The song “Honey” by Bobby Goldsboro hit No. 1 the week after Martin Luther
King, Jr.
was assassinated in Memphis. Further, the Billboard Hot 100 top 10
run of "Honey" began the week of the King assassination and ended the week
of the assassination of Robert Kennedy, and no other Hot 100 entry had a top
10 run that spanned that same time interval. It sold over one million copies in
the United States.
