What's the point?: Forget celestial stars -- the star charts on this site help visitors gain "self-knowledge by examining the alignment of the pop music charts on the date of [their] birth." Read up on the terminology (Birthstars, Birthsongs, Constellations and Dominant Songs) in the Popstrology 101 section, then get started and enter your birth year and find your birthdate. Born between July 27 and Aug. 23, 1980? Then you're an Olivia Newton-John in the Year of Blondie. Perhaps this explains why you sometimes feel like Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.

What to look for: Once you know your Birthstar and Birthsong, check out the constellations associated with your year. For 1980, for example, the collapse of the constellation Disco Ball led the star groupings of Lite & White and Mustache Rock to collide, mutate and form into Reaganrock. Hey, with all those sound waves floating around, it's got to have about as much bearing on your real life as astrology, right?
