Have you seen

It's a good fun site with loads of musi info and tell's you what was number 1 on the day you were born.

It also show's you which pop stars you share your birthday with.

My number 1's are 'You're So Vain' Carly Simon in the US

and UK is 'Long Haired Lover From Liverpool' Little Jimmy Osmond!

I share my birthday with Elvis, David Bowie, Robert Krieger from The Doors and R Kelly! 8)

    US #1: "I Can Help" by Billy Swan

    I didn't recognize it until I checked it out on iTunes. Kind of a cool tune that it seems like Lennon could have written in a good mood.

    My most notable shared birthday is Denny Doherty-sort of the "other guy" of the Mammas and Pappas.
