The 101 number one song of the day was the result of a drunken night of revelry for the man who John Lennon called his favorite American singer.

He was a song writer whose work was recorded by The Turtles, Lulu, Rick Nelson, Blood, Sweat and Tears and many others.  In fact, Three Dog Night scored a top ten hit with his song, “One.”  Oddly enough, his own biggest hit recordings were written by someone else.  One night, he was listening to music and throwing back a number of drinks when a particular song struck his fancy.  The following day, when he sobered up, he tried to remember the song.  At first he thought it was a Beatles song but eventually he realized it was something on a Badfinger album.  He thought it had the potential to be a number one song and he was right.  On February 22, 1972 it was atop Billboard’s Hot 100 – It’s Nillson “Without You.”
