That's mine for birthday (5/30/80) in the US. The UK song was "Suicide is Painless (Theme from M*A*S*H*)". That's some irony; Mom just commented that it wasn't the most painless of days for her. Whoops.

Birthday (6/29/62):

U.S. - I Canít Stop Loving You - Ray Charles

U.K. - Come Outside - Mike Sarne and Wendy Richard

Had I been born a week later the U.S. song would've been "The Stripper" by David Rose.

Just thought I'd mention that.

18th Birthday:


U.S. - Coming Up (Live At Glasgow) - Paul McCartney & Wings

U.K. - Crying - Don McLean

Interesting. A man born in the U.S. topping the U.K. charts the same day a man born in the U.K. was topping the U.S. charts. I wonder how often that's happened?

U.S. I Honestly Love You: Olivia Newton John.
U.K. Annie's Song: John Denver

I couldn't at least get Rocky Mountain High or Country Roads for a John Denver Song? I'd even accept a John Denver/Kermit The Frog Duet. And, spf, I'll take You Light Up My Life over I Honestly Love You. And, You Light Up My Life was #1 for my 3rd birthday.

10/10/92

U.S. End of the Road: Boyz II Men(I'd rather have Suicide is painless, but not bad)
U.K. Ebeneezer Goode: The Shaman (no f'ing clue)

Best Song on any of my birthdays: Another One Bites the Dust 1980. Funny thing, two different Janet Jackson and Boyz II Men #1's hit on my birthday, with 3 Mariah Carey's doing the honors as well.

A couple people mentioned not knowing "Everything I Own" by Ken Boothe. It's a really good record. It's a reggae version of an American soft-pop hit by Bread. Boothe gave it that Jamaican beat and it's a beautiful love song. ("I would give anything I own, give up my life, my heart, my home, I would give everything I own, just to have you back again, just to touch you once again.")

Boy George later did an excellent version based on Boothe's version.

The song "Sunshine Superman" by Donovan hit number one (US) the day I was born. He was at Beatlefest last year and I thought about mentioning that fact to him, but I figured he didn't need to feel old!

There was a nice birthday a few years ago when I was still working full-time in radio. I was listening to my station on my way in from work and a listener called up and requested "Birthday" by The Beatles for me. Then I switched to another station where a friend of mine was working, and he played a today-in-music feature that mentioned "Sunshine Superman" hitting number one, and he came on and mentioned that he had a friend who had told him that this was the number one song the day he was born, and wished me a happy birthday. Very nice ego boost to have TWO radio stations talking about my birthday!

Your post gave me some idea's. Since I already posted my birthday and 18th here, I though I'd go your route in some important dates in my development (or lack thereof )

Date: Sept. 29th

5th Birthday (1972)...the just starting school phase
US: "Baby Donít Get Hooked On Me" - Mac Davis
UK: "How Can I Be Sure" - David Cassidy

THANK GOD that I don't remember much back to then.

13th Birthday (1980)...the entering my teenage years phase
US: "Another One Bites The Dust" - Queen
UK: "Don't Stand So Close To Me" - The Police

Pretty good choices, although far from each bands best work.

16th Birthday (1983)...the first time puking from drinking too much beer phase

US: "Total Eclipse Of The Heart" - Bonnie Tyler
UK: "Karma Chameleon" - Culture Club

No wonder I started drinking a lot.

21st Birthday (1988)...the legal drinking age phase

US: "Dont Worry Be Happy" - Bobby McFerrin
UK: "He Ain't Heavy He's My Brother" - The Hollies

All I can say is; YIKES!!!

30th Birthday (1997)...the first birthday being a father phase

US: "4 Seasons Of Loneliness" - Boyz II Men
UK: "Candle In The Wind '97 / Something About The Way You Look Tonight" - Elton John

Eh. Good thing I was busy doing dad things instead of listening to top 40 radio then. I do like the original "Candle in the Wind" though.

Easy, son. You're talking about the official party song of ACW-NWA Wisconsin. Usually with booze in hand. :-)

Count that as a blessing with the Whigfield song; it's one of the most annoying songs of all time. It still gets played at parties at the point when everyone's getting just about drunk enough to think it's a good idea to get up and do a synchronised dance routine.

There's a song you really do wanna hear though. Ebeneezer Goode is a "A gentleman of leisure...there for your pleasure"; features the immortal chorus "Eezer Goode, Eezer Goode, He's Ebeneezer Goode", as in "E's are good, E's are good".
