    The best song from the year you were born.

    Go back and find out what your favorite song was in the year of your birth and post them here. I actually really enjoyed having a look at how things have changed. It kind of cheered me up given some of the sadness that occurred here in Australia today. It looked like life was a whole lot more simple in those days and the music was awesome. So after much deliberation here is my birth year hit.

    Regards Cam

    But here you go:

    What a difference a day makes - Dinah Washington

    Far too many options from 1985 - Don Henly boys of summer, "Broken Wings" – Mr. Mister, "I Want to Know What Love Is" – Foreigner...; I'll be festive and list one of my favourite Christmas songs

    Shakin Stevens- You have pulled that one from left field Geoff. I preferred Kyrie from Mister Mister.

    If I look at the dutch Top 100, there's only a few people here might actually know. I guess Imagine by John Lennon is one of them
    From the UK list, there's a few famous options, like 'I'll be there - The Jackson 5', Your song - Elton John'' , and of course 'Brown Sugar - The Rolling Stones'



    I was quite curious as to what 'Ernie (The Fastest Milkman In The West)' by Bennie Hill is. So ...
