Before today’s 101 number one song of the day there was rock music and there was folk music but after its release a whole new genre was created that influenced and spawned a generation of musicians and supergroups which included Crosby, Stills and Nash; the Eagles, the Flying Burrito Brothers and more. The impetus for the change was electrifying a Bob Dylan song with a 12 string Rickenback guitar. Jim McGuinn was inspired to get his first electric 12 string after he saw George Harrison play one in A Hard Day’s Night. McGuinn formed a group with friends Gene Clark, David Crosby and others. Oddly enough, the only member of the group you’re about to hear that actually recorded today’s featured song was McGuinn because of a lack of studio time. Producer Terry Melcher – son of actress Doris Day – hired the best studio musicians of the day which included Glen Campbell and Leon Russell in order to hasten the process. The result was the first folk rock song and a number one song for a new group which reached the top on June 26, 1965 for the Byrds “Mr Tambourine Man.”

June 25, 2014: When the 101 number one song of the day reached the top it was the third straight number one song for a guy from a family that was dominating the charts like no other family had ever dominated the charts. Plus it was only the third single he had ever released. No other solo act had ever had his first three singles go to number one.

 

When the 101 number one song of the day reached the top it was the third straight number one song for a guy from a family that was dominating the charts like no other family had ever dominated the charts. Plus it was only the third single he had ever released. No other solo act had ever had his first three singles go to number one.

He was the youngest brother of a musical family that not only cranked out numbers ones for themselves but their compositions that others recorded were getting there also. Yvonne Elliman took one of their songs to number one and a couple of months after today’s featured single reached the top, Frankie Valli ruled the charts with another one of their songs. But on June 25th, 1978 the song that would be heading the Billboard Top 100 for seven weeks and would go on to be the biggest seller for the entire year was one by Andy Gibb. And this is it: Shadow Dancing.

June 24, 2014:  The 101 number one song of the day was recorded almost by accident by a man named Gary Anderson who got his stage name pretty much the same way.

 

The 101 number one song of the day was recorded almost by accident by a man named Gary Anderson who got his stage name pretty much the same way.  He was working with called the Church Street five on an instrumental single, “A Night with Daddy G” and by all accounts the session wasn’t going to well. After everyone had more than enough to drink, they just started to jam and then Gary started working in some lyrics. Although many rock historians claim the resulting song was recorded by accident, Gary did say that he deliberately turned on the tape recorder and they just let things develop from there. As for the stage name, he was surprised to see it show up on his first record, “New Orleans” but he was an unknown at the time and the studio was next store to a delicatessen where his producer, Frank Guida, often ate. The owner of the deli was a strong believer in Uncle Sam and had numerous posters on the wall urging patrons to buy savings bonds. And that brings us to the song that was number one this week in June 1961 for the newly name Gary “U.S. Bonds” – A Quarter to Three.

June 23, 2014: The 101 number one song of the day was written by the most successful female songwriter of all time. She wrote songs for others because she once said, “She didn’t want to become a star.” But she did become a star – a big star.

 

The 101 number one song of the day was written by the most successful female songwriter of all time. She wrote songs for others because she once said, “She didn’t want to become a star.”  She had great success writing for such artists as Bobby Vee (Take Good Care of My Baby) the Drifters (Up on the Roof) Aretha Franklin (A Natural Woman) and “I’m into something Good” by Herman’s Hermits. This list goes on and on. But, in 1971, she recorded an album of her own material and stardom was inevitable – whether she liked it or not. The album would be number one for 15 weeks and it produced a two sided single with both songs at number one on June 23rd of that year. The LP was entitled Tapestry and the songs were “It’s Too Late and this one (I Feel the earth Move) Carole King

June 20, 2014: the 101 number one song of the day was the only number one single to have two different versions of the same song, by the same artists to be on Billboard’s Hot 100 at the same time.

