Posted in 101 #1 Song of The Day
Listen for the replay between 10 am and 7 and caller # 10 wins 2 tickets (worth almost $200) to see the best Mariachi in the world!!! Mariachi Vargas de Tecalitlan at El Paso’s Plaza Theatre Saturday February 16th.
The 101 number one song of the day stayed on top of the charts for 4 weeks so the fans loved it but the critics hated it calling it, among other things, a defection to another genre and many called it an unforgiveable transgression.
One wrote of the writer/performer, “Rarely has anyone betrayed his talent so completely.” He had an impressive string of rock and roll hits but this one was different. It was – disco! But it was number one in America on February 13th, 1979. It was also number one in ten other countries for Rod Stewart – Da Ya Think I’m Sexy?
