Well, I obviously didn’t know and didn’t care about that at all until I saw this wonderful resource called The #1 Song on this Date in History. The database is based on the #1 song in the USA according to the Billboard magazine.
The database is really simple to use and I had a great time looking up songs that were #1 for other people’s birthdays and other occasions. And the database goes as far back as the 1890s and I’m sure everyone of your family and friends will be covered. 🙂 What’s wonderful too is that it links you to the US iTunes store if you so inclined into getting a copy of the song that was associated with you.
For the record, the #1 song on the day I was born was “The Way We Were” by Barbra Streisand. And appropriately for my wedding day, it was “Let Me Love You” by Mario. On the day that Matthew was born, Mariah Carey’s “We Belong Together” was #1.
Go find your #1 song!
