SLO Challenge – Day 3
I am not a big fan of morning talk shows. I don’t usually watch them. However, the other day Kelly and Michael were on in the background as I was checking emails and FB. I was only half listening when Kelly mentioned a web site that would tell you what the number one song was on the day you were born.
This caught my interest so I listened. When that segment was over I decided to check it out just for fun. Big mistake. The site is playback.fm. There is a banner that tells you to click here to find the number one song on the day you were born. I did. I entered my birthday, August 4, 1951 and clicked. What came up made me feel my age.
The number one song on the day I was born was “Come on-a My House” sung by Rosemary Clooney. For all of you young ones out there, that would be George Clooney’s aunt. My thoughts on that particular song might come in a later post.
Anyway, to make matters worse, there is also a place to click if you want to know what song you were conceived to. Really? They just calculate back nine months exactly so the song might not be all that accurate. Of course, counting ourselves and any siblings, we know that that is only the number of times our parents “got frisky”.
Curiosity got the best of me so I had to check it out. Are you ready for this? I wasn’t. Nine months prior to the day I was born the number one song was “Goodnight, Irene” by Gordon Jenkins and the Weavers. I can see many of you out there scratching your head and saying, “Who?” and “That is really a song?”
There is also a place you can click on to see tho top 100 songs of the year your were born.
So, dare I ask? What was the number one song on the day you were born? What song were you conceived to? If anyone says it was something by Brittney Spears I am so outta here.
