What's Love Got To Do With It

I read somewhere about this pop existential theory which says that the number one song on the week of your birth will dictate the theme of the rest of your life. I Googled mine but I didn't arrive at a definitive answer because different charts from different territories came up with different results.

Because it's the oldest music chart, let's start with Billboard Hot 100 (US):

What's love but a sweet old-fashioned notion
What's love got to do, got to do with it
Who needs a heart when a heart can be broken...

Then there's Take 40 (Australia):
There's no comfort in the truth
Pain is all you'll find...

And finally, the UK Top 40:

No New Year's day to celebrate
No chocolate covered candy hearts to give away...

Too bad I couldn't find any Pinoy music chart archives online. :(

So what do these songs say about my life? The first is about being jaded, the second about being unfaithful, and the third about being engaged in a long-distance love affair. Go figure. Hahaha.

Find yours, too!
