"Eight Days a Week" by the Beatles...no wonder they are my favorite band!

I was born a month early, as the Byrds' "Mr. Tambourine Man" topped the charts. Had I been born on schedule, the Stones' "Satisfaction" would have been #1 - appropriately enough, it was my first favorite song when I was a very small child. I have a very early memory of seeing the Stones on tv and my mom commenting about Mick, "That is the UGLIEST man I have ever seen!" - and from that moment on I knew they had to be really, really cool :)

hey mate. Mine was "American Pie" by Don McLean. In the UK it was The Seekers song, "I'd Like To Teach the World To Sing".

Lots of fun these kind of threads. Just sayin though Bruddah, there's actually one going already in 'Gen Discussion" about this too...
http://www.ukuleleunderground.com/forum/showthread.php?44049-What-was-1-on-the-day-you-were-born

Never got into Don McLean, except for that gorgeous song he wrote about Van Gogh, but always loved The Seekers and Judith Durham is a sweeeeeetie :)

Ha ha mine was Dave Edmunds " I hear you knocking " the funny thing is my oldest sister (10 years older than me ) actually had the single and when i was about 6 or so, i used to take his single from her collection and play it over and over, but it used to fascinate me playing it at 76 rpm, never ever knew that it was the #1 of my birth day kinda spooky :), bu the first ever single that i owned well that is a whole different story !!!!!!!!

Google just told me this........
The Hit of the Week record was a paper-based disc and sold for less than a quarter,
while most records were still priced at seventy-five cents.
I think they started with those discs in 1931,and they sound very well.
"When I take my sugar to tea"

Thanks Stan. Should probably get a vintage something. First car was a 1949 Willys Jeepster. Rust held it together. But my brother and I were well known on the Kona roads!

Not familiar with Michael Grimm but lyrics don't look right. Here's the Perry Como song, very early 50ish sounding, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Md4KqyA9ax0.

Can I go with Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds instead? It was the number 1 by the end of that week?

Mr. Blue by the Fleetwoods. Oddly, Mack The Knife was the top song for 6 weeks before and for 3 weeks after the week I was born. I don't know how or why the Fleetwoods slipped in there for only 1 week.

Delicado (Percy Faith) old enough there wasn't a video, just a sound track.

If I Knew You Were Coming (I'd have Baked a Cake)

I shudder to think what todays song writers would have put in the parenthesis.

Mine was " All I have to do is dream ", I probably shouldn't have pointed out to my bride that her's was "Hard headed women ". In retrospect I should have kept that to myself .

I feel the world waited 25 years to rick roll me. The song of the week on both sides of my birthday was Never gonna give you up, by Rick Astley

October 30, 1962.

The Monster Mash by Bobby "Boris" Pickett and The Crypt Kickers.

I get immense pleasure from the fact that that was the number one song in the country on the day I was born!

Ouch!!

Mine was, "Honky Tonk Woman" by the Rolling Stones. Hell Yeah, the summer of '69, baby!!!!! I was born on the last day of Woodstock. It ran over into Monday from the weekend. I like to think the music gods kept it over for me.

Never heard of it; "You're Breaking My Heart" Vic Damone, Sept. 4, 1949. (I prefer "Ghost Riders" from June 1949, what I'm planning to learn instrumentally.)
