What song was #1 the day you were born?

Post by Natasha (candygirl) » Mar 7th 2006, 9:36 pm

This site has compiled all the Billboard #1 lists so that you can see what song was #1 on any given day. In honor of my birthday, I thought I'd see what song was #1 on the day fellow MSCLers were born!

Have You Never Been Mellow by Olivia Newton-John was #1 the day I was born. My mom had this album and I loved listening to it as a kid.

To Be With You by Mr. Big was #1 on my birthday my senior year of high school - that song is awesome!

Look, if this is weird for you, being tutored? I don't mind helping you a little longer.
You could have sex with me if you really want to help...I guess that's a "no"?

Where is the link, candygirl? :?
Um, in my room, one seam is a little off and I stare at it constantly. It's, like, destroying me.

D'oh! It must have been the sugar coma that made me forget to include the link!

Have You Never Been Mellow by Olivia Newton-John was #1 the day I was born.
Heh, since you were born almost exactly nine months before me, I now know the song that was probably #1 when I was conceived :-)


"Fly, Robin, Fly" by Silver Convention was #1 in the US on my birthday... Okay, I'm drawing a complete blank. "Silver Convention" rings a bell ("Get Up and Boogie"), but "Fly, Robin, Fly"!? Let's see who was #1 in Germany at that time ... ah, yes, I know that one: "Lady Bump" by Penny McLean. I missed "SOS" by ABBA only by a few days.


The day MSCL premiered on TV: "I'll Make Love to You" by Boyz II Men
The day the last episode aired:"Creep" by TLC
The day it was officially cancelled: "This Is How We Do It" by Montell Jordan

"You Light Up My Life" by Debby Boone - never heard of it, or her... but it is the USA Billboard.

[research hat icon]

In the UK, it was Abba - "The Name of the Game". Man, I hate Abba. :(

Man, I must be getting old, I remember "Hey Mickey" and "Jump". Both are cool songs. Now to really date myself. I remember "You light up my life". When I was a little kid, my Mom loved that song, she played it all the time.

I must have a sugsr coated sugar coma hangover becos I can't find the link. I do know that "Live and Let Die" by Wings not Guns and Roses was either number one the day I was born or at least on the top 10. Wicked song. :P

Correction...Sorry Seems to Be the Hardest Word by Elton John so I've been told. *Babydoll* :wink:

Since the original link is longer working, here's an updated link to the Billboard 100 Archives:
