Oliver was born at a special time for music, the current big hit at the moment is Gangnum Style, a Korean hit that has taken the world by storm. I find this particularly interesting, as Asia becomes more and more influencial in the west, their culture will penetrate ours. Gangnum Style is strangley catchy and very entertaining but not a song I am a huge fan of (musically speaking).
This got me thining, what were the hits when I was born?
I sent an email to my dad asking him which song were popular when I came around, 30 years ago. Here are some of them that he remembers
- Freeze Frame – The J. Geils Band
- Make A Move On Me – Olivia Newton-John
- Key Largo – Bertie Higgins
There is no denying that Freeze Frame is cheesy, probably just as cheesy as Gangnum style. I guess Oliver and I were born when cheesy music ruled the airways.
What song was a big hit when you were born? Let me know on Facebook.
