Have you ever done this?

What was #1 on the day you were born.

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

Really?

Mine is "a whiter shade of pale" (original version, not one of the more than 900 cover versions) which apparently even in 2009 is the most played song in public places.

LOL, luckily I'm young enough to have missed that Llew, just caught the tail end of rationing.:)

The UK charts didn't start until late 1952.:)

But I would have guessed that someone like Johnny Ray, Nat King Cole, Rosemary Clooney, or Frankie Lane would have been at the top if there had been.:)

Cripes, you are a young 'un!

Red Red Wine was written and recorded by Neil Diamond as far back as 1968 :)
