Title: Your Song
Post by: Matt on January 07, 2016, 04:35:29 PM
What was the #1 song the day you were born? Mine is so perfectly fitting.... "Help!" (The Beatles)

Here's the link.  Post yours.

Geez, I was hoping I get a Beatles song too.

Nope. Sugar Sugar by The Archies.  :-[

That song is almost as annoying as a Chipmunks song.  :-[

Haha I like "Sugar Sugar." :D

My song is Mickey by Toni Basil. I had no idea what that song was until I looked it up on youtube. For your viewing pleasure: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NW7VnHnX3LQ

No, I won't watch that video.  You and SK have the two most annoying songs I can think of that weren't recorded by the Chipmunks.  I always hated "Mickey", and that video, too.

Mine's "Bridge Over Troubled Water" by Simon and Garfunkel. Had I been born a day later, it would have been "Let It Be." But that's okay, I've come to really dislike that Beatles song.

Bridge Over Troubled Water (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jjNgn4r6SOA)

That song makes me think of MASH.

"He Don't Love You Like I Love You" by Tony Orlando and Dawn

Pretty cheesy.

What's sad is that I remember yours and Christopher's songs being popular. Tony Orlando and Dawn had their own variety show that I remember having seen a bunch of times.

I realize I'm older than everyone (so far) in this thread.  ::)  But, does anyone remember this song?

The Hustle (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wj23_nDFSfE)

I'm so glad I was only 10 years old when this came out. Can you imagine being in your 20's or 30's and having to dress/dance like this to pick up girls? I think I'd die first.

The one that your link said for me was "ABC" by the Jackson 5. But every other resource I have used has said The Guess Who's "American Woman". Including this site...

http://www.thisdayinmusic.com/birthdayno1

According to that one, the number one song in the U.S. was, indeed, "American Woman" while the number one song in the UK and also in Canada was Norman Greenbaum's "Spirit in the Sky", and the number one song in Australia was The Beatles' "Let it Be".

Mine's still "Bridge Over Troubled Water." In Australia it was "Let It Be" and in Germany Led Zeppelin's "Whole Lotta Love."

Man, all four of them are great songs. It was a great time for music.

According to your link, mine is still "Help!" in the U.S.

In the U.K.:  (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction

In Germany and Australia "Il Silenzio" by Nini Rosso: https://www.youtube.com/v/ksjj8J4e2LA  Sounds like Taps  :-\

And in Canada "My Name is Mud" by Eddie Rambeau.  Ugh. 

Glad the U.S. and U.K. bought good music that week.

Here's the only other thing it mentions for '82:

Quote
1982, The Jam played their last ever gig as a band when they appeared in Brighton, England. Singer and guitarist Paul Weller went on to form The Style Council with keyboardist Mick Talbot. The permanent line-up grew to include drummer Steve White and Weller's then-wife, vocalist Dee C. Lee.

Holden's link will allow you to see the #1 song on the day you were born in Canada, U.K., Germany, and Australia. That's what I was asking about.
Title: Re: Your Song
Post by: Christopher on March 17, 2016, 03:47:51 PM
Oh, I was using the drop down menu to the right of that, and figured that all the results would be included in that.

#1 song in UK was Beat Surrender - The Jam
Australia: Pass The Dutchie - Musical Youth
Canada: Dirty Laundry - Don Henley
Germany: Do You Really Want to Hurt Me? - Culture Club

Offhand I don't know any of those songs. I'll have to look them up to see if I've heard them before.

I've never heard of Pass The Dutchie or the group, Musical Youth. The others I at least know the artists.

I'm thinking this is definitely the first time I've heard it. One of the comments mentions the Scooby Doo movie and The Wedding Singer, which I've seen Wedding Singer but don't remember this song in it.

Yes, I do recognize that song. I was also just thinking that that sounded like the guy from the Eagles, and I see that is the case! I didn't know his name though.

I'm not familiar with any of the other songs.

Do you know who Boy George of Culture Club is?

(http://hdwallpaperbackgrounds.net/wp-content/uploads/2015/09/Boy-George-Wallpapers-HD1.jpg)

It's not like you're missing out on a helluva lot, but he was a huge part of the 1980's. You should be familiar with some of their songs, just for music history's sake.
Title: Re: Your Song
Post by: Christopher on March 17, 2016, 05:38:46 PM
I was thinking that was Boy George, but I don't know Culture Club. I've heard bits of his solo stuff.

Post by: Matt on March 17, 2016, 05:47:52 PM
I have to share this... it's not one of your birth songs, Christopher, but it was from that same era... maybe a month or two off?  Anyway, whenever I think of Culture Club/Boy George, I remember this song. It was the best bad video of the 1980's. It's been remade, you probably know one of the remakes... this is the original.  ;D

https://www.youtube.com/v/PGNiXGX2nLU

And yes, you're getting that in full 650x390 size because it has to be seen at least once. Welcome to the 80's.

For some trivia... the lead singer, Robert Arquette (sibling of Patricia, Rosanna and David Arquette, and one more Arquette I don't know... Richmond) was in Pulp Fiction.  And he was in one of the greatest scenes!

https://www.youtube.com/v/7UMc2WyLrj0

Yes, the man who was hiding, and had a clear shot at our favorite hitmen, and still missed. They didn't miss him.

Anyway, Robert is now Alexis, and fully transitioned. There's a movie about the transition Alexis Arquette: She's My Brother.  Haven't seen it.

But that's just some music trivia from the year you were born. ;)

Man, my thinking is getting so disorganized in my "old age". I meant to include above that the name of the band that did it originally was Dead or Alive, like it says on the video... it's not Culture Club, they're just a band with a similar vibe going on.

Okay, I'll turn this back over to those who haven't posted their songs yet. Who's left?  :)

That's what I figured you meant.

I took another look at the original video after watching the Flo Rida version (and I do like that one as well). Robert Arquette, in that original, with some of his dance moves reminds me of Rick Astley from a few years later (1987's "Never Going to Give You Up). ;D

Yeah, it really is a great song! It's got a great groove, and of course it sounds like the Eagles, but I actually feel like it has a Pink Floyd vibe a little bit too.
