Today’s 101 #1 Song of the Day was done a few times before today’s featured artist got a hold of it. Dee Dee Warwick did it in 1963 – so did Betty Everett. Then the following year the Swingin’ Blue Jeans did it…it was pretty good (despite its title) and that’s why our featured artist started playing it live!  When recording an album in 1974 it was added at the last minute, at the singer’s suggestion and the producer, Peter Asher, said it was an odd coincidence because he loved the song done by the Swingin’ Blue Jeans. The record label didn’t decide to release it as the first single from the album, “Heart Like a Wheel” until a week after the album’s release in November of 1974 and by February 16th, 1975, it was #1 in America for Linda Ronstadt “You’re No Good” is your 101 #1 Song of the Day.
