Posted in 101 #1 Song of The Day, Your Morning Show

July 22, 2014: The 101 number one song of the day was recorded by a duo who very early in their career recorded a song about a little girl who would one day grow up to marry a rock and roll superstar. That was not what the song was about – that was what happened in real life.

 

 

 

The 101 number one song of the day was recorded by a duo who very early in their career recorded a song about a little girl who would one day grow up to marry a rock and roll superstar. That was not what the song was about – that was what happened in real life.  Back to that in a moment…but first, these two guys got started in their high school gym because of the great echo for singing. They started touring in California and the Beach Boys – who were a self contained band – backed them up. They collaborated with Brian Wilson who co-wrote today’s featured song. But before that they recorded a song written in 1944 by Jack Lawrence about the baby daughter of a friend. Her name was Linda – Linda Eastman who would grow up to marry Paul McCartney. That proved to be an interesting footnote but not a hit. But on July 22, 1963 they had a huge hit when it reached number one for Jan and Dean “Surf City”
