What's Your Popstrology Sign?
What is popstrology?

Popstrology is the science of the pop stars -- a revolutionary method for gaining self-knowledge by examining the alignment of the pop music charts on the date of your birth.

What does pop music have to do with self-knowledge?

Few of us would deny that the pop songs of our childhood played a profound role in shaping our views on life and love, but many fail to realize that this process was already at work when they first entered a world that was fairly humming with radio waves and other, deeper vibrations in the pop universe. Who was the dominant pop star in the year that you were born? Which star and which song ruled the charts at the very moment of your birth? The science of popstrology reveals how the answers to these questions are far from mere trivia, teaching us to read the pop stars carefully for critical insights into our personalities, our career potential, and our personal relationships.

What exactly can popstrology teach me?

Popstrology can be a powerful tool for revealing the source of any number of conditions. Perhaps the roots of your chronic restlessness lie in the fact that you are an ABBA born in the Year of Debby Boone. Or perhaps the key to finally overcoming your crippling sexual inhibition is to acknowledge that you are a Pat Boone born in the Year of Elvis Presley. These and thousands of other possible lessons are to be found in the pop stars, and even popstrological novices can easily learn the tools necessary to reveal them.

"Blue Velvet" by Bobby Vinton was enjoying a 3 week run at the top when I was born, and I'll be damned if I know what that means.

10. Questions, always questions and then there's conception
I get the Shirelles' "Will you still love me tomorrow?" in the US and "Are you still lonesome tonight?" by Elvis. Both songs are questions.

I was curious about what my parents may have been listening to about the time I was conceived. Turns out, they were probably humming along to "Stuck on you" by Elvis and if they had been in England they would have heard the Everly Brothers' "Cathy's Clown" blaring from every radio.

18. American Pie (US) and I'd Like to Teach the World to Sing (UK)
Very cool, and totally accurate. I vacilate between being an enigma and being overwhelmed with schmaltz.
