Could anyone help me to find out the US, UK and possibly the Oz. number one singles on the 1st April 1989? I'm making someone a CD compilation and thought it'd be a nice gesture to put these meaningful tracks on.

I've checked my Guiness UK No1s book, but its in order of artists not dates, cheers.

Yeah I found a site back in the day that tells you the number ones in the US and UK for any date...

Just to show how old I am, ABBA were number one the day I was born! Super Trouper! (16th December 1980). John Lennon made number 1 the next week.

Other great number ones from 1980 include...

"Another Brick In The Wall" by Pink Floyd (UK)

"Video Killed The Radio Star" by The Buggles (AUS)

"Atomic" by Blondie (UK)

"Call Me" by Blondie (US & UK)

"Funky Town" by Lipps Inc. (US)

"Turning Japanese" by The Vapors (AUS)

"Ashes To Ashes" by David Bowie (UK)

"Don't Stand So Close To Me" by The Police (UK)

"Shaddup You Face" by Joe Dolce (AUS)

Truly a fantastic year for music!

Pfft. Worst song ever.

It kept Vienna off number one. Some people just have no taste..... ;)

And you think "Super Trouper" is bad CSAMH - mine was a couple of weeks earlier - "Woman In Love" by Barbra Streisand. :crying:

I recall that thread about number 1 on the day you were born at EWB3. Keith was jelaous caus mine was Star Trekkin :D

Bah, all those years and probably my best birthday number 1(s) was 2003, Evanescence Bring me to life. That said 97 was good (MMMMMMM BOP!).

Star Treekin' across the universe...Only going' forward cos we can't find reverse...

Hahahahaha I loved that song when it came out.

How young ARE you Ellis?

I'm sure I was like 10 or something...

Anyways is it just me or does anyone else think that the re-releases of Elvis songs into the English charts is choking the life even more out of a dying institution (The English charts that is).

It winds me up and it's cynical cashing in from the Presley Estate.

Why not provide a little space for the artists who are actually ALIIIIIVE!

Chain Reaction

Sara

I don't even know Sara. I've never even heard of the band (Starship).

My birthday #1s sucked :(

Interestingly, the Boyzone cover of WTGGT,TTTG was also #1 on my birthday :P

There's never been a decent #1 on my birthday :( Unless you count Do The Bartman :shifty:

It was the same as the TV Show guys (the same people that wrote Red Dwarf :P)

It's the time of year, now that spring is in the air

When those two wet gits, with their girly curly hair

Make another song, for marronic holidays

that nausiate-ate-ates in a million different ways

From the shores of Spain, to the coast of southern France

No matter where you hide, you just can't escape this dance

Hold a chicken in the air, stick a deck-chair up your nose

Buy a Jumbo-Jet, and then bury all your clothes

Paint your left knee green, then extract your wisdom teeth

Form a string quartet, and pretend your name is Keith.

Skin yourself alive, learn to speak araphahoe

Climb inside a dog, and behead an Eskimo

Eat a Renault 4, wear salami in your ears

Cassarole your gran, dis-embowel yourself with spears

The disco is migrating, the sound is loud and grating

It's truly nausiating - let's do the dance again..

Hold a chicken in the air, stick a deck-chair up your nose

Buy a Jumbo-Jet, and then bury all your clothes

Yes you'll hear this song, in the holiday discos

And there's no escape, in the clubs or in the bars

You would hear this song, if you holidayed in Mars

Skin yourself alive, learn to speak araphahoe

Climb inside a dog, and behead an Eskimo

Now you've heard it once, your brain will spring a leak

And though you hate this song you'll be humming it for weeks

Hold a chicken in the air, stick a deck-chair up your nose

Buy a Jumbo-Jet, and then bury all your clothes

la la la la la la la....
