Some people believe our lives are profoundly influenced by whatever pop song was number one on the day we were born.

On the day Heather Mills (the ex Mrs McCartney) was born (12th Jan 1968) it was Hello Goodbye by The Beatles!

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

wasn't there a similar thread before?

I think it was 'Come on Eileen' in the UK and 'Eye of the Tiger' in the US, which I'm pretty pleased about!

On the day Barack Obama (August 4, 1961) was born Bobby Lewis was at #1 with 'Tossin’ And Turnin’

Obama shares his birthday with Louis Armstrong who had the 1968 UK No.1 single 'What A Wonderful World.'*

On the day Sarah Palin was born, The Beatles were at #1 with 'I Want To Hold Your Hand'.

And on that day (Feb 11th 1964), The Beatles made their live concert debut in the US at the Washington Coliseum. Over 350 police surrounded the stage to keep the 8,000 plus screaming fans in control. One police officer who found the noise so loud, stuck a bullet in each ear as ear plugs.
