Music can conjure up memories, change your mood, and move you to dance. It’s medicine when needed and it’s a lovely distraction to a long commute. But can a song tell your future? Find the #1 song in your birth year and perhaps it will reveal how your 2023 will go. You can read into or not…just for fun.

Because there is only so much time in a day, the list here will date back to 1955. The list is based on Billboard’s country charts and Country 1025 airplay (from our birth year of 1993).
