NOTE: Please do not leave comments here asking me to look up specific dates. Please follow this link to out the answer for yourself.
This website can tell you what song was at Number 1 in the charts the day you were born — assuming you were born after 1945.
I actually recognise mine, “You’re the One that I Want”, John Travolta and Olivia Newton John. But I’ve put in other family birthdays and not recognised many other people’s songs.
Now, I’m torn between sharing interesting coincidences of birth, and the security risk of revealing the birthdates of my nearest and dearest.
So perhaps I’ll confine myself to saying I don’t recognise any of the names of these “eminent musicians” with whom I share a birthday:
1941 – Beverly Lee ( The Shirelles )
1946 – John York ( bassist, guitarist, vocalist, The Byrds )
1963 – James Hetfield ( vocalist, guitarist, Metallica )
1967 – Deborah Anne Dyer ( aka Skin, vocalist, Skunk Anansie )
1971 – Deirdre Roper ( aka Spinderella; vocalist, Salt-n-Pepa )
