101 # 1 Song of the Day – 3-13-14

Comedian Paul Rodriguez is performing live this Saturday night at the Inn of the Mountain Gods.  You can win a pair of tickets with the 101 # 1 Song of the Day replay!

The 101 number one song of the day was the first British single to reach number one in America without making the chart in
its own country.  And for that there was a very good reason. 

It was never released as a single in Great Britain.  Over there, albums were usually released with more tracks than their American counterparts resulting in enough left over material to create interim patchwork LPs.  That was the case in today’s featured record which was on an album over there but on a different album over here where the decision was made to release it as a single and it was on top of the charts on March 13, 1965 for the Beatles

“Eight Days a Week”
