What was #1 the Day You were Born?

Billboard Music - Billboard #1 Hits

What was the #1 song on the day you were born? Do you know? Do you care? Will it haunt you at night now that I mentioned it until you check? Good.

Click on the link above then click the Billboard #1 Hits on the toolbar in blue to find the decade you were born. Click that to bring up the lists for that decade, find your year and then within that the week you were born. Viola. Your #1 song on the day you were born.

Mine is Gary Lewis and the Playboys - "This Diamond Ring".

My wife's is the Association - "Cherish".

My son's is Mariah Carey - "Fantasy".

What's yours?

Hi Martin! Well, at least you had a cool song--the No.1 when I was born was 'The Monster Mash'!

What I found interesting was that I have 5 brothers and sisters, we're all born in the 1960s (except for the youngest in '75) and not ONE of us landed on a week when the Beatles had a Number one--always the week before or week after!
