Birthday Tunes

The UK number 1 single on her birthday was:
Three Degrees - When Will I See You Again? (liked this one)

The UK number 1 single on her birthday was:
Rod Stewart - Do Ya Think I'm Sexy? (In a word Rod – No. Not then and not now.)

The UK number 1 single on her birthday was:
Goombay Dance Band - Seven Tears. (I don’t remember this one as I was too busy reclaiming the night and being a mad feminist to pay attention to pop music)

The UK number 1 single on his birthday was: Elvis Presley - A Fool Such As I / I Need Your Love Tonight (indeed he is and indeed I do)

The UK number 1 single on my birthday was: Mantovani - Song from 'The Moulin Rouge'. (which sounds awfully olde worlde)

I found the link at Born To Boogie

I agree. Rough & macho jus' like you!

Bloody hell. Bucks Fizz - Making Your Mind Up. How embarassing.

The Four Seasons, "December '63 (Oh What A Night)." Blecch. Since I'm from the US, I'll go with Rhythm Heritage, "Theme from 'S.W.A.T.'," which I actually like.

Nelly said...

At least Buck's Fizz are relatively modern. Mantavoni is from the days when crinolines & pantaloons were worn.

I'll bet your mum thought the song was appropriate enough though Mr DanTobin.

What is wrong with pantaloons? Crushed velvet purple ones at that?

You can't fool me, you know.

Nelly said...

At the time of your entry into this vale of tears crushed velvet pantaloons were indeed worn and these were mega-flared and trailed in puddles. Pantaloon wearers boogied to the tunes of a player known as Marc Wondrous Kerr. Whereas when I was born certain effete members of society might have worn velvet, purple and crushed. Bit these were worn fastened beneath the knee with silken hose and buckled shoes. Ladies wore crinolines and (if they could afford them) 'interesting' silken drawers. Minuets were danced to the delectable strains of Mantavoni.

Yeah, well, the list doesn't even go back far enough for me!

You know you're old when that happens!

ed said...

Nelly: your definition of modern and mine evidently differ somewhat.

/ comming from the guy who the office thought was in his 30s. Bah humbug with the people thinking I'm considerably older than I am.

Nelly said...

Yes you're right. My definition of modern is different than yours. It's a generational thing. Anything that has happened in the past 25 years is quite recent for me.

As for you getting accused of being older than you are -it must be because you seem so sensible.
