    Millie Small's heart will never again "go giddyup." In July 1964, her My Boy Lollipop went to number one in Australia, #2 in the US and the UK and #3 in Canada. Her follow-up, Sweet William, stalled at #40 in the US. She released several more singles including remakes of Killer Joe, Honey Hush, See You Later Alligator, Wings Of A Dove, What Am I Living For and I Love The Way You Love but never had another hit.

    Kraftwerk was best known for their 1975 #25 hit Autobahn. The song was 22:43 in length and was cut to 3:28 for release as a single. Many people misunderstood the line "Wir fahren, fahren, fahren auf der Autobahn" as "Fun, fun, fun on the Autobahn." Nope, sorry. It's German for "We drive, drive, drive on the Autobahn (expressway)."

    Kraftwerk co-founder Florian Schneider dies at 73

    This is not an illusion. Roy really died. Siegfried and Roy were born in Germany. They emigrated to the United States and became naturalized citizens. From 1990 to 2003 (when Roy got mauled by one of the tigers that were part of their show), they performed at the Mirage in Las Vegas.
