Number 1 Song on My Birthday

Updated on October 22, 2014

What Was the Number 1 Song on the Day You Were Born

Have you ever been curious about what the number 1 song was on the day you were born? None of us remember, of course, what song was Number one on the charts on the day we were born. But its fun to find out, and not too hard to do. Take a moment and look back in time. What was the top hit the day you were born, or on the day you turned 18, or got married, or whatever another important date might be?

Just for fun, look it up; there are web-sites below that make it very easy to look up the song and even get the lyrics. Share your top important date tunes below in the comments section.

For me:

- Day I was born = Teddy Bear by Elvis Presley (don`t think I have ever actually heard this)

- Day I turned 18 = The Hustle by Van McCoy & the Soul City Symphony; now this I remember

- Day I was married - Call Me by Blondie

- Day I was married, again - Stay by Lisa Loeb & Nine Storie

- Day my first daughter was born - On Bended Knee by Boyz to Men

- Day my second daughter was born - Always Be My Baby by Mariah Carey

Let Me Be Your Teddy Bear

Do The Lyrics From Your Special Date Tunes Speak To You ?

Here are the lyrics from Teddy Bear - the number 1 song on the day I was born. Can't say it speaks to me at all but then I don't remember ever hearing it. Perhaps it had only a short-lived fame It is romantic, although I find the tune a little soppy..

The Lyrics From Teddy Bear

Baby let me be,

Your lovin teddy bear

Put a chain around my neck,

And lead me anywhere

Oh let me be

Your teddy bear.

I don't wanna be a tiger

Cause tigers play too rough

I don't wanna be a lion

Cause lions aint the kind

You love enough.

Just wanna be, your teddy bear

Put a chain around my neck

And lead me anywhere

Oh let me be

Your teddy bear.

Baby let me be, around you every night

Run your fingers through my hair,

And cuddle me real tight

      @joanhall: Joan, I believe it was probably because of an eMail circulating with this information attached. I got it from my niece a while back. I had seen it before but had forgotten about it.

      Great idea. Would make for a good start to a memories book for your kid to include things like this.

      I have a "On the Day I Was Born" lens and just this past week it suddenly had a big run of traffic from people searching for the #1 song from that day (it's "Do Wah Diddy Diddy" by Manfred Mann). I don't know if there has been a meme going around about that or what.

      I definitely know what song was #1 when I got married because we heard it on the radio constantly during our honeymoon -- "The Boy Is Mine", the duet by Brandy and Monica.
