The 101 number one song of the day came from a group with a long and storied history.  But now their longtime lead singer and creative force was gone and they need a whole new direction. 

They began by writing their own material and added an array of new musical effects, including water drums and synthesizers on their new album.  When listened to in sequence, the songs told the story of a country girl named Charlotte who seeks fame and fortune in LA.  When her boyfriend follows her there, he becomes the star.  The song that was number one on March 7, 1976 is titled with his ironic description of himself after becoming a celebrity…it’s the Miracles with “Love Machine Pt 1”
