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! Posted Image

I'm a bit older than most of you. Posted Image

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!! Posted Image

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!!
Three truths about movies, as noted by Roger Ebert:

* It's not what a movie is about, it's how it is about it.
* No good movie is too long, and no bad movie is short enough.
* No good movie is depressing, all bad movies are depressing.

On my birthday: US: "Beat It," Michael Jackson UK: "True," Spandau Ballet

Enough is enough, Disney. No more evasions or excuses. We DEMAND the release Song of the South on Blu-ray along with the uncut version of Bedknobs and Broomsticks on Blu-ray. I am going to boycott The Walt Disney Company until then. And while you're at it, PLEASE stop dropping DVD/laserdisc extras from Blu-ray releases of other films.
