    Insert your DOB to find out!


    So, on 29th July 1963.....

    Elvis was at the top of the singles' chart with (You're the) Devil in Disguise (sounds about right for me....)

    And the Beatles topped the album charts with Please Please Me

    On February 20th, 1973:

    The Number 1 single was:
    The Sweet - "Blockbuster"

    The Number 1 album was:
    Elton John - "Don't Shoot Me I'm Only The Piano Player"

    Jeez! Elton John! Grrrrrrrrrrrrr.

    Edit: the database doesn't seem to be accurate though - put my son's birth date in (30 April 2000) and it came out with 'Oxide & Neutrino' when I knew for a fact it was 'Fragma - Toca's Miracle' - then looking at the details behind the site it showed:

    22 Apr Fragma - Toca's Miracle 2 weeks
    6 May Oxide & Neutrino - Bound 4 Da reload (Casualty) 1 week

    That's enough boccing from me - just a work of caution! ;)
