On January 14, 2007, Amy Winehouse started her two weeks at No.1 position on the UK album chart with her iconic Back To Black. The London singer released her second album a few weeks before, but reached the top only later.

With over 16 million copies sold, the album brought Amy Winehouse to fame and presented her to the larger public, who immediately fell in love. And understandably so: the album contains some of the singer’s biggest hits. These include: “Back To Black,” opening single “Rehab” and “You Know I’m No Good.”

Versatile, creative and soulful, the album is Amy Winehouse’s perfect representation and an unmissable experience for any music fan.

January 15, 1969: Goodbye Beatles

As mentioned in the latest English band’s movie “The Beatles: Get Back,” tension in 1969 was the main element in members’ relationships. The 1962 chemistry that made The Beatles the biggest band ever was fading away, and the first cracks appearing.

During the creation of Let It Be, The Fab Four’s last studio album, Paul McCartney, John Lennon, George Harrison and Ringo Starr were on the verge of a breakup. In fact, multiple discrepancies and disagreements rose from the production of the album. As well as, the performance that would have followed.

To make it clear was George Harrison, who went to have a five-hour meeting with the other three members. In the meeting, he made it clear that he was fully prepared to quit The Beatles. Despite becoming one of the most iconic live sets ever, not even the “Rooftop Concert” could save the band’s integrity.
