JUST FOR FUN: The Top Song for the Year You Were Born.

January 6, 2012 · 5 comments

My friend on facebook just prompted me to find out the song that was number one for the year I was born (1970 – yep I’m  THAT old).  So being the loyal facebookian I am I did what I was told.  (Not at all because once I saw hers I just had to know mine!)  And this is what I found.  To be totally honest I’ve never really listen to it meaningfully before and was surprised how beautiful it is,  I actually brought tears to my eyes (not to say that takes much).  Listen and enjoy.


Do you know the number one song from the year you were born?  If you don’t today might be a good day to find out and share.  Tell me in the comments and I’ll spend the afternoon checking them all out on you-tube.

I found the Number 1 songs for September 1967(Im alittle older) in Australia (ok Im being specific) “Up up and away” The 5th Dimension (Mum & Dad had/still have this album, remember it well) and ‘Dont sleep in the subway ” by Petula Clark…dont think we had the album but remember the song,that was fun :0

That song just makes me think of Young Talent Time. Good memories.

I think it depends on your reference but according to wikipedia the top hit song released in 1971 (the year I was born) is John Lennon’s Imagine. I can imagine that.

The one for the week I was born was The Carpenters and Just Like You. How cute – but always makes me think of Honey I Shrunk the Kids!!
