Today is my official growing-older day! But as you know: old is gold, so I am becoming vintage by the year (and so are you). When you are thinking about your birthday some random thoughts may arise. From: “My birth month was probably the greatest month to be born in” to the obvious: “Greatest day of the year”. A step further is thinking a bit more serious about the actual events that happened the day you were born. For example: What song was on the #1 position in the hit charts.
I did some research and these were the songs that were on the #1 position on my birthday:
1) US (via Billboard):
Huey Lewis and the News – Stuck with you
2) UK ( via UK Single charts):
The Communards – Don’t leave me this way
3) Dutch Charts (via Michajans.nl):
Bruce Hornsby & the Range – The way it is
So the first one is definitely not my favorite song in history. As much as I love cheese, I don’t like cheesy songs. On the other hand everyone (in my family) was ofcourse happy to be stuck with me since September 25th, so we can take that one literally. And well…I can live with number 2 and 3. These are classics that I hear on the radio, especially at the end of the year when all the lovely Best-Songs-Of-All-Time charts come along. So, that was a piece of my official music chart history.
