What song was #1 on the day you were born


Recommended Posts

Have you ever done this?

Some people believe our lives are influenced by whatever pop song was #1 on the day we were born.

On the day Barack Obama was born it was Tossin’ And Turnin’ by Bobby Lewis

George W. Bush had The Gypsy by The Ink Spots

Bill Clinton - To Each His Own - Eddy Howard

Hillary Clinton - Near You - Francis Craig

On the day Heather Mills (ex Mrs McCartney) was born The Beatles were at #1 with Hello Goodbye!

See which songs you get

I hate that song. New Age pseudo-religious junk. ;)

Yeah, I figured a guy like you couldn't stand Hair. You're too invested in the establishment, man. You need to "get back" and "let the sunshine in" Jesus was the first hippy, you know.

It is a great counter culture uber liberal song, plus as a playwright and a theatre guy it works. This song stuff is better than astrology ;)

Forget the US and Britain, the Aussies got it right on my birthday.

I loved this song as kid!

Snoopy Vs. The Red Baron by The Royal Guardsmen

After the turn of the century

In the clear blue skies over Germany

Came a roar and a thunder men had never heard

Like the scream and the sound of a big war bird

Up in the sky, a man in a plane

Baron von Richthofen was his name

Eighty men tried, and eighty men died

Now they're buried together on the countryside


Ten, twenty, thirty, forty, fifty or more

The Bloody Red Baron was rollin' out the score

Eighty men died tryin' to end that spree

Of the Bloody Red Baron of Germany

In the nick of time, a hero arose

A funny-looking dog with a big black nose

He flew into the sky to seek revenge

But the Baron shot him down--"Curses, foiled again!"


Now, Snoopy had sworn that he'd get that man

So he asked the Great Pumpkin for a new battle plan

He challenged the German to a real dogfight

While the Baron was laughing, he got him in his sight

That Bloody Red Baron was in a fix

He'd tried everything, but he'd run out of tricks

Snoopy fired once, and he fired twice

And that Bloody Red Baron went spinning out of sight

pop music was so horrible in the early 60's I was afraid to look and the results were unrecognizable. When I was in my single digits I listened mostly to R&B, motown, blues, and the harder rock (rare earth, ccr, black sabath, hendrix, johnny winter, procal harem, cream...) a great time to grow up minus the top 40 garbage.

some of you younger guys are pulling up brittany, maddona, rap and crap like like that lol.

They didnt even have my year in there... closest thing is 91. And for 87 Rick Astley was at the top of the charts :doh:

1991, Nirvana recorded a performance for BBC TV music show Top Of The Pops in London. When asked to lip-sync ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ to a pre-recorded tape Kurt Cobain protests by singing in a low-pitched funny voice with the rest of the band not even trying to mime in-time to the track.
