What were they listening to when you were born?

Here's something a little different. The #1 song on this date in history site allows one to search by date for and listen to Billboard's #1 song on a specific date in history back to the 1890's. In order to hear the songs one needs to have iTunes installed on the computer. I found that searching for songs for dates such as children's births, weddings etc triggered my memories for the times these events occured. When I was married the #1 was "Chariots of Fire" by Vangelis (haha very appropriate) and when I was born the #1 was "Only Forever" by Bing Crosby (if only!).
