40th Birthdays

As well as being BBC Radio One's 40th birthday, it is also my brother's 40th too. So Happy Birthday bro' and here is a list of today's top ten singles chart followed by the top ten on the day they were both born:

2007:

  1. All About You - Sugababes
  2. No U Hang Up/If It's Ok With You - Shane Ward
  3. Ayo Technology - 50 Cent/Timberlake/Timberland
  4. Beautiful Girls - Sean Kingston
  5. Let Me Think About It - Ida Corr Vs Fedde Le Grand
  6. Hey There Delilah - Plain White T's
  7. Stronger - Kanye West
  8. 1973 - James Blunt
  9. She's So Lovely - Scouting For Girls
  10. Shut Up and Drive - Rihanna

The Official UK Singles Chart is compiled by The Official UK Charts Company

1967:

  1. The Last Waltz -Engelbert Humperdinck
  2. Excerpt From 'A Teenage Opera'- Keith West
  3. Itchycoo Park - Small Faces
  4. Flowers In The Rain - Move
  5. Let's Go To San Francisco - Flowerpot Men
  6. Reflections - Diana Ross & The Supremes
  7. I'll Never Fall In Love Again - Tom Jones
  8. San Francisco (Be Sure To Wear Some Flowers In Your Hair) - Scott McKenzie
  9. Hole In My Shoe - Traffic
  10. We Love You / Dandelion - Rolling Stones

I doubt the 2007 tunes will be considered classics, like most of the 1967 tracks are, in 40 years time.
