What was playing the day you were born?

If for some obscure and fun reason you should want to know what was the top song in the USA the day you were born look here.

And so on the day that I emerged squalling into a world then still at war, it was Bing Crosby and the Andrew Sisters singing...wait for it...
Don't Fence Me In.

Appropriate, huh?

Heh. Yeah, that fits pretty well.

Apparently I sneaked into the world while a song called Runaway was playing.

Mine was Happy Together by The Turtles, doesn't have any particular meaning for me...but I do like singing it out loud when doing housework!

Change Partners sung by Fred Astaire. I guess I did many years later. Fred couldn't really sing but I always enjoyed listening to him. They gave me the war for my 1st birthday present Glenda.

I see you are reading Born in Death, I read that a few weeks ago. I enjoy that series of books.

I did not enjoy Born in Death as much as the previous one I read in the series. I think because there was not enough futuristic feel to it, and somehow it did not make me feel enough curiosity about whodunnit.
