    The song you were most likely, ummmm....... playing during that date when you were ummmmmmm conceptually brought into this world?

    By the math and other clues, I have concluded (I Can't Get No Satisfaction) [Stones version] as it was #1 at the time... :D

    My Dad told me when I was a lad that I was conceived to an Elvis Presley record. My mom loved Elvis and one of the highlights of her life when we saw one of his great comeback performances at the International Hotel in Las Vegas in the early 70s. However, I was born in
    1953 and “That’s All Right, Mama,” his first hit was in 1954 so there’s plenty of room for doubt.

    My Mom told me that I was conceived on 31 august 1962, which was the birthday of our Queen. How did she know it so exactly? She had a bit of a sixth sense. She simply knew the day after that she was pregnant. Same with my older brother. Anyway, back to the OP's question, Cliff Richard with Do You Want To Dance was number one in The Netherlands for two weeks already, so I'm sure my parents had heard that song (and probably liked it).

    "Killing Me Softly with His Song" by Roberta Flack was #1 in mid-March, 1973, but I never knew my parents to be fans of that song.

    My guess would be that they didn't have any music on at all. But I sure as heck won't ever ask them!

    Why speculate when you can watch the video?

    Or maybe it's the thought of asking the question. I'd frankly think there was something wrong if my kids asked.

    Probably a Spike Jonez song. Like 'Do You Wanna Buy A Bunny?' or more likely 'Cocktails For Two'.

    All I can tell you is that I was conceived and born on the same couch, by design apparently....

    If there was music playing at the time, it was likely either Buddy Holly, Jerry Lee or Dylan
