The Music of Our Lives

I came across a website that I thought I would share with you.

On this website, you can find out what was the #1 Billboard song on any date in history — the day you were born, the day your spouse or your child(ren) were born, the day you graduated from high school or college, the day you got married, the day someone close to you died.

I found, for example, that the #1 song on the day that I was born was "Mack the Knife" by Bobby Darin.

The top song on the day my brother was born was "Telstar" by The Tornados.

And, out of curiosity, I checked to see what the top song was the day I received my master's degree. It was "Black or White" by Michael Jackson.

Try it out. Pick a random date, or pick one that has special significance for you.
