A Hard Day's Night by the Beatles was the number 1 song in the US and in the UK the day I was born.

Oh man! Does Erin need to pay royalties to Michael Jackson for that?

Brooks said @ 08/10/2004 09:03 PM PST

happy b-day, dead man walking.

btw, mine was "mr. tambourine man" by the byrds. how crappy is that?

copygodd said @ 08/10/2004 09:49 PM PST

The Byrds had some great songs... Mr. Tambourine Man wasn't one of them. Thanks everyone! I'm going to go home now so I can get back here at 7am. AAHhhhhh!

Brooks said @ 08/10/2004 10:55 PM PST

"Magic" by Olivia Newton-John. :-)

You have a pretty cool number #1 song for your birthday. Anything by the Beatles is all good.

Happy 40th Birthday to a fellow Leo! :-D

Corinne said @ 08/11/2004 12:55 AM PST

Happy Birthday! As a kid, I used to hate having a birthday in August because I never had a school party, but now I realize it's the best time to have one.

In the jungle, the mighty jungle, the lion sleeps tonight...

Ontario Emperor said @ 08/11/2004 07:56 PM PST

I know I'm really late on this one, but I just had to include my #1 on my birth date. Are ya ready? #1 was shared that day by two songs (aren't I lucky?) - Butterfly, by Charlie Gracie (huh?), and Round and Round, by Perry Como. Now, am I NOT the oldest person we know? And by the way, a very belated happy birthday, Brooks.

Dame! said @ 08/12/2004 07:21 AM PST

I'm a little late on this one, but you'll get a kick out of my #1. I even had a tie on the date of my birth. They are: Butterfly, by Charlie Gracie (huh?), and Round and Round, by Perry Como. There - am I not old, or what? I'd like to see someone beat that.

Dame! said @ 08/13/2004 06:25 AM PST

Old enough to not realize that you already posted the same comment. :-)

Brooks said @ 08/13/2004 08:44 AM PST

Yeah, but when I posted the first one, it took over a day to post, so I thought I'd done something wrong. And then I thought I'd done something wrong. And then... damn, I hate those broken record moments.

Dame! said @ 08/14/2004 08:58 AM PST

Hey man, happy week-belated birthday. I've been out of the blogging world for so long, I miss all the good stuff. Anyway, to make all of you feel super old, my #1 song from the day I was born was Endless Love by
Diana Ross and Lionel Richie. I bet most of you listened to that song at your proms.
