This song has the distinction of being the very first #1 hit on the American Top 40
syndicated radio program. The show, hosted by Casey Kasem, became popular on AM radio throughout the world until its decline in the mid-1990s. This beat out The Beatles' "The Long and Winding Road
" (their last hit record before the final breakup) and Elvis Presley's "The Wonder of You" for top chart honors in early August 1970.
