When Today’s 101 Number One Song of the Day reached the top it replaced Bad Blood by Neil Sedaka.  What made it more interesting is that Sedaka was replaced at the top by his boss.

He happened to be the owner of Rocket records and the year 1975 he had the Midas touch.  Not only was Neil Sedaka turning out gold but so was the man responsible for today’s featured oldie which was his third single of that year to get to number one.  He was happy with his success but his “celebrity” was making him, in his words, “pretty cheesed off” because he could go nowhere without be accosted by fans.  Success can have its downside but on November 1st, 1975 it was Elton John who got to number one with “Island Girl.”
