On March 21, 1976, after a David Bowie concert at the Community War Memorial arena in Rochester, New York, #IggyPop and #DavidBowie were involved in a drug bust at their hotel room where the police found 182 grams (a little over 6.4 ounces) of marijuana. The pair spent the rest of the night in the Monroe County Jail and were released at about 7 a.m. on $2,000 bond each. #RockAndRoll #ThisDayInMusic

#LetThereBeRock is the fourth studio album by #ACDC. It was released on March 21, 1977. Rock and roll really doesn’t get any better than this. This kicks so much ass. Real music like this is timeless. #BonScott #AngusYoung #MalcolmYoung #MarkEvans #PhilRudd #HardRock #ClassicRock #BluesRock #RockAndRoll #ClassicAlbum #ThisDayInMusic #MusicHistory

Death’s sixth album, Symbolic, was released on March 21, 1995. This is possibly my favorite Death album (it continues to change) and yet another masterpiece in Chuck Schuldiner’s catalog.

March 21, 1992 - Vanessa Williams started a five week run at No.1 on the US singles chart with 'Save The Best To Last', a No.3 hit in the UK.
It is considered Vanessa Williams' signature song. The lyrics' redemptive themes resonated with Williams' story, as she had put together a successful recording career following her earlier Miss America resignation scandal.

This was written by the songwriting team of Jon Lind, Wendy Waldman and Phil Galdston. According to an interview with the writers in Songwriter Universe magazine, Lind and Galdston wrote the song with bitter and ironic lyrics, which Waldman changed to make it an uplifting song.
Save The Best For Last was not written specifically for Vanessa Williams. There were a number of other singers who were offered the song, they all turned it down. While recording her album The Comfort Zone, at the last minute, a song had to be replaced. Vanessa was played "Save The Best ForLast", and Vanessa said: I can't believe nobody wants this song. I have to have this song.
It was ranked fourth in the Billboard Top 100 hits of 1992, becoming the biggest success of Williams' music career. The song also went to #1 on the U.S. adult contemporary and R&B charts; it remained atop these charts for three weeks apiece. Internationally, the single shot to number one in Australia, the Netherlands, and Canada, and to number three in the United Kingdom, number two in Ireland, and number three in Japan.

ASCAP named it as its Song of the Year, meaning it was performed more than any other song in 1992, and it was nominated for the Grammy Award for Song of the Year and Record of the Year in 1993 losing to Eric Clapton's Tears In Heaven in both categories.

On this day fifty-four years ago, March 21, 1964, The Beatles' "She Loves You" hit the #1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and stayed there for two weeks. (Due to past negative experience, I no longer post any video clips containing Beatles songs). Wikipedia: "She Loves You" is a song written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney and recorded by English rock group the Beatles for release as a single in 1963. The single set and surpassed several records in the United Kingdom charts, and set a record in the United States as one of the five Beatles songs that held the top five positions in the charts simultaneously, on 4 April 1964. It is their best-selling single and the best selling single of the 1960s in the United Kingdom.

In November 2004, Rolling Stone ranked "She Loves You" number 64 on their list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. In August 2009, at the end of its "Beatles Weekend", BBC Radio 2 announced that "She Loves You" was the Beatles' all-time best-selling single in the UK based on information compiled by The Official Charts Company.

In Canada, the song was included on the album Twist and Shout. In the US, it was the final song on The Beatles' Second Album.

Beatlemania took hold of America, spurred by the group's appearances on The Ed Sullivan Show in February, where they performed this among other songs. "She Loves You" spent five weeks at No. 2, behind "I Want To Hold Your Hand", then replaced it for two weeks at No. 1 beginning on 21 March. The Beatles are one of only two artists ever whose first two Hot 100 singles held the top two positions simultaneously on that chart. During its fifteen-week run on the American charts, "She Loves You" was joined by four other Beatles songs at the top five in the American charts and became part of the group setting several all-time records for the Hot 100. Billboard ranked the record as the No. 2 song of 1964, behind "I Want to Hold Your Hand," making the Beatles the second act to hold the top two year-end record positions since Elvis Presley did it in 1956 with "Heartbreak Hotel" and "Don't Be Cruel."

