What was the No.1 song on the day…

This blog post comes from Randy Seaver’s suggestion for Saturday Night Genealogy Fun on November 16, 2019. He suggests looking at https://www.thisdayinmusic.com/birthday-no1/ and figuring out “the #1 song on the day you were born? Or on your birthday when you were 15? When you were 18? Or when you married? Or some other important date in your life.”
