Mine was Physical by Olivia Newton-John. I laughed so hard when I saw that…

In the year 2525. My wife hates that song. Ha!

Hers was Sundown by Gordon Lightfoot. She gets the better song, but I don’t know if I’ll tell her.

But I like yours too Marko. Ok, maybe the lyrics aren’t all that “Christian”, but “it has a nice beat and I you can dance to it.”

“If you want to be happy for the rest of your life, never make a pretty woman your wife. So from my personal point of view, get an ugly girl to marry you!”

Mine was Hard to Say I’m Sorry by Chicago.

gypsies, tramps and thieves by cher…. this explains a lot. of course if you look at conception date at being 9 months (technically 40 weeks) then the song was “One Bad Apple” by the Osmonds

I’m screwed either way.

Riddle - Ooo, I like that. For me, my “conception” song was “Hey Jude” by the Beatles. I like that a lot better.

“I Got You Babe” by Sonny & Cher - pretty appropriate!

Hey Mark I’m to going to go out on a limb here and take a guess without going to the site.

Hmmm… how about “if you want to be happy”. (5/20/63).

We can work it out by The Beatles Jan 6, 1966 I have gotten a lot of strange looks about my birthday through the years being 1 - 6 - 66

[…] MarkO points out where you can find out what was the number one song on the day you were born. I drew the Beatles’ Paperback Writer. I’m sure it’s a sign, but what could it mean…. ;^) […]
