THE #1 SONG ON THIS DATE IN HISTORY (http://joshhosler.biz/NumberOneInHistory/SelectMonth.htm)

Mine is Sad Eyes by Robert John (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mSNSVKFqh5A). I've never heard of him or the song. I think.

I've heard of it. But I don't think it was very memorable.

Mine is "You keep me hangin' on" by The Supremes.

That's a good song. But I think I've only heard the remake made in the '80s.

I find them both very good. Motown Vs Rock and Roll is like apples and oranges, even with the exact same song.

This was the number one song on Haggis's birthday :D

Here in the UK it was The Name of the Game by Abba. I'd been lied to all my life and told it was Mull of Kintyre (yick, yick, yick) but I found out a couple of months ago I was way cooler than I thought. ;)

In America it was You Light Up My Life by Debby Boone. Never heard of it, or her. I'll have to YouTube it when I get home from work.

ETA: This is the British list if anyone's remotely interested. :) http://www.everyhit.com/number.html

That song sucks, but The Bangles will always have a special place in my heart because they wore giant earrings and had big hair.

I think you might have. I think Frankie Vallie and the Four Seasons remade it. Better than having Pat Boone do your song. :)

You're shitting me. This is only one of the most beautiful country ballads of all frigging time. Yeah, it has an old sound, but wow. It's so sad! It's one of the few songs I've heard that actually tells a story in its own right.

As for my birthday, Jack & Diane by John Mellencamp was the number one hit.
