Welcome to This Day in Barrington History
Welcome to the first day February! It’s officially February 1st and and Day 32 of 365 in Barrington, Illinois! You’ll find our stories of the day – past, present & future (events) – right here on today’s DailyPage.
Because every day has its own rhythm, we’re sharing a song of the day here at 365Barrington.com.
On this day, February 1st in 1969, Tommy James and the Shondells started a two week run at No.1 on the US singles chart with one of my Top 5 Favorite Songs of All Time, ‘Crimson And Clover’, the group’s second and last No.1. Billy Idol had a 1987 US No.1 with ‘Mony Mony’ a No.3 hit for Tommy James in 1968 and Joan Jett and the Blackhearts also covered Crimson And Clover on their debut LP in 1981.
