My Weekend Music Needs Your Help!!!

Rick Herndon had the most wonderful suggestion. He thought it a great idea to post the number one song from the years of everyone’s births. I like it. Please use the comment section to let me know your year, and I’ll use the weekends to post four songs a day until I finish.

    The week of my birth it was That Lucky Old Sun by Frankie Laine. Heard of the song, and sort of heard of the singer.

    Yeah, Kat, the idea of just a YEAR isn’t gonna work. With 52 weeks & 52 possibilities of a #1 hit per year, you could be spending a LONG TIME posting them all for the masses who read this blog. Folks either have to send you the name of the song & artist & year. Or the actual birthday in the year. But, I’m glad you are taking it on.

    Music is a force that drives us all. Even those who say they don’t like music are affected by it. Since almost every movie and TV show they have ever seen has music in it, most church services have it, most modern elevators have it, malls certainly do, too. It provides the backdrop of our collective consciousness. It is as the material of the clothing we wear but do not feel, that we wear but do not see, whose susurration we do not hear as we walk about and squirm in our seats. Let he who is without music hum the first tune!

    Happy new year…

      There are so many web sites which list the top songs for each year that I doubt I’ll have any trouble. The first site I found listed the top ten, and for the years after Billboard started, it even gets easier.

      I can’t imagine someone who doesn’t like music.

      Happy New Year to you as well!!

    • Kat Says:

      What year, Rick?

  15. Sara A Says:

    1956 for me. I think my week in August was que sera sera with Doris Day, at least on the UK charts. Probably an Elvis song in the US.

    Happy New Year and thank you for brightening my days with your music and thoughts!

  16. Steve Says:

    Super idea Kat!

    August 1951

  17. Chris Says:

    Great idea, Kat. On the day I was born in 1963 Frank Ifield’s “The Wayward Wind” was number one here in the UK. Over your way it was “Hey Paula”. Tough choice!

    Yeah, as someone pointed out above, there are numerous no. 1s in a year. The one for my birthweek (in July 1954) was “Little Things Mean a Lot,” by Kitty Kallen. I posted it to Facebook where I first saw this meme

    • Kat Says:

      I thought I’d pick the one which is number 1 for the year-the one longest at that number on the hit parade.

    • Rick Oztown Says:

      I am the one who suggest this to Kat. But I don’t think the site got posted here to check. Go to this site to find out which song:
      This will give you the answer for the USA back through about 1940. You oldsters might not find it here.

  20. Bob Says:

    1947 for me

  21. Coleen Burnett Says:

    1957 for me!

  22. Sara A Says:

    We are all a bunch of oldies but goodies! 🙂

  23. Jay Bird Says:

    Another 1947, Sara’s right, we’re oldies… but goodies.

  24. fred lapides Says:

    1947 may well be the most popular here but for my parents, 1929 had both the Great Depression and Me..either both bad news or Good and Bad
