101 # 1 Song of the Day – 11-27-13

Listen for the replay to win two tickets to the Trans Siberian Orchestra at the Pan Am Center on December 2nd.


The 101 number one song of the day generated over 150 cover versions and the writer’s personal favorite was done by James Brown.  It was one of those rare two sided charttoppers.

The writer said, “In my mind, I heard Ray Charles singing it and Charles actually did do a version of it several years later.  Smokey Robinson also did a cover of it.  But the most successful version was done by the group that the writer himself belonged to and it was that version that rose to number one during this week in November, 1969 – The other side was “Come Together” written by John Lennon but this was written by George Harrison –  “Something”
