going underground by The Jam
China in Your Hand. Oh dear.
China Girl, I think
it was 99 red balloons by Nena but my memory is a little sketchy
it was Hello - Lionel Richie in the UK and Jump - Van Halen in the US
That means we were born essentially within weeks of each other - mine was 99 Red Balloons and Jump, in the Uk and US respectively.

Every Breath You Take - The Police

by the Specials. One of my favourite songs.
Also, I was born in Clapton, which was apparently being boarded up and torn apart that week due to low-level race riots. So it's pretty appropriate.
We're practically the same person!!!!
I have a mate who also claims this (born in june/july I think). He thinks his is so much cooler than mine but he's just jealous that he wasn't born when Eurovision stars Bucks Fizz were at number one with Making Your Mind Up like I was.
I'm well jealous.
Commiserations. Hopefully you got out early, like I did.

He looks like Peter Shilton
In Vietnam they were nnnnnnnineteen. I used to have a tape with that and Feargal Shearkey's 'A Good Heart' on it. Great days.

Ferry 'Cross The Mersey - The Christians, Holly Johnson, Paul McCartney, Gerry Marsden & Stock Aitken & Waterman
I have never heard this.
i can't remember what for...
Mine, Mississippi by Pussycat(?). I think they've just made that up. Anyone?
Just not that version?
"Feeeeeeeeeeerry, 'cross the Meeeeeeeersey"
I think there was some sort of ferry disaster on, funnily enough, the Mersey. I remember the song coming out, I just didn't pay attention to the news that much back then....
it was for hillsborough

World In Motion - Englandneworder
They are some strange lookin fellas, thanks to them we had Spiller, erm...
shame I didn't do this in 2004, then I could go "how ironic, that's my age", instead of doing it now when even that vague connection between me and Paul Hardcastle is missing
