2 free tickets with the 101 #1 Song of the Day Replay…here’s the song for today.

The 101 number one song of the day was recorded by the only American to have a number one hit in Great Britain during a 68 week period that began August 8th 1963 through June 25th 1964. And he did it twice. Today’s featured single goes back to a comment by his songwriting partner. The two were sitting at the piano when the singer’s wife said she was going out. He asked her if she needed money and the writing partner said “A pretty woman never needs any money” – and a hit song was born – the artist was so popular in Britain that when he toured the country in 1963 his opening act was the Beatles.   The two songs that reached the top during the aforementioned period were “It’s Over” and “Oh, Pretty Woman” number one in America on this day in 1964 for Roy Orbison .

The American Led Zeppelin is live at the Flickinger Center in Alamogordo Sunday, October 2nd.

Today’s 101 #1 Song of the Day had a groundbreaking video that was the first to be played on MTV Europe when it debuted in August of 1987 and it was controversial for some of the lyrics which the writer says were inspired by a worker in the hardware dept. of an appliance store. In fact, he started scribbling down words the worker was saying as he was watching music videos! Now, the most famous line in the song was from a member of another band, The Police. Sting was invited to add some background vocals and came up with the line to the tune of one of his band’s songs – “don’t stand so close to me” – see if it sounds like the same tune “I Want my MTV” – yup, the appliance store workers were watching MTV and that inspired Mark Knopfler to write “Money for Nothin’” and it was #1 on this day in 1985 (spent 3 weeks atop the Billboard chart) and became Dire Straits’ most commercially successful single.

Today’s 101 #1 Song of the Day was co-written and performed by the former lead singer of two popular British bands – one in the 70’s and one in the 80’s considered a supergroup but it was as a solo act in between that he’d hit the number one spot first… He was with The Babys in the late 70’s and they had some moderate success on the Billboard Hot 100…later, he would meet up with his former bandmates and Neil Schonn from Journey to form Bad English, and they’d have a #1 single…but that was 1989 – 5 years after he hit the top spot with a song he co-wrote for his “No Brakes” album and it was number one on this day in 1984 for John Waite – “Missing You”

The American Led Zeppelin is live in Alamogordo Sunday, October 2nd

The 101 Number One Song of the Day was written, produced and performed by the self proclaimed “Prophet of Love” When he was only 11 years old he played piano on the classic 50s hit “Goodnight My Love” by Jesse Belvin. And then he grew up and – out to about 300 pounds. Despite his girth, his half sung, half spoken baritone quickly established him as a romantic figure – if not in person, at least in the background. During this week in September, in the year 1974 his biggest hit became number one in America for Barry White. (Can’t Get Enough of Your Love, Babe)

“The American Led Zeppelin” performs live at the Flickinger Center Sunday, October 2nd in Alamogordo!

The 101 Number One Song of the Day was co-written by John Lennon but not with Paul McCartney. It was the product of a former mime who changed his birth name so he wouldn’t be confused with one of the Monkees. Hear the rest of the story and the song next on 101 Gold. David Robert Jones was born on Elvis’ 12th birthday and by his own 12th birthday he was already deeply interested in music and was studying the saxophone. As he grew he became more interested in combining theatrics with his music. Eventually he came to be known as the ultimate chameleon of rock because of his constant changes in musical styles. With the help of John Lennon who can be heard singing on the end of today’s song, and guitarist Carlos Alamor, he came up with the song which reached number one on September 20th, 1975. By this time, David Jones had changed his last name to Bowie – after the knife, he said. The song: “Fame”
