1970, the ‘Bad Boys from Boston’ have brought us just that. Steven Victor Tallarico was born on March 26, 1948, at the […] The post Aerosmith appeared first on This Day In Music. [Read More...]

The cover version can be difficult, but if an artist pulls it off, they can create something incredible that completely overshadows the original. These songs did just that. We look at cover versions that managed what song purists would call unthinkable – they charted higher than the original, all becoming number 1 hits. Love Is […] The post Cover versions that made No.1. appeared first on This Day In Music. [Read More...]

Badfinger had four consecutive worldwide hits from 1970 to 1972: “Come and Get It” (written and produced by Paul McCartney, “No Matter What”, “Day After Day” (produced by George Harrison, and “Baby Blue”. The future looked bright, “Come and Get It” released in December 1969 in the UK, and January 1970 in the US sold […] The post Badfinger appeared first on This Day In Music. [Read More...]
