1967 was the year in music, with offerings, ranging from Ballads to Rock to Motown to Psychedelia. The
UK invasion of Lulu's "To Sir With Love" from the Sidney Portier classic film. Doors sang "Light My Fire"
and an Australian pop group "The Seekers" hit the charts with "Georgy Girl". Aretha Franklin wanted (and
got) a little "R-e-s-p-e-c-t". With those hits in our ears we headed to Vietnam to hear a whole new set
as well. 1968 was "Born to be wild" (Steppenwolf), a turbulent time in Rock 'n Roll. Raw sounds
competed on the charts with Instrumentals and sweet melodic tunes under laid with solid gold Motown
like the Supremes' "I'm a love child" and Dionne Warwick's "Do you know the way to San Jose?" The
Bee Gees were heard in Brisbane, and Simon and Garfunkel went from lyrical strength to catchy strength.
And nobody could write off the prolific Beatles, whose every song seemed to levitate to the top of the
charts.
