On this day:
At 18th February of 1992, Guns N' Roses released their hit single, "November Rain". Written by the band's lead singer Axl Rose, the song was released as the third single from their third studio album, 'Use Your Illusion I' (1991). It features a sweeping orchestral backing and is one of Guns N' Roses' longest songs. "November Rain" peaked at number 3 on the United States Billboard Hot 100 chart, making it the longest song in history to enter the top ten of that chart. Since its release, the song has sold over 1,000,000 copies worldwide.

After a massive debut album, Guns N’ Roses were on top of the world in the early 90's. They sold out arenas and you couldn’t go a day without hearing one of their songs on any radio station. Rock music was changing at the time, with the rise of Nirvana and Grunge, Guns N’ Roses were in danger of being left behind.

The albums Use Your Illusion I and Use Your Illusion II were released simultaneously in 1991. This was a bold move, but the band was huge and the albums both sold very well. When they were released, Use Your Illusion II was the #1 album in the US, followed by Use Your Illusion I. The last time an artist had the top two albums at the same time was in 1974, when two Jim Croce albums held the top spots shortly after his death. Both albums represent a change from the hard rock sound that put the band on the map in the 80's, with more emphasis on synths, piano and lyrics.

‘November Rain’ is a song that has been heard in every corner of the world, from the melodic piano intro and the mind blowing synths, to the two long but brilliant solos and also Axl's sorrowful lyrics, it’s a complete song that is loved by the mainstream crowd but at times hated by rock fans. It's a song about heartbreak and a critique of the notion of 'happy endings'.

Written by Axl Rose, the original version of this song was 25-minutes long, and was edited down to 8:59. It is the longest ever Top 10 hit and contains the longest guitar solo in a Top 10 single. Slash actually plays two guitar solos in the song. Rose put the song's lengthy gestation period down to opposition from Slash and Duff McKagan. 

The video was directed by Andy Morahan, who had done the popular George Michael videos for "Father Figure" and "Faith," and worked with GnR on "Don't Cry" and "You Could Be Mine." A huge production, the "November Rain" video cost over $1.5 million to make, but reaped rewards for the band, as it got a lot of play on MTV. It stars actress and model Stephanie Seymour, Axl Rose's girlfriend at the time. 

In the video, she and Axl get married with Slash serving as best man and the rest of the band in the front row. After the wedding, it starts raining and the next scene is Stephanie's funeral in the same church. This song won for best cinematography at the 1992 MTV Video Music Awards, where it also received a Video Vanguard award. Guns N' Roses performed this at the end of the show with Elton John on piano.

So that's why...
 
Why Indian food is so tasty to eat (compared to other cuisines)

The power of data science revealed. Researchers from the Indian Institute of Technology, Jodhpur, compiled statistics regarding hundreds of popular online recipes to discover this surprising fact.

Go through their story, hard-to-wrap-your-head-around sections explained with infographics, here:
http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/wonkblog/2015/03/03/a-scientific-explanation-of-what-makes-indian-food-so-delicious/

For those who might just TL;DR this amazing article, here's the condensed news.

The researchers discovered that Indian cuisine contains such ingredients whose flavours rarely or do not overlap, as compared to western cuisine, whose ingredients' flavour regularly overlap. This makes available a wider range of flavours, making the food tastier. 
Indian food is something of an anomaly, but not for the reasons you might think.
