11/6/1965 (52 years ago today) - It knocked "Yesterday" by The Beatles out of the top spot: The Rolling Stones start a two week run at No. 1 on the singles chart with "Get Off Of My Cloud", their second U.S. chart-topper ("Satisfaction" was first, peaking at No. 1 back on July 10 of '65). Some of Mick's best lines ever are in this one...

11/6/1967 (50 years ago today) - It's since been covered by Jimi Hendrix, Dave Mason, Eric Clapton & Lenny Kravitz, Bobby Womack, Frank Marino & Mahogany Rush, Richie Havens, U2, Bryan Ferry, Neil Young, Buddy Miles, The Indigo Girls, Dave Matthews, Grateful Dead, Spirit, Taj Mahal, John Mayer, Paul Weller, XTC, and Eddie Vedder: During a (relatively quick) three hour session at Columbia Studios in Nashville, Bob Dylan records the original version of "All Along The Watchtower" for his forthcoming LP "John Wesley Harding". Who knew...?

11/6/1971 (46 years ago today) - Surpassed (perhaps) only by Yoko Ono and Madonna as one of the few female artists who have become cultural icons that really don't give a s--t what you think about 'em: Cher started a two week run at No. 1 with "Gypsys, Tramps And Thieves", her first solo U.S. No. 1. Turned out she was much more savvy than we all thought...
