Today’s 101 #1 Song of the Day was inspired when the artist was speaking to a stained glass class with his friend Garry and his girlfriend – he wanted to use Garry’s name in the song but decided he better change it – so he picked the name that he had on a football jersey he was wearing… (more…)

The 101 number one song of the day was the biggest hit recorded by a band that came to national prominence after they were signed to be regulars on Dick Clark’s daily afternoon music show. And no – it wasn’t American Bandstand. The series debuted in the summer of ‘65 (Where the Action IS) and the group went on to have nine top 20 hits before the decade was over…

Although they were primarily known as a sixties band, their biggest hit came in the seventies. It was also their last top 20 hit. It reached the top of the charts on July 24, 1971 for the group once known as Paul Revere and the Raiders but now shortened to “The Raiders” and the song: Indian Reservation.

Today’s 101 #1 Song of the Day was performed on the Ed Sullivan Show and that performance would solidify the band as one-time guests. See, they were asked to change a line in the song because it was thought to be a reference to drug use – they agreed and even did the alternate line in rehearsal but the singer sang the original line live on stage. The line was supposed to be “Girl, we couldn’t get much better” – but Jim Morrison pulled a fast one and sang it the way it was written…and when the performance was over, Ed refused to shake Jim’s hand – they were told they’d never again do the show and Jim said to that – “we just did Ed Sullivan” Number one on this day in 1967 were The Doors with “Light My Fire” ***buick commercial “Come on Buick, light my fire”

Today’s 101 #1 Song of the Day was written by Daryl Hall and recorded by Hall and Oates but it did not become a hit until about 5 years later when it was recorded by an 80’s teen idol who had been the front man for short-lived bands like Kat Kool and the Kool Kats, Streetband and the Q-Tips…but the year before his big hit, he almost suffered a career-ending blow. Hear the rest of the story and the song next on 101 Gold. It was 1984 and he had been on a heavy promotional tour of the U.S. His vocal chords became so strained that couldn’t sing for most of the year. But by the following year, he had recovered and recorded his only number one song – the Hall and Oates tune “Every Time You Go Away” – here’s Paul Young with your 101 #1 Song of the Day.

Today’s 101 #1 Song of the day was written at the request of an actor who couldn’t get permission to use the song he really wanted in his movie – that was Queen’s “Another One Bites the Dust”…[when you find out who the actor is – you’ll probably know what song we’re talking about… (more…)

The 101 number one song of the day was written and performed by a former soldier who was learning how to be a telephone lineman when he met the character who inspired the song you’re about to hear. They were at Fort Dix in New Jersey. The guy stayed there about a week, and one evening he turned around and said he was really fed up and tired… (more…)

The 101 number one song of the day came from what was, essentially, a family act. But during the recording of this song something happened that would change the family forever. The group consisted of 3 brothers, their cousin and a high school friend. The band was managed by the brothers’ father who ruled with an iron hand. Problem was, one of the brothers was one with all the ideas and as he grew… (more…)

The 101 number one song of the day received high praise from the writer of the song it knocked out of the top spot – Neil Sedaka. This song’s writer was not a stranger to the attention but nevertheless was pleased by Sedaka’s remarks.  The year was 1975 and Neil had been on a roll with his own recording comeback as well as compositions for other musicians. His song for the Captain and Tennille, “Love Will Keep Us Together” had been ruling the Hot 100 for four weeks before giving way to the song that dethroned it this week of that year. Sedaka said of the new number one… (more…)

Today’s 101 #1 Song of the Day was the first U.S. Number one for the artist who performed it and it would go on to become the top selling single of 1984. The artist was asked to write a song for an upcoming rock musical drama – starring that very artist – the director wanted a song to match the theme of a particular segment in the film which involved intermingled parental difficulties and an affair. By the next morning he would have not one… (more…)

Today’s 101 #1 Song of the Day was initially only played on pirate radio stations because its lyrics were considered too suggestive…but it all started with the guitarist recording the opening riff in a hotel room. He said when he listened back to it in the morning, you could hear about 2 minutes of acoustic guitar and then 40 minutes of snoring – but he took the tape to his writing partner and soon they’d have their first number one in America… (more…)
