I Heard it Through the Grape Vine

by Marvin Gaye was the number one song in the US on this date in 1969. In the UK it was Marmalade's Ob-La-Di Ob-La-Da (?).

For me it was "I Can't Help Myself" by the Four Tops. In England, Elvis Presley's version of "Crying In The Chapel" knocked off the Hollies "I'm Alive" (totally amazing song) for just that week! Haven't figured out what it was in the Netherlands yet, but I'll keep searching!

The #1 song for the friend who turned me on to the Birthday thing was The Osmonds "One Bad Apple." Ouch.
