Today’s 101 #1 Song of the Day was written by a member of the singer’s back up band on the last day of 1973 – which happened to be the singer’s 30th birthday. The story is he wrote it WHILE he was driving from his home in Aspen to L.A. John Martin Sommers said he was just feeling pretty good about things in his life at the time…hear the rest of the story next on 101 Gold. it was included on an album in 1974 but it wasn’t until it was released as a live version the following year that it shot to number one… (more…)

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.  (That’s next) 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… (more…)

The 101 number one song of the day was the first release from the artist’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.  (more on that next)  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 …or was it referring to Mexican heroin?!!? … (more…)

The 101 number one song of the day was sung by a guy who quit his band to be a dentist and getting him to rejoin the group was like pulling teeth.   The group had a few hits but he was sure they’d hang it up after a few months of moderate success.  His future, he was sure, was rooted in root canal.  So he left the west coast to head east and pursue that career… (more…)

We get some Mouth to Mouth with the 101 #1 Song of the Day today…that was the name of the album it came from! And the song held a record for being #1 in more countries than any other song from 1980 to 2005! It had hit number one in 28 different nations. It wasn’t until Madonna’s “Hung Up” hit #1 in 41 different countries in 2005 that the record fell. When the song was written, the one hit wonder group lived in Minneapolis but they had dreams of moving to the Big Apple, where they could “keep moving”… (more…)

Today’s 101 #1 Song of the Day comes from an artist whose name is reflected in his appearance and it was because of his appearance that he was forced to take special education classes in Beaumont, Texas, where he was born. The song got its name because it was chopped up and pieced back together …and ended up a lot different than its original incarnation and it was actually never even intended to be on the album – it was added at the last minute on a whim…hear the rest of the story and the song next on 101 Gold. The performer in question said the song, originally titled “The Double Drum Song”, had a monster-like, lumberingbeat… (more…)

The 101 #1 song of the day was a big payoff for a group that struggled for years after they lost their record deal and their name right around the same time.  (It’s next)  The quintet was formed in Chicago in 1960 and were signed by Mercury.  Their first single, “Pots and Pots” failed to clean up.  They were dropped from the label and had to relinquish the name they were using because another group had first claim to it… (more…)

101 number one song of the day was inspired by a busy schedule.  The guys who wrote it had trouble making time… to make time (the story and the song is coming up next)  the year was 1967 and Felix Cavaliere and Eddie Brigati were enjoying their success as leaders of a hot new band out of New York City.  The only downside was… (more…)

Today’s 101 #1 Song of the Day was a record breaker…just before the breakup of the band that performed it. In fact, another artist was brought into the recording sessions partly in hopes that would deter them from bickering so much; and one member of the band said a line in the song was a pot shot at his wife!…hear the rest of the story and the song next on 101 Gold. Let’s start with the record it broke in 1969. That was Elvis’s record for the most #1’s with 16. Let’s move on to the band’s impending breakup – this would be their penultimate (second to last) #1… (more…)

The 101 number one song of the day was recorded by a “one hit wonder” who became a preacher at the tender age of seven years old.  (and it’s next)  James McCleese was born in Harlem but his parents moved to a farm in rural North Carolina shortly after his birth.  He grew up listening to circuit riding and preachers and his natural showmanship led to his moving into the pulpit at that very young age… (more…)
