1.Summer of '69 Bryan Adams. I remember that summer well. Man lands on the moon, the Mets win the pennant, Woodstock and the Age of Aquarius. Come to think of it, I believe the odds were much more favorable for a moon landing then the Mets winning the pennant.

2. Memphis.The Johnny Rivers version.

"Give me an "F", give me a "U".......... You know the rest. The famous cheer by Country Joe McDonald at Woodstock.

CeeCee, I've softened my stance on lonnng songs. I probably only know the AM version (or a Single if one was released) of most that are nominated anyway.

We know I'm an old Pop Tart, or something that rhymes with that. 3 minutes per song is about my attention span. I just finished listening to A Lover's Question, Clyde McPhatter, 2.29, from a 3 CD Box Set I bought today "All That Soul".

:coolio:

OK Pop Tart... :) Can we say then..

Get Ready ~ Rare Earth ( The original and far superior 20 minute version )

Thanks Darryl! :)

We'll just leave it so people can vote for whichever one CeeCee. :)

I don't think I know their version, only The Temptations'. I'll try to acquire it and have a listen. I just had a look in my Australian Hits Book, and it didn't chart here.

rt might have a winner with "Summer of 69". It's topped a few Oldies FM Polls here in Brisbane. And so has "Khe Sanh", but c s, is it known outside Australia ? That's what happened with the Hoodoo Gurus' song last time. Please tell us, American friends ! Do you know it over there ?

:P

You're simply not a true Australian unless you know all the words!! :D

I thought Barnesy sang "last train out of Sydney" until a few years ago. Lyrics aren't my strong point. That's a good clip, Katie. I see the Johnny Walker Red lubricant on the piano. (And it still sounds like last train....)
