    Except for Mike d'Abo (the singer) it looks like the band agrees with you.

    I Feel Fine by The Beatles. At least my birthday song doesn't suck.

    No matter how corrupt, greedy, and heartless our government, our corporations, our media, and our religious and charitable institutions may become, the music will still be wonderful. - Kurt Vonnegut

    Perhaps finding the happy medium is harder than we know.

    A link like this was posted back in our Yahoo days. I got a different result from this link: Michael by the Highwaymen. You remember "Michael row the boat ashore. Ha-lay-loo-yah". I remember the Smothers Brothers doing it. But the link that was posted at the Yahoo Group was something I did not recognize. I commented "Must have been before my time", which got a couple of laughs.

    I think a better question would be:

    What was the number one song in the year you turned 16?

    For me, that was 1975, so probably 'Stayin' Alive"

    EDIT: ahh, that was up there in '77, when I graduated high school

    "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds' - Elton John for my 16th birthday year
    "Normal is just the average of extremes" - Gary Lessor

    Well, if were doing 16, then it's this crappy song, When Doves Cry. I simply don't care about Prince. His music never did anything for me.
    Carry On My Blood-Ejaculating Son - JKL2000

    HODOR!

    Theme from A Summer Place by Percy Faith and His Orchestra. Which is hilarious only because the song appears in Animal House.

    Beautiful instrumental tune, with vocal colorings, that captures the beauty and character of the city of Lisbon, Portugal. My parents probably had the album when that cut made number 1 on Billboard, in 1956.

    For my 16th birthday, the song would be "Billy, Don't Be a Hero".

    Oy.

    My 16th was smack in the middle of a three-week run for 'Sir Duke'. Nice, although I definitely didn't appreciate Stevie then like I do now.

    Happy with what I have to be happy with.
