Hey geneaphiles - it's Saturday Night, time for more Genealogy Fun!!!
Tonight, we're going to go down memory lane a bit.
1) 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.
2) Go to http://www.thisdayinmusic.com/birthdayno1 and enter the date and select from UK, US or Australia record lists. Note: the first date available is 1 January 1946.
Alternatively, go to http://www.joshhosler.biz/ and enter the month and date and see a list of songs for each year since 1940.
3) Tell us what your results are (If you are sensitive about your age, don't list the date or year... ) on a blog post of your own, a comment to this post, or in a Facebook status line or note.
This week's SNGF ties in with this week's 52 Weeks of Personal Genealogy & History, which also covers songs. I wrote in my post for that topic:
The week I was born, the number 1 song in the United States was Wild Thing by The Troggs. I like that, as I've always liked the simple, straightforward nature of the song. Basic power chords.
