Has your life been influenced by a pop song?

Some people believe our lives are profoundly influenced by whatever pop song was number one on the day we were born.

Here are some examples of songs that were No.1 on the day they were born using ‘Birthday No.1’ on www.thisdayinmusic.com

I looked up these players date of birth.

Andy Murray had Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now - Starship

James Blake - Escape (The Pina Colada Song) - Rupert Holmes

Tim Henman - Love Me For A Reason - The Osmonds

Elana Baltacha - Give It Up - KC & The Sunshine Band

Alex Bogdanovic - The Reflex - Duran Duran

What is you song?

Re: Has your life been influenced by a pop song?

Probably. Although like Deck, I don't know yet about the one on my birthday:
1956, Elvis Presley started a five-week run at No.1 on the US charts with 'Don't Be Cruel'. [Sept. 15]

Hobo's Lulaby ./.Arlo Guthrie…..

A tramp travels and won't work
A bum neither travels or works”

…hobotraveler (link <--it's a site by hobos, for hobos...it's very slow)…

Re: Has your life been influenced by a pop song?

I have some songs that were influential in my life (namely Bruce Springsteen and a couple by Tom Petty) but I'm pretty sure none were at the top on my birth date. In fact, I don't even care what was on top at the time.

Re: Has your life been influenced by a pop song?

#1 on my bday was.... Tina Turner: 'What's Love Got To Do With It'.




On the British charts was: Issy Bonn - I'm In Love With Two Sweethearts.... which I can't say I'm familiar with

Aussie charts, another classic: Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go - Wham!

Troicki - Djokovic - Del Potro - Kyrgios - Berankis
Cibulkova - Robson - Kirilenko - Azarenka
Retired but always loving Ferrero - Ancic - Kiefer

Re: Has your life been influenced by a pop song?

They don't go back far enough for me - so let's just say RAVE ON by Buddy Holly, which is eternal.

What pop singer of today will have a smash hit London musical on his life 50 years after his death?
