Here's a quickie musical meme, courtesy of Scalzi:
Using this site, find and reveal the song that was #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart the day you were born.
The #1 song on the day I came into the world, September 15, 1969, was "Sugar, Sugar" by The Archies. A dippy little tune, but harmless and memorable, in that persistent audio-virus kind of way. I can live with it.
Incidentally, as I look over this song list, I find that the last #1-on-my-birthday I actually liked was Guns 'n' Roses' "Sweet Child o' Mine," way back in 1988. And if that's not sufficient to reveal how unhip I am, I don't even recognize any of the songs from that year forward, a span of almost 20 years now, except for Aerosmith's "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing" in '98 and -- God help me -- the Macarena in '96.
I will now hang my head in shame and prepare for your hoots of derision...
[Addendum: Okay, I've been looking at that list again and I realized that I also know the song from 2000, Madonna's "Music." And the title of that Nelson tune from '90 sounds vaguely familiar. But still, I think it's pretty obvious that I disconnected from popular music in a major way sometime around 1989. Personally, I blame Kurt Cobain...]
