I think it's time to give this series a revival (as I've just remembered about it)

Anne-Marie is set to return to the chart with new single 'Birthday' but how does it compare to other people's birthdays? (that went top 40) Whose birthday party will you be going to?

None of these are particularly great (out of those I've heard) so I'll go for Katy's even if she has quite a few better songs.

So I was just randomly listening to Kim Wilde's 'Here Come The Aliens' album from a couple of years ago (mostly because I'd forgotten about it), and just as I opened this thread, what song on that album should start playing but a song called... 'Birthday'. Now I'm really freaked out, what is going on? mellow.gif

Anyway, once I'd got over that I voted for Will.I.Am & Cody Wise, I know it's a bit of a naff song but it's always been a bit of a guilty pleasure for me!

Has to be Altered Images for me! It's My Birthday was nice at the time but hasn't particularly aged well for me.

I voted for Altered Images.

Here's a young Jeff Lynne from 1968 with his first group The Idle Race:

Has to be will.i.am. An iconic song. Stevie Wonder a close second.

I don't think I know that Altered Images song that has so many votes? ;o

Yes I went for the will.i.am/Cody Wise song too.

I usually like early 80s songs but the Altered Images song is too poppy for me. Follow-up hit 'See Those Eyes' is easily better imo.

Peaked at 65 the first two times it was released, but it was later remixed and got all the way to... 64!

Altered Images for me!

It's the most well known for me and the fact it's got so many bites and is 40 years old kinda shows that.
