Do You Remember?


This week’s assignment:

1)  Do you remember your favorite songs in your high school graduation year?  Please tell us all about it.  [Note:  Wikipedia has the Billboard Hot 100 list for each year; Billboard has weekly Hot 100 lists for every year since 1946.]

Since it is reunion weekend for my class, I’m going to broaden the scope of this task just a little bit. Below are events from my senior year:

  • Charles Manson’s cult murders Sharon Tate
  • Woodstock
  • Lt. William Calley is charged with premeditated murder for role in My Lai Massacre
  • Butch Cassiday and Sundance Kid opens
  • Chicago Eight trial
  • Brady Bunch premieres
  • NY Mets win World series
  • Wal-Mart incorporates
  • President Richard Nixon asks ‘silent majority’ for support in Vietnam War
  • Apollo 12 launched
  • First episode of All My Children airs
  • Kansas City Chiefs win Super Bowl
  • Chicago Seven found not guilty
  • First Earth Day proclaimed
