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. 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. But they were determined to impress their new producer so they went into heavy rehearsals before going into the studio and when they did, their work was completed in two weeks. Today’s 101 number one song of the day came from their followup album and this time Martin was happy to work with them. The album was called Hearts and its biggest single was number one on June 17, 1975 for the sons of American Army officers – America – and this is it “Sister Golden Hair”

The 101 number one song of the day was produced and recorded by an Anglo American band that was immersed in tremendous upheaval. Just when personal relationships were disintegrating, the group came together to achieve its greatest commercial success.   The album which spawned today’s featured song was number one for 31 weeks. The band was formed in 1967 but had undergone many personnel changes over close to a decade. The keyboard player was separating from her husband – the bass player; the drummer was being divorced from another woman he would later remarry and the lead guitarist was breaking up with the lead singer after an eight year relationship. Despite all this turmoil they scored their only number one single this week in June, 1977 – Fleetwood Mac “Dreams”

June 13, 2014: The 101 number one song of the day was the fifth consecutive number one song by the only American group to achieve that feat.

 

 

 

The 101 number one song of the day was the fifth consecutive number one song by the only American group to achieve that feat.   Shortly after it reached number one the group achieved status that reflected the ultimate crossover – headlining at one of American’s top venues – the Copacabana in New York City. Critics loved the show as much as the opening night audience. Said the leader of the group: “It was the beginning of everything for us. We made it where it really counted…at the Copa. And here with their fifth consecutive number one which ruled the charts on June 13, 1965 are the Supremes – Back in My Arms Again.

The 101 number one song of the day was recorded by a group consisting of former backup singers and written by a “General.” (It’s up next.) Edna Willis worked with Johnny Rivers and Ray Charles, Carolyn Willis toured with Lou Rawls and Shellie Clark was an Ikette behind Ike and Tina Turner. The three teamed up to sing backup vocals for Burt Bacharach on a 1969 TV special starring Andy Williams. It was then they got the idea to form a group of their own. Their biggest hit – which reached number one on June 12, 1971- was written by the lead singer of the group “Chairman of the Board” whose name is General Johnson – here’s your 101 number one song of the day for the “Honey Cone.”  It is Want Ads.

The 101 Number One Song of the Day travelled a tough road to the top. Its creators had been disappointed with the response they got from a record exec for Australia and New Zealand who wrote, “You’ve sent us quite a few records and this is the worst one you’ve sent us yet.   It was written by a couple of Brits who got their inspiration from the American Civil War. It in turn inspired a battle of the bands. One of those bands, Paper Lace, which had success with the song “The Night Chicago Died” recorded it about the same time as the band you’re about to hear. Paper Lace peaked at number 96 but by this week in 1974, a group that had gained a national following thanks to Dick Clark’s Action ’73 TV show was at number one: Bo Donaldson and the Heywoods (Billy, Don’t Be a Hero)

The 101 number one song of the day was pure child’s play – literally. It got to the top with vocals recorded by a group of second graders.   Ray Ragsdale wrote and produced the song as his first effort for his new label, Barnaby Records. To underscore the optimisn of the song, he took a portable tape recorder to his daughters’ school and arranged for her class to go to the auditorium and sing the chorus. They enjoyed the experience and America enjoyed the result. By June 10, 1970 it was the number one song on Billboard’s Hot 100 and it’s today’s 101 number one song of the day. By the way, by this time Ray changed his last name from Ragsdale to – Stevens. (Everything is Beautiful)

June 6, 2014: 101 number one song was the title cut to an album that was recorded in Lagos, Nigeria which was chosen for one reason and one reason only, but it turned out to be the wrong reason.

the 101 number one song was the title cut to an album that was recorded in Lagos, Nigeria which was chosen for one reason and one reason only, but it turned out to be the wrong reason.  The location was selected for its sunny climate. Unfortunately, the group arrived during the rainy season and it was wet and cloudy the whole time. To make matters worse, during a break from the studio, they were held up at knifepoint and robbed. Nevertheless, the album was completed and it produced several singles that proved to be big hits. But the biggest hit was its title cut and this week in 1974 it became the third number one hit Paul McCartney since the Beatles broke up. Here he is with Wings and today’s 101 number one song of the day. “Band on the Run”

The 101 Number One Song of the Day was recorded by a multitalented woman who would eventually earn several show business nicknames including one she hated, “The First Lady of Lust.”  That name came early in her career which actually began in Europe where she recorded several singles which were considered pretty erotic. Another name she disliked was Disco’s Aphrodite. She began to hate the image so much she developed ulcers and wound up in the hospital for a time and eventually she went back to Europe to chill out but eventually returned to the states to resume her career which continued to grow in the late seventies and early eighties. She was also known as the Queen of Disco and on June 9, 1979 she was at number one for the second time with a song her boss at the record label wanted Cher to record but Donna Summer wanted it for herself and so it is today’s 101 Number One Song of the Day – “Hot Stuff”

The 101 number one song of the day was written and sung by a self confessed introvert whose songs were almost always based on personal experience. Although he was too modest to admit it, he had tremendous influence on many of rock’s biggest stars.   He was born in Vernon, Texas and grew up in Wink. His father gave him a guitar when he was six years old. By the time he was eight, he was playing on a Sunday morning country show on KVWC in Kermit. He almost gave away his first national hit to Elvis and the Everly Brothers. He arrived at Graceland at 6 in the morning and nobody was out of bed yet. Elvis sent down word that they could meet later in the day in Nashville. There he ran into Phil Everly and played him the song he’d written with his writing partner Joe Melson. Phil played him one of his own songs not realizing that today’s featured artist was playing him a song for the Everly Brothers to record. He was too shy to bring it up and Elvis hadn’t showed so he decided to record it himself. Shortly thereafter, he wrote today’s number one song in slightly more time than it took to record it. It arrived at number one June 5, 1961 – for Roy Orbison – “Running Scared”

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 women who were discovered by the famed production and writing team of Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller. They came across a song that was written for the Ronettes by Jeff Barry, Ellie Greenwich and Phil Spector. Leiber and Stoller wanted to have their new trio record the song but Phil Spector objected to the idea. No matter – they went ahead with their plan anyway and it became a huge hit – sitting atop the American charts on June 4, 1964 for the – Dixie Cups (Chapel of Love)
