My Birthday song is... (#1 hits on Billboard 100)

Recommended Posts

October 24 1987:

Australia: La Bamba - Los Lobos

UK: You Win Again - The Bee Gees

US: Bad - Michael Jackson

October 24 2005:

Australia: Too embarrassing to mention

UK: I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor - Arctic Monkeys

US: Uh, also too embarrassing

Yeah, I'll take the Arctic Monkeys for my life's theme. It's better than most songs that have hit #1 in the last few years, like those other two I refuse to mention. :crazy:

On the day of my birth the number one song in the nation was "It's All in The Game" by Tommy Edwards. The top UK hit was "Carolina Moon/Stupid Cupid" by Connie Francis.

Skip ahead to the day I became a teener and Rod Stewart's "Maggie May" was topping the US and UK charts.

Finally, I turn 18 and the top US hit was "Disco Duck" by Rick Dees. While in the UK it was "Mississippi" by Pussycat.
