#1 birthday song

personal Add comments

So here’s a bit of a curious link. It tells you what the #1 song in the country was on the day you were born, or on any day you find particularly interesting.

For me? It’s “Nothing from Nothing” by Billy Preston:

“Nothing from nothing leaves nothing
You gotta have something, if you wanna be with me.
Nothing from nothing leaves nothing
You gotta have something, if you wanna be with me.

Yeah, yeah!
That’s right, baby
Yeah, baby.
Yeah!

I’m not tryin’ to be your hero
‘Cause that zero, is too cold for me – brrr! I’m not tryin’ to be your highness
‘Cause that minus is too low to see.

Oh, yeah
Yeah!
Yeah, yeah
Yeah!

Nothing from nothing leaves nothing
And I’m not stuffin’, believe you me
Don’t you remember I told ya, I’m a soldier
In the war on poverty.

Yes, I am
Yeah, yeah
Yeah!
Yeah, baby.

Nothing from nothing leaves nothing – isn’t that right?
You got to have something, if you wanna be with me – oh, baby!
Nothing from nothing leaves nothing
You got to have something to be with me.”

Yeah, baby
Yeah!
That’s right!
Yeah
Go ‘head!

You got to have something, if you wanna be with me
You got to bring me something, girl – ha! – if you wanna be with me
You got to know how to party
You got to know how to party
You got to know how to party, it’s alright
If you wanna be with me!”

Yep.

It is a rather catchy song now that I’m listening to it.
