Having mentioned British TV star Michaela Strachan, Elvis Presley and James Bond on their self-titled debut album, this track name-checks three Hollywood greats. Vocalist Roy Stride told the Sunday Mail January 10, 2010: "The album has a song called 'Famous,' which is a celebration of reality television and pop culture. In the song, we mention James Dean, Audrey Hepburn and Bette Davis. The line is, 'Forget Audrey Hepburn, forget Bette Davis. I want to be known just for being famous.'"
George Harrison's 1971 song "Bangla Desh" was the first major charity single. It was part of a concert held to bring relief to the people of Bangladesh, who were fighting for independence and suffering from a famine.
Geffen Records made history on June 27, 1994 when Aerosmith's "Head First" became the first major label song made available for exclusive digital download. Download speeds at the time were so slow it took around 75 minutes to download the track.
Carla Thomas became the first woman to achieve a Top 10 hit on the Hot 100 with a song she wrote herself when "Gee Whiz (Look At His Eyes)" reached the chart's top tier in 1961. Thomas was just 16-years-old when she penned it.
