The 101 number one song of the day was inspired by a tale of an Indian tribe whose members included far more men than women and how they coped with that situation.
The one time pre med student at New York University was in Canada when a medical missionary told him that the men who did not have women would buy bottles of rose wine which would become their women for the weekend. We’re not quite sure if the wine made them forget their predicament or the bottle in which it came was some sort of substitute but in any event, the song that grew out of that story reached number one on October 10, 1970 for Neil Diamond and here’s your 101 number one song of the day.
