Willie Nelson at the Abraham Chavez Theater in Downtown El Paso November 14th…win 2 tickets with the 101 # 1 Song of the Day Replay!

The 101 number one song of the day was never supposed to be released as a single; in fact, it was recorded as a joke while the group was putting together an album.  That joke turned into a huge hit.

Two of the group members were engaged to one another and because of the subject matter, the female half of the couple did a cover of a song written and recorded by Laura Nyro.  Because she was not an experienced lead singer, the producer had to make 22 splices to come up with a final version which was eventually included on the album.  The head of the record company charged with distribution refused to release it as a single until more and more radio stations started playing it.  And it kept climbing and climbing the charts until it landed on top this week in November, 1969 – It’s today’s 101 number one song of the day for the Fifth Dimension – Wedding Bell Blues – lead singer: Marilyn McCoo – engaged, at the time to Billy Davis, Jr.
