You may not know this but on the soundjack app you can find out the charts of any date. So if, for example, you would like to know who was topping the charts on your day of birth all you have to do is the following…
Open the app and select Music from the options shown at the bottom of the screen.
Then Select the second option down ‘Official singles chart’.
As you can see it shows you the current chart and in the top right there is the current date>> select the date.
You will now be able to change the date and whatever date you choose it will then take you back to the last screen displaying the chart from that date!
So for this week’s blog we are having a look at a couple of number ones from a few famous October birthdays!
