Saturday Night Fun Number One Song
Tonight, we're going to go down memory lane a bit.
1) What was the #1 song on the day you were born? Or on your birthday when you were 15? Or when you married? Or some other important date in your life.
2) Go to http://www.thisdayinmusic.com/birthdayno1 and enter the date and select from UK, US or Australia record lists. Note: the first date available is 1 January 1946.
Alternatively, go to http://www.joshhosler.biz/ and enter the month and date and see a list of songs for each year since 1940.
June 14, 1948 (Flag Day) Number One Song was Nature Boy by Nat King Cole
June 14, 1963 (Flag Day) Number One Song was Sukiyaki by Kyu Sacamoto
June 1, 1971 Graduation Day from College, Number One Song Brown Sugar By The Rolling Stones
I never heard Nature Boy, that I remember, Sukiyaki sounds familiar, but I don't remember it either, and since I was not a fan of the Stones, don't remember Brown Sugar either.
