    Bit of fun here, have you ever done this? http://www.thisdayinmusic.com

    It shows you what song was at No.1 on the day you were born.

    (Go to 'Birthday No.1' at the top of the site).

    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

    Some songs are better than others!

    Parents have a tradition of buying the no1s for the day we were born so I've got the Enya single somewhere...
