Bit of fun here...

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

On the day Barack Obama (August 4, 1961) was born Bobby Lewis was at #1 with 'Tossin’ And Turnin’

On the day Sarah Palin was born, The Beatles were at #1 with 'I Want To Hold Your Hand'.

On the day John McCain was born (Aug 29th 1936), the pop charts hadn't been invented.*

My number #1's are:
'You're So Vain' by Carly Simon in the US
'Long Haired Lover From Liverpool' by Little Jimmy Osmond in the UK
'Ben' by Michael Jackson in Australia

See which songs you get

On my day, I know the #1 song in the US very well, never heard of the British song or singer and the AU charts didn't exist yet....

Charts did not exist in Australia until 1957/8 but the most popular/notorious/ scandalous :eek: song when I was born was Rock around the clock,,,Bill Haley and his Commets.

Second and less controversial was Hold your hand,,,Nat King Cole.

Don't actually rember listening to either of them on that day though but love listening to Bill Haley now:))

Cheers.

Tiggy,

You are of course referring to when it was released in 1975 and became a hit in the UK? Would think you a gentleman not to believe that I was born in 1930 when it was first released:)
