his name. Who did he become? Barry White

Today’s 101 #1 Song of the Day almost didn’t become a #1 because “Every Breath You Take” by The Police hogged up the top spot for eight straight weeks in 1983…today’s featured single was stuck at #2 but it hung on long enough to move up when the time came partly because of the singers’ androgynous look in the music video…

The 101 #1 Song of the Day was intended for the Temptations – but Motown execs thought it might be too controversial for some of their more conservative fans and so they gave it to one of their “second stringers”…an artist they picked up when they bought his label Ric-Tic in 1968…

The 101 number one song of the day was a mixed blessing for the one time bar band that got its start at New Jersey’s Rutgers University. People who liked the song usually didn’t like the concert the group performed. It was written by group leader Elliott Lurie about a former high school friend of his whose name was Randy although that name never worked quite right in the actual song…

The 101 number one song of the day was the ninth try for a group of girls signed by Motown. Their 8 previous attempts all failed on the charts and the other artists on the label had started making fun of their inability to produce a hit. Today’s featured song was written for the Marvellettes but lead singer Gladys Horton said, “no way am I gonna sing any junk like!” The song was passed around down the line until it was offered to the group you’re about to hear and because they were low down on the totem pole… (more…)

Today’s 101 #1 Song of the Day comes from a one hit wonder…and that may be because the sound of the song was nothing like the sound of the group – they wanted to be a beatlesque band but their new bassist added a Motown-like bass line to the song which gave it a funky feel and they’d take it to number one.  After that, they didn’t know how to get back to what they wanted to do so one founding member left after recording one more album. The song that made the group famous was originally done by Hot Chocolate… (more…)

Today’s 101 #1 Song of the Day was written by a duo while they were vacationing in Brazil over New Year’s to ring in 1969. One of them said it was originally meant to be a real Hank Williams/ Jimmie Rodgers 1930’s country song – but he said their newest member gave it a different feel; threw it off the wall the other way…  (more…)
