Steve Says brought up an interesting challenge…so I thought I’d check it out.
What’s the song that was #1 when you were born…
In the US #1 – Donna Summer – MacArthur Park
I’ve never heard this song but I swear upon listening some of it had to be used for the theme song to The Neverending Story. I swear, listen to it and you’ll hear a few measures of it.
In the UK #1 – John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John – Summer Nights
I can get behind this one. I’ve been watching Grease since I was a little kid and even played Rizzo in my 5th grade acting camp program. I have a special edition DVD complete with leather jacket DVD case now.
I’m not sure what any of this says about me, both songs seem to have a wistful longing to them. Perhaps it’s saying that I’m also longing for those summer nights when MacArthur park is freezing? (Or melting?)
Anyway, fun challenge! Thanks Steve!
PS – I totally stepped out. Right foot first and everything.
