11/9/1958 (62 years ago today) - The Elvis Presley single release, "Hound Dog", exceeds the three-million-copies-sold-mark here in the U.S., becoming only the third song to achieve that status -- The other two? Bing Crosby's "White Christmas" and "Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer" by Gene Autry. The Holy Trinity!

11/9/1969 (51 years ago today) - Simon and Garfunkel record "Bridge Over Troubled Water"; the legendary piano-playing on the tune was provided by Larry Knechtel, who would go on to become a founding member of soft-rock standard-bearers Bread -- Did you know....: Art originally wanted Paul to sing the song, but Paul insisted that Art's voice was better suited for it, and yes, it was a decision that haunts Simon to this very day. With all of the ego's and temperament involved, it was (nearly) miraculous the track turned out to be one of the most perfect recordings ever. A genuine gem for sure...

11/9/1991 (29 years ago today) - It's one of his mightiest/most catchiest tracks, and he had a ton of 'em: Prince (with The New Power Generation band) starts a two week run at No. 1 with the beyond-infectious "Cream". Try not to dance...it's impossible, you will even if you can't...
