A little break from technical talk.

What was the #1 record when you were born? (click on "Birthday No. 1")

For myself:

Nancy Sinatra - These Boots Are Made For Walkin' (U.K.)

Sgt. Barry Sadler -- Ballad of The Green Berets (U.S.A.)

It doesn't go back far enough.

Looking at the billboard charts I come up with
FIVE MINUTES MORE Frank Sinatra (#1, Sept 1946)

I have the charts back to 1946 in text and 49 in XLS

You share the same birthdate (but not year) as a good frind of mine, he's a Building inspector here...he laments the events which affect that date...

Interesting that "Eye Of The Tiger" was #1 in the UK....
