August 13, 1966: Napoleon XIV peaks at #3 with “They’re Coming to Take Me Away, Ha-Haaa!”. The song holds the record for dropping the most spots within the Top 40 in a single week (32 chart positions), mainly because so many radio stations decided to stop playing it due to concerns that it was insensitive to the mentally ill.

August 13, 1966: The Lovin’ Spoonful reach #1 with “Summer in the City”, the first song to top the charts featuring actual sounds recorded from the streets! The band was VERY picky when it came to the sounds they wanted and refused to use the generic sound effects they had available in the studio. Instead, they brought in a sound engineer and spent HOURS picking out specific car horns and construction clips from his huge library of sounds. Perhaps because of the success of this song, Soul Survivors used similar traffic sounds a year later for their hit song, “Expressway (To Your Heart)”.
