The 101 number one song of the day was a mixed blessing for the one time bar band that got its start at New Jersey’s Rutgers University.  People who liked the song usually didn’t like the concert the group performed. 

It was written by group leader Elliott Lurie about a former high school friend of his whose name was Randy although that name never worked quite right in the actual song.  Lurie described themselves as hard rockers whose on stage performance was high decibel and pretty raucous.  The song that catapulted them to the top was heavily overdubbed with strings and horns.  When people who came to see them because of  their hit song often went away disappointed because of the disparity of styles.  But for one brief moment in time they enjoyed being on top.  That moment came on August 26, 1972 when their one hit record reached number one in America – it’s Looking Glass with the song that might have been called Randy but to them “Brandy” sounded better.
