101 # 1 Song of the Day 3-13-13

Listen for the 101 # 1 song of the day replay to win two tickets to the “Second Chance” Prom this weekend.

The 101 number one song of the day was the first British single to reach number one in America without making the chart in its own country.  And for that there was a very good reason. 


It was never released as a single in Great Britain.  Over there, albums were usually released with more tracks than their American counterparts resulting in enough left over material to create interim patchwork LPs.  That was the case in today’s featured record which was on an album over there but on a different album over here where the decision was made to release it as a single and it was on top of the charts on March 13, 1965 for the Beatles
