Have you ever done this?

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

I think it was probably the 1812 Overture.................................. :oops:

On my birth date, the number one song (that I've never heard of) was "The Poor People of Paris" by Les Baxter. Yes, I'm old.

Album: Soundtrack from Mary Poppins

Song: Mrs. Brown, you've got a lovely daughter by Herman's Hermits.
Actually, I've always sung along to that song...

Man, I've never even heard of the songs or artists that were #1 on my B-Day. :(

"Wooden Heart" -Joe Dowell U.S. :roll:
"You Don't Know" -Helen Shapiro U.K. :?
"Smokey Mokes" -Joy Boys :shock: Sounds like an 80's boy band!?!?! And what is a "smokey moke". Or any other kind of moke for that matter?

But, hey, "Wooden Heart", I got a new one for the song association game :lol:

But, on my wedding day, it was "Irreplaceable" by Beyonce... aaaaaawwwwwwww. Obviously referring to my wife :wink:

Interesting, everyone.

This is sooo right for me, and I wondered why it was stuck in my head, 'long with forceps, towels 'n stuff. :roll:

... and for my sweetest baby child, on the day she was born: (get your magnifying glass) I actually bought this...

Beauty left us, not once but twice for that song, but I feel blessed even though it was a very bad year. I have loved Marilyn Monroe all my life, and Princess Diana when we knew her.

Not to be morbid, but I can never forget that year, while others are less remarkable. We also lost Denver Pyle (Dukes of Hazzard), Pat Paulsen, Brian Keith, Robert Mitchum, Jacques Cousteau, Gianni Versace (that fashion designer), Red Skelton, Mother Teresa (of course - big news), John Denver (miss you bro), Michael Hutchence (INXS & God Bless You), Nicolette Larson- sweet angel voice, and last but not least Michael Kennedy, son of Robert Kennedy, on December 31.

Since this is about music, looking on the brighter side, we will always have John Denver, Nicolette Larson and Michael 'Immortal' Hutchence.

And here's a song that just nails this topic of birth from Nicolette: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yOdBDatm ... re=related as if this one didn't already do it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hnPtTOX6 ... re=related
