Rome burns, a famous gunslinger kills for the first time, Marilyn Monroe passes a big test, and The King's first single is released, all on this day.

OTD July 19 - Billy Joel
13 / 42
Columbia Records

1980: "It's Still Rock & Roll to Me" becomes Billy Joel's first No. 1 hit. It would stay on top of the chart for two weeks and be followed by two more No. 1 hits so far in Joel's career (1983's "Tell Her About It" and 1989's "We Didn't Start the Fire").
