101 number one song was the title cut to an album that was recorded in Lagos, Nigeria which was chosen for one reason and one reason only, but it turned out to be the wrong reason.

The location was selected for its sunny climate.  Unfortunately, the group arrived during the rainy season and it was wet and cloudy the whole time.  To make matters worse, during a break from the studio, they were held up at knifepoint and robbed.  Nevertheless, the album was completed and it produced several singles that proved to be big hits.  But the biggest hit was its title cut and this week in 1974 it became the third number one hit Paul McCartney since the Beatles broke up.  Here he is with Wings and today’s 101 number one song of the day. “Band on the Run”
