October 15, 2014: The 101 number one song of the day is a love song. But it is a very different love song because it does not express love for another human being –rather it is for an animal.

The 101 number one song of the day is a love song. But it is a very different love song because it does not express love for another human being –rather it is for an animal. And it happens to be about an animal that very few of us would consider the least bit lovable. It’s the title song to a horror movie about an ailing youngster who somehow befriends the leader of a killer gang. Authorities are intent on wiping out the gang but the kid wants to protect the leader and he composes a song about their relationship. The movie was a hit and so, obviously, was the song that was number one during this week in October, 1972 – it was a song about a rat – named “Ben” –Michael Jackson

October 14, 2014: The 101 number one song of the day was recorded in New Mexico by a group from New Mexico and it became the biggest single of that year.

The 101 number one song of the day was recorded in New Mexico by a group from New Mexico and it became the biggest single of that year. The group was from Raton and they were in need of a lead singer. Norman Petty, who owned the famed studios in Clovis, knew a singer from Amarillo and suggested they get together. They decided to give it try and went on the road trying out different songs to add to their repertoire. One song in particular got an incredible response from audiences. The reaction was so great, they played it twice each show. Soon they recorded it and released it as a single. At first, it sold well only in the southwest but eventually it broke out and it arrived at number one on October 12, 1963 and stayed on top for five weeks. It’s today’s 101 number one song of the day – from Jimmy Gilmer and the Fireballs (Sugar Shack)

October 10, 2014: The 101 number one song of the day was inspired by a tale of an Indian tribe whose members included far more men than women and how they coped with that situation.

The 101 number one song of the day was inspired by a tale of an Indian tribe whose members included far more men than women and how they coped with that situation and it’s a pretty funny story. The one time pre med student at New York University was in Canada when a medical missionary told him that the men who did not have women would buy bottles of rose wine which would become their women for the weekend. We’re not quite sure if the wine made them forget their predicament or the bottle in which it came was some sort of substitute but in any event, the song that grew out of that story reached number one on October 10, 1970 for Neil Diamond and here’s your 101 number one song of the day. (Cracklin’ Rosie)

October 9, 2014: The 101 number one song of the day comes from a man who was making a comeback – a comeback so big it was even bigger than when he made it big the first time around.

The 101 number one song of the day comes from a man who was making a comeback – a comeback so big it was even bigger than when he made it big the first time around. Success came early to today’s featured artist, first as a writer then as a performer in the early sixties. But then he entered a dry period of about 11 years when nothing seemed to work for him. But then in 1975, he suddenly could do nothing wrong. He was an opening act for the Carpenters that year in Vegas. But problems arose when he began getting a better reception from both the critics and the audiences that Karen and Richard were. One night he introduced Dick Clark and Tom Jones who were in the audience to see him. The next day he was asked to leave the show. He did, but not before signing a contract with the Riviera to return as a headliner. Concurrently, he wrote three songs that went to number one. Two of them he performed himself and the one in the middle was performed by the Captain and Tonille who even mentioned his name on the record “Love Will Keep Us Together” The third song arrived at number one this week in October, 1975 with Elton John singing backup vocals for Neil Sedaka – “Bad Blood”

The 101 number one song of the day was recorded by an artist who – at the time – waited longer than any other artist to get to number one after first charting which was in November 1958. It took him until this week in October 1979. Remember Bobby Pedrick, Jr? Of course not but you’ll remember today’s song. He charted his first hit song when he was only 12 years old. It was called “White Bucks and Saddle Shoes.” Over the years he continued to record, with limited success but he kept trying. He did manage to get to number three in 1972 with a cover of the Tokens “Lion Sleeps Tonight.” By 1979 he was working construction jobs in New Jersey when he began working and re-working a song that he had in his head and after knocking on a lot of doors he got it recorded and then it took the long road to the top where, after 20 long weeks it finally reached the top for the now renamed Robert John. The song is “Sad Eyes.”
(Robert John Pedwick, Jr.)

October 6, 2014: Today’s 101 # 1 Song of the Day was picked by Michael Jackson as the cut that should be released as the first single from the album “The Game” released by a group formed in London in 1970. The band that recorded the song should have listened.

