Music History in the Making

The daily post topic from Word Press was:

For each year you have been alive, write a single sentence about the most important thing that happened to you that year.

If you don’t want to get too personal, write a sentence about the most important historic event, or event most interesting to you, that happened in the world that year.

I thought it would be more fun (for me) to see what was the top song for every year, on my birthday (which is coming up in a couple weeks).  So here they are, according to vinylsurrender.com:
