This Day in Music – “An Everyday Record of Musical Facts” is what This Day in Music is all about. This sweet website is a cut to the chase resource of historical facts of the music industry. Updated on a daily basis, This Day in Music offers interesting (and real) facts about musicians, bands, concert venues, singers and more that took place today in previous years, from the 50s till today.
But the added value of This Day in Music goes beyond “the Beatles played in Carnegie Hall.” Learn what was the #1 hit on the day you were born, browse through the much less famous mugshots of old time rock & rollers, and discover many more fascinating music pointers. I was really into learning what music inspired famous artists, and This Day in Music’s First Record feature offers just that. This is how I found out for example, that Lenny Kravitz grew up listening to Elton John’s Philadelphia Freedom, and that Nick Cave was shaking his thing to the sounds of Herb Alpert and The Tijuana Brass’ Spanish Flea.
