There is a thread like this on QT3 that I found amusing so I thought I'd pose the same question here. What was the top song in the US and UK the day you were born?

Here are mine:

US: "I Love Rock 'n' Roll" - Joan Jett and the Blackhearts
UK:  "Ebony & Ivory" - Paul McCartney with Stevie Wonder

Here are mine:
US: "One Bad Apple" - The Osmonds     thumbsdown
UK: "My Sweet Lord" - George Harrison   thumbsup

At least the UK had some taste in music that week.

Me too!  I've always loved the song (very funny hearing the live version of it) and had no idea it was #1 when I was born.

Classic in the sense that it is cheesy fun (much like Tie a Yellow Ribbon). There's a lot of 70s songs that I know are pure cheese, but bring back a lot of memories of being a little kid and seeing stuff on the Jerry Lewis telethon or variety shows or AM radio, etc.

January 27th 1976

UK-Queen Bohemian Rhapsody
spent 9 weeks at number 1 from 29/11/75....Abba-Mamma Mia replaced it on the 31st Jan 76..thank god for Queen!!
(strangely enough Bohemian Rhapsody contains the lyrics Mamma Mia,Mamma Mia)


US-Theme from Mahogany (Do You Know Where You're Going To)-Diana Ross icon_biggrin

i would rather have a more 'Beatley' themed birthday,but never mind


EDIT:oh and that site Eel Snave put up,for some reason puts up January 31st number 1s,instead of January 27th like i asked

When I was looking for the answer today I picked up a nasty virus called Internet Security 2010. Spent most of the afternoon figuring out how to get rid of it. I think I got it at that site when it opened a video player window. Fortunately removal was pretty easy once I figured out what was going on.

I have heard that the number one way to pick up a trojan or virus in not porn but music lyrics. Music lyrics? My Spy Sweeper has stopped many a one when I have gone to music lyric sites.
