The 101 number one song of the day was hated by the lead singer of the group that recorded it– not because he didn’t like the melody but rather because it hit much too close to home.

 

Dennis Edwards remembers the first time he heard the song, he got terribly upset.  Eventually, he grew to love the song but not until it got to number one and won a Grammy to boot.  The original problem was a particular lyric: “It was the third of September/That day I’ll always remember/Cause that was the day my daddy died.”  As it happened, that was the day Dennis’ father actually did die, although he was a real preacher, not the kind portrayed in the song which reached number one during this week in 1972 for the Temptations.
