The most popular song on the day I was born

On April 26, 1940, the top song was "In the Mood" by Glenn Miller. Check yours.

Cool site, isn't it?

Mine was The Battle of New Orleans by Johnny Horton:

In 1814 we took a little trip
Along with Colonel Jackson down the mighty Mississip.
We took a little bacon and we took a little beans
And we caught the bloody British in the town of New Orleans.

We fired our guns and the British kept a'comin.
There wasn't nigh as many as there was a while ago.
We fired once more and they began to runnin' on
Down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico.

How is it that I know this song if it was popular on the day I was born? I remember singing it in HS, for goodness sake!

"Sheila" by Tommy Rowe. I don't think I've ever heard of it!

I LOVE that song! But I'm here to tell you that you may POSSIBLY have won the Hachette box of books at my blog. Come see what the confusion is! :)
