Brandy (You're a Fine Girl) / Looking Glass

One-hit wonder Looking Glass enjoyed a week on top of the Billboard Hot 100 in the summer of 1972 with “Brandy (You’re a Fine Girl)” — a song that, all these decades later, remains a staple of oldies and soft rock radio station formats.

Batman Forever: Music From The Motion Picture

Sweeping irresistibly forward like some dream hybrid of Ziggy Stardust, Kashmir-era Zeppelin and German techno, U2’s massive “Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me” launches the “Batman Forever” soundtrack, followed by tracks by Brandy (the Lenny Kravitz-produced “Where Are You Now?”), Seal (the Grammy-winning “Kiss from a Rose”), Eddi Reader (“Nobody Lives Without Love”), The Devlins (“Crossing the River”) and many more.

Lindbergh

Few American icons provoke more enduring fascination than Charles Lindbergh — renowned for his solo 1927 transatlantic flight, remembered for the sorrow surrounding the kidnapping and death of his firstborn son in 1932, and reviled by many for opposing America’s entry into World War II.

The Yugo: The Rise and Fall of the Worst Car in History

Brilliantly re-creating the amazing confluence of events that produced the Yugo, Yugoslav expert Jason Vuic uproariously tells the story of the car that became an international joke: the Yugo.

Mother Teresa

Many have called her a saint. She won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1979 and India’s highest civilian honor, the Jewel of India, in 1980. Pope John Paul II declared her “Blessed,” beatifying her in 2003. For nearly 50 years as the head of Calcutta’s Missionaries of Charity, Mother Teresa advocated for the poor and homeless, ministered to the sick, provided hospice for the afflicted and embodied the very essence of humanitarianism.

A Good Life: Newspapering and Other Adventures

The editor-in-chief of The Washington Post recounts his life and career in journalism, from his early friendship with Senator John F. Kennedy to his famous role in the Watergate investigation.

Musical Milestones

1966 – Wedding bells ring as legendary entertainer Frank Sinatra marries actress Mia Farrow. He’s 50, she’s 21. The marriage lasts just two years.

1969 – Zager and Evans are No. 1 on the pop chart with “In the Year 2525.”

1974 – The three-day Ozark Music Festival opens at the Missouri State Fairgrounds in Sedalia, Missouri, and draws a crowd estimated at 350,000 — bigger than the more famous Woodstock Festival. Acts include Bachman-Turner Overdrive, Blue Öyster Cult, Eagles, Aerosmith, America, Jefferson Starship, the Marshall Tucker Band, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Joe Walsh.

1975 – Paul McCartney and Wings reach the top of the Billboard Hot 100 with “Listen To What The Man Said.”

1980 – Billy Joel holds the top position of both the album and singles charts. His album, “Glass Houses,” contains his first and biggest No. 1 hit, “It’s Still Rock ’n’ Roll to Me.”

1986 – “Invisible Touch,” by Genesis, ranks No. 1 on the Billboard singles survey. 

1988 – A year before the fall of the Berlin Wall, Bruce Springsteen performs for more than 300,000 fans in East Berlin, saying “I’m not here for any government. I’ve come to play rock ‘n’ roll for you in the hope that one day all the barriers will be torn down.”

1997 – “I’ll Be Missing You,” by Puff Daddy and Faith Evans featuring 112, is midway through an 11-week domination of the pop chart.

2003 – No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for a second straight week: “Crazy in Love,” by Beyoncé featuring Jay-Z.
