    For me it was:
    In the U.K. No.1 was"Woman" by
    John Lennon
    and in the US "Celebration" by
    Kool and the Gang

    Not sure if I should be insulted by the first, but the latter was quite fitting :D

    On the day I was born, "Mr. Sandman (Bring me a dream)" by the Chordettes was number one. That was in December of 1954.

    Return With Us Now to the Thrilling Days of Yesteryear....

    On my birthday, the number ! song was "Buttons and Bows" by Dinah Shore. Yeah, the lady with the afternoon variety show. She used to sing, "See the USA in your Chevrolet". Chevy was a big sponsor.

    I came to find out that Frank Zappa died on my birthdate ,(12-4), back in 1993.

    Yes boys and girls, you'll probably have to Google ALL of this.:p :D

    No way!
    No one with your maturity (cough) could put up with the youth of today
    You do realize that the techs of today are proud to announce that they belong to messenger and all the rest of that rubbish that techs fought against many years ago.
    Anyway, glad you're older than me.

    I am delighted to find out that you believe the demeanor of my posting indicates that I can in fact, put up with the youth of today. Now, I'll see your cough, and raise you an "ahem".:rolleyes: :haha:

    Hmm, brief search didn't bring much, but I'd say its probably Michael Jackson, sadly.

    Not sure that music had even been invented when I was born...and it would have had to been live music because electricity surely did not exist...

    Sure, but in which key.....?

    I think James Taylor was quoted as saying, "I will now play the electric guitar, an outgrowth of more primitive instruments such as the gas and the steam guitar".
