The 101 Number One song of the day was written by Bruce Springsteen and originally appeared on his debut album “Greetings From Asbury Park.”   But it wasn’t the Boss who made it famous. 

He did release it as a single but it bombed.  It was then recorded by a new band fronted by a keyboard player who had several hits in the 60s but in the 70s he fell on some hard times, musically speaking.  But when his new group recorded Bruce’s song he was back on top.  It was number one in America on February 19th, 1977 – for Manfred Mann’s Earth Band – “Blinded by the Light”
