7-Song Perfect Playlist for "the Day"

There hasn’t been a lot of posting here lately, for a number of reasons including sickness, being busy at work, and sometimes being just plain tired.

But today we have a special 7-Song Perfect Playlist – seven great songs that were #1 on my birthday, in various years. And you probably don’t have to be a genius to figure out why I’m posting it today.

1961 – “Blue Moon,” The Marcels

1964 – “Can’t Buy Me Love,” The Beatles

1968 – “(Sittin’ On) The Dock of the Bay,” Otis Redding

1971 – “Just My Imagination,” The Temptations

1978 – “Night Fever,” The Bee Gees

1983 – “Billie Jean,” Michael Jackson

And, 2009 – “Poker Face,” Lady Gaga

Precious few great (or even good songs for long stretches at a time, but I suppose you could do worse than these seven.
