Have you ever done this?

Some people believe our lives are profoundly influenced by whatever pop song was #1 on the day we were born.

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

Don't Cry For Me Argentina - Julie Covington in the UK

Torn Between Two Lovers - Mary MacGregor in the US

The Way You Do It - Pussyfoot in Oz

Living next door to Alice - Smokie in Holland

So, would this mean I f*cked two lovers with my foot in Argentina, one of which was Alice?

I Believe - Frankie Lane - UK
I'll Walk Behind You - Eddie Fisher - US

Sorry - the information we have for the Australian charts starts on January 7th 1956.

Guess OZ didn't have any music in 1953 - bummer.

That's some talented foot you have, Michael...

That's some talented foot you have, Michael...

See My Baby Jive - Wizzard (UK)

You Are The Sunshine Of My Life - Stevie Wonder (US)

Top Of The World - The Carpenters (Australia)

Dang--now I've got that old Minute Maid song stuck in my head...

And Michael, you should take up tap dancing! You could repopulate developed countries...

When I need you - Leo Sayer in the UK
Love Theme From 'A Star Is Born' (Evergreen) - Barbra Streisand in the US
The way you do it - Pussyfoot in Australia

Utrecht...seems as if we were born around a similar time, my songs are just after yours and the Oz one is the same!

'You spin me round (like a record) - Dead or Alive (UK)
'Can't fight this feeling' - Reo Speedwagon (US)
'I want to know what love is' - Foreigner (Aus)

I guess this would make me some emotional love-obsessed dork that spins around like a record

UK - Theme from M*A*S*H
US - Funky Town - Lips Inc.
AUS - I Got You - Split Enz

A fairly nondescript bunch.
