Somewhere, out in the vast abyss of the Interweb, I found today an interesting site that lets you look up the #1 Billboard song on the U.S. charts on any date in history, as far back as the 1890s. No joke.

Upon my discovery of this site, I wasted no time in looking up the top song on the date I was born, and each year subsequent to that. I was a little disappointed (Gloria Estefan & Miami Sound Machine, “Anything for You”… Really now???) that there wasn’t anything truly epic or classic on there, but I suppose, “MMMBop” by Hanson and “Livin’ La Vida Loca” by Ricky Martin count for something… and two songs by Janet Jackson! Impressive.

Upon further inspection, looking at the hits of the years beyond that of my birth, I see that there are some decent songs/artists on the list: two by Elvis the King himself, as well as two by the Beatles… but still, nothing too stellar, IMO.

So, dear friends, what were the top songs on the date of your birth (or another remarkable date in your life)?

Here’s to hoping something truly worthy makes the list this year. 😉
