Clicky on this linky and you can find out what the Billboard #1 song was on the day that you were born.
Mine turns out to be "You Keep Me Hangin' On" by The Supremes.
"Set me free, why don't cha babe
Get out my life, why don't cha babe
'Cause you don't really love me
You just keep me hangin' on
You don't really need me
But you keep me hangin' on"
What was playing on the radio the day you were born?
Note: Remember to play the Bug-Eyed Trivia Challenge every day. New Twist: From now on every Wednesday will be a Custom Trivia Quiz. Today is Stephen King trivia, but I am going to change it every week. So leave me a comment on the quiz page if you have any suggestions.
Well, looky looky who made it first. . . .
Hotel California baby. Fo Sho.
Here's mine: 1953 ... "Till I Waltz Again with You" by Teresa Brewer.
No wonder the folks of my generation acted like we did in the 70s.
Wow, that was a tough quiz. I know Stephen King better than most and a few of those really caught me. Damn.
Sonny & Cher: I Got You Babe.
That is just kinda sad.
Jimmy Crack Corn (And I Don't Care)
Who the hell is Stan freberg and what did he sound like on my birfday?
Run Around Sue - Dion
I think thats cool being that my sister's name is Sue!!!
Well ok but she was born 2 years after me!!
Have a good one!
War by Edwin Starr.
"To Sir, With Love", which I've never heard.
Jeez Heff, like that's a surprise, LOL. Mine was "Judy In Disguise (With Glasses). January 20, 1968.
The Trailer Of Love
It appears to be "Young Love" by Tab Hunter. I have never heard of it.
Poopie - Nice!
MikeB - Ha. Never heard of it.
Avitable - I did better than I thought I would do since I haven't read the Gunslinger series and I stopped reading King around Gerald's Game.
Evyl - Ha! I love it!
Zibbs - I'm guessing the second part was the most important there.
RW - I know he did some voice work for cartoons. That's all I got.
Michelle - That is cool.
Paticus - What is it good for?
Heff - good song and good movie. It was sung by Lulu who also acted in the film.
Wil - I like that one.
Bruce - Nope...never heard of it. But Tab Hunter was also an actor, right? Maybe it was from a film.
"Fingertips (Part II)" by Little Stevie Wonder
Amazing to have your first hit at the age of 13.
Looking more info on Stevie, he had a lot happen to him on August 6th... more hits, a car accident.
Holy shit I'm old..... so I ain't telling my song.
Your trivia was difficult today
Have a Super Thanksgiving
Marty - That's a really good one!
Jenn - Wednesdays are gonna be real specific from now on. Pick a topic you would like to see and suggest it in the squawk box on the trivia page.
"Another Brick in the Wall"
Poor Little Fool by Ricky Nelson. Good stuff!
C.W. McCall - Convoy. Are you kidding me? Clearly, I made this country a lot cooler AFTER I was born.
Ookami - That's a good one. Im jealous. Of your age too! ;)
Aunt Robin - We were just talking about Ricky Nelson...weird.
Faiqa - Breaker, breaker Rubber Duck. You got a bear in the air and a cab-over Pete with a reefer on. Huh?
"I'll Be There" by the Jackson 5.
Stan Freberg was something of a radio genius during the late-40s through the 70s...He did a number of novelty songs, but primarily, he was one of the pioneers of the kind of subversive radio comedy later fully developed by the Firesign Theater.
Another sphere of influence was in radio advertising. Do you recall a commercial where a voice-over narration describes a giant bowl with a mountain of ice cream with rivers of chocolate syrup ending with a jet plane flying by and dropping a huge cherry on top of it all? That was Stan Freberg.
"Ain't no mountain high enough" by Diana Ross
Happy Thanksgiving BEF!
May you and your Family have a Super Supper!!
Beige - I don't remember that commercial, but nice imagery.
J.Hi - I had Diana Ross too, but a little earlier.
Jenn - Best to you and yours as well.
