What was the #1 song the day you were born? Google the date and #1 song and then post your #1 song on your LJ - preferably with a Youtube vid if you can find one!

"Mrs Brown You've got a Lovely Daughter" by Herman's Hermits  was the number one song 14 May 1965.

I have thought on this one... I had once been compared to the Vorpal Rabbit in that infamous movie. Aw, such a cute little thing...WAIT - nasty, gnashing teeth... I may seem quiet to those who do not know me, but I can be rather fierce.

Snerked from many:

You know how sometimes people on your friend's list post about stuff going on in their life, and all of a sudden you think "Wait a minute? Since when were they working THERE? Since when were they dating HIM/HER? Since when?" And then you wonder how you could have missed all that seemingly pretty standard information, but somehow you feel too ashamed to ask for clarification because it seems like info you should already know? It happens to all of us sometimes.
