Today’s 101 #1 Song of the Day was one of the last 45 RPM singles to receive a million-selling gold certification. And it was originally intended to be a duet with Chaka Khan but her record label refused to let her work with today’s featured artist’s label! Hear the rest of the story and the song next on 101 Gold…She did still get credit on the album’s liner notes. The video for the song featured pale-faced women all dressed alike with dark eye makeup… (more…)

Today’s 101 #1 Song of the Day was from a performer who was just the third British woman to score a number one on the U.S. Hot 100…and her singing career was launched with a reality show in 1979…hear more next on 101 Gold. It was a tutor at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama at Glasgow who convinced her to audition for the show – she had been working toward becoming a speech and drama teacher during the day and was singing in clubs at night. She sang her audition for the other two British women who’d scored number ones in the U.S. up to that point … (more…)

101 number one song of the day was the second song of the rock era to become number one twice by different artists and both of the songs were written by the same husband and wife team. (That’s next)  Carole King and Gerry Goffin first accomplished the feat with their song “Go Away Little Girl” which reached the top of the charts for Steve Lawrence and later Donny Osmond…. (more…)

The 101 number one song of the day got to the top with the help of searing solo guitar work by Eddie Van Halen who did it for free.  (the song is coming up next)  He said, “I didn’t care, I did it as a favor.”  The man who wrote and recorded the song was so multi-talented that none other than the master of dance Fred Astaire, who lived in the same neighborhood when the performer was just a little kid said, “He is a wonderful mover… (more…)

Today’s 101 #1 Song of the day was written by a former roadie for Neil Diamond…and Neil Diamond passed on it! But Neil’s drummer thought it was a good song and later suggested it to two brothers who were self-trained musicians and they would take it to number one…hear the song next on 101 Gold. (more…)

The 101 number song of the day was a sequel to an earlier hit song for the duo that sang it – an interesting note about the duo…the male half was a constant through the years but there were seven different women who’ve played the other part…and they were all referred to by the same nickname – you’ll find out what that name was and hear the song next on 101 Gold. The duo was referred to as the “sweethearts of soul” after a string of hits in the late 40’s! Then they disbanded and the male half, Herbert Feemster, joined the police academy in Washington D.C. – (more…)

The 101 number song of the day is a song which is tied for the shortest title ever to make it to the top.  What’s more, it featured one of the shortest lead singers to rule the Hot 100.  (It’s next)  It was produced by former schoolteacher Freddie Perren and this particular song sounded just like a lesson in class.  And that’s the way Perren approached all his recording sessions saying… (more…)

Today’s 101 #1 Song of the Day was originally title “Once I Had Love” – the writers referred to it as “the disco song” – and they tried recording it between 1975 and 1978 as a ballad, as reggae, giving it a more pop feel – but nothing worked so they shelved it and later, when they met with a producer to start work on an album, they played all their other songs for the producer and at the end he askes “have you got anything else?” (more…)

101 number one song of the day had the longest title ever to reach the top but the singer’s memory of the recording session was very short (more on that next) at the time he was spending upwards of $3000 a week to feed a drug habit that included valium, cocaine and amphetamines and looking back at that period he wonders that he was still alive.  Shortly after the song reached number one, he had an epiphany, cleaned himself up and spent the next several years singing gospel music for which he earned five grammies… (more…)
