It was 40 years ago today

This is fun, via genericus. Wow, a lot of classic music happened the year I was born. The kind of stuff you put in the boom box for the beach in summer nowadays: Early Beatles, Motown R&B, etc. Plus both “House of the Rising Sun” and “Surfin’ Bird”! Woo! I’m sure I like a couple of the Al Hirt tunes because my parents had a few of his records when I was a little kid that I enjoyed, like “Honey in the Horn”.

Go to and put your birth year into the search thingy. The first link is likely the top 100 songs of that year. Cut and paste that list here. Bold the ones you actually like. Understand that the word “like” in this case means, in the very least, “wouldn’t immediately change the radio station from.” Pick a favorite. Underline that favorite.

1964 all right
