Question of the Day

This was inspired by listening to the “Top Five at Five” on Majic 102.7 driving home last night. They play the top five songs on the radio from this date in a given year, and last night it was 1969. There were some pretty good tunes that summer. That got me to thinking about what year was my favorite summer; 1969 comes in near the top of the list for me. I was sixteen, I had my first car (a ’65 Mustang 2+2), I was doing okay in school (not great, but for me that was better than normal), and it was the summer of Apollo 11 and Woodstock. The traumas of ’68 were a distant memory, and while the Tigers weren’t repeating their run to the World Series, there were the amazin’ Mets. So…

What was your favorite summer?
