    Re: See what song was #1 on the day you were born

    My UK song is a song I've never heard of:
    I don't wanna dance - Eddy Grant

    As for the US I have Up Where We Belong with Joe Cocker and Jennifer Warnes.

    Finally, the song I like the most (out of these three), for Australia Come on Eileen, Dexy Midnight Runners.

    Bama, I don't see why you're not impressed. I like those songs!

    Crit, Those were the days/Mary Hopkin was the first song released by the Beatles' label Apple. It was a huge hit (well, it was number one). I rather like it.

    Re: See what song was #1 on the day you were born

    Soldier Boy by the Shirelles in the US

    Nutrocker-B Bumble and the Stingers in the UK

    I've been Everywhere-Lucky Starr in Australia

    Weird, I'd say that these songs had some influence. I married a Soldier Boy, I am interested in military history and ever nut in the world finds me eventually and I've done a LOT of traveling in my life.

    Not that I've heard of any of the songs (unless Lucky Starr's is a version of Johnny Cash's "I've been Everywhere")

    Oh I like 'em but I was hoping for something besides Beatles..I'm not a HUGE Beatles fan! I like Manny's and I love the 5th Dimension!

    I wasn't able to come up with anything on the actual day/month/year I was born. It was like it skipped a couple of years in between.
    Yup, with donuts!!

    That's exactly what I thought, Crit . . . even older.

    #1s at the beginning of time:
    US: "Runaway" - Del Shannon
    UK: "Wooden Heart" - Elvis Presley
    AUS: "Runaway" - Del Shannon

    Just for kicks and giggles, I also ran the dates for my 21st birthday:
    US: "I Love Rock 'n Roll" - Joan Jett & The Blackhearts
    UK: "Ebony & Ivory" - Paul McCartney with Michael Jackson
    AUS: "What About Me" - Moving Pictures ???

    Lonnie Donnegan was from Scotland. He was part of the skiffle movement in the UK during the late 50" & early 60's. Google him & I presume you can find samples of "skiffle" music.

    Here in the US he had a big hit in 1961 with that well known & world renowned song " Does Your Chewing Gum Lose It's Flavor On The Bedpost Overnight?"

    bug, if you enter the date on the left side of the page, you should be able to find it. The right side of the page where you can enter day and month is just random "on this day" music history.
