Number One

Wanna feel old? “Bette Davis Eyes” by Kim Carnes was the number one song in America twenty years ago this week. Pretty horrifying, huh?

While I’m at it, note that the Beatles were at number one this Memorial Day weekend in 1964 (“Love Me Do”) and 1969 (“Get Back”), Ray Stevens was at the top in 1970 (“Everything IS Beautiful”) and 1974 (“The Streak”), and George Micheal and/or Wham hit in 1985 (“Everyting She Wants”) and 1988 (“One More Try”).

And to think I learned all this while taking a crap. It’s always a good thing to have entertaining bathroom books.
