In the world of popular music, tastes change so quickly that music from only a handful of years ago can sound like a relic from another era. Which is why it seems so impressive/impossible to look as far back as 115 years ago into the history of the form, but that’s exactly what you can do with a new feature from music site

The feature is billed as a way to “Find the #1 Song on the Day You Were Born,” but it’s a lot more expansive than just that. For any date between today and January 1st, 1900, you can find what people were listening to the most. There’s also a bonus link that will tell you what song you were conceived to (aka the #1  song nine months before you were born), but I actually just want to stop thinking about that now.

To find the #1 song on the day you were born, or any other date going back 115 years, head over to here, where each song also includes an accompanying YouTube video. It’s like a time machine for your ears!
