    "Tennessee River" by Alabama. The day after my birthday, it was beaten out by "Driving My Life Away" by Eddie Rabbitt.

    Okay....



    Things just got creepy.


    I looked up the #1 Tune when I was born:




    I've never heard it...but I hear this tune constantly as it's my todders personal favorite:





    "Time is a flat circle."

    Well I don't know when you was born but there was a very well received radio station in Chicago during the 30s and 40s that hosted a Country music show..I could sometimes tune it in..
    Matter of fact I won an amateur contest that had some of the Chicago stars as the main attraction..
    I think that might have been called the Chicago Barn Dance..Don't remember for sure..Might have been the Mid West Hayride..

    Very true! I've read quotes from a few guys about going to Chicago and playing on radio stations and dance halls etc back then.

    By the 80's those days were long gone though :(

    When I was coming up in town I'd never heard a single country tune until we moved to a very rural area, my folks & relatives & many others thought of country music as a novelty.

    Apparently I was born either before country music, or records (vinyl) were created. Bummer !!!

    This is terrible but still better than anything 'new' I've heard for a long, long time. Therefore I like it!
