#1 Songs From 1967

Yesterday we played ten #1 songs from 1962, a time when music and life were a little more innocent. Five years later, the world had changed quite a bit. Even though the U.S. was embroiled in a war in Vietnam and there was anger in the streets, it was, as far as music was concerned, the Summer of Love.

There are ten songs that all reached #1 below. If you listened to yesterday’s medley, you will find that music had certainly changed … a lot!

    1967 last year of high school and so much going on!! And the music was certainly changing! And we sure did set some nights on fire. Lulu was interesting and I’m still wondering what she can give me in return! I remember when this song came out(Turtles)I was getting married and thinking what great words to this song!! Man they were wrong!! Seemed that marriage was not meant to be!! So I said goodbye not hello!! Ray didn’t Strawberry have a manager problem which broke them up or was it the news from Billy Joe??!!! I met one of the Rascals don’t remember which one think it was at college,great group!! I am a believer not sure why, how can you not like a group of Monkies! Baby she had it!! Aretha what a voice(sax in there) she sure did get respect!! All great tunes Ray love ya

      Fred, I was thinking about ’67 being your last year in high school when I put this medley together! And then you come along and string the whole damn thing together so well (not unusual) 🙂
      Love Ya!

    Being born in 1953 (just a youngster) these songs were very much part of my upbringing. You have brought back lots of fond memories and I will be rocking to them on my lawn tractor today. The neighbors love seeing me bopping on the mower even though they can’t hear the music ( headphones). Sometimes they ask me what I’m listening to and I tell them. Thank you Ray for giving me these good times and great memories!
