Thread Name: What was #1 on the day you were born.
Subject: RE: What was #1 on the day you were born.
My parents kept the New York Times for the day I was born (28 October 1937), but either the state of the Hit Parade that day was not news, or it was not fit to print. Wikipedia, however, says that the top tune for the year was "One-o'Clock Jump" with Count Basie, which I am sorry to say I know nothing about. No. 2 was "Sing Sing Sing" with Benny Goodman, which I do admire.
