September 16, 2014: The 101 number one song of the day was a comeback of sorts for one of the biggest bands of the 70s that was going through a slump bad enough to get them unceremoniously dumped from their record label after racking up over $160 million in album sales.

The 101 number one song of the day was a comeback of sorts for one of the biggest bands of the 70s that was going through a slump bad enough to get them unceremoniously dumped from their record label after racking up over $160 million in album sales.
It was the theme song for a box office flop by the name of Summer Lovers. Even though it was their first big hit in a few years it appeared destined to stay stuck at number five where it held for 4 straight weeks. But finally during this week in 1982, it jumped up to number one and the comeback was on its way for Chicago and the song is “Hard to Say I’m Sorry.”

September 15, 2014: The 101 number one song of the day was the first of many for a group who once auditioned for a job in a bowling alley in New Jersey. They didn’t get the job but they did take something that would stay with them forever.

The 101 number one song of the day was the first of many for a group who once auditioned for a job in a bowling alley in New Jersey. They didn’t get the job but they did take something that would stay with them forever – a new name. The song made them an overnight success. But their distinctive lead singer had been toiling away for over a decade working with first the Varity Trio, then the Variatones and by the time they tried out for the Bowling Alley gig, they called themselves the Four Lovers. While that job failed to materialize, they decided to get something for the effort and so they took the name of the lanes as their new name – The place was called – the Four Seasons and they were on their way to number one – landing there on this week in 1962 with (Sherry)

September 12, 2014: The 101 number one song of the day was recorded by a man who, to use his own words, was the kid, “that used to get stones thrown at him because he was so thin and couldn’t do physical training very well.” But what he could do very well was play the guitar.

The 101 number one song of the day was recorded by a man who, to use his own words, was the kid, “that used to get stones thrown at him because he was so thin and couldn’t do physical training very well.” But what he could do very well was play the guitar. As a teenager he was drafted by the Yardbirds to play lead. Disillusioned with what he perceived as their abandonment of hardcore blues, he quit. Later he formed the group Cream, then Blind Faith and still later Derek and the Dominoes. But the song that he took to the top of the charts this week in 1974 was written by reggae genius Bob Marley and recorded under his own name – Eric Clapton and it’s today’s 101 number one song of the day “I Shot the Sheriff”

September 11, 2014: The 101 number one song of the day was written in response to a United States Supreme Court ruling from 1954. 18 years after the decision was handed down it became a hit.

The 101 number one song of the day was written in response to a United States Supreme Court ruling from 1954. 18 years after the decision was handed down it became a hit. The song was first recorded by Sammy Davis, Jr. in the late 50s and in 1971 a Jamaican Reggae group called “Greyhound” did a version of it. The group that took it to number one heard the Greyhound single on a Dutch radio station while they were touring Europe. They condensed the words somewhat and the verse, “Their robes were black/Their heads were white/The school house doors were closed so tight/Nine judges all set down their names/To end the years and years of shame.” The high court decision which the song commemorates banned segregation in public schools and the song which was number one this week in 1972 belonged to Three Dog Night (Black and White)

The 101 number one song of the day was the title song to a movie but more importantly, according to the song’s writer, it was a cry for help. He said it was his “Fat Elvis” period, although at the time, Elvis had yet to gain all that weight. But, looking back, he said, the character in the movie was himself. “I was very fat, very insecure and felt that I’d lost myself.” And although most thought it was just a fast rock ‘n’ roll song, the single that was number one in America on September 9th, 1965 was literally John Lennon’s cry for (HELP!)

September 8, 2014: The 101 number one song of the day was recorded by a group which was once known as the Pagans whose lead singer was first inspired to get into music after hearing a song called, “don’t Roll Those Bloodshot Eyes at Me.”

