The 101 number one song of the day was recorded by a group so new -it didn’t have a name. So one of the members suggested they have a contest. The contest never came off but the suggestion itself got them the name you know them by. They were working at a Memphis studio recording the song you’re about to hear. If it was going to be released, they had to call themselves something so during a break, according to songwriter Wayne Carson Thompson, somebody piped up with the comment, “Well, let’s have a contest and everybody can send in fifty cents and – a box top” On September 23rd, 1967 (The Letter) was number one in America.

September 22, 2014: The 101 Number One Song of the Day was written, produced and performed by the self proclaimed “Prophet of Love.”

The 101 Number One Song of the Day was written, produced and performed by the self proclaimed “Prophet of Love.” When he was only 11 years old he played piano on the classic 50s hit “Goodnight My Love” by Jesse Belvin. And then he grew up and – out to about 300 pounds. Despite his girth, his half sung, half spoken baritone quickly established him as a romantic figure – if not in person, at least in the background. During this week in September, in the year 1974 his biggest hit became number one in America for Barry White. (Can’t Get Enough of Your Love, Babe)

She was no stranger to success. In fact, she had amassed an incredible 12 number one hits as part of a group. That number was more than anybody but the Beatles and Elvis. But now she was on her own and she was nervous about beginning this new phase of her career. Although she was already famous for her singing voice, her producers were captivated by her speaking voice and so the original version of the song was rearranged to capitalize on her full vocal range. The result reached number one on September 19, 1970 for the now solo Diana Ross (Ain’t No Mountain High Enough)

September 18, 2014: The 101 Number One Song of the Day was co-written by John Lennon but Paul McCartney had nothing to do with it. It was the product of a former mime who changed his birth name so he wouldn’t be confused with one of the Monkees.

David Robert Jones was born on Elvis’ 12th birthday and by his own 12th birthday he was already deeply interested in music and was studying the saxophone. As he grew he became more interested in combining theatrics with his music. Eventually he came to be known as the ultimate chameleon of rock because of his constant changes in musical styles. With the help of John Lennon who can be heard singing on the end of today’s song, and guitarist Carlos Alamor, he came up with the song which reached number one this week in September, 1975. By this time, David Jones had changed his last name to Bowie – after the knife, he said. The song: “Fame”

The 101 number one song of the day was recorded by a group that wanted to play hard rock but the crowd kept calling for something else. They gave ‘em what they wanted and got a huge hit in the bargain. The year was 1976 and a new musical age was dawning. The group was just getting started and they kept on getting gigs at discos. They’d start out playing their kind of music but the crowds had something else in mind. Finally, their leader, Bob Parissi grabbed a bar order pad and scribbled down some words. The song not only delighted the live audience, it took the new group right to the top of the American charts and during this week in 1976 it was the number one station in the land. And the call from the crowd: “Play that Funky Music, White Boy” (Wild Cherry)

It was the theme song for a box office flop by the name of Summer Lovers. Even though it was their first big hit in a few years it appeared destined to stay stuck at number five where it held for 4 straight weeks. But finally during this week in 1982, it jumped up to number one and the comeback was on its way for Chicago and the song is “Hard to Say I’m Sorry.”

The 101 number one song of the day was the first of many for a group who once auditioned for a job in a bowling alley in New Jersey. They didn’t get the job but they did take something that would stay with them forever – a new name. The song made them an overnight success. But their distinctive lead singer had been toiling away for over a decade working with first the Varity Trio, then the Variatones and by the time they tried out for the Bowling Alley gig, they called themselves the Four Lovers. While that job failed to materialize, they decided to get something for the effort and so they took the name of the lanes as their new name – The place was called – the Four Seasons and they were on their way to number one – landing there on this week in 1962 with (Sherry)

September 12, 2014: The 101 number one song of the day was recorded by a man who, to use his own words, was the kid, “that used to get stones thrown at him because he was so thin and couldn’t do physical training very well.” But what he could do very well was play the guitar.

The 101 number one song of the day was recorded by a man who, to use his own words, was the kid, “that used to get stones thrown at him because he was so thin and couldn’t do physical training very well.” But what he could do very well was play the guitar. As a teenager he was drafted by the Yardbirds to play lead. Disillusioned with what he perceived as their abandonment of hardcore blues, he quit. Later he formed the group Cream, then Blind Faith and still later Derek and the Dominoes. But the song that he took to the top of the charts this week in 1974 was written by reggae genius Bob Marley and recorded under his own name – Eric Clapton and it’s today’s 101 number one song of the day “I Shot the Sheriff”

September 11, 2014: The 101 number one song of the day was written in response to a United States Supreme Court ruling from 1954. 18 years after the decision was handed down it became a hit.

The 101 number one song of the day was written in response to a United States Supreme Court ruling from 1954. 18 years after the decision was handed down it became a hit. The song was first recorded by Sammy Davis, Jr. in the late 50s and in 1971 a Jamaican Reggae group called “Greyhound” did a version of it. The group that took it to number one heard the Greyhound single on a Dutch radio station while they were touring Europe. They condensed the words somewhat and the verse, “Their robes were black/Their heads were white/The school house doors were closed so tight/Nine judges all set down their names/To end the years and years of shame.” The high court decision which the song commemorates banned segregation in public schools and the song which was number one this week in 1972 belonged to Three Dog Night (Black and White)

The 101 number one song of the day was the title song to a movie but more importantly, according to the song’s writer, it was a cry for help. He said it was his “Fat Elvis” period, although at the time, Elvis had yet to gain all that weight. But, looking back, he said, the character in the movie was himself. “I was very fat, very insecure and felt that I’d lost myself.” And although most thought it was just a fast rock ‘n’ roll song, the single that was number one in America on September 9th, 1965 was literally John Lennon’s cry for (HELP!)
