Today’s 101 #1 Song of the Day was written as the theme for Soul Train! And it is considered by some to be the very first disco song to reach number one the Billboard chart ….hear it next on 101 Gold…The song was recorded by Mother Sister Father Brother – with help on vacals by The Three Degrees who would go on to more success in the same year (which was 1974) with “When Will I see You Again” … (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…)

101 Number One Song of the Day doesn’t sound like Elvis but the King’s influence was responsible for his choice of stage names although it wouldn’t be obvious to the casual fan.  (The story, and the song is next)  Glyn Ellis was born in Manchester, England and by 1965, even people from Manchester were considered to have that Liverpool sound.  But it was more of a Memphis sound that inspired Glyn when he started playing the pubs and clubs around his hometown.  So when he came to change his name he took one from one of Elvis’s backup musicians… (more…)

Today’s 101 #1 Song of the day was written, recorded and released by members of the group Arrows in 1975…the writer said it was a knee-jerk reaction to the Rolling Stones’ “It’s Only Rock and Roll (but I like it)” but it wouldn’t become a hit until 7 years later when another artist picked it up…hear the rest of the story and the song – next on 101 Gold… (more…)

The 101 Number One Song of the Day comes from the soundtrack of the movie American Gigolo whose composer was turned down by Stevie Nicks to record vocals for the album.  So he turned to another blond who not only sang for him, she wrote the words to what would become number one this day.  (You’ll hear it next.)  (more…)

The 101 #1 Song of the Day is a song that would be the third of SIX consecutive number one songs for the group that wrote it…and that would tie a record by the Beatles – it would also end up on a movie soundtrack in 1977. The movie’s producer wanted to tell the story of the New York disco club scene and he asked the group to write a song called Saturday Night…but they thought that was dumb – and they already had a song started which you’re about to hear. It would end up displacing their brother at the top of the Billboard chart and would later itself be toppled by one of their songs sung by someone else… (more…)

The 101 #1 Song of the Day is probably known more by its opening line than its actual title. And it was described by one of the singers of the group that performed it as “not even close to their best record – but maybe one of their most honest.” The song, which was written by Hoyt Axton, is coming up next on 101 Gold. Two of the band’s singers rejected the tune when Hoyt performed it for them but the third thought the silly song was just what the band needed to bring them back together as a working unit… (more…)

The 101 number one song of the day wasn’t actually one song at all – it was more like two halves of two different songs and there was an internal struggle to bring those both halves together.  (How it happened and the result is coming up next)  The first part was an introduction piece to a musical and the group that took it to the top saw it performed on stage and immediately wanted to record it.  Their producer, Bones Howe, was not impressed saying, “it’s only a half a song.”  (more…)

…it was the biggest adult contemporary hit for the queen of soul – pretty surprising considering her long list of hits…but for the song you’re about to hear, she wasn’t alone. It’s arguably one of the more odd pairings in pop – find out who she teamed up with in 1987 to get a number one single…next on 101 Gold. It had always been the male artist’s ambition to sing with Aretha Franklin and once he had a couple of number ones under his belt – (more…)
