1945: The Yalta Conference between Stalin, Churchill and FDR

We remember the Yalta Conference of 1945 between PM Churchill of the UK, President FD Roosevelt of the US and Premier Stalin of the USSR.    

Unfortunately, PM Churchill turned out to be right about "The Iron Curtain" and Eastern Europe.    In less than a year, the Red Army marched into Romania, Poland and other countries.   It took almost 50 years to drive them out!

It also began their incredible domination of the US pop charts.  

According to Billboard, The Beatles had the #1 song in the US from February 1st to May 9th:

1974: Barbra Streisand's "The way we were" was # 1 this week

"The way we were" was released in 1973.    It quickly became a very popular romantic film starring Barbra Streisand and Robert Redford.   The movie's title theme was # 1 this week in 1974.   

As far as I'm concerned, this is Streisand's finest song.    Alan Bergman and his wife Marilyn wrote the lyrics to this song, and Marvin Hamlisch wrote the music.

Her voice is incredible.
