While looking for Timelinable datasources, I ran into this: Date Engine - gives you the UK charts Number One records every year for any given date. I'm afraid I find pop trivia very distracting. So for my birthday over the years I've chosen:
Top 3 singles
- 1999 On your 35th birthday Fatboy Slim - "Praise You"
- I'm a bit tired of all the other FBS singles, this one I didn't even like at first
- 1964 On your birthdate the No. 1 single was The Dave Clark 5
- "Glad All Over
- cheery classic
- 1975 On your 11th birthday Status Quo - "Down Down"
- I've not been what you'd call a Quo fan since I was about 11, but still like this one
Bottom 3 singles
- 1972 On your 8th birthday The New Seekers - "I'd Like To
Teach The World To Sing"
- rots your teeth
- 1973 On your 9th birthday Little Jimmy Osmond - "Long Haired
Lover From Liverpool"
- rots your mind
- 2000 On your 36th birthday Westlife - "I Have A Dream /
Seasons In The Sun"
- a cover of one of the worst songs ever recorded/ the worst song ever recorded.
- rots your soul.
- 1969 On your 5th birthday Beatles - "The Beatles (The White
- I'm not really a Beatles fan, but there are some beauts on this
- 1967 On your 3rd birthday Original Soundtrack - "The Sound Of
- once when I babysat a friend's apparently delightful daughter, she played this (and mimed) continuously for about 8 hours. Hell holds no fears.
