Posted in 101 #1 Song of The Day, Your Morning Show

Listen for the replay to win two tickets to November 10’s “Look Who’s Dancing” in the Pan Am Center.  You’ll also win two tickets to the VIP party after the show at Azul.


The 101 number one song of the day is a love song.  But it is a very different love song because it does not express love for another human being –rather it is for an animal. 

And it happens to be about an animal that very few of us would consider the least bit lovable. It’s the title song to a horror movie about an ailing youngster who somehow befriends the leader of a killer gang.  Authorities are intent on wiping out the gang but the kid wants to protect the leader and he composes a song about their relationship.  The movie was a hit and so, obviously, was the song that was number one during this week in October, 1972 – it was a song about a rat – named “Ben”  –Michael Jackson
