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

I started with nothing - and I've still got most of it left.
Did you know that the word "gullible" is not in any dictionary?

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...

I wrapped a newspaper ’round my head
So I looked like I was deep

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...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Candle_in_the_Wind_1997

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:

as if this one didn't already do it

Like a bird on the wire,
like a drunk in a midnight choir
I have tried in my way to be free.
