Top of the Charts

Posted on March 27th, 2012

What was Top of the charts when your child was born?

I am not a music person at all and dread a meme heading my way on the subject as I know it will involve research on my behalf! This one from the lovely Donna and Elisabeth at  and Kelly  is no exception! I have to confess to not having a clue what was even in the charts let alone at the top when any of my 6 children were born. Anyway I have duly some digging and these are the results:

My eldest son born in the last century  06.05.98  Ally at work at Coombe Mill

Boyzone was number 1 with “All that I need”. They had made it big time with 10 consecutive top 4 singles. Thanks to the internet, I am sounding knowledgeable now!  


 My Millennium boy 07.07.00

Felix Loves the farm Quad

 Kylie Minogue was top of the charts with “Spinning Around”. Apparently it had been 10 years since she was last number 1. 

My Animal lover 21.3.02, who has just celebrated his 10th Birthday!Theo bottle feeding the lambs

Will Young had just won pop idol and  “Evergreen” was at number one and became the biggest seller of the year with over a million sales in the first week alone. 

Triplets on the Farm

My triple trouble 21.04.04. 

McFly held the top slot with 5 colours in her hair. Not my favourite of their tracks but I think there is a tune hiding in there somewhere! 

OK I now pass the baton onto
