An NPR story led me to This Day in Music, a website that will tell you the top song on any given day in the U.S., U.K., or Australia.

Plugging in my 1974 birthday gives me these hits:

Down Under, it was David Bowie’s glam rock number, “Sorrow”:

In the U.S., we get a rare instrumental, “Love’s Theme,” from Barry White’s Love Unlimited Orchestra:

And in Great Britain, they were rocking out to Mud’s “Tiger Feet”:

I think I like the last one best, although this may be the first time I’ve ever heard it. What are some of the songs from important dates in your history? Leave them in the comments…
