Listen for the replay to win 2 tickets to the Baby Boomer Comedy Show.

The 101 number one song of the day had a rough road to the top – nobody in the group wanted to record it except its writer and he had no idea what it meant.

Producer Lou Adler didn’t like the song either but this group of four was heavily influenced by their de-facto leader John who insisted they record the song before they put their new album to bed.  He said to his dying day that he had no idea what the song was all about but he liked it none the less.  Although the other three in the group didn’t like it, the public did and radio stations started playing it off the album since it was never intended to be a single.  By the time it finally was released as a single, it was so popular that more than 150,000 were sold on the first day.  And during this week in 1966 it reached the number one spot in America – for the Mamas and the Papas (Monday, Monday)
