More Internet Silliness

Per the suggestion of this NPR article about "What does your birth date song say about you?" I checked.

I went to This Day in Music and put in my birth date.

My song?

Sunshine on My Shoulders by John Denver.
True enough. Sunshine on my shoulders DOES make me happy and I didn't really appreciate it until I came to Colorado. And I do love John Denver. His songs are sometimes a little simplistic, but dammit, sometimes I want the world to be a little bit simplistic and a lot more positive!

(No, this is NOT silly... it was on NPR!)

"I Can't Get No Satisfaction" by the Rolling Stones (US List).

Which seems a bit odd, since I don't really care for the Stones, nor do I like this song.

I like the UK selection better - "Mr. Tambourine Man" by The Byrds.

On the American charts, a song I've never heard of, but with a music-related title, which is interesting because on the UK charts my song is "I'd Like To Teach The World To Sing."

But I'll take the Aussie charts: "Imagine," by John Lennon. I'll take that in a heartbeat.

I got a one-hit wonder on the US chart (Freddy Fender) but effin' Tammy Wynette's Stand By Your Man on the UK chart. Awesome.
