Birthday #1's

Today, I begin my 39th year on the planet (though I am celebrating my 38th birthday...don't you love how that works).  I have, for the past few years, compiled some sort of list of things that I am older than.  This year, I decided to compile a list of the number one Billboard songs on my birthday each year since I was born.  

I think it's quite interesting to see how music has and hasn't changed because when I listen to the Hustle, I hear connective tissue to the #1 today, Blurred Lines.

Here's the list!
