Birth Week Song

The lads over at Leper Pop have a fun game going.

Click the link above and then go to Cash Box 100 to find the top 100 tunes from the week of your birth. Select one that best represents you and then come back here and let us know in the comments.

My song? Poetry in Motion by Johnny Tillotson. Yeah - that is so totally the Chai-rista. I'm like a swan, I tell ya! If only you could see me, you'd agree.

Listen to my song, which is all about me, here.

"Get Back" from The Beatles.

"Have You Seen Your mother, Baby, Standing in the Shadow?"
I confess a weakness for not only all things Rolling Stones, but in particular their raw early stuff, like "This Could Be the Last Time" and "Hitchhiker."

Seeing that list also reminded me of poor Bobby Darin's ill-fated foray into Folk music ("If I Were a Carpenter"). I think Michael Buble is what Darin would have been if he'd had better arrangements, better orchestra, and better advice.

"I Feel Fine" by the Beatles. Or perhaps "Laugh, Laugh" by the Beau Brummels. Heck, they both beat Petulia Clark's "Downtown", which was No. 1 that week, but which is a song I've never been able to stand.

"The House of the Rising Sun" by The Animals.

"One Mint Julep," by Ray Charles. (Beating out, among other competitors, the "My Three Sons" theme performed by Lawrence Welk.)

I Feel Fine had a pretty good run. It was number 1 on my birthday (Dec. 19, 1964) and stayed there until January 23 of 1965, when Downtown replaced it.

Which also means I'm officially older than Robbo.

I actually kind of like Downtown, perhaps because of the movie Flight of the Intruder.

"Mrs. Robinson" by Simon and Garfunkel. One of my favorite songs of all times, and number one with a bullet the week I was born.

I'd say Good Vibrations [Beach Boys, of course], or The Eggplant That Ate Chicago - Dr. West’s Medicine Show And Junk Band.

The #3 song for the week of 1/25/1964, Louie Louie. Fat, drunk, & stupid has worked for me so far.

Stranger in Paradise by Tony Bennett, which officially makes me the moldy oldie on this site.
