On this day in music history…November 17th.
1962, The Four Seasons’ “Big Girls Don’t Cry” reached No. 1 in the U.S. and began a five week run.
1967, The Who played a concert in the gymnasium at Shawnee Mission South High School in Overland Park, Kansas. They were touring in support of The Buckinghams. The Byrds also played at the High School in 1969.
1974, John Lennon’s Walls and Bridges went to No. 1 in the U.S. It was Lennon’s second No. 1 (solo) album in the U.S. and it produced his only No. 1 single (“Whatever Gets You Thru the Night”).
1979, The Commodores’ “Still” reached the top spot on U.S. charts. The song was the band’s second No. 1 single; “Three Times a Lady” was the first.
