SNGF - #1 Songs

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

You know you're really old when the year list doesn't go back far enough! Got a good laugh out of trying.
