There were several significant events on this day between the years 1958 and 2003.

On this day in 1958 future singer-songwriter Kate Bush is born in Bexleyheath, England.

On this day in 1963 The Beatles are in the studio recording takes of : "Please Mr. Postman", "It Won't Be Long", "Money (That's What I Want)", "Till There Was You", "Roll Over Beethoven" and "All My Loving."

On this day in 1965 The Rolling Stones release the platter Out Of Our Heads.

On this day in 1966 The Beatles' Yesterday And Today LP hits number one. Also on this day The Troggs' “Wild Thing” hits number one.

On this day in 1969 The Beatles, producer George Martin, and the Abbey Road engineers put together the first rough cut of the proposed Abbey Road medley. Paul McCartney, feeling that the song "Her Majesty" distracts from the flow of the medley, has it removed and orders it erased. Second engineer John Kurlander, not wanting to trash a Beatles song, instead adds it to the end of the medley tape, adding 15 seconds of leader to make sure it's kept separate. When he finds out, McCartney likes the effect so much that he leaves the ending of the LP that way.

On this day in 1977 Andy Gibb's song “I Just Want To Be Your Everything” enters the charts.
