Which songs were number one in the UK, US and Australian charts on the day I was born? Courtesy of [ profile] wellinghall and This Day in Music.

UK: I Hear You Knockin' - Dave Edmunds; though I'd have gone for the top of the charts of 21 November 1970 rather than 28 November as the engine does, so I also offer Voodoo Chile - The Jimi Hendrix Experience

Reviews for both on the excellent Popular: Voodoo Chile; I Hear You Knockin'.

US: I Think I Love You - Partridge Family

Australia: Lookin Out My Back Door - Creedence Clearwater Revival

and to counter accusations of Anglophone bias:

France: Deux amis pour un amour - Johnny Halliday

Germany: A Song of Joy - Miguel Rios

Italy: Spring, Summer, Winter and Fall - Aphrodite's Child

Netherlands: To My Father's House - Les Humphries Singers
