Default Chart #1 on The Day You Were Born....

Since there have been quite a few posts that have veered off on musical tangents, thought Id come up with this idea.....

For those of us who were born after the music charts were created................

You can either use your home nation chart (Conf, MH etc) or look up the UK one.....


Mine was Rolf Harris - Two Little Boys...........

7th December 1980 - Abba - Super Trouper - No1 for 3 weeks. Strangely enough I've always hated Abba with a vengeance...

BTW John Lennon was shot the following evening...
