The 101 number one song of the day was pure child’s play – literally. It got to the top with vocals recorded by a group of second graders.   Ray Ragsdale wrote and produced the song as his first effort for his new label, Barnaby Records. To underscore the optimisn of the song, he took a portable tape recorder to his daughters’ school and arranged for her class to go to the auditorium and sing the chorus. They enjoyed the experience and America enjoyed the result. By June 10, 1970 it was the number one song on Billboard’s Hot 100 and it’s today’s 101 number one song of the day. By the way, by this time Ray changed his last name from Ragsdale to – Stevens. (Everything is Beautiful)

June 6, 2014: 101 number one song was the title cut to an album that was recorded in Lagos, Nigeria which was chosen for one reason and one reason only, but it turned out to be the wrong reason.

the 101 number one song was the title cut to an album that was recorded in Lagos, Nigeria which was chosen for one reason and one reason only, but it turned out to be the wrong reason.  The location was selected for its sunny climate. Unfortunately, the group arrived during the rainy season and it was wet and cloudy the whole time. To make matters worse, during a break from the studio, they were held up at knifepoint and robbed. Nevertheless, the album was completed and it produced several singles that proved to be big hits. But the biggest hit was its title cut and this week in 1974 it became the third number one hit Paul McCartney since the Beatles broke up. Here he is with Wings and today’s 101 number one song of the day. “Band on the Run”

June 9, 2014: The 101 Number One Song of the Day was recorded by a multitalented woman who would eventually earn several show business nicknames including one she hated, “The First Lady of Lust.”

 

The 101 Number One Song of the Day was recorded by a multitalented woman who would eventually earn several show business nicknames including one she hated, “The First Lady of Lust.”  That name came early in her career which actually began in Europe where she recorded several singles which were considered pretty erotic. Another name she disliked was Disco’s Aphrodite. She began to hate the image so much she developed ulcers and wound up in the hospital for a time and eventually she went back to Europe to chill out but eventually returned to the states to resume her career which continued to grow in the late seventies and early eighties. She was also known as the Queen of Disco and on June 9, 1979 she was at number one for the second time with a song her boss at the record label wanted Cher to record but Donna Summer wanted it for herself and so it is today’s 101 Number One Song of the Day – “Hot Stuff”

The 101 number one song of the day was written and sung by a self confessed introvert whose songs were almost always based on personal experience. Although he was too modest to admit it, he had tremendous influence on many of rock’s biggest stars.   He was born in Vernon, Texas and grew up in Wink. His father gave him a guitar when he was six years old. By the time he was eight, he was playing on a Sunday morning country show on KVWC in Kermit. He almost gave away his first national hit to Elvis and the Everly Brothers. He arrived at Graceland at 6 in the morning and nobody was out of bed yet. Elvis sent down word that they could meet later in the day in Nashville. There he ran into Phil Everly and played him the song he’d written with his writing partner Joe Melson. Phil played him one of his own songs not realizing that today’s featured artist was playing him a song for the Everly Brothers to record. He was too shy to bring it up and Elvis hadn’t showed so he decided to record it himself. Shortly thereafter, he wrote today’s number one song in slightly more time than it took to record it. It arrived at number one June 5, 1961 – for Roy Orbison – “Running Scared”

In the first six months of 1964 only one American group had a number one song in the U.S.   As to which group that was – the answer might surprise you – the 101 number one song of the day is next) They were three women who were discovered by the famed production and writing team of Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller. They came across a song that was written for the Ronettes by Jeff Barry, Ellie Greenwich and Phil Spector. Leiber and Stoller wanted to have their new trio record the song but Phil Spector objected to the idea. No matter – they went ahead with their plan anyway and it became a huge hit – sitting atop the American charts on June 4, 1964 for the – Dixie Cups (Chapel of Love)

June 3rd, 2014: The 101 number one song of the day was instrumental in transforming a woman who had spent six years going nowhere while recording show tunes into rock and roll royalty.

