Hey, that's a great song!

It's certainly better than "Car Wash" by Rose Royce.

May 13, 1975

The Number 1 single was:
Tammy Wynette - "Stand By Your Man"

The Number 1 album was:
Bay City Rollers - "Once Upon A Star"

 puke

At least I wasn't born in the disco era. Having "Boogie Oogie Oogie" as the number one song the day you're born has to have some bad side effects.

I've seen this before, I have a really odd one:

Quote

 On 19th Mar 1970 ...

The Number 1 single was:
Lee Marvin - "Wand'rin' Star"

The Number 1 album was:
Simon & Garfunkel - "Bridge Over Troubled Water"


Yes, THAT Lee Marvin.  From the movie Paint Your Wagon.  Which for years I thought was something they made up for The Simpsons, but no, it's real.

Damn. I remember all these songs! Can't believe some of them were number one hits tho. Oh,I believe the site is right just that the songs were bad and shouldn't have been that high.
