My 1967 Soundtrack!

“There’s nothing you can do that can’t be done.
Nothing you can sing that can’t be sung.
Nothing you can say but you can learn how to play the game.
It’s easy.”

~John Lennon/Paul McCartney

I’m spending this week replaying medleys of the songs that made up the soundtrack of MY teenage life. Today we’re checking out 1967.
It was a coast-to-coast (and worldwide) amalgam of cultural change, political questioning, personal liberation and psychedelic exploration.
The musical year was filled with so many great songs so I couldn’t just do one medley. I had to play two!
From Haight-Ashbury to New York and beyond, the year’s touchstones included the Monterey Pop Festival and the Summer of Love (which explains the last song in the second medley).

    Oh my Ray … I’m glad you did two segments as there was so much great music during our high school years … so many memories flood back of a time when we were young and so full of hope for the future … we were going to change the world — and looking back we did …. individually and collectively we tried to make the world a better place. I think of Paul Temple and the thousands of babies he delivered; of Gill Whittemore and his time as a professor at Harvard and then home to Vermont to give back; of Buddy Dexter and all that he has given to make his hometown a better place to live; of those who went off to Vietnam (Marty Morse for one) to fight a horrible war — and then returned home to a country that did not value the incredible sacrifice they had made. We were teachers, nurses, lawyers, engineers, college presidents, and so much more …. and we had a love of country, community and family. The world is a better place in some small way Ray for what we tried to do. Thank you for helping us relive memories …. can’t wait to see ’68.

    All that being said
