    My number 1's are
    Day Tripper/We Can work it out - The Beatles (UK & Australia)
    Turn!Turn!Turn! - The Byrds (U.S.)

    Great songs! We can work it out could easily be my life's theme song.

    Be warned, I'm old:

    #1 on day I was born:
    US: Rag Doll - The Four Seasons
    UK/AU: A Hard Days Night - The Beatles

    And as for this "life's theme song" on one's 18th birthday: Eye Of The Tiger - Survivor

    Um, I don't think so!

    let's see what mine are:

    Day I was born:

    US: Cat's In The Cradle - Harry Chapin
    UK: Lonely This Christmas - Mud (never heard of this song)
    AUS: Kung Fu Fighting - Carl Douglas (LOL - that song made it to #1?)

    18th Bday

    US: I Will Always Love You - Whitney Houston
    UK: I WIll Always Love You - Whitney Houston
    AUS: I Will Always Love You - Whitney Houston

    Wow, she did well that day! Guess I only get one 'life song'...

    21st Bday:

    US: One Sweet Day - Mariah Carey with Boyz II Men
    UK: Earth Song - Michael Jackson
    AUS: Gangsta's Paradise - Coolio

    I don't know any of the wedding day songs. Man, unfair! Lots of you got Beatles Songs, etc. I got Kung Fu Fighting. What does that say about me? Maybe I should enroll in a martial arts class or someting...hidden talent?
