Posted in 101 #1 Song of The Day, 101 Gold's Posts, Your Morning Show

 

101 number one song of the day was the only number one single to have two different versions of the same song, by the same artists to be on Billboard’s Hot 100 at the same time.  (You’ll find out what it is in minutes.)  It was recorded by a duo who both worked for a time for the Beach Boys – she as a backup singer and piano player and he played all the other keyboards during their tour.  When the tour ended, they began working together.  They recorded their first album entirely in Spanish.  Later they released an English version of one of the songs (written by Neil Sedaka)…

which became number one in America on June 22nd, 1975.  When the Spanish version was released as a single shortly thereafter it became the only occasion when two versions of a number one single were on the same chart at the same time and the artists that did it – The Captain and Toni Tenille were the ones to do it with “Love Will Keep Us Together.” “Por Amor Viviremos”

Today’s 101 #1 Song of the Day has a warble…and the band’s label didn’t like that – they thought it would keep the single from being successful so it wasn’t released first from the new album, as the band had hoped it would be. It was probably that warble that made it really stand out. Hear the rest of the story and the song next on 101 Gold. The song ended up being one of two that would prevent Bruce Springsteen from reaching number one with…

“Dancing in the Dark” – the other was Prince’s “When Doves Cry”. Today’s featured single would be one of only two chart toppers for the group although they would have 11 tracks reach the top 20 in the U.S. The year was 1984. The group is Duran Duran and “The Reflex” is today’s 101 #1 song of the day

The 101 number one song of the Day was recorded by a group whose lead singer was unhappy with the results but a little white lie helped to get the record to the top of the charts.  (More on that next) The four members were friends growing up in Detroit.  They played ball together but didn’t sing together.  In fact, they each sang with different groups until one night at a party they started jamming and realized they made a great time.  They called themselves the Four Aims but at the time, the Ames Brothers were popular and it was suggested that they come up with a different name and I’ll get back to that in a moment but first that white lie – (more…)

The 101 number one song of the day was produced by the legendary George Martin who had a knack for getting to the top with British musicians but things were a little different with this group of… army brats.  (more on that, next)  Three friends got together to start their group while attending London’s Central High School.  But these guys had little in common with the rest of the rock and rollers coming out of England.  They weren’t English.  But they were certainly influenced by the music scene there and after several successful albums, they enlisted the aid of the producer who helped to mold the Beatles.  George Martin had heard they took a long time to complete an LP and he was worried that it would take a long time to complete their work together… (more…)

Today’s 101 #1 Song of the Day was the last for the group that performed it…the last number one and the last single release before the band’s break up. The writer described it as a sad song. He said he liked writing sad songs because it meant he saved on a psychiatrist. It reflected the building tension within the group. And what happened with the song post-production made him so mad it ended up on his six reasons for breaking up the group as a legal entity…

Hear the rest of the story and the song next on 101 Gold. See, Phil Spector got a hold of the song and added harps, horns, an orchestra and a choir. The writer was outraged but despite his objections it made it onto the album and Phil must’ve done something right, because it went to number one June 16th 1970. The album was “Let It Be” – the writer was Paul McCartney and it was the 20th #1 for the Beatles – “The Long and Winding Road” is your 101 #1 Song of the Day.

Today’s 101 #1 Song of the Day reflects the story of so many number one songs – initially thought of as a lightweight and not even considered initially for recording…but it would become the pinnacle of the responsible group’s success. Hear the rest of the story and the song next on 101 Gold. By the mid 80’s, the group had had quite a bit of success in the U.K… (more…)

A pigeon flew through an opened window of a man’s home, defecated all over the kitchen, then laid an egg…in the frying pan! The pigeon was set free from the home, and the egg taken to an environmental agency.

The 101 #1 Song of the day is next – In the first six months of 1964 only one American group had a number one song in the U.S. (as to which group that was – the answer might surprise you – the 101 number one song of the day is next)  They were three black women who were discovered by the famed production and writing team of Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller… (more…)
