On my Birthday, the Spice Girls and the Macarena were number one. I-I'm embarrassed. 1996 has got nothing on '66.

And, thirty years earlier, the Beatles performed the concert that convinced Paul it was time to stop touring. Which is kinda cool, considering this led to them creating some truly awesome stuff in the studio.

The McCartney-agrees-to-quit-touring date was 21 August 1966.

I meant to say Meet The Beatles earlier.

"Hello Goodbye"'s  violas recorded by George Martin on the day I was born.

Where's Zig? I believe he was born when the Beatles were active, a couple of years earlier than myself. I'd like to know what Beatle-event coincided with his own personal d.o.b. (if any)

I like black music, disco music. I like the disco music that's out now - John Lennon, 1975

On my birthday the #1 song in the US was One Sweet Day by Mariah Carey with Boyz to Men. Sadly no good songs where around in 1995. But 25 years earlier on my birthday the #1 song was My Sweet Lord. So my birthday in other years had better songs.

August 21st, 1966 (thirty years before me): Eleanor Rigby/Yellow Submarine

I like my birthday-in-music much better now!

September 7th. Damn, it would have been funny if it was the same date. I didn't see the part of your post about convincing Paul to stop touring…

It seems like a lot of people on here were born in August/September 1996. Weird.

OK, vonbontee; ask and you shall receive. I was born on 6 Nov 1963. The #1's were…  
UK – You'll Never Walk Alone - Gerry and the Pacemakers

US- Sugar Shack – Jimmy Gilmer & the Fireballs

AUS – Royal Telephone - Jimmy Little

As for the Beatles themselves, they were preparing for their final concert appearance in Northampton.

16 days later they released With the Beatles and John F. Kennedy was assassinated. I didn't do it, however. I was nowhere near Dallas at the time. 

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.

So you're not denying that you were the owner of the rifle found in your cradle?  Or that you scrawled "Die JFK Die" in crayon on the wall of your nursery?

What a precocious child, Zig.

To you swear to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth? If you do, What were you doing at 1:13 PM the 22nd of November, 1963?

Don't ask the question yet! Wait 'till he's sworn to tell the truth! If we don't, who knows what'll come out of his mouth?

I guess. Do you swear to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth?
