What year was it?

These songs were what people were listening to:

  • 'Good Lovin' (The Young Rascals)
  • 'Paperback Writer' (The Beatles)
  • 'The Sounds Of Silence' (Simon & Garfunkel)

These events were in the news:

  • 'Yesterday', the most recorded song in the history of pop music, is released by Paul McCartney in the first solo by a Beatle. The record label, however, still reads "Beatles".
  • CBS backs out of plans to broadcast 'Psycho', deeming the movie too violent for at-home viewing.
  • Insulin is first synthesized in China.