 

101 number one song of the day was instrumental in transforming a woman who had spent six years going nowhere while recording show tunes into rock and roll royalty.  She had been under contract to Columbia Records where lush orchestral arrangements did nothing to take her considerable talents and turn her into a star. A producer at Atlantic Records – Jerry Wexler – was sure she’d connect with the public if only she abandoned the Broadway stuff and return to her roots in gospel music. It was that kind of style and energy that would unleash her rather remarkable vocal powers and get her the respect she deserved. And as it just so happens, the late great Otis Redding had written just the right song that would complete the transformation from show tune singer to the person who would become the Queen of Soul. And so it is…the 101 number one song of the day rose to the top of the charts on June 3, 1967 for Aretha Franklin. (Respect)

June 2, 2014: 101 number one song of the day was a surprise hit for everyone involved but mostly for the person who sang it. In fact, after it was recorded, she never expected to hear it again.

 

101 number one song of the day was a surprise hit for everyone involved but mostly for the person who sang it. In fact, after it was recorded, she never expected to hear it again. It was a demo she did for music legend Quincy Jones who, at the time, had yet to achieve that vaunted status. He was a staff producer for Mercury Records who happened to hear today’s featured artist during her band’s very first paying gig. He liked what he heard and asked her to come in and lay down a couple of tracks but expectations were not very high. In fact, she was told that record companies often let these things sit on the shelf indefinitely. But as it so happened, one of the songs she recorded that day was about to be released by a rival record company and so Mercury rushed her single out to radio stations in NYC. A mere six days after she sang the song for the first time, she heard it on one of those stations and she almost drove off the road. It was then offered for wide release and it quickly climbed the charts. It arrived at the top on June 1, 1963 and became Quincy Jones first number one song. And the seventeen year old who recorded it, found herself with many more paying gigs from that time on. Here’s your 101 number one song of the day for Leslie Gore. “It’s My Party”

May 30, 2014: 101 number one song of the day was described by its creator as “happy and sad” at the same time. What he actually said was, “the song was a happy accident, because I was so damned sad.”

 

101 number one song of the day was described by its creator as “happy and sad” at the same time. What he actually said was, “the song was a happy accident, because I was so damned sad.”  He was singing in a small club in Alabama at the time but one night, after he had just been dumped by his girlfriend, he could not bring himself to sing his regular repertoire of Beatles and Smokey Robinson songs. So he asked his bassist Cameron Lewis and organist Arthur Wright to play something in any key. With that, he proceeded to pour his heart out in song right there on stage. The result would become a number one song and a huge payday for Lewis and Wright who were given complete writing credit by a very generous Percy Sledge. It was number one on May 30th, 1966 – “When a Man Loves a Woman”

May 29, 2014: The 101 Number One Song of the Day was an Oscar winning song with a title that doesn’t appear anywhere in the lyrics so they gave it a second title.

 

It was written and performed by a woman whose two biggest hits were title songs to movie. In the first she had a prominent role in the movie which went on to be a TV show although she did not play that part when it went to the small screen. But the movie role made her an international star. She did not have a role in the second movie but was happy to help write and perform the title song which was number one on May 29th, the 1983 and went on to win the Academy Award for the year’s best song in a movie – Flashdance – it’s Irene Cara – and the second title “oh what a feeling.”

May 28, 2014: The 101 number one song of the day was the first released by its band’s self titled album and it was controversial – but no one was really sure what it was about – so the question remained just who should be offended.

The 101 number one song of the day was the first released by its band’s self titled album and it was controversial – but no one was really sure what it was about – so the question remained just who should be offended.  It was recorded in December 1969 at the famous studios in Muscle Shoals, Alabama by a band once reviled as too scruffy and dirty for decent folk, but by the turn of the decade they became the ruling rock elite, gentlemen of leisure and members of the Jet Set. The first record released on their own label was simultaneously interpreted as a racist, sexist slur as well as referring to Mexican heroin. The vocals were somewhat scrambled following the advice of Fats Domino who once said, “You should never sing the words out very clearly.” In any event it was clearly destined to be a hit and on May 30, 1971 it was the number one song in America – for the Rolling Stones “Brown Sugar.”
