Number one on my birthday.

So, according to this web site I stumbled upon, oh, five minutes ago, I've discovered who had the number one song on my birthday in 1974. It was John Denver with "Annie's Song." This would explain the records in my mom's collection of a bespectacled Bro. Denver, smiling at absolutely nothing and standing in a field. It would also explain, on some degree, why I can still sing the chorus to "Grandma's Feather Bed" with frightening accuracy. It doesn't make me mad, so much, but it would have been a whole lot more fun to be pegged with Andy Gibb's "Shadow Dancing" (1978), Jim Croce's "Bad, Bad Leroy Brown" (1973) or even "I Found a Million-Dollar Baby (in a Five-and-Ten-Cent Store)" by Fred Waring's Pennsylvanians. I haven't heard the last one but, considering it was No. 1 in 1931, that'd make me, what, 76 this year? No bueno.

"(You're) Having My Baby" by Paul Anka. is that even really a song? did Paul Anka have kids? this website just brings me questions.

It is a song. I could sing a few bars of it, even. As for whether or not he procreated, THAT is the mystery. Seek it out. Solve it. It is your quest.

That's not such a bad song, I suppose. Mine is Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds, but it's the one by Elton John.

the picture of lionel richie hugging that guy (who is he?) makes me laugh as does your description of denver smiling at nothing.

i am lucky because mine is "american pie" which i will proudly say i love to sing along to.

however, i am jealous of those born a year later than myself because they get stevie wonder's "superstition".

they are the luckiest bday kids.

I have a song by Rod Stewart. Talk about being born under an unlucky star.
