Who Was At Number One When You Were Born?

Today is my birthday and I thought it would be fun to check out who was at number one on the actual day of my birth. I was hoping for a cool tune being a music blogger n'all, so I used this website to check it all out:

Here are my results:

UK Number One Single: Leo Sayer - "When I Need You"
US Number One Single: Eagles - "New Kid In Town"

Well, umm not quite what I was hoping for but I suppose it could have been worse and in the spirit of the name of this blog, maybe now we can see where my influences came from -it was beyond my control!

So who was at number one when you were born?


I guess I have to add the video so here it is, Leo Sayer - When I Need You. Check out the people in the background around 2mins, there's Leo being all cool and then they wander into the background-nice budget video :-)






Total random bits of info:

On this day in 1947 the Polaroid camera was demonstrated for the first time by its inventor, Edwin Land and the phrase "take a Polaroid" entered the English language.

Famous people born on February 21st include:

Nina Simone 1933
David Geffen 1943

(I'm sure there are many more!)

There are 314 days remaining until the end of the year

On this day in 1952 The British government, under Winston Churchill, abolished Identity Cards in the UK to "set the people free"


On this day in 1960 Cuban leader Fidel Castro nationalized all businesses in Cuba


Whatever you're doing, have a great day.

To help you with that here's one of my all time favourite performers, Nina Simone with Feeling Good

A Very Happy Birthday! Same day as Nina? Wow, now that's auspicious. You just had to write about music.