March 21, 1987 - Club Nouveau started a two week run at No.1 on the US singles chart with their version of Bill Withers' 'Lean On Me', a No.3 hit in the UK. It also reached number one on the dance charts, and won a Grammy award in 1987 for Bill Withers, as the writer, for Best R&B Song.

Numerous cover versions have been recorded, and it is one of only nine songs to have reached No.1 with versions recorded by two different artists, Bill Withers and Club Nouveau.

Withers' childhood in the coal mining town of Slab Fork, West Virginia, was the inspiration for "Lean on Me", which he wrote after he had moved to Los Angeles and found himself missing the strong community ethic of his hometown. He lived in a decrepit house in the poor section of town.

Withers recalled the original inspiration for the song: I bought a little piano and I was sitting there just running my fingers up and down the piano. In the course of doing the music, that phrase crossed my mind, so then you go back and say, 'OK, I like the way that phrase, Lean On Me, sounds with this song.

March 21, 1981 - REO Speedwagon went to No.1 on the US singles chart with 'Keep On Loving You', the group's first top 40 hit and first No.1, a No.7 hit in the UK. It was the 500th No.1 song in the history of the Billboard Hot 100.

Before REO Speedwagon recorded this, they were known as a hard rock band. Keyboardist Neal Doughty initially had concerns about recording this love ballad, but his fears were allayed when this proved to be a breakthrough hit for the band. He recalled to Noisecreep in a 2011 interview: "During the making of the Hi Infidelity album, most of REO Speedwagon was going through some kind of personal turmoil. I'm talking about divorces and all sorts of crazy stuff. I remember when Kevin played me 'Keep on Loving You' for the first time I was a bit apprehensive about recording it. You have to remember, up to that point we were known as a rock band and here was this soft song. I wasn't sure how our hardcore fans would react to a ballad. But then Gary Richrath pulled out his guitar, cranked his amplifier to 11 and started playing along with Kevin. From that point, it felt right. Gary and Kevin had such different writing and playing styles and it worked so great on 'Keep on Loving You.' Once that song hit radio, it exploded. We finally had the hit that our label and we had wanted for years. It changed our lives forever.

REO Speedwagon was one of the first Rock bands to score big with power ballads in the '80s. They had the good fortune of being one of the hottest bands in America when MTV launched on August 1, 1981, so the network played their videos, even though they were low-budget affairs. "Keep On Loving You" was the 17th played on the first day of broadcast of MTV. With director Bruce Gowers, they shot four videos in one day, including the clip for "Keep On Loving You," which lead singer Kevin Cronin said: made us look like even bigger dorks than we were.

Most of the band's videos were dominated by performance footage, and they weren't photogenic enough to compete on the network with the likes of Duran Duran, Van Halen and other acts who did a better job matching a picture to the sound. A few years into MTV's existence, REO was out.

March 21, 1981 - "Woman" by John Lennon peaked at No.2 on the Hot 100 Singles chart. The song written and performed by John Lennon from his 1980 album Double Fantasy. The track begins with Lennon whispering, "For the other half of the sky ...", a paraphrase of a Chinese proverb, once used by Mao Zedong.

The track was chosen by Lennon to be the second single released from the Double Fantasy album, and it was the first Lennon single issued after his death on 8 December 1980.

Lennon wrote this song as an ode to his wife Yoko Ono. He regarded it as the most Beatles-like track on his Double Fantasy album and he called it the '80s update of "Girl," which is a track on Rubber Soul. Speaking with Rolling Stone on 5 December 1980 just days before his death, Lennon said: 'Woman' came about because, one sunny afternoon in Bermuda, it suddenly hit me what women do for us. Not just what my Yoko does for me, although I was thinking in those personal terms... but any truth is universal. What dawned on me was everything I was taking for granted. Women really are the other half of the sky, as I whisper at the beginning of the song. It's a 'we' or it ain't anything.

In the UK, this replaced Lennon's "Imagine" at No.1, which had been reissued following Lennon's death. This was the first time an artist replaced himself at UK No.1 since The Beatles did it in 1963 with "She Loves You" and "I Want To Hold Your Hand.

This is the only song title for which Lennon and McCartney wrote separate songs. In 1966 McCartney wrote a song of the same title for Peter & Gordon, using the pseudonym Bernard Webb.
