Don't remember the cottage you describe
I should hope not. I can't imagine that it's still there. It was more like semi-permanent camping, not really a house at all. Cement slab, 4 posts along each side, 2 screen doors on opposite sides a counter sink and table and room for cots. A swift wind should have seen that thing in the creek.

heh, I wanted to work in an observatory because I thought it would be like the planetarium. All beautiful, in color, with great music and black lights. It is, isn't it?

Ok, yes I knew it was fake. But I wanted to do something to instill that awe in others.
Sounds a bit like a strip bar the way you put it. (Not like I would know except from the pictures of course.)

My wishful thinking was "Top of the world - carpenters" ... Ah, I was born 2 months before the release of the album. Anyway, they were the no. 1 when I was 4 month old, may be the day I started on my solids.

I listen to this song almost every other day.

Giving the title is almost like giving your exact birthday date, especially if you were born when something obscure was at the top

Never heard about Telstar & The Tornadoes

That makes me 10 months older then... OK, no names disclosed

That's the way you do it:

What? :) I was born way later and *I* know that song.

The Tornadoes I understand, they were a one-hit wonder with that song. But the song itself is pretty well-known; there are a lot of cover versions of it.

Try checking out "The Spotnicks". There's a whole genre of 1960's satellite-related instrumental rock that you probably don't know about

Ah OK, now that I have heard sample from wikipedia I know it, I was just not aware of the title.

Could be. Living on this side of the iron courtain had its drawbacks.

You've got me beat by one year... darn! When I saw the list I liked that one so much better! (Nice to know I'm not the only one from the 70's here....)
I get "The Hussle" (Van McCoy & the Soul City Symphony) on this guy's list:

but "Listen to what the Man Said" (McCartney & the Wings) on others:

... neither is really inspiring.

But at least my Hot Soul Single Number One is the original "Fight the Power."

"Straight Up" by Paula Abdul.

I only know her from American Idols, never heard her music.

If you go to this site, you can look up the song that was at the top of the charts on the day you were born.

Mine was,

Love me Tender...Elvis Presley
If you like that site, I think you will love this one http://www.yamelo.com/ It has a timeline of top-40 songs so it is easily searchable.

On my birthday it was Abba with "The winner takes it all"

On 12/25/72 the number one song was Me and Mrs. Jones by Billy Paul. As I recall I didn't care for it at the time, but hey it's grown on me.

That song brings back memories that can't be discussed in public. I would so like to tell you about the Vaughn twins.
