What was Number 1 on your 14th birthday? Find out what song supposedly ‘defines your life’
According to brand new popular myth, the song that was Number 1 on your 14th birthday is the one that defines your entire life.
Why? We’re not entirely sure. The theory started doing the rounds on Twitter last week thanks to user Swank0cean and it has since gone viral, with over 5,000 replies sparking elated or disappointed reactions.
So, what are you waiting for? To find out who was reigning supreme on the Official Singles Chart on your 14th birthday, simply enter your date of birth in our Official Chart archive. Delighted or extremely troubled by the result? Tell us in the comments below.
You can also find out on our page that lists every Official Number 1 single ever, going back to 1952.
Just for fun, we punched in the 14th birthdays of some music stars to see which song supposedly defines them best.
Dua Lipa: Black Eyed Peas – I Gotta Feeling
Stormzy: Kanye West – Stronger
Britney Spears: Robson & Jerome – I Believe/Up On The Roof
(We have a feeling Brit won’t be familiar with this one.)
George Ezra: Rihanna – Umbrella
Calvin Harris: All Saints – Never Ever
(We hope for Calvin’s sake this emotional singalong doesn’t define his life.)
Anne-Marie: Tony Christie ft. Peter Kay (Is This The Way To) Amarillo
Kylie: Madness – House Of Fun
(We reckon Kylie will be pleased with this one.)
Brandon Flowers: Robson & Jerome – Unchained Melody/White Cliffs Of Dover
(Two timeless classics right there.)
Ed Sheeran: U2 – Sometimes You Can’t Make It On Your Own
(Except if you’re Ed Sheeran.)
Taylor Swift: Will Young – Leave Right Now
Peter Kay: Firm Bark – Star Trekkin’
