Ready to be horrified? This site tells you what song you were conceived to


NO MATTER OUR differences in life, one thing unites us all without fail.

None of us like to think of our parents having it off.

Those of us who have been forced to hear about the circumstances of our conceptions are usually left scarred, reeling, unable to ever again go near Hole 9 of the local pitch and putt course.

Enter the website sensitively titled “Pork Track“. Essentially, you type in your date of birth and it tells you what was riding high (wheh) in the American Billboard Charts at the time.

So, to get the ball rolling for you, we’ve asked for a few examples.

If you were born on the 1st of January, 1980…

Tragedy by the Bee Gees. It’s probably not a prophetic song name, don’t worry. In Ireland, it could have been I Will Survive by Gloria Gaynor, which knocked the Gibbs off the top spot.

If you were born on the 30th of May, 1990…

You were conceived to this, most likely. State. However, there’s a chance in Ireland that it could have been Ride On Time by Black Box or a Jason Donovan tune either.

If you were born on the 18th of November, 1970…

It was Venus by Shocking Blue, meanwhile in Ireland it was Love Grows (Where My Rosemary Goes) by Edison Lighthouse. Tune.

One DailyEdge.ie staffer was conceived in to the dulcet tones of Dana’s song “Totus Tuus”. So, consider yourself lucky.

What are the people on Twitter saying?

Some titles will be pretty apt.

And don’t swap songs with someone of a different generation. It won’t make you feel good.
