A quickie, a crime, a cool birthday...

11/21/1960 (57 years ago today) - Maurice Williams & The Zodiacs hit No. 1 with the classic single "Stay" -- At a mere one minute 37 seconds, it's (likely)  the shortest-ever song to top the singles chart. Other contenders include Elvis' "(Let Me Be Your) Teddy Bear" (1957) coming in at 1:46, and The Box Tops' "The Letter" (1967), a whopping 1:55, give or take, fade-outs are kinda tricky to judge...

11/21/1974 (43 years ago today) - Ah, the good old days when soul artists committed crimes, why when I was growing up...etc., etc.: Wilson Pickett was arrested in New York City for "possession of a dangerous weapon" after he pulled a gun during an argument. The Big Apple in '74, those were different times...

11/21/1941 - Born on this day, Memphis, Tennessee saxophone legend Andrew Love, best known for being a member of The Memphis Horns -- With fellow musician Wayne Jackson on trumpet, they created the fantastic-and-super-catchy Stax studios signature horn sound that graced many all-time classics; to name but a few {deep breath now}, how about Al Green's "Let's Stay Together", Neil Diamond - "Sweet Caroline", Elvis - "Suspicious Minds", Dusty Springfield - "Son Of A Preacher Man", Otis Redding - "(Sittin' On) The Dock Of The Bay", U2 - "Angel Of Harlem" and Peter Gabriel's "Sledgehammer" (bear in mind, this is only a partial list!) -- In 2002, Andrew was forced to retire after being diagnosed with Alzheimer's; he passed away in 2012 at age 70. One of the very best.
