the 60's- Friday Pick Six Songs for Cruisin'

Friday, April 24, 2015
The Effin Bear did a pick six of cruising songs as an homage to summer songs. While his were more contemporary, I'm picking my favorite pick six songs for cruising down the road in the summertime of my youth- the late 60's. (I was really too young for these songs when they came out being under 10 in most cases), but they still filled the late 60's and early 70's of my teen years.

These songs evoke imagines of back seats, sandy beaches, young crushes and images of Vietnam on the television news. It was a time when I was too young to really be a part of what was going on in my country, but understanding it enough that I wished I could be. I remember buying a book called "we are the kids your parents warned you about" and it was about the Haight-Ashbury district and the anti-war protests. At even such a young age, oh how I wanted to protest things!

The 60's:

1. Hot fun in the summertime- Sly and the Family Stone
2. Sunshine of your Love: Cream
3. Summer in the City - Lovin' Spoonful
4. On the road again - Canned Heat
5. Going up the country - Canned Heat
6. Nights in White Satin - Moody Blues
