My Number 1 Hit Me Hard

My sister recently sent me a website developed solely for the cruel purpose of demonstrating just how old those accessing it are. Do you want to feel old too?

One key to understanding how much the world has changed since your birth and how many years have passed by is learning what song was Billboard’s Number 1 hit on the day you were born.
I made my grand entrance into the world with The Bee Gees “Jive Talkin” playing in the background. How about you?

Oh God. On the day I was born, Neil Sedaka was #1 with "Laughter In the Rain." Did I really want to know that? :)

"Pick Up the Pieces" by The Average White Band. I don't even know what that is, and I am glad to not do any investigation whatsoever. :)

"Jive Talkin'", though. Yikes.

"Philadelphia Freedom" by The Elton John Band
Sir Elton was a busy MF-er in the 70s, wasn't he? I think I got off pretty easy on this one.

John said...

"Car Wash" by Rose Royce...timeless.

Good Lord, I AM old..."I want to be Wanted" by Brenda Lee on October 18th, 1960(on my one year birthday, it was Runaround Sue, by Dion-a much cooler song)

And my song is "Upside Down" by Diana Ross

Okay, I think Neenee's makes me feel the oldest... probably because I actually remember it playing on the radio in my parent's car.

And Jive Talkin was on the radio like 4 times this weekend....

OMG..... Kung Fu Fighting..the sad thing is, I knew this without looking on the Billboard website!

"Ain't No Mountain High Enough" by Diana Ross. Victor came in to "Light My Fire" by the Doors. He may be older, but his songs rocks!

Music went on a fast descent during the 70s. Well, I guess that's actually music, fashion, architecture, art.... at least the 70s produced many of us, so the decade isn't all bad.

Seasons in the Sun! A song I like, but I always thought it was so old...and now it is confirmed that I am old too....Ron's is ABC by the Jackson 5 - I can't wait to tell him!!!!
