Today’s 101 #1 Song of the Day would be the second of three number one songs for the American rock group responsible…they scored 13 top 40 hits but all of their chart toppers – were power ballads  The group was formed on the campus of the University of Illinois and their first gig was a frat party that turned into a food fight – but they kept playing those types of gigs and their popularity grew throughout the Midwest – especially as they added their own material. While they changed lead singers three times for three back to back albums, the singer on the song you’re about to hear wrote two of their 3 chart-toppers. We’re talking about Kevin Cronin of REO Speedwagon and “Can’t Fight This Feeling” was #1 on this day in 1985 and it spent three weeks atop the Billboard Chart (the other #1’s were “Keep on Lovin’ You” and “Take it on the Run”
