The 101 number one song of the day was a “Mancunian Hat Trick.”
It was recorded by a band whose lead singer was a former child star in his native England. When he turned to music he was much more popular in America. In fact, today’s featured song was never even released as a single in his home country. Now, back to the Mancunian Hat Trick – despite all the hoopla over the “Liverpool Sound” the 101 number one song of the day was the third song in a row from a “Manchester, England” group to reach number one in America when it arrived at the top on May 1, 1965. If you’re from Las Cruces, you’re a Las Crucen – people from Manchester are Mancunians. The two previous Mancunian songs were “I’m telling you now” from Freddie and the Dreamers, and Game of Love by Wayne Fontana and the Mindbenders and now – it’s another bunch of Mancunians: Herman’s Hermits and “Mrs. Brown, You’ve Got a Lovely Daughter”
