You Light Up My Life

Posted on March 20, 2009 by under Memes, Videos.    

“You Light Up My Life” by Debby Boone was the number one song on the Billboard charts the day that I was born. This song also won the 1977 Grammy for Song of the Year and was the biggest hit of that year. It was #1 for 10 weeks in the US charts. Debby Boone won the Grammy for Best New Artist that same year. The song also won the Oscar for Best Song in the 1978 Academy Awards.

The number one song the day Brian was born was some obscure song called “Billy, Don’t Be a Hero” by Bo Donaldson & The Heywoods. I have never even heard of that song. I think Brian got gypped in the song department. What was the number one song on the day that you were born? Find out here and then post the title in the comments.

    Jo’s Wanted -Perry Como “I don’t have to know these songs after all they were number 1 when I was born, now I will go back to see the number one song when I started dating that would make more sense LOL. After all dating that time was going to the Plaza for a public dance.

    Wanted by Perry Como must have been a really popular song that year. It was also #1 on the day that Brian’s dad was born. Your birthdays are several months apart!
