    Okay, this is kind of fun. Let's see how old, or not so old you are!

    step 1: Go here to choose the song for the day of the week you were born which was #1 on the Billboard Top 100
    List of Billboard number-one singles - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    If you were born earlier than 1958, there's a "pre-hot" 100 era listing for you, so you don't feel left out!

    step 2: Post your song and discuss. As an added bit of fun, post a YouTube video link (if possible) so we can easily laugh or sing along...

    My #1 song:

    Jim Croce "Time in a Bottle"

    As an added challenge, also find the song which sticks out the most in your mind from the year you graduated high school...

    Mine was Meatloaf, "I Would Do Anything for Love"

    LOL hey, they can be a Liberal as long as the song is good. I like to think music sings to the soul, and we are all tied together for a moment while we celebrate life with music.

    Rolling Stone for when I was born- blah! Never was a fan of theirs.

    But for high school it was We are the World. Is this the song that they hyped and had everyone tune their radio on a certain day at a certain time? Like a nationwide playing?

    I remember watching the TV show and had the Coonskin hat and flintlock rifle to go with it.

    Now I feel old. [tongue]

    I'm apparently a very disco child.
