The 101 number one song of the day was the one that proved to the world that this English Quartet was NOT a one hit wonder among the faceless multitude of British pop groups vying for chart attention in 1965. And it started them on the road to unprecedented longevity.
One of their founding members said to a biographer, “it’s difficult to realize what pressure we were under to keep turning out hits. Each single you made in those days had to be better and to do better…every eight weeks you had to come up with a red-hot song that said it all in two minutes, 30 seconds.” Obviously, they’ve stood up to the pressure for forty years because they’re still selling out stadiums 40 years later – Today’s 101 number one song of the day reached the top of the charts on November 6, 1965 and belongs to the Rolling Stones – (Get Off My Cloud)
