(On My Own) Good song; awesome video. There's a great story behind its making.

You're not missing anything. Although it is a fine example of "bubble gum" music. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bubblegum_pop

I missed the link at the top of the page and searched it out myself.

I can now see what was number 1 in the UK and Australia.

UK - Bad Moon Rising - Creedence Clearwater Revival
Australia - The Girl That I Love - Russell Morris
America - Sugar Sugar - The Archies

I think i like Bad Moon Rising the best....Wasn't that used on An American Werewolf in London....I think it was as i have the song in my head and it's just before the transformation in the house.

Inspired by a friend's post on Facebook, post a link to the #1 hit song from the week you were born.



The next week it was replaced with Wham! - Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go.

Wow! Old one. I've been doing that on my radio show since the early 90's. I think mine was on a wax cylinder.

Ummm.... Phil Collins? Awww!

Whew! Narrowly missed this being Sussudio.

ok if i am reading this right this is my week of 1975 (WTF). So far I think lwright wins because I LOVE both of those songs, cheesy or not.

post #53 of 67
and might I add...

I'm usually a HUGE hater of pop music but this last year has changed me. Adele, Lady Gaga and Katy Perry turned me to the dark side.

Katy Perry in 2011 tied Michael Jackson's record for #1 hits on a record and came ever so slightly to breaking it - which was what I thought was the best of the 6 (the one that got away).

Ah well. 5 #1 songs on one album. Not too shabby.

No idea how to make it come up as a direct video.

1. Remove up to the = sign on the front of the string

zKVq-P3z5Vg&ob=av2e

2. Remove the = and any other letters/numbers at the end of the string

zKVq-P3z5Vg&ob

3. Then highlight the above and press the YouTube Icon (advanced mode)

Presto . . .

Super successful group from the 1960's - I love their music. At the time that song was #1, the group was called The Four Seasons. It became Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons in 1970. They had two more number 1 hits after Big Girls; 1963's "Walk Like a Man" and 1964's "Rag Doll". They had a string of hits afterwards but none hit number one until they made the comeback song in 1975 that hit #1:



It was to be their last released song as a group.

That's actually one of the few Phil Collins solo songs I like. "I Don't Care Anymore" is my favorite.

To the OP - this same, exact thread was done already, a couple of years back. Title was the same, verabatim, if I remember. Could've just dug up that one.

Thanks.

Mine was "Sixteen Tons", by Tennessee Ernie Ford.
