If you don’t remember the impact British bands had on the American music scene in 1964, you will after listening to this medley!
Ten songs today (with their peak chart positions indicated in parentheses next to the artist name) and every one of them was from a British band … and trust me, I could have gone on a lot longer.
Yes, there were American bands and solo singers hitting the charts in 1964 and I’ll get to them tomorrow but today, it’s all about the British Invasion.
