The 101 number one song of the day was the title cut to an album that started a feud between one of the band members and the daughter of a U.S. president.  She, at one time, was living with another member of the band, Bernie Leadon, and in an interview with the Las Vegas Sun newspaper about a song they had written together which was included on the album.   She was quoted as saying… (more…)

Today’s 101 #1 Song of the Day came from an artist who’s pretty well-known for soundtrack songs and today’s featured single was one of them…it was the number three single of 1980 behind Blondie’s “Call Me” and Pink Floyd’s “Another Brick in the Wall” and stayed at number one for four weeks… (more…)

Today’s 101 #1 Song of the Day was the final number one for a group that had 8 previous chart toppers in the U.S. and 15 top ten singles and it was quite a departure for the group because it was …dundundun – DISCO! It would be the first time the group would release a dance mix – and the writer called it a damn good disco record and said it was calculated to be one as it was heavily influenced by what was going on in the discos…the year was 1978 and Mick Jagger wrote the tune while jamming with Billy Preston. Here’s the Rolling Stones’ last U.S. number one song – “Miss You”

The 101 number one song of the day was recorded by the very first artist signed by the Beatles’ Apple Records and he happened to be an American. He’d go on to have a huge career but this was his only number one hit. The song was written by Carole King who said that “It was one of those moments when I sat down at the piano and it wrote itself from some place other than me.” She was the opening act in the spring of 1971 for the artist you’re about to here who by this time had left England and Apple records but he was still working with the man who had signed him to Apple… (more…)

The 101 number one song of the day was written and recorded by a one time lounge singer who used the name Bill Martin to prove to the world he was more than a pop crooner. Up to this time he’d had several hits but this song came from an album that was specifically designed to “throw a rock at the image people had of (him.)” Not all the critics liked the result but the public sure did and it gave the man his first number one single. On July 29, 1980 he was using his given name – Billy Joel and this is the song “It’s Still Rock and Roll To Me.”

Today’s 101 #1 Song of the Day was the title track to an album released on the Virgin records label – but BMI later added songwriting credit to Motown writers Holland-Dozier-Holland because it sounded a little too much like a 1966 Junior Walker song  – think you know from that what our featured single is?  (more…)

Today’s 101 #1 Song of the Day was inspired when the artist was speaking to a stained glass class with his friend Garry and his girlfriend – he wanted to use Garry’s name in the song but decided he better change it – so he picked the name that he had on a football jersey he was wearing… (more…)

The 101 number one song of the day was the biggest hit recorded by a band that came to national prominence after they were signed to be regulars on Dick Clark’s daily afternoon music show. And no – it wasn’t American Bandstand. The series debuted in the summer of ‘65 (Where the Action IS) and the group went on to have nine top 20 hits before the decade was over…

Although they were primarily known as a sixties band, their biggest hit came in the seventies. It was also their last top 20 hit. It reached the top of the charts on July 24, 1971 for the group once known as Paul Revere and the Raiders but now shortened to “The Raiders” and the song: Indian Reservation.

Today’s 101 #1 Song of the Day was performed on the Ed Sullivan Show and that performance would solidify the band as one-time guests. See, they were asked to change a line in the song because it was thought to be a reference to drug use – they agreed and even did the alternate line in rehearsal but the singer sang the original line live on stage. The line was supposed to be “Girl, we couldn’t get much better” – but Jim Morrison pulled a fast one and sang it the way it was written…and when the performance was over, Ed refused to shake Jim’s hand – they were told they’d never again do the show and Jim said to that – “we just did Ed Sullivan” Number one on this day in 1967 were The Doors with “Light My Fire” ***buick commercial “Come on Buick, light my fire”

Today’s 101 #1 Song of the Day was written by Daryl Hall and recorded by Hall and Oates but it did not become a hit until about 5 years later when it was recorded by an 80’s teen idol who had been the front man for short-lived bands like Kat Kool and the Kool Kats, Streetband and the Q-Tips…but the year before his big hit, he almost suffered a career-ending blow. Hear the rest of the story and the song next on 101 Gold. It was 1984 and he had been on a heavy promotional tour of the U.S. His vocal chords became so strained that couldn’t sing for most of the year. But by the following year, he had recovered and recorded his only number one song – the Hall and Oates tune “Every Time You Go Away” – here’s Paul Young with your 101 #1 Song of the Day.
