The 101 number one song of the day was a one hit wonder by a guy who, in actuality, had a whole string of hits.  How can that be? 

It was recorded by a man who had lots of success recording other people’s compositions and covering songs that were already hits for someone else.  He had so much success, in fact, that he was afraid to record something he had written himself but eventually he took the gamble and it not only became the only hit he ever wrote himself, it became his biggest hit ever and his only charttopper.  And on November 14, 1966 it was the number one song in the land – for Johnny Rivers – “Poor Side of Town.”
