Randy Seaver at GeneaMusings has another edition of Saturday Night Genealogy Fun! What was the #1 song on the day you were born? Or on your birthday when you were 15? Or when you married? Or some other important date in your life.
I went to This Day In Music to find the songs. (These are all hits on the U.S. charts)
Okay, so I'm not gonna lie ... I was born in 1968. The #1 song on my birthday was Marvin Gaye's I Heard it Through the Grapevine.
Now that I feel really old, I might as well go through the list.
15th birthday (1983) - Say Say Say - Paul McCartney & Michael Jackson ironically enough, today is the 2nd anniversary of Mr. Jackson's death.
Marriage (Feb 1989) - Straight Up - Paula Abdul I guess I got the answer to that question ...
My divorce (2001) -Lady Marmalade - Christina Aguilera, Pink, Li'l Kim, Mya
My daughter's birthday (May 1990) - Vogue - Madonna
Paralegal by day, but my alter ego is a Genealogist. I have been working on my genealogy in fits and starts since about 1990, when my grandfather passed away and I inherited his research. I have just begun working through the NGS Home Study Course, well on my way toward genealogy certification.
