Van Morrison told Mojo November 2012 this was the first song that he ever wrote: "That was in Germany in '62," he explained. "I wrote some poetry before that but that was the first song I remember. It was pretty good. A country type thing. I was always messing around with it at rehearsals and one day the trumpet player said, 'What's that?' and I said, 'it's a song I'm working on,' and he said, 'We should do that.' That's how it started."
"We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" by Taylor Swift earned an entry in the 2014 edition of the Guinness Book of Records for the fastest-selling digital single. It reached the #1 spot on iTunes just 50 minutes after its release.
