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: <a href="https://www.youtube.com/v/ksjj8J4e2LA" target="_blank" class="new_win">https://www.youtube.com/v/ksjj8J4e2LA</a>  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.

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.

 ;D  I know it well. VERY popular song. It's sad that I remember all these songs when I was in HIGH SCHOOL when Christopher was born.  :-\

Wait, you don't know "Do Your Really Want To Hurt Me"?  ???

Or "Dirty Laundry"?

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?



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.

I was thinking that was Boy George, but I don't know Culture Club. I've heard bits of his solo stuff.

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

<a href="https://www.youtube.com/v/PGNiXGX2nLU" target="_blank" class="new_win">https://www.youtube.com/v/PGNiXGX2nLU</a>

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!

<a href="https://www.youtube.com/v/7UMc2WyLrj0" target="_blank" class="new_win">https://www.youtube.com/v/7UMc2WyLrj0</a>

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. ;)
