101 Number One Song of the Day was recorded by a group about to disband. They were going to give it one more try in the studio and then go their separate ways. What happened next turned their careers around and left America with a symbol that is as popular today than it was then.

The song was inspired by a true story about a man returning home from prison. When the demo was played for the group, two of the three singers thought it had hit written all over it but the third thought it was pretty corny. However, he couldn’t get the song out of his head and pretty soon, his opinion changed. They recorded the song and instead of disbanding they ended up getting a network TV show. Plus America got a lasting symbol of homecoming. The 101 number song of the day for April 18 – the year is 1973 and Dawn is the group. (Tie a Yellow Ribbon Around)

 The 101 number one song of the day, originally entitled “The Happy Song” was written by a man whose mother also wrote a number one tune.  That never
happened before – or since. 

 

Hoyt Axton set out to write a song for a children’s animated TV special which never got produced.  Later he presented the song to a group he was touring with at the time as an opening act.  They had mixed reactions.  Some liked it, others didn’t,  but they decided to record it anyway.  Then it was Axton’s turn for mixed reactions…he didn’t particularly care for the results and was sure that it would not be a hit.  As it turned out, it became the biggest hit for the entire year.  Exactly 15 years earlier, his mother Mae’s song “Heartbreak Hotel” became Elvis’ first number one.  Now it was the son’s turn and on April 17, 1971 it arrived at the top of Billboard’s Top 100 for Three Dog Night “Joy to the World.”

Almost everyone from that generation will remember the epic battle of the sexes that was successfully waged for womankind by Billie Jean King.  She was not only an inspiration to many of her gender, she was also an inspiration for a number one song.
