The 101 number one song of the day was recorded by a group whose roots can be traced back to a meeting between a salesman and a sailor in Honolulu. These two men eventually formed an act called the “Men” which consisted of a total of 13 men.  But 13 proved to be an unlucky number but they fixed that quick.   Terry Kirkman was selling business forms in Hawaii when he met Gary Alexander who was in the Navy. They both had a musical background and agreed to meet up on the mainland when Gary’s hitch was up. True to superstition, the number 13 proved to be bad luck and the group was split down the middle when 7 of the “Men” walked out after an argument during a rehearsal. Their luck began to change after the group reformed with a new name and during this week in 1967 they scored their second number one hit – Here now is the “Association” with today’s 101 number one song of the day (Windy)

The 101 number one song of the day was the product of a Canadian who wrote his first song simply because he figured if other people could do it, so could he.

 

The 101 number one song of the day was the product of a Canadian who wrote his first song simply because he figured if other people could do it, so could he.  Although the thought didn’t even occur to him until he was about 17. He showed some musical talent when he was quite a bit younger and at 11 he was asked by his school principal to sing over the PA system. But when he heard Bob Dylan he was really hooked. Dylan, he said, “was moving into musical areas where angels feared to tread…getting into areas that no one had ever explored.” Eventually he developed his own style and started churning out songs at a rate of about one a day. On July 3rd, 1974 one of those songs was number one in America and it is today’s 101 number one song of the day for Gordon Lightfoot – “Sundown”

When today’s 101 number one song was sung on stage during a TV special in the 70’s the decade’s icon of coolness lost his cool and couldn’t perform.

Several celebrities were in the audience for the taping of a show that aired on NBC. Today’s featured singer invited them to join him for the finale and they gladly obliged although one of them had to edited out. That was then LA mayor Tom Bradley who was running for re-election at the time, prompting the network to be concerned about giving his opponents equal time. Another was Henry Winkler who completely choked until it was suggested that he get into character as “The Fonz” Once his coolness was restored, he was able to sing the song that became number one on July 1, 1972 for Neil Diamond “Song Sung Blue”

The 101 number one song of the day made the second largest leap to number one in the rock era. It debuted on the Hot 100 at number 28 moved up to 15 the next week and wound up on top the following week on this day in 1966.  One of the members of the group had written a book a couple of years earlier. It was called “In His Own Write.” The Times of London said it was, “worth the attention of anyone who fears for the impoverishment of the English language and the British imagination.” In any case it was the inspiration for the song you’re about to hear. By the way, John wrote the Book, Paul wrote the song which was number one on June 30, 1966 “Paperback Writer’”

June 27, 2014: The 101 number one song of the day was the first Lennon-McCartney song NOT recorded by the Beatles to top the charts in America.

 

The 101 number one song of the day was the first Lennon-McCartney song NOT recorded by the Beatles to top the charts in America.  It was one of Paul’s songs but the four Lads from Liverpool agreed it wasn’t quite right for them so it was offered to Billy J. Kramer who decided to pass. Another friend of Paul’s had just been signed to a recording contract a part of a duo and they needed material. They decided to give this one a try and the result was that on June 27th, 1964 it rose to number one in America for Peter and Gordon (A World Without Love)

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.”
