12/12/12 and Music

Yesterday was 12/12/12 and the attention on different social media was overwhelming, although it’s difficult to call it news…

Later, when we are all even older than we are now, we might think back on that day and think: what music did we listen to back then? Assuming that ‘we’ all listen to the #1 in the charts; here it is:

Like it or not! I am trying to be objective..

Of course it is nice to look back as well, so I put down some funny dates with the #1 hit that time! Enjoy!
4/4/44 Besame Mucho (Kiss Me Much) – Jimmy Dorsey
5/5/55 Cherry Pink and Apple Blossom White – Perez Prado
6/6/66 When a Men Loves a Woman – Percy Sledge
7/7/77 Gonna Fly Now (Rocky Theme) – Bill Conti
8/8/88 Roll With It – Steve Winwood
9/9/99 Bailamos – Enrique Iglesias
1/1/01 Independent Woman – Destiny’ Child
2/2/02 U Got It Bad – Usher
3/3/03 All I Have – Jennifer Lopez feat. LL Cool J
4/4/04 Yeah! – Usher
5/5/05 Candy Shop – 50 Cent feat. Olivia
6/6/06 Bad Day – Daniel Powter
7/7/07 Umbrella – Rihanna feat Jay-Z
8/8/08 I Kissed A Girl – Katy Perry
9/9/09 I Gotta Feeling – Black Eyes Peas
10/10/10 Just The Way You Are – Bruno Mars
11/11/11 Someone Like You – Adele

What we learn from this? Absolutely nothing. But it is fun, though!

So to already give you a heads-up: in 363 days we will be enjoying 11/12/13 14:15! Isn’t that going to be a great one! That is of course if we all still live then.

Funny fact is that apparently it is already known who is going to run the charts next week and starting on 22nd of December it will be Locked Out Of Heaven – Bruno Mars. Now it would be really easy to make a joke about the world’s ending aether way, but I guess, for a Bruno Mars song, it isn’t that bad?

Enjoy your Christmas!
