The chart doesn't go back far enough for my birthdate...
 
 Actually, I could care less who topped the UK charts the date I was born. What about the US charts?

I wasn't even going to bother, 'cuz chances are I wouldn't know the song anyhow (who the hell are the Tremeloes), but I GOT THE MONKEES!!!  AND Ian Astbury!  Oh yeah, and David Byrne.  I'm feeling good.
 
 The Number 1 single was:
 The Tremeloes - "Silence Is Golden"
 
 The Number 1 album was:
 Monkees - "More Of The Monkees"
 
 Born on 14th May:
 1936 - Bobby Darin

 There's another site that does both UK and US #1s, but I don't remember where I saw it.
 
 PS, did anyone see a half hour of Barry Manilow on Good Morning America today?   ;)

I'm really really really old....I can remember watching everyone's number ones on Top of the pops!!
 
 Tremeloes, Silence is golden was my favourite song when I was knee high to a grasshopper.