The 101 number one song of the day was recorded by a group which was once known as the Pagans whose lead singer was first inspired to get into music after hearing a song called, “don’t Roll Those Bloodshot Eyes at Me.” He grew up in England inspired by American R&B and rock and roll artists such as Chuck Berry, Wilbert Harrison and Bo Diddley. Later, he joined a group called the Alan Price Combo which evolved into the Pagans whose lineup included all the members that would record the song you’re about to hear. The lead singer had first heard the song when he was ten years old and the melody always haunted him. Eventually, it would launch his musical career which would include two separate popular groups. According to popular myth, the group’s audiences had a special name for them other than the Pagans and that is the name we came to know them by. He is Eric Burdon and the group became the Animals. The song which was number one on September 8th, 1964 was House of the Rising Sun.

September 5, 2014: The 101 Number One Song of the Day was recorded by a group some touted as the “next Beatles” and while they fell far short of that kind of accomplishment, it was the Fab Four that got them started.

The 101 Number One Song of the Day was recorded by a group some touted as the “next Beatles” and while they fell far short of that kind of accomplishment, it was the Fab Four that got them started. Growing up in the 60s provided the inspiration for the music they’d later make and in fact it was intentional they projected a sound that was reminiscent of many different bands from the British Invasion but it was the Beatles first performance on the Ed Sullivan Show that got group member Dour Fieger got all revved up, especially, John Lennon. Their first album was recorded virtually live with few overdubs and from start to final mix took only 11 days and cost a mere $18,000. Today’s featured record made a whole lot more money than that but their hit making abilities would fall far short of the group which first motivated them. But on September 5th, 1979 they occupied the number one spot on the pop charts with MY SHARONA. It’s the Knack.
Not everybody loved the Knack, in fact one San Francisco artist created the Knuke the Knack kit.

The 101 number one song of the Day was recorded by a man tagged by the press as a Bob Dylan ripoff. It’s easy to see why he was considered to be a copy because he wore a denim cap, played a harmonica attached to a neck harness and sang what sounded like folk songs. But when Dylan came to Britain and the two met face to face at a hotel, the two emerged as obvious friends, the media’s attitude shifted to a more favorable stance. Eventually his music evolved and as his image changed from wandering minstrel to flower child, the distinction between the two became much clearer. And on September 4, 1966, he owned the number one song in America – something that Dylan was never able to do…Here’s Donovan with the 101 number one song of the day – Sunshine Superman

The 101 number one song of the day was written by the most successful songwriter of all time. He was asked if any of the many different characters created for those songs were real. He said that the character featured in today’s charttopper was a real live relative of his. (Find out who that is – next) While people such as “Michelle,” Eleanor Rigby, Lady Madonna and others were figments of his imagination, there was a man he knew who used to quote the bible to everyone when he got drunk. He used to read from the bible to make those quotes and it was the only time he read the bible. It’s probably not a big mystery that the songwriter to which I’m referring is Paul McCartney but what about the bible quoting relative? His name is the first name used in the song that was number one in America on September 3rd, 1971 – It was Paul’s real live “Uncle Albert.”

September 2nd, 2014: The 101 number one song of the day was written by Barry Gibb but recorded as a solo by the former lead singer of an American group and it became the second # 1 song from the soundtrack of a very successful movie.

The 101 number one song of the day was written by Barry Gibb but recorded as a solo by the former lead singer of an American group and it became the second # 1 song from the soundtrack of a very successful movie.
The film was based on a Broadway musical which celebrated the sound of the 50’s but this was the late 70s so the producers asked Barry Gibb to come up with something more contemporary for the title song. He and his brothers, Robin and Maurice, had just been enjoying their huge success with their Saturday Night Fever album which had become the best selling soundtrack of all time. This sound track would become the second best seller to date and the movie starred the same person who became a breakout star after his headlining role in the previous movie. He would also be responsible for the movie’s first number one song. His name was John Travolta who, along with Olivia Newtown John sang “You’re the One that I Want” which went to number one a couple of months before. The song that was number one on this day in 1978 was the product of Frankie Vallie – It’s Grease
