    Have you seen this? thisdayinmusic.com

    It has some good music trivia and facts and it shows you what was No.1 in the charts on the day you were born.

    (Go to Birthday No.1 at the top of the site, you don't have to log in it's free).

    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

    Some songs are better than others! [​IMG]

    On my B-day, the #1's were....

    UK....Massachusetts - The Bee Gees
    US....To Sir With Love - Lulu

    Hmmm....Lulu would go on to marry Maurice Gibb of the Bee Gees.

    I'm a bit older than most of you. [​IMG]

    US: "Honeycomb" - Jimmie Rodgers
    UK: "Diana" - Paul Anka

    At least I know both of these.

    My "life's theme song" is

    US: "I'm Sorry" - John Denver

    Boy, that's the truth!! [​IMG]

    UK: "Everything I Own" - Ken Boothe

    I'm stumped - never heard of it (unless it's a cover of Bread's hit of the same name).

    Edit - Thanks to Google, I now know that Ken Boothe is a rather well-known reggae artist. My bad. And yes, this is a reggae cover of what happens to be my favorite Bread song - and thanks, to iTunes, I'm enjoying it right now!!
