Most people think of San Francisco when they think of the Summer of Love. Granted, a great deal of change did occur in California, but the West Coast wasn’t the only place experiencing change in 1967, as can be attested by the list of songs below.
Michigan, Alabama, Tennessee, and New York were all experience change in their own way, and of course England was being led to new ground, with the Beatles taking charge.
Here’s a list of our favorite pop songs that debuted in the waning days of the Summer of Love;
1) The Letter – The Box Tops
2) Reflections – The Supremes
3) Baby, I Love You – Aretha Franklin
4) Cold Sweat (full length version) – James Brown
5) Funky Broadway – Wilson Pickett
6) San Franciscan Nights – Eric Burden & the Animals (as a ‘Great Miss’)
7) Brown-Eyes Girl – Van Morrison
8) Baby, You’re a Rich Man – The Beatles
