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…)

The 101 number one song of the day was written by a man named McKay and sung by a trio once known as the Heavenly Sunbeams. The title of the song was the same as a onetime number one by the Eagles. It was an entirely different song though . Al McKay and the guiding force behind Earth, Wind and Fire – (more…)

Today’s 101 #1 Song of the Day comes from a one hit wonder…and that may be because the sound of the song was nothing like the sound of the group – they wanted to be a beatlesque band but their new bassist added a Motown-like bass line to the song which gave it a funky feel and they’d take it to number one.  After that, they didn’t know how to get back to what they wanted to do so one founding member left after recording one more album. The song that made the group famous was originally done by Hot Chocolate… (more…)

Today’s 101 #1 Song of the Day was written by a duo while they were vacationing in Brazil over New Year’s to ring in 1969. One of them said it was originally meant to be a real Hank Williams/ Jimmie Rodgers 1930’s country song – but he said their newest member gave it a different feel; threw it off the wall the other way…  (more…)

Today’s 101 #1 Song of the Day had its beginning in front of a recording studio in Hollywood that belonged to Brian Elliot. It had a large window in front and the outside of the window was mirrored so it attracted high school girls on their way to school. There, they would stop, fix their hair in the mirror and talk. Elliot overheard their conversations and one became a song that would be lauded by music critics but criticized as promoting teen pregnancy… (more…)

The 101 number one song of the day was written and produced by a former flunky for Phil Spector – his own words to describe the job. He, Salvatore, teamed up with a onetime back up singer, named Cherilyn, who contributed to such records as the “Da Doo Run, Run” and “Be My Baby.” They’d go on to form a powerful pair.  At first, he was supposed to stay behind the scenes, while she got behind the microphone. But she got the jitters and he jumped in to sing with her to calm her nerves… (more…)

The 101 # 1 song of the Day comes from a band that got its start with a guy and his saxophone – trouble was, the guy didn’t actually know how to play the saxophone. Thomas McClary was a freshman at Tuskegee Institute in Alabama when he decided that a good way to meet girls was to form a band. That’s when he ran into the guy with the saxophone who never really learned how to play it. But he was game and they formed a band called the Mystics. Later they were approached by another group – the Jays who suggested they merge. When deciding to pick a new name they threw a dictionary up in the air and let it fall open. They agreed to use the word randomly pointed to as their new name and that’s how they almost became the Commodes… (more…)

Today’s 101 #1 Song of the Day was described by the band’s guitarist as “Eye of the Tiger” played by a reggae band – the bassist called it a bit of a one note groove…once the singer added his touch, the guys decided they had something to work with. The group had a heavy interest in American music and gospel, in particular, inspired today’s featured single… (more…)
