    Probably easier if you sit this one out.

    Something In The Air was covered by Tom Petty and was on his Greatest Hits record along with Mary Jane's Last Dance. Both songs were never on any other studio recorded album. I found that interesting. Tom's version is my favorite but I am biased.

    The "Summer of Love" was the summer of 1967. The Summer of '69 was all about the moon walk. It was almost as thrilling as this one:

    Wonderful post 2many. Heartfelt, deep, engaging. Unfortunately, I have been suffering some kind of crazy powerful influenza these past two days. Just too weak to adequately process/address.
    But I wanted to say as a guy on the edge of genX/boomer, much appreciated.

    All the "magic" is still bubbling out of it's froth, right here where its always been.
    If we're lucky we'll get some cultural revelation/revolution to blast us out of this material society for a while, again.
    Luckily, to this era's credit, we now even have fields of science pointing out liberating truths (IMO) that previously were only the glimpsed inspirations of religions and philosophies.

    I remember the song being played when it came out it got enough air play to make me remember it. I was 16 and lived in the DC metro area inside the Beltway. A long Hair Hippy radical they called me and most my friends.
