What song was #1 on the day you were born.

Have you ever done this?

My number #1's are:

'Long Haired Lover From Liverpool' by Little Jimmy Osmond in the UK
'Ben' by Michael Jackson in Australia

The day of my birth number one was Smoke Gets In your Eyes by The Platters!
I know because Jimmy Savilles Double Top Ten Show told me so! Anyone else in GB find out this way, or or to put it the other way round, was addicted to it as the only radio show to listen to on a Sunday lunch time.
