Number one songs . . .

. . . at important dates in my life. Some are picked because they were number one on or near the date. Others were picked because of some odd coincidence.

My birthday: White Christmas - Bing Crosby
Mrs. Bulldog's birthday: In the Blue of the Evening - Tommy Dorsey
When I got my driver's license: Smoke Gets in Your Eyes - The Platters
High school graduation: Hit the Road, Jack - Ray Charles
Wedding day: So much in Love - The Tymes
Daughter's birthday: Baby Love - The Supremes

First "real" job and the big move to Omaha: Hello, Goodbye - The Beatles
Son #2 birthday: Aquarius/Let the Sunshine In - The Fifth Dimension
Masters' Degree: I Can See Clearly Now - Johnny Nash
10th wedding anniversary: You are the Sunshine of my Life - Stevie Wonder

Daughter's wedding: Can't Help Falling in Love - UB40
Our second big move - to Kansas City: A Whole New World - Peabo Bryson & Regina Belle

The day my department was eliminated, and I had to find another job - Fallin' - Alicia Keys
A new job and our third big move - to Virgina Beach: Dilemma - Nelly featuring Kelly Rowland

This will probably be the end of the list. There hasn't been a #1 song that I give a rat's fuzzy backside about since the new millenium.
