Hey kids! Be a part of the 50ish Reunion planning process. Email your suggestions (limit 2) for the Official Reunion Playlist to DJ Snazzy Chaz, Charlie Davis firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are looking for your favorite classic tunes from our high school years (1967 to 1970, in case you’ve forgotten). One-hit wonders are welcome! Together, we can build a classic playlist full of Good Vibrations!
Remember what “albums” and “45s” were?
So many choices! Take a look at the Billboard Top 100 Chart for the first week of June 1967 — The Summer of Love! — as we were preparing to enter to Roosevelt for the first time.
Or skip to May 1970, when we walked (or ran) out the doors to begin new adventures, to a soundtrack that included:
