Nursing a Halloween Candy Hangover? We feel you. Fun fact for the start of November: it was approximately 20 years ago today that Scandinavia’s Aqua rocked the UK Singles Chart with their massive hit, “Barbie Girl”.

There’s something interesting about the date January 18th. Well, at least there was something pretty interesting happening on this date in the 1960s: in ’64, the Beatles entered the US Charts with ‘I Want To Hold Your Hand’ for the first time; a year later, the Stones recorded two iconic songs, ‘The Last Time’ and ‘Play With Fire’ with Phil Spector; and just two years later, The Jimi Hendrix Experience belted out ‘Hey Joe’ for the first time on Top of the Pops! Let us all revel in that classic rock trivia and distract ourselves with something a little more modern:
Today we’re looking back on Marvin Gaye’s first-ever #1 hit on the charts, “I Heard It Through the Grapevine”, which debuted back in 1968. Seems pretty random, you say? Well yes, it is!

With that said, enjoy this random sampling of music videos from TuneCore Artists!
