It’s time to chat and nothing old hat, please. The coffee is hot, bold and strong. Let’s sit a spell and discuss what’s right and what’s wrong. I have a feeling this is going to be one of those chats.
1967 was an interesting year and in fact, the 1960s were a decade of growing and movement. More than that, these were times of revolution and reform. There was The Civil Rights Act of 1964 and The Voting Rights Act of 1965. The 1960s was an era of slogans like “stop the war”, “New Frontier” and “Great Society”.
In 1967, there were a few interesting quotes for example “We rob banks” -Bonnie and Clyde, “Because I’m worth it” – L’Oreal, “Our repairmen are the loneliest guys in town” – Maytag. Can you imagine these quotes being used today?
There was great music, during the 1960s and 1967 was no exception. Here are the top ten in the US, the UK or Australia in 1967-
To Sir with Love- Lulu, The Letter- Box Tops, Ode to Billy Jo- Bobbi Gentry, Windy- The Association, I’m a Believer-The Monkees, Light my Fire- The Doors, Somethin Stupid- Nancy Sinatra, and Frank Sinatra, Happy Together- Turtles, Groovin-Young Rascals, Can’t Take My Eyes Off You -Frankie Valli
And the cost of living in 1967 in the US is a shocker compared to today-
Average Cost of new house $14,250.00,Average Income per year $7,300.00, Average Monthly Rent $125.00,Gas per Gallon 33 cents.Average Cost of a new car $2,750.00
What a difference fifty years make! If you have memories of the 1960s, please share them.
You know, it wasn’t that long ago
Folds of time scattered your mind
Life, indeed, not tied with a bow
There were the highs and also the lows
Did we parade in masquerade?
Putting on acts and a plethora of airs?
Inviting judgment and gossipy stares?
Time doesn’t exist without a clock
No swinging pendulum or tickety tock
Just a maze of choices and ticking the right box
