The Slice

Editor’s note

If you are new to The Slice Blog and decide you are going to check out all 5,790 archived blog posts in one marathon sitting, you will discover something.

In a fair number of “No. 1 song on this date” posts, the image of the record is missing. That's because one of my primary sources for these photos has begun disallowing links. And so, retroactively, quite a few pictures of vintage 45s no longer come up.

I always, 100 percent of the time, credit that site when using an image. But that's fine. There are plenty of other sources.

Besides, I have a hunch I am way more interested in old No. 1 songs than most of the blog's readers.

But I came by it honestly. When I was a little kid in the 1960s, my significantly older sister and brother were teenagers. Their lives intrigued me. And one aspect of that allure was their music. That's why I sometimes seem obsessed with pop songs that were hits when I was 10 years old.

Anyway, thanks for checking out the blog.
