The 101 number one song of the day was written by Barry Gibb but recorded as a solo by the former lead singer of an American group and it became the second # 1 song from the soundtrack of a very successful movie. The film was based on a Broadway musical which celebrated the sound of the 50’s but this was the late 70s so the producers asked Barry Gibb to come up with something more contemporary for the title song. He and his brothers, Robin and Maurice, had just been enjoying their huge success with their Saturday Night Fever album which had become the best selling soundtrack of all time…

Today’s 101 #1 Song of the Day made Bob Dylan really mad! Because he had recorded a version and after the group you’re about to hear released their version, Bob’s was referred to as a cover…it’s not a song written by Dylan –

his name. Who did he become? Barry White

Today’s 101 #1 Song of the Day almost didn’t become a #1 because “Every Breath You Take” by The Police hogged up the top spot for eight straight weeks in 1983…today’s featured single was stuck at #2 but it hung on long enough to move up when the time came partly because of the singers’ androgynous look in the music video…

The 101 #1 Song of the Day was intended for the Temptations – but Motown execs thought it might be too controversial for some of their more conservative fans and so they gave it to one of their “second stringers”…an artist they picked up when they bought his label Ric-Tic in 1968…

The 101 number one song of the day was a mixed blessing for the one time bar band that got its start at New Jersey’s Rutgers University. People who liked the song usually didn’t like the concert the group performed. It was written by group leader Elliott Lurie about a former high school friend of his whose name was Randy although that name never worked quite right in the actual song…

The 101 number one song of the day was co-written and sung by a guy who once scored a perfect 800 score on his math SATs.  The son of a NYC MD, he intended to become an engineer and he enrolled at Cornell but soon he was spending more time on music than his studies and while hitchhiking across the country to San Francisco he taught himself to play the harmonica… (more…)

The 101 number one song of the day was the ninth try for a group of girls signed by Motown. Their 8 previous attempts all failed on the charts and the other artists on the label had started making fun of their inability to produce a hit. Today’s featured song was written for the Marvellettes but lead singer Gladys Horton said, “no way am I gonna sing any junk like!” The song was passed around down the line until it was offered to the group you’re about to hear and because they were low down on the totem pole… (more…)
