The 101 number one song of the day was written by the same guys that wrote the song it replaced at the top of the charts.  That happened twice before but never for two completely unrelated artists…even the whole sound was different.

The writers were Kenny Nolan and Bob Crewe who was a onetime member and longtime producer for Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons.  In fact the song that was knocked out of the top spot by today’s featured song was “My Eyes Adored You” by Frankie Valli.  The song you’re about to hear was recorded by a group that had been around since the early sixties but with only limited success.  Now with a new name – which they took from the their lead singer – they finally scored a huge hit.  Unfortunately, it would also be their last although the lead singer is still very active to this day.   On March 29, 1975 this song reached number one – “Lady Marmalade” LaBelle (Patti LaBelle)
