101 Number One Song of the Day was recorded by a group about to disband.  They were going to give it one more try in the studio and then go their separate ways.  What happened next turned their careers around and left America with a symbol that is as popular today than it was then. 

 

The song was inspired by a true story about a man returning home from prison.  When the demo was played for the group, two of the three singers thought it had hit written all over it but the third thought it was pretty corny. However, he couldn’t get the song out of his head and pretty soon, his opinion changed.  They recorded the song and instead of disbanding they ended up getting a network TV show.  Plus America got a lasting symbol of homecoming.  The 101 number song of the day for April 18 – the year is 1973 and Dawn is the group.
