Do you know what the No.1 song in Australia was the day you were born? I have managed to calculate all of the No.1 singles in Australia from January 1940 thru to today, so that a consistent timeline has been constructed. The current No.1 of "Beautiful Girls" is the 925th, although Delta's recent chart-topper was the 926th. Most of this only came about in recent years thanks to David Kent releasing his chart book for the 1940-1969 period.
So if you'd like to know what the No.1 was the day you were born, just put your entire birthday (date/month/year) down and I'll let you know.

Of course, the charts prior to the Kent Report beginning in 1974 were compiled long after the fact, so are they really proper charts?
29/10/1990, lol thanks
David Kent used the same formula's that he has used ever since her fine tuned the charts in the late 70's. Charts were compiled from all radio stations information from the late 50 thru until the end of the 1960's, plus were weighted for population via census information for each state, so that way percentage of the states population were relevant to what songs were charting in those states. So NSW would have the highest points, followed by Victoria, Queensland, SA, WA then Tasmania.
I have done some similar calculations for 1964 and 1965, and they came out about the same, so it seems to be fairly correct for what David has done.

Ben - You had a one week wonder (it only stayed atop the charts for a single week), it was "Bust a Move" by Young MC.
Oh I don't doubt the accuracy of his work, it's just that you can't really say "such and such a song" was No. 1 in 1965 when, back in 1965, it was not.
Liam, I do have charts going back to 1950 for Sydney, 1956 for Melbourne, and most other states from there onwards. If you don't like the national No.1, I can always break it down state-by-state if you want. Sometimes people like to know what there birthday song was in their home-town.
So what's your home city/state and birthdate, and I'll possibly be able to give you alternatives.
Gavin Ryan.

06/06/07 can we please have the top 5 thanks heap
Belinda and Mark
Top 5 were
1 - Umbrella - Rihanna (debut)
2 - Girlfriend - Avril Lavigne
3 - Candyman - Christina Aguilera
4 - Glamorous - Fergie
5 - Never Again - Kelly Clarkson (debut)
I hope that the child born on this date was a female, as this is one of the few times that you'll ever find the Top 5 full of females.

Regards, Gavin Ryan.
Hi! My B'day is 23/12/1992
I'll be impressed if you can tell me!'Cheers,
W!LL; You're No.1 song was "I Will Always Love You" by Whitney Houston, it reached the top on December 20th, and stayed their for 10 weeks, so their's no escaping it.

Gavin Ryan.
AHH!! Thats scary. Thanks for that!
i found out my birthday song... the day before i was born the song that was no.1 around the world was " Boombastic" by Shaggy
Hey Bulion, my birthday song is 05/Oct/1983
What's my birthday song? Hope it's an interesting one
Roydges, yours is "Australiana" by Austen Tayshus, a true Aussie classic.

Regards, Bulion.
I just discovered what the #1 song was on my birthday - it was "Under the Bridge" by the Red Hot Chili Peppers. That's good, cos I like that song And the #1 album was "Adrenalize" by Def Leppard... hm... don't know about that one.

No.1 when I was born was ABBA "Dancing Queen".

How old does that make me feel??!?!

Hey bulion, thanks heaps for that!
I think i'm one of those rare breeds where an Australian No.1 in which one is born under is by an Aussie comedy act.
I know Chris Franklin's 'Bloke' is also an Australian No.1.
I wonder if there are any others?
The only other comedy act to hit No. 1 on the Australian singles charts was THE 12th MAN in 1984 with "It's Just Not Cricket" and in 1992 with "Marvellous!"

Other notable Aussie 'comedy' acts:

* KYLIE MOLE "So Excellent" / "I Go, I Go" (#8: 1988)
* CON THE FRUITERER "A Cuppla Days" (#48: 1988)
* NORMAN GUNSTON & EFFIE "Amigos Para Siempre" (#26: 1992)
* ANDREW DENTON & THE CAST OF LIVE & SWEATY "I Don't Care As Long As We Beat New Zealand" (#38: 1992)
* PAULINE PANTSDOWN "I Don't Like It" (#10: 1998)
* JOHN SAFRAN (sort of) "Not The Suncreen Song" (#20: 1998)
* LITTLE JOHNNY "I'm Sorry!" (1999)
* ADAM HILLS "Working Class Anthem" (2003)
** plus anything by TISM !!!!
Hard to believe that since the charts began, that we now have 930 #1 songs here in Oz (The latest being Timbaland and OneRepublic's 'Apologise'). It just shows how us Aussie's love our diverse range of music that spans a few decades so far!

I'd be very curious to know as to which lucky song will be the 1000th #1 song in Australia! I do hope it's not an annoying novelty song!

I guess we should see 70 #1 songs later (Should be around late 2009 / early 2010 at this rate). It should be interesting.
On the subject of how long before No.1000. Here is the amount of
No.1's per year since the start of the decade.
2000 - 20 No.1's
2001 - 16
2002 - 18
2003 - 18
2004 - 26
2005 - 22
2006 - 13
2007 - 14
So based on the slowing down of the charts and longer No.1 singles, and at an average of 15 to 16 No.1's per year, we should 1000 around 4 1/2 years. So if the charts still exist in 2012, we can cross our 1000th line.
The UK managed theirs in the early part of this decade, and their charts have only been running since 1952
The current 930 are based on charts since 1940, so we are much slower at the turn-over of chart-toppers here in Oz.

Here's one for you bullion.

