101 # 1 Song of the Day – 9-30-13

Listen for the replay to win 2 tickets to the Southern New Mexico State Fair.
The 101 number one song of the day was written especially for one half of a famous duo and the writer brought the song to their producer.  Problem is, the producer had just quit working with them out of frustration. 

He was Snuff Garrett and had helped the pair get back on the charts for the first time in several years but creative differences with the male member of the act brought the relationship to a premature end.  Lyricist Mary Dean didn’t know that when she told Garrett that the female member of the duo was the only person who could do it justice.  He agreed and started a process which would bring them back together.  Meanwhile, it was the beginning of the end for her and her former partner – both professionally and personally. And that brings us to the song that reached number one this week of October 1973 for Cher – without Sonny (Half Breed)
