This Day in Pop Culture for April 19

1975: Love Will Keep Us Together?

On this day in 1975, America heard the lyrics of “Love Will Keep Us Together” by Toni Tennille and Daryl Dragon, aka The Captain the Tennille for the first time. The couple married in November of that year and became one of the most successful husband/wife musical duos. The couple produced seven top 10 singles in the next five years with themes about love, marriage and even, gasp, marital sex. Their last album together, ICON, was released in 2013. For years, no one would doubt that the pair were a happy couple. Unfortunately, on January 16, 2016, Tennille filed for divorce from the Captain after 39 years of marriage! No more “muskrat love” for these two apparently.

1971: Charles Manson Sentenced

Cult leader Charles Manson was sentenced to death on this day in 1971 (but the ruling was later changed to life imprisonment) for conspiracy in the Tate-LaBianca murders.