In Australia at a birthday celebration I heard people sing not just H.B. but also a ditty that went something like "Twenty-one again, twenty-one again" and then something about "...the key to the house...". They said it can be sung to anyone of any age.
Do you have the lyrics, at least the first verse or so?
MQ; I don't know the song you're trying to explain, but others might. You could also go to a lyrics website (of which there are plenty) and type in your lines that you know there, and see what turns up.

It's not often we get a USA resident on this site, so thanks for taking the time to seek us out.

Regards, Bulion.
"Twenty-One today, Twenty-One today, he/she's got the key to the door never been Twenty-One before"
Oh that one, thanks BB
can somebody please tell me what was number one June 8 1982?
"Mickey" by Toni Basil.

There is also have a thread of all of the No.1 singles from 1940 to 1988 in the same Forum heading as this one. So you can see what other No.1's happened on your birthday in the following years.
Every Saturday I am now appearing on 3AW in Melbourne with Dennis Walter, between 5 and 6pm. We do a segment where people can ring up and find out there birthday song, and we'll play it, as I've managed to get every No.1 single from January 1940 through to today.

I am also letting people know about this website, so if they don't get their birthday song answered, they can come here.
So does this mean you will no longer be here for the A.R.I.A countdown on Sundays?
Could you please tell me what was top of the Australian charts on the 15thMay, 1951?
Judy, you had the original version of "Bonaparte's Retreat" by Pee Wee King. The better known version was probably the Glen Campbell one from 1974.
BBarnes, I am a free agent and can (and do) work for many different radio stations. So no it won't affect my Sunday Nova / ARIA Countdown work.
Could you please tell me the top of the Australian charts on 8th July 1954 & 3rd Septemer 1954.

ps I enjoy your segment on 3AW with Denis
Thanks Andrew, here are your two:

08-July-54 - Young at Heart - Frank Sinatra

03-Sept-54 - The Happy Wanderer - Frank Weir

You might remember "The Happy Wanderer" song as it's used in a yogurt commercial, the one with a mountain-goat in it, at the end they throw a stick over the ledge, and it jumps after it. Well that's the song they use for that commercial.
Dear Gavin, I'm interested to learn of the #1 single on 03/06/1944. Enjoy listening to your segment on 3AW. - Jo
Jo, 3-Jun-44 was Sunday, Monday or Always by Frank Sinatra

13-Oct-46 - Symphony - Bing Crosby
can someone tell who sings the song with lyrecs,not able to place a headstone.from the fifty's or sixties'a male american singer
Sam, Could it be "Don't Put No Headstone On My Grave" by Jerry Lee Lewis? Here's the link: http://www.sing365.com/music/lyric.nsf/Don-t-Put-No-Headstone-On-My-Grave-lyrics-Jerry-Lee-Lewis/94BDE70027E4287A482570B700115386
thanks bulion.this is real hard one. it's not jerry lee lewis,i have the song on old cassete,the singer talks troughtout the song start to finish,here some lyrics from the song[put the blossom close to baby kneel with me my love and pray we must leave the baby we burried say goodbye to her today it is sad to leave our baby and to think that we're not able at her head to place a stone we have been too poor to do it but my darling never mind god is in the gracious heaven he will bless this spot with beauty he will make the grasses grow many winds will love our baby many songs will come and go here the blue eyed spring will linger
Sam, Henry Kendall wrote a poem in the 1800s called Araluen.

The poem has the same lyrics as your song – maybe that will help find the name of the song:


Take this rose, and very gently place it on the tender, deep
Mosses where our little darling, Araluen, lies asleep.
Put the blossom close to baby -- kneel with me, my love, and pray;
We must leave the bird we've buried -- say good-bye to her to-day;
In the shadow of our trouble we must go to other lands,
And the flowers we have fostered will be left to other hands.
Other eyes will watch them growing -- other feet will softly tread
Where two hearts are nearly breaking, where so many tears are shed.
Bitter is the world we live in: life and love are mixed with pain;
We will never see these daisies -- never water them again.
. . . . .
Here the blue-eyed Spring will linger, here the shining month will stay,
Like a friend, by Araluen, when we two are far away;
But, beyond the wild, wide waters, we will tread another shore --
We will never watch this blossom, never see it any more.

Girl, whose hand at God's high altar in the dear, dead year I pressed,
Lean your stricken head upon me -- this is still your lover's breast!
She who sleeps was first and sweetest -- none we have to take her place!
Empty is the little cradle -- absent is the little face.
Other children may be given; but this rose beyond recall,
But this garland of your girlhood, will be dearest of them all.
None will ever, Araluen, nestle where you used to be,
In my heart of hearts, you darling, when the world was new to me;
We were young when you were with us, life and love were happy things
To your father and your mother ere the angels gave you wings.

You that sit and sob beside me -- you, upon whose golden head
Many rains of many sorrows have from day to day been shed;
Who, because your love was noble, faced with me the lot austere
Ever pressing with its hardship on the man of letters here --
Let me feel that you are near me, lay your hand within mine own;
You are all I have to live for, now that we are left alone.
Three there were, but one has vanished. Sins of mine have made you weep;
But forgive your baby's father now that baby is asleep.
Let us go, for night is falling, leave the darling with her flowers;
Other hands will come and tend them -- other friends in other hours.

Henry Kendall

so far had no luck with [araluen track]been thru the normal channels, sounds like the title is araluen it gets mentioned a few times on cassete we will keep trying ,thank you so much bulion for your great help.
Sam, here's a bit more info...

* Araluen is the song.

* Ned Kelly & His Band released a version in 1958. Perhaps that is the one.

* Just did a quick google.. was released on "Australian Balladeers Remembered Vol 3".

* And here is the Screensound entry


It was also recorded by another 2 Australian Artists....


hope that gives you somewhere to go...
