    Vaya Con Dios - Les Paul and Mary Ford.

    Jo Stafford is great - here's a cool track where Charlie Haden's band mixed her old vocal into their interpretation at about the 6:30 mark into the track.

      You must have been born close to the same time as my wife - that was the #1 song when she was born too.

        That's pretty strange. I could see it if my birthday was in mid December but it's a whole two weeks after Christmas.

          I can tell you without looking it up - it was Sherry, by the Four Seasons. Not a bad song or group by any means, but I think I would have rather had Green Onions by Booker T and The MGs, which I consider to be one of the coolest instrumental songs ever waxed. Green Onions was at #5 at the time.

            "How High the Moon," Les Paul & Mary Ford. I actually knew that from before (but had pretty much forgotten). It was a hit for quite a while, as I recall.

            By the way, I'm more than a little leery of giving websites my b'day; I used an approximate date here. That said, most people seem to have no problem exposing their BD. I get 2 or 3 Facebook BD notifications a day for other folks it seems like sometimes.

            It's funny, I just did a Google accounts 'security audit' (very brief) because they're adding 2 GB to your Drive space when you do and noticed that they're finally suggesting people drop their 'security questions' (Who was your first grade teacher? What was your first pet's name? Etc.) because they have figured so prominently in some prominent hacks of tech writers and celebs. Frankly, I couldn't believe when Google added such questions. So dumb, right off the top.

                  The day before I was born it was Sherry by the Four Seasons (like Phil),

                  But for the actual day I was born, this odd instrumental was the number one hit: Telstar by The Tornados (an odd name for a British group where they rarely - if ever- see a tornado).
