What topped the charts when I was born

I first saw this on the The Virtual Stoa.

If you enter your date of birth into the Hit40 Birthday calculator you can find out what was the UK's number one single on your birth date (if you were born after 15 November 1952 that is).

In the hope that the number on on my birth date would be something that di not suck I duly entered the relevant information. Did I get the Stones or the Beatles? Did I hell! The UK chart topper was the forgotten Shadows instrumental Foot Tapper. Ah well. Just to show you how medoiocre it is, here they are performing it on datyime tv (I think)

You can see mine in my blog; at least mine isn't forgotten! I'm a regular visitor of your blog, I'm surprised I overlooked it on the making of my links section in the first place :)

Glad you like the Poor Mouth, Nightowl. I don't take myself that seriously as you will have realised by now!

Rubette's-Sugar Baby Love

Arrgh the Rubettes! Actually it is quite an inoffensive song but their dress sense was, well 1970s!

Mine is Elvis' She's Not You, which ain't too bad, but I'd have preffered (Marie's The Name of)His Latest Flame! And you can tell how old people are from this game too...
