A version of this post ran on Facebook on June 13th.
I’ve never thought about this before in my life, but this afternoon I started wondering what the #1 song on the radio was when I was born— May 1st, 1954. I did a Google search and now I know. It was Perry Como singing “Wanted.” Here he is doing a live version of it in 1956.
I wish I had been born on December 4th of 1954 when the #1 song was “Mr. Sandman” by The Chordettes but you can’t always get what you want (The Rolling Stones, July, 1969).
