    1955: Mabeline by Chuck Berry

    16 Tons by Tennesse Ernie Ford is still damn cool and it also came out that year. So did Ain't That A Shame by Fats Domino.

    Red Square wins.

    Boy, 1969 was a good year for music. Abbey Road. Let It Bleed. Tommy. Led Zeppelins 1 and 2. CCR at the top of their game. Hendrix at Woodstock. Johnny Cash at San Quentin. The Beatles on the rooftop....

    I can't narrow it down past "Badge" by Cream or "Gimme Shelter" by the Stones or the second half of Abbey Road.

    That 1950 list is very cool. "The Fat Man" is one of the first rock and roll songs.

    Led Zeppelin I and II came out in 1969 as well as Let it Bleed, Abbey Road, not to mention that Woodstock ended 2 days before I was born. It would be hard to pick one favorite.

    I don't know, I was pretty little at the time.

    But that's my favorite song from the year YOU were born.
