    As the title says:
    What was the number one hit in your country at your birthday?
    Here's a list of the American #1 hits. You can most likely find your country's charts in a same way.

    Here's the one for The Netherlands, 25 October 1979. Quite suitable for a birthday party! :D



    The number one hit in America at that time was nice, too.

    I need an official ruling. Are we supposed to pick the song before or after our birthday if the chart didn't include the actual day? In any case here are the two that surrounded my date of birth.





    Awesome thread by the way. Rep on its way

    I can't find data for my birthday - the nearest I can find is the Top 20/30 for week 27, which is some 14 weeks before I was born.

    No. 1 - Beatles: Long Tall Sally



    (No. 2 was also Beatles - Roll over Beethoven.)

    No. 3 - Elvis Presley: Suspicion



    No. 4 - Cliff Richard: Constantly



    No. 5 - Millie: My Boy Lollipop

    Thanks for the kind words, guys! :) I thought this might be another way to make music personal, without asking what songs you like or have special memories with (Which are usually the 2 factors that make music personal, I guess). Too bad though, that some countries don't have easily accessible data. Also, some older people might have trouble finding their song.

    Good one! I guess most pop-charts rank the songs for the upcoming week, so I suppose we need the song on the date just before your birthday.

    I wanted to say there are some really good songs posted here, but... yeah... they're all #1 hits, so that's kinda needless to say. :D

    In the URL of the video, you see a code consisting of 11 signs. Wrap that code in Youtube-tags, et voila.

    I must say. Some songs shouldn't have made it to the #1 spot... :p
