This tells you what was #1 in the charts, UK or US, on any date after 1/1/52. Trivia I know, but fun.

Steve, do you remember Bob Marley singing on the same set as the wurzels? Classic Jimmy Saville. I had Bryan Adams, that everything I do that was number one long enough for most of the populations 18th birthday.
Well no, If I was singing it to the midget and throwing 100 bills at it, it could be a life song....

What the Hey? "Wild Thing" was number one the day I was born.

07-26-2006, 10:35 PM
You ever hear The Wurzels' song? Rubbish, but in a harmless way.

07-26-2006, 10:51 PM
So TOTP is no more. Jimmy "Now then, now then" Saville, Tony "Pathetic" Blackburn, Diddy David Hamilton, bad lip syncing, dire pop songs - another reason why I left the old country.

07-26-2006, 11:25 PM
I get "16 Tons",& "Time in a Bottle"
for my 18th.
1 out of two.

Yeah, it's hard to explain to our new home who Mr. Blobby is and why he's #1. There's no excuse for that.

My "life" song, "Merry Xmas Everybody" - Recorded by Slade.

"Do the fairies keep him sober for the day?"

Slade were from my home town, so rather appropriate I suppose.

Too old for the b'day hit (tho I think it was Patti Paige "How Much is that Doggie..") but the 18th was "Mony-Mony" (T. James & Shondells) in England and "Hello, I Love You" (Doors) in the US... I received the "Waiting for the Sun" vinyl LP as a gift from my GF that day. Still have it, it's well played and not at all abused.
