On Your Birth Date in Music

On Your Birth Date in Music

This site asks the question, “What song was No. 1 on the day you were born”? Of course, you can put in any date and get results, so if you want to look up what was No. 1 on the day your first child was born or on your wedding day, etc., you can.

Choose the date from the drop down menu. Then choose which chart you want the No. 1 from. Your options are Australia, the U.S. or the U.K. I chose my birthday the first time around and then tried my family members’ birth dates.

If you were born before 1955, for the U.S. chart, you may have to look up your life’s theme song. To do this, you put in the date of your 18th birthday. I found that out when I put in my mom’s birth date, because the chart didn’t start in the U.S. until 1955. For Australia, it’s 1956 and for the U.K., you get whatever song was at the top of the sheet music sales at that time. They’re all pretty interesting!

The little black button at the top of the page that reads, “Sex ‘N’ Drugs ‘N’ Rock & Roll” takes you to This Day in Music History. You can see who made the headlines in the past on this day. Some of the little blurbs have a More button after them as well. Click it and you will get the news article or a picture of the person in the blurb.

So, what song was No. 1 when you were born? Mine from the three charts were:

Down Under – Men at Work (Australia)
Centerfold – J. Geils Band (U.S.)
The Model/Computer Love – Kraftwerk (U.K.)

Cool, huh?!