 

101 number one song of the day was the only number one single to have two different versions of the same song, by the same artists to be on Billboard’s Hot 100 at the same time.  It was recorded by a man/woman act who both worked for a time for the Beach Boys – she as a backup singer and piano player and he played all the other keyboards during their tour. When the tour ended, they began working together as a duo. They recorded their first album entirely in Spanish and one of the songs was written by Neil Sedaka. Later they released an English version of that same song which was number one in America on June 20th, 1975. When the Spanish version was released as a single shortly thereafter it became the only occasion when two versions of a number one single were on the same chart at the same time and the Captain and Tonille were the ones to do it with “Love Will Keep Us Together.”

June 19, 2014:  The 101 number one song of the day was the last of its kind. There were 19 of these before but there would never be another after this one. And it was released over the objections of it creator.

 
The 101 number one song of the day was the last of its kind. There were 19 of these before but there would never be another after this one. And it was released over the objections of it creator. Only two of the four members of this group were in the studio for its recording. It was sung as a solo, backed only by a piano and bass guitar. It was then forwarded to Phil Spector who dubbed in a violin and horn section and then added choir. When the song’s writer heard the final version, he was stunned. He hated it and tried to get ahold of Spector to demand that it be restored to its original version. He was unable to get that done and the record was released over the most strenuous objections of – Paul McCartney. Nevertheless it became the Beatles’ 20th and last number one song this week in June 1970 – “The Long and Winding Road”

June 18, 2014: The 101 number one song of the Day was recorded by a group whose lead singer was unhappy with the results but a little white lie helped to get the record to the top of the charts.

 

The 101 number one song of the Day was recorded by a group whose lead singer was unhappy with the results but a little white lie helped to get the record to the top of the charts.  The four members were friends growing up in Detroit. They played ball together but didn’t sing together. In fact, they each sang with different groups until one night at a party they started jamming and realized they made a great time. They called themselves the Four Aims but at the time, the Ames Brothers were popular and it was suggested that they come up with a different name and I’ll get back to that in a moment but first that white lie – after a couple of takes of the song you’re about to hear, the producer Brian Holland thought they had it perfect but the lead singer, Levi Stubbs, didn’t like what he heard and insisted on doing more takes. Their session time was up and Holland told Stubbs he could try again the next day. What he didn’t tell him was there were not sessions scheduled for the following day so the record was released as is for the group formerly known as the Four Aims who took their initial name because they were aiming for the top – as a result – they took the name the Four Tops – this song was number one this week of June, 1965 – (I can’t help myself)

The 101 number one song of the day was produced by the legendary George Martin who had a knack for getting to the top with British musicians but things were a little different with this group of… army brats. Three friends got together to start their group while attending London’s Central High School. But these guys had little in common with the rest of the rock and rollers coming out of England. They weren’t English. But they were certainly influenced by the music scene there and after several successful albums, they enlisted the aid of the producer who helped to mold the Beatles. George Martin had heard they took a long time to complete an LP and he was worried that it would take a long time to complete their work together. But they were determined to impress their new producer so they went into heavy rehearsals before going into the studio and when they did, their work was completed in two weeks. Today’s 101 number one song of the day came from their followup album and this time Martin was happy to work with them. The album was called Hearts and its biggest single was number one on June 17, 1975 for the sons of American Army officers – America – and this is it “Sister Golden Hair”

The 101 number one song of the day was produced and recorded by an Anglo American band that was immersed in tremendous upheaval. Just when personal relationships were disintegrating, the group came together to achieve its greatest commercial success.   The album which spawned today’s featured song was number one for 31 weeks. The band was formed in 1967 but had undergone many personnel changes over close to a decade. The keyboard player was separating from her husband – the bass player; the drummer was being divorced from another woman he would later remarry and the lead guitarist was breaking up with the lead singer after an eight year relationship. Despite all this turmoil they scored their only number one single this week in June, 1977 – Fleetwood Mac “Dreams”

The 101 number one song of the day was the fifth consecutive number one song by the only American group to achieve that feat.   Shortly after it reached number one the group achieved status that reflected the ultimate crossover – headlining at one of American’s top venues – the Copacabana in New York City. Critics loved the show as much as the opening night audience. Said the leader of the group: “It was the beginning of everything for us. We made it where it really counted…at the Copa. And here with their fifth consecutive number one which ruled the charts on June 13, 1965 are the Supremes – Back in My Arms Again.
