Four-time Grammy award winner and Grammy Hall of Fame inductee, B.J. Thomas is celebrating the 45th anniversary of his classic number one hit “(Hey Won’t You Play) Another Somebody Done Somebody Wrong Song.” Written by Larry Butler and Chips Moman, B.J. Thomas reached the top of the Billboard charts in 1975 and was ranked the Number 17 top song for 1975, winning a Grammy Award for Best Country Song in 1976. The single, just as relevant and catchy in the 1970s as it is today, invites listeners into a world where love leaves one lonely and the only thing that heals is the sweet simple melodies of a song.
“(Hey Won’t You Play) Another Somebody Done Somebody Wrong Song,” was the last song we recorded for the “Reunion” album and I am so glad it was included. It was produced by Chips Moman and the Memphis Boys and is the longest title to top the Hot 100 charts. Thanks for the #1!”
Orginally entering the Billboard Hot 100 in 1975, “(Hey Won’t You Play) Another Somebody Done Somebody Wrong Song,” ended up becoming B.J. Thomas’ second #1 hit.
