Which artists were #1 when you were born?

#1 Post by Joost » 16 May 2009 15:12

You can figure it out at http://www.thisdayinmusic.com/birthdayno1 .

For me (March 20, 1980):

UK: The Jam - Going Underground / Dreams of Children
US: Pink Floyd - Another Brick in the Wall (Part II)
AUS: Queen - Crazy Little Thing Called Love

Not bad, eh?
You charge each other for the time and breath it takes to say 'good morning',
But the truth is slowly dawning -- things are getting out of hand,
We all pursue our shattered dreams along the roads to our own ruin --
Watch our empires sink and wash away like castles made of sand.
And so cast off the lies that are your lives and find the truth within.
-- Martin Walkyier

Also, Balrogs have wings.

They say that there's a broken light for every heart on Broadway.
They say that life's a game, then they take the board away.
They give you masks and costumes and an outline of the story
Then leave you all to improvise their vicious cabaret...


Still the goddamn Batman.

We lost the world
Sometimes we hold it but it's slipping away