Today’s 101 # 1 Song of the Day was picked by Michael Jackson as the cut that should be released as the first single from the album “The Game” released by a group formed in London in 1970. They should have listened. As it turned out, this particular track was preceded by two others and to be fair, the first song did get to number one but the second release “Play the Game” only made it to number 42 on Billboard’s Hot 100. Today’s song was finally released as a single on August 16, 1980 and took only five weeks to reach number one where it was on October 6th for Queen. It became their biggest hit ever. It’s Another One Bites the Dust.

The 101 number one song of the day was recorded by a one time “Rock Star of the Year” as named by Rolling Stone Magazine which firmly established him as a new face on the scene. Actually, he was an old “face.” At first his dad expected him to be a “footballer” – a pro soccer player but when his career didn’t advance beyond cleaning out lockers and polishing the players’ cleats, he returned to his first love – music. He and guitarist Ron Wood, who would later join the Rolling Stones were pals and they became members of the London band “Faces” but he was always interested in a solo career and three years earlier, he recorded Sam Cooke’s “You Send Me.” In fact, he has said that Sam Cooke was the biggest influence in his life. By 1971, he fulfilled his dream by going out on his own and later that year recorded a two sided hit with the intended “B” side becoming the more popular of the two sides. The “A” side was called “Reason to Believe” and today’s 101 number one song of the day which was at the top of the charts on October 3, 1971 is this: Maggie Mae by Rod Stewart

October 2, 2014: Today’s 101 # 1 Song of the Day was written and recorded by a self described short, fat loud mouthed rebel who often got into fights growing up in Indiana. But what really made him mad was his name.

Today’s 101 # 1 Song of the Day was written and recorded by a self described short, fat loud mouthed rebel who often got into fights growing up in Indiana. But what really made him mad was his name. His first album came out in 1975 and that’s when he found out the record company had released it under a name other than his own. He protested but was told it was either that name or no album. That album went nowhere but the name stuck. At least for the next seven years when he released he released the album “American Fool” which would ultimately produce three big hits including the song which reached number one on October 2, 1982. After which he had enough clout with the label to force the issue of his original last name which was then added to the name he had been known as to his ever increasing body of fans. That name is Mellencamp – as in John Cougar Mellencamp with “Jack and Diane.”

October 1, 2014: The 101 number one song of the day was recorded by a group that lost its name to Paul Revere and the Raiders so they reverted to something they had used when they were barely in their teens.

The 101 number one song of the day was recorded by a group that lost its name to Paul Revere and the Raiders so they reverted to something they had used when they were barely in their teens. They took that name from a song they used to sing but a group of record promoters liked the band but hated the name so eventually they decided to call themselves Rick and the Raiders. They did proms, sock hops and local clubs and eventually did some back up work for the Stangeloves who recommended them to one of the founders of Bang records who had a song that needed a group. They got together and released the song which would arrive at number one this week in October, 1965. But this was the same time that Paul Revere and the Raiders was on the rise so they were told to come up with something new. Instead they came up with something old – their original name – The McCoys – Hang on Sloopy
Headed by Rick D. Zehringer who became Rick Derringer.

September 30, 2014: The 101 number one song of the day was written especially for one half of a famous duo and the writer brought the song to their producer. Problem is, the producer had just quit working with them out of frustration.

The 101 number one song of the day was written especially for one half of a famous duo and the writer brought the song to their producer. Problem is, the producer had just quit working with them out of frustration. Today’s song played a role in bringing back the producer but the other half of the act was on the way out for good. He was Snuff Garrett and had helped the pair get back on the charts for the first time in several years but creative differences with the male member of the act brought the relationship to a premature end. Lyricist Mary Dean didn’t know that when she told Garrett that the female member of the duo was the only person who could do it justice. He agreed and started a process which would bring them back together. Meanwhile, it was the beginning of the end for her and her former partner – both professionally and personally. And that brings us to the song that reached number one this week of October 1973 for Cher – without Sonny (Half Breed)
