What was #1 on the day you were born.

Have you ever done this?

My number #1's are:
'You're So Vain' by Carly Simon in the US
'Long Haired Lover From Liverpool' by Little Jimmy Osmond in the UK
'Ben' by Michael Jackson in Australia

See which songs you get

the #1's were crap, but it was five years to the date that Jimi Hendrix arrived in London.
