Today’s 101 #1 Song of the Day was the third offering by the performers to a director who was looking for songs for a movie. The director had become just a little obsessed with the artists and he was listening to them non-stop. He actually rejected the first two songs they sent him but the third time was a charm for the duo. Interestingly enough, the writer wasn’t keen on the idea of doing a soundtrack – he thought it was “selling out” but he liked the script and agreed to write for it but ended up going back to an older song called “Mrs. Roosevelt” which the director, Mike Nichols, loved. You might know now what “Roosevelt” got changed to…it was on the soundtrack for The Graduate. Simon and Garfunkel with “Mrs. Robinson” – your 101 #1 Song of the Day.
