So what was the hit song the day you were born?

Happy B-day, LAG. Many Happy Returns.

There are a couple different websites out there (and a book which uses an astrology angle) which differ a little in their methodology i.e. if the hit list comes out but once a week, which days do you ascribe the hit song to- so unless there is a big hit, you get a couple choices of what the #1 song was on your birthdate. [Mine was "Johnny Angel" by Shelly Fabares.]

This one is as good as any

"The Lion Sleeps Tonight"

Baweembeway. I'll take it.

Happy Birthday, LAGuy. May you engage in as many minutes of debauchery or enlightenment or both as you can stand.
