November 21, 2014: The 101 song of the day was written and performed by a guy who once got Kris Kristofferson a job – as a janitor.

He’d been working at the Columbia Records’ studio in Nashville trying to get some of the songs he’d written recorded and while there he did odd jobs including mopping the floor and cleaning bathrooms. He started to move up a bit and passed his janitorial duties onto a fellow struggling songwriter and Rhodes Scholar Kris Kristofferson. Kris didn’t hold that job too long and when he made it big, he asked today’s featured artist to join his band. Later, when he got married, Kris and Rita Coolidge bought him a little organ on which he wrote the song that put his own name up in lights and arrived at number one this week in November, 1974 – His name is Billy Swan and here’s your 101 number one song of the day (I Can Help)

November 11, 2014: The 101 Number One Song of the day was the fifth and final number one song for a 70’s super group who kept their vow to quit while they were on top.

Well they kept that promise for a while, anyway. One of the founding members was quoted as saying that he knew the band was over halfway through the recording of the album which produced today’s featured single. He went on to say, “I started the band, I got tired of it and I quit.” No wonder he and his other bandmates grew tired. They began recording the album in 1977 and it wasn’t completed until two years later but once it was, today’s song moved faster than any of their previous singles up the charts and on November 11th, 1979 it was number one – for the Eagles – “Heartache Tonight.”

October 16, 2014: The 101 number one song of the day was recorded by a band headed by a South African jazz pianist named Michael Lubowitz. It was written by the same people who wrote Da Doo Ron Ron and it makes about as much sense.

The 101 number one song of the day was recorded by a band headed by a South African jazz pianist named Michael Lubowitz. It was written by the same people who wrote Da Doo Ron Ron and it makes about as much sense. They were the duo of Jeff Barry and Ellie Greewich. Lubowitz moved from South Africa to Britain after studying at Vienna State Academy and the Juilliard School of Music in New York. He took his formal training and started to Rock and Roll and the song you’re about to hear was number one this week in October, 1964. By this time his name and the name of the band were one and the same: Manfred Mann (Do Wah Diddy Diddy)

October 7, 2014: The writer and singer of the 101 number one song of the day thought the premise was – to use his words – super-egotistical and pretentious. But when he mentioned the idea, his producer said “it sounds like a number one song” even before it was written.

The writer and singer of the 101 number one song of the day thought the premise was – to use his words – super-egotistical and pretentious. But when he mentioned the idea, his producer said “it sounds like a number one song” even before it was written. He was a former choir boy from Lubbock, Texas who had written hit songs for Bobby Goldsboro, Elvis, and Kenny Rogers before he got around to writing one for himself. Once he got rolling he landed his own TV show and wound up in featured roles in a number of movies. Here now is the song that was number one in America on October 7, 1972 for Mac Davis (Baby don’t Get Hooked on Me)
