What song was #1 on the day you were born

Have you ever done this?

Some people believe our lives are profoundly influenced by whatever pop song was #1 on the day we were born.

On the day Heather Mills (the ex Mrs McCartney) was born (12th Jan 1968) it was Hello Goodbye by The Beatles!

My number #1's are:
'You're So Vain' by Carly Simon in the US
'Long Haired Lover From Liverpool' by Little Jimmy Osmond in the UK
'Ben' by Michael Jackson in Australia

See which songs you get
This day in Music

Apperently 'Dancing In The Street' by David Bowie & Mick Jagger was #1 on the day I was born.

Did that have any influence on how I turned out?

Probably.
