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.  (And he did – one of his best is up next.) 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… (more…)

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.  (Find out what happened, next) 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… (more…)

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.  (It’s next)  One of the members of the group had written a book a couple of years earlier.  It was called “In His Own Write.”  … (more…)

When the 101 number one song of the day got to the top, the group became the first artists of the rock era to have their first three chart releases reach number one.  (And it’s next)  The song listed its writing and production credits as “The Corporation” rather than give the actual people individual credit.  That was most likely due to the bitterness involved in the recent split with superstar writers and producers Holland Dozier Holland… (more…)

Today’s 101 Number one Song of the Day demoted a former band member of the artist’s from the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100. It would be the only time any two members of that band would hold the #1 and #2 positions on the chart. The song and the album it was on were delayed because the artists was supposed to be produced by Phil Spector… (more…)

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 that would all change with the release of today’s featured single which you’ll hear at 6:40.) 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… (more…)

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.  (You’ll find out what it is in minutes.)  It was recorded by a duo 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.  They recorded their first album entirely in Spanish.  Later they released an English version of one of the songs (written by Neil Sedaka)…

which became number one in America on June 22nd, 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 artists that did it – The Captain and Toni Tenille were the ones to do it with “Love Will Keep Us Together.” “Por Amor Viviremos”

Today’s 101 #1 Song of the Day has a warble…and the band’s label didn’t like that – they thought it would keep the single from being successful so it wasn’t released first from the new album, as the band had hoped it would be. It was probably that warble that made it really stand out. Hear the rest of the story and the song next on 101 Gold. The song ended up being one of two that would prevent Bruce Springsteen from reaching number one with…

“Dancing in the Dark” – the other was Prince’s “When Doves Cry”. Today’s featured single would be one of only two chart toppers for the group although they would have 11 tracks reach the top 20 in the U.S. The year was 1984. The group is Duran Duran and “The Reflex” is today’s 101 #1 song of the day

The 101 number one song of the Day was recorded by a group whose lead singer was unhappy with the results but a little white lie helped to get the record to the top of the charts.  (More on that next) The four members were friends growing up in Detroit.  They played ball together but didn’t sing together.  In fact, they each sang with different groups until one night at a party they started jamming and realized they made a great time.  They called themselves the Four Aims but at the time, the Ames Brothers were popular and it was suggested that they come up with a different name and I’ll get back to that in a moment but first that white lie – (more…)

The 101 number one song of the day was produced by the legendary George Martin who had a knack for getting to the top with British musicians but things were a little different with this group of… army brats.  (more on that, next)  Three friends got together to start their group while attending London’s Central High School.  But these guys had little in common with the rest of the rock and rollers coming out of England.  They weren’t English.  But they were certainly influenced by the music scene there and after several successful albums, they enlisted the aid of the producer who helped to mold the Beatles.  George Martin had heard they took a long time to complete an LP and he was worried that it would take a long time to complete their work together… (more…)
