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…The reason he changed Garry’s name for the song – is because he was kinda hot for his girlfriend…whose name he doesn’t even remember! He says he’s quite sure she doesn’t know that she’s the girl in “Jesse’s Girl” – Rick Springfield has your 101 #1 Song of the Day

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 was at the top of the charts July 26, 1971 for the group once known as Paul Revere and the Raiders but now shortened to “The Raiders” and the song: “Indian Reservation”.

See this awesome tribute to James Taylor and Carole King at Boba Café and Cabaret (Dinner show tickets for two)

The 101 number one song of the day was recorded by a group whose first reaction to the lyrics was “What are they trying to do to us?” They actually were given a choice between the song you’re about to hear and John Sebastian’s “Did You Ever Have to Make Up Your Mind?” which, of course, wound up a big hit for the Lovin’ Spoonful, and despite the fact they thought the words were very corny, the decided to take a pass on Sebastian and go for goofy…although America thought otherwise and so have a number of other musicians who have covered the song over the years including Jimmi Hendrix. Here’s the song that vaulted to number one in the last week of July 1966 for the Troggs “Wild Thing”

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. 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… It was a good thing that happened though because the song would go on to get an Oscar nomination which would be the only one for the movie. The actor was Sly Stallone and the movie was Rocky III. The song gave the group that wrote it the breakthrough they needed and stayed in the number one spot on Billboard for 6 weeks – here’s Survivor with your 101 #1 Song of the Day – “Eye of the Tiger”
