born_to_me posted this on Facebook. I felt I should bring it here

Go to this site and find the top song on your birthday. List the top song for your birthday each year you've been alive.

If you want to know why you shouldn't listen to the radio, just look at this list. Then throw that thing away.

MAYBE one song I can deal with ... kinda two songs. I'll let you guess which two.

1960 Are You Lonesome Tonight Elvis Presley

I have to go back to the 60s to find a couple of songs that I actually like.

THE 1950s
1959 Heartaches by the Number by Guy Mitchell
1958 The Chipmunk Song David Seville & the Chipmunks

So, the #1 song the week I was born was a novelty song with sped up voices. That explains a lot. As for the rest, now I know why my birthday SUCKS every year.
