The 101 number one song of the day came from what was, essentially, a family act. But during the recording of this song something happened that would change the family forever. The group consisted of 3 brothers, their cousin and a high school friend. The band was managed by the brothers’ father who ruled with an iron hand. Problem was, one of the brothers was one with all the ideas and as he grew… (more…)

The 101 number one song of the day received high praise from the writer of the song it knocked out of the top spot – Neil Sedaka. This song’s writer was not a stranger to the attention but nevertheless was pleased by Sedaka’s remarks.  The year was 1975 and Neil had been on a roll with his own recording comeback as well as compositions for other musicians. His song for the Captain and Tennille, “Love Will Keep Us Together” had been ruling the Hot 100 for four weeks before giving way to the song that dethroned it this week of that year. Sedaka said of the new number one… (more…)

Today’s 101 #1 Song of the Day was the first U.S. Number one for the artist who performed it and it would go on to become the top selling single of 1984. The artist was asked to write a song for an upcoming rock musical drama – starring that very artist – the director wanted a song to match the theme of a particular segment in the film which involved intermingled parental difficulties and an affair. By the next morning he would have not one… (more…)

Today’s 101 #1 Song of the Day was initially only played on pirate radio stations because its lyrics were considered too suggestive…but it all started with the guitarist recording the opening riff in a hotel room. He said when he listened back to it in the morning, you could hear about 2 minutes of acoustic guitar and then 40 minutes of snoring – but he took the tape to his writing partner and soon they’d have their first number one in America… (more…)

The 101 number one song of the day was released as a single because of audience reaction when it was performed in clubs.  It was released in the middle of February, 1974 but by the middle March it was dead on the charts.  So what happened to revive the song and get it headed to the top?  (stick around and find out next on 101 Gold.)  Suddenly it sold 50,000 copies in New York City because it became a huge hit in dance clubs.  Then radio DJs were scrambling to get a copy to play on the air – again.  Once that happened it shot up to the top of the charts reaching number one during this week in 1974 for the – pretty much – one hit wonder… (more…)

The 101 number one song of the day got it start in the bathroom – not because of the acoustics but because its writer and singer was making toilet seats at the time. (More on that next) He was a late bloomer who was working for Boeing manufacturing the fixtures for 747s when he got his first record contract at age 32… (more…)

The 101 # 1 Song of the Day was a product of the “British Invasion” – not the one that began in 1964 – the other – much later one.  (more on that next)  This one was referred to as a “mini” invasion of the 80s.  With the new decade there came the new wave and bands from England were having a hard time gaining a foothold in the USA… (more…)

The 101 #1 Song of the Day was the only number one on Billboard’s Hot 100 for the group who performed it – but it was the number one song of all of 1983. Hear the rest of the story and the song next (at 6:40) on 101 Gold. The song’s writer said the song is “very, very sinister and ugly and people have actually misinterpreted it as being a gentle little love song, when it’s quite the opposite.” It was anything but love in the studio while the group was recording it… (more…)
