101 # 1 Song of the Day – 12-2-13

Listen for the replay and win!


The 101 number one song of the day was the beginning of the end for one of the sixties media phenomena which at the timewas in open rebellion. 

Mounting criticism of their failure to play their own instruments and frustration over lack of creative control over their own careers led one of the members of this group to criticize Screen Gems which had tightly controlled their destiny from the beginning.  In fact Michael Nesmith, who was a genuine musician and songwriter, was so angry about their situation that he put his fist through a door and told a record exec who suggested he could be suspended that the door could have been his face.  The controls were loosened but by this time, the end was near for their TV show and the song that was number one on December 2, 1967 would be their next to last top ten hit – It’s your 101 number one song of the day from the Monkees (Daydream Believer)
