brian adams - hell yes

I heard about this on 590 The Fan Thursday morning, and I've seen it other places, too. There's this theory that whatever song was #1 on your 18th birthday somehow represents your life in some way. Foolish me, I decided to try it. The song that was #1 on my 18th birthday was:

'Have You Ever Really Loved A Woman' by Brian Adams.

Wow, that's a thinker. That could definitely be taken a couple of ways. If I was a lesbian, I'd get it completely. I just happen to be straight, and with a gorgeous, handsome, sweet and funny man.

If it was possibly referring to some experimentation, perhaps in college, it's wrong there, too. No such luck. Yes, I've kissed a couple of girls, but they were tiny pecks. Nothing that would constitute 'really loving a woman'.

I can say, however, that I truly love a handful of women. My sisters and mommy, of course, are no brainers. I've also got a couple of very close girlfriends. So I guess in that respect, I have really loved a woman.

Okay, so it's a stupid theory. But fun, and a great Friday timewaster! Here's the
link. If you're one of my 3 or 4 consistent readers (hi there!), I'm curious to see what your song is, and whether you think it relates to your life somehow.

this was fun! 'it's too late' by carole king was #1 when i was born and 'if you don't know me by now' by simply red when i turned 18. they're both very much mellow, easy listening & a bit depressing if you ask me. maybe i should check my 21st and 16th bdays for something more upbeat!

Too funny...the number 1 song on the day I was born was Brandy (You're a Fine Girl) by Looking Glass. Considering that's also my name, I guess it shows my mother was unduly influenced by the radio. Ask my brother, Sue ;)

Mine was Boyz II Men, "End of the Road," which seems strangely apropos.

I Swear by All-4-One...a horrible R&B version of a horrible country song. Could it possibly be any worse? How depressing. 90's music sucks.
