It was my 25th birthday yesterday and I've got something special for you. Few months ago I found the page that shows you what was No.1 in the charts (UK & US) on the day you were born.

A couple of days ago I found another, much better one...
http://www.everyhit.com/dates/
...and I decided to make a list of songs that had been No.1s on every 10th of September since 1981.

I also found the archives of the most famous radio chart in Poland - the "Public Radio 3 Chart"...

    Za to ja rodziłam się niecały rok później i jestem odrobinkę starsza niż lp3, więc nie mam skąd wytrzasnąć mojego polskiego hitu :) Ale kilka dni później królowało Maanam i O! Nie rób tyle hałasu ;) A z zagramanicznych to jakieś tajemnicze (przynajmniej dla mnie) Bucks Fizz i My Camera Never Lies. Charts z US dalej nie działają ;)

    For me (1983-10-10), here in my home country (USA) it was Total Eclipse of the Heart. That damn song haunted me for years before I found that out!
