The 101 number one song of the day got its beginning because of idol worship – it certainly wasn’t because of talent.

The song’s producer, Snuff Garrett said he had two idols growing up: one was Roy Rogers and the other was the father of the man you’re about to hear.  The elder man later became Garrett’s neighbor and when the son formed a band he was asked to listen to them and see if they
might produce a record together.  Garrett remembers thinking that the kid wasn’t a very good singer but maybe, with the help of the father promoting the record, it could be a hit.  So, once in the studio, he began mixing him with other singers and when he got through, he said he sounded like Mario Lanza.  That may be a slight exaggeration but that song did reach number one on February 20, 1965 for the son of Jerry
Lewis.  It was Gary Lewis and the Playboys (This Diamond Ring)
